  1. New electric scooter models to Thailand

    the other thing to think/ask about is whether the bike can be registered or legal to ride on the road; otherwise potential problems with insurance and police.
  2. Car sales report for Jan-Aug 2017

    interesting. you can look at the stats (monthly and year to date) on the DLT website http://apps.dlt.go.th/statistics_web/statistics.html the link on the left under the first '2560' with flashing 'update' gives overall sales (cars, pickups,trucks, bikes etc) with columns marked รย.1(cars) รย.2 (vans?) รย.3 )pick-ups) basically giving the new car stats under the 2nd flashing 'update' are the new car stats by brand - ( first link on left for overall)
  3. and it is national what that it got a red flag in the first place?!
  4. seems that the only smart part was the company selling the gadgets
  5. 555. No leaks on Sept 27th but one massive leak on August 25th!
  6. so not having them, just announcing a future date that may will be the next next year (again).
  7. If we see an illegal police check point can we take a photo and claim a cash reward!
  8. The old distraction trick. Who cares if she was teleported, swam, flew, walked or was driven; where is she and more importantly why was she let go? Of course there will never been an answer to the last question!
  9. it is about time that they tried to stop the mix of Animism and Buddhism beliefs.
  10. Overdue red licence plate drivers face Bt10,000 fine

    The problem is the car dealerships not doing the paperwork, so the dealer should be fined not the buyer. That way the dealer will not let a car go until it has the proper plates.
  11. Born to fight: excise chief seeks Olympics glory

    and i could've been an F1 Champion 2 or 3 times by now; if only for my Ma.
  12. i dare say part of the poem describes many a' expat in Asia I am sick o' wastin' leather on these gritty pavin' stones, An' the blasted Henglish drizzle wakes the fever in my bones; Tho' I walks with fifty 'ousemaids outer Chelsea to the Strand, An' they talks a lot o' lovin', but wot do they understand? Beefy face an' grubby 'and— Law! wot do they understand? I've a neater, sweeter maiden in a cleaner, greener land! On the road to Mandalay, etc. Ship me somewheres east of Suez, where the best is like the worst, Where there aren't no Ten Commandments an' a man can raise a thirst; For the temple-bells are callin', and it's there that I would be— By the old Moulmein Pagoda, looking lazy at the sea. The full poem here https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Departmental_Ditties_and_Ballads_and_Barrack-Room_Ballads/Mandalay
  13. obviously the Thais down south are very polite. If that was tried in some parts Central or North Thailand they'd be scrapping a few Malay bikers off the road.
  14. probably a bargain because "In late July 2017, the Dallas Police Department instructed all personnel to stop carrying the P320 pending an investigation. There are concerns that the firearm may discharge when it is dropped and the back of the slide hits the ground at about a 30-degree angle. ..... Internet publications, such as TheTruthAboutGuns.com, conducted independent tests that appear to confirm potential drop firings (at a 40% rate).[Another test has shown that the P320 may discharge when the magazine hits the ground first after the gun is dropped. On 8 August 2017, Sig Sauer issued a notice that they would upgrade all P320s to address the issue." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SIG_Sauer_P320#Reviews Though it makes a good excuse for shooting someone. "i didn't mean to shoot him, i just dropped the gun!"
  15. and they are slowly dropping the guaranteed coverage of deposits http://www.dpa.or.th/ewt_news.php?nid=320&filename=index___EN
