I didn't see what road it was, only that it was steep. That could be one of several. Do you know which Soi they're referring to?

Probably soi1 between Maenam and Lamai.

I say ride at a speed just slightly higher than the traffic flow, if you can, that way you have more control over your situation.

No, that way you run into someone in front of you!

I agree sounds like Soi 1, a joy to ride along in the daytime where you get great mountain views and can also see the obvious hazards. A nightmare in the dark .....

I always thought Sonora Pass in Yosemite was the scariest road I'd every driven, then I met Soi 1 then I met Soi 3. There are some crazy gradients on Soi 3.

If turning left onto a main road after looking right to see if anyone is coming in your lane be sure to look left as there may be someone on the other side passing and in your lane.

Driving along a main road today I was turning left and some **** on a bike tried to overtake me inside into the corner. Lucky for him I left him enough room. I was in a good mood..... 😁
