police says the motorbike lost control at the tight curve and collided with the pickup truck.

I.e. He was driving too fast.

The tarmac on Patong Hill is awful and any sort of moisture makes it extremely slippery, could be a mitigating factor maybe?

More likely to be seated on stone benches outside 7/11 drinking Leo beer than on couches.

Again and counting.

Sad but true these tourists don't know what they are doing.

Nightly excursion on a scooter with pillion rider in a foreign country on a hilly road.

Do they have such hills in Siberia (where most Russian tourists come from)?
