another thought I had - is the U-Turn in the photos the one you wanted to take?

if yes, you switched lanes too late.

I agree but I think the U-turn does not matter at all.

He changed the lane and then the collision happened. It does not matter why he changed the lane.

It's not the responsible for riders to observer if someone in front of them changes a couple of lanes. The rider in front must make sure he changes into an "empty" lane.

I guess you didn't see the u-turn in time?...why did you try to go over the solid line? Did you have enough time to indicate properly?  


I always look over my shoulder as well when doing such movements, and never steer abrupt so the bikers behind me have time to anticipate.


I would say it's your fault but this is thailand....


Yesterday we were having a walk, from behind came a jogger which was a farang. Suddenly the farang crossed the road but there was a Thai on a racing bicycle just passing him....the cyclist had to break hard to avoid him.the farang even didn't notice what happened at all i guess. Later the Thai passed us walking with his bicycle at hand...guess he got so shocked from it that he didn't dare to cycle there anymore. But it was the farangs fault, he suddenly crossed the street without looking..it happened 3 meters away from us.
