You should have read the story in Thai like I did. If it had been translated word for word Thaivisa would never have heard the end of it.

Why is a 69 year old farang riding a bike at all in Thailand ?

The roads are death traps & bad enough in a car.

You oldees out there sell your bikes. Sad but true

69 is not a good time to pass on at all. Wait until you get there and maybe you will review that opinion. 

Slightly off topic,

I'm 63, I wish I'd passed at 50, before my divorce rape, when I thought there was still a God that rewarded the just and virtuous..

Was a with a pal just a few vehicles behind when this happened, didn't see incident but everybody was saying his bike was clipped by the other vehicle and he slid under Lorry. I have been here 12 years and have never seen such a sickening sight, The poor mans head was flattened. Also sickening was the amount of people clicking away on their phones mostly Thais but there were a few Falange at it as well. Can't understand these moronic comments that at 69 he has had a good run. Saw one foreigner throwing up but it didn't seem to bother the Thais  too much.  You see this carnage everyday here but this was just too much, hope his family's and friends are spared the photos

No disrespect. But it is funny they even need an autopsy unless they are looking for booze, heart attack, or something to pin it on the foreigner. 69 is a fairly good age to pass on. When it is your time, it is your time. Don't be so serious.

When you are 69, you will not think that 69 is a "good time" to pass on.  I am 77 and certainly do not think that my time is up just yet.

As the saying goes, "there but for the grace of God go I", and I say this because the amount of times that I have been just a few centimetres away from being clipped by speeding trucks, lorries and even motorbikes is unbelievable.

 

Some of these drivers have absolutely no idea of how to judge distance and space and if you want proof, look at the amount of times traffic comes to a standstill when two trucks with metres to spare either side of them, have to slow down and stop or slowly crawl past one another because they can't judge the distances.

 

There is everything wrong and absolutely nothing right with the driving/drivers here in Thailand and having a lazy police force only exacerbates the problem.

 

So sad for this poor guy, RIP.
