    There used to be a bunch in Adair and Cherokee counties in OK too. I have busted my ass many times, sometimes just trying to stand back up. :rofl

    I have 3 of the Interphones, and although I like it, my next one might be a Sena if the firmware really works with the Interphone/blueant.

    Well, the boss and I made it back to Thailand and the weather is as boring as when we left...still around 90 during the day and 70 at night. I'm glad you all missed the last round of big storms and all the ice and even got out yesterday and today to ride.

    Cambodia is a real motorcycle culture. Everybody rides a bike in one way or another so it was fun being int he middle of that. Of course 97% of what's on the road looks like the old Honda 90 step-throughs of the 60s and 70s, except that they're almost all 125cc. Lots of clever uses for the little bikes though, made possible because most of the terrain is flat. Getting around, we usually took what is referred to there as a Tuk Tuk.

    The one below is pretty posh and much heavier duty than most...

    Mouth or one of you guys should be able to replicate the "hitch" without too much trouble and start a new business.

    In fact, I could have sworn I saw Mouth in one.

    Professional Driver and all, but then again maybe it was the hamock...

    The tourist police ride the stylish red bikes (Honda Baja).

    The food was fantastic and the prices very, very cheap

    Of course Angkor Wat was really incredible. Lots and lots of different temples stretching from the 1100s to 1400s. We spent 3 days touring the different sites and barely scratched the surface,

    [​IMG]

    We even took a ride on the largest lake in SE Asia (Lake Tonle). During the dry season it's about 3,000 sq. kilometers in size, but grows to over 12,000 during the rainy season. Several thousand people live on the lake in either floating houses or on piers that have to be atleast 40 feet tall because of the difference in the lake level during the year.

    OK, I've bored everybody enough by now so I'll stop. I'd have posted pictures while in Cambodia, but for some reason PhotoBucket wouldn't allow me to post while there. Or was that my flip phone that did that?

    Hope you're all doing well. More pics to come from Thailand. Did I mention we're having a great time here?

    Lazy Buggers. Can't believe you're all sleeping. It's only 3:00 in the morning. Oh well, the Irish Pub next door is just starting Happy Hour so guess I'll have to go imbibe. OK, so it's 4:00pm here.

    Great pictures JaiDee. Looking forward to seeing them all when you get back. Maybe you could have a story night? I've got one of those computer projectors you can borrow!

    Well, apparently I'm not since I just saw this and I'm sitting at the airport waiting to board now. I need to come back out here and ride some time. My brother's leaving next week or I'd say y'all need to get together and do some riding.
