It was a Ford Ranger pickup...a ute  awe call them in Australia...not a heavy wheeled vehicle as you are alluding to with the Lorry comment.

 

The story should have been 'old expat who can't ride a motorbike falls under ute"

 

Its a sad result for the bloke but lets not get carired away.

Jeez mate read it, he was clipped and then went under the Lorry !!

It must have been a Thai. They have this morbid fascination with death and injury - you only have to see how crowds quickly form at a road accident or at a building on fire. They can also be a nuisance at a "scene of crime" when there is the need to preserve it.

 

you quite often see this behaviour in less developed or developing countries where many people lead  basically very dull and boring lives, anything that happens to bring something other than the normal drudgery into their day becomes absolutely fascinating; notice how locals walking along or riding motorcycles will stare at something ff to the side rather than pay attention to where they are going/what they are doing.

Exactly the same in India. I remember one instance when an Indian guy was staring at me he fell straight over a sign in the middle of the footpath.

Only until everything is set up, just right...

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.

It is a good position to be in as well
