Thanks to Jeff for posting that up. He's been swamped at work, and took the time to do that. I appreciate it.

I just checked the .pdf file, and it was missing 8 pages. That happened when i converted the word file to .pdf. I assumed that the conversion was good. My mistake. I've sent Jeff a new file with all 25 pages.

Thanks for reading. We were treated like kings at the factory.

Awesome read. I'm definitely going to have to check out the factory at some point (maybe 08 or 09).

During the 2000 Spanish ISDE I spent a day touring the old GasGas factory and received the same type of hospitality, these people are very passionate about what they do and it showed.

Part of the day I also got a chance to see the new factory, which was still a couple of months away from opening, and that tour was give by Narcis (sp) and his business partner's daughter Olga.

Craig your writeup was first class!! Thanks.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us in such great detail.
I would think Trail Rider magazine would be interested in your story and photos for their magazine. I know their readers would! You should contact Paul Clipper and see if you could submit it. This deserves to be read by all.
