British motorcyclist dies in Rawai crash

Recommended Posts

Why is it questionable if just going to 7-11 3klm away?  When I take my road trips, I'm still wearing comfortable jeans, but over them serious shin guards, "combat boots", and some serious protective gloves, along with the upper body armor. 
I've got black Kevlar lined jeans, have inserts for knee and thigh armour, made by Red Route. Spot on.

70 years of age and still on a big bike. 

 

Interesting. 

 

 

In what way?  Do you think there's a problem with that?

Questionable as a ‘style choice’ for a 70 y/o - clearly a tongue in cheek comment.

kudos for still riding a motorcycle, but wearing denim at 70.  That is questionable.

RIP to the Phuket Brit too, only 2 weeks back we lost a 44 yo Swede in a motorcycle accident here in Wichian.

🙄What should a 70 yr old wear when riding his cycle? Jeans are for all ages, genders, sizes,  income, & nationalities. ( Wearing Speedos- that is a different topic.)

I guess Somchai wasn't off his face on yaba or 3 times over the limit so he hung around. Dont see that often.

70 isnt so bad to check out. RIP

Have you read the article?

Pickup started turning right.

Biker overtaking where forbidden.

Overtaking forbidden 60 m before every crossing/T-junction for good reason.

And usually clearly marked with sign and solid line from that distance.

You beat me to it. My girl drives only a 300. The bigger ones is to high for a 148 cm lady🤣 . And a bit too heavy.There is no age limit on driving anything though. Once a biker always a biker.

I just turned 87 and hit 150 kph on my big bike yesterday.  I was asleep, but a nice driver next to me took a video.  Boy, they made a big deal out of it, but nobody died.  Well, I didn't die.  Caused 183 accidents, so they told me.  I can still catch a fly....superman reflexes.  I weave in and out of traffic at 200 kph......

Hard to believe.

70 isnt so bad you must be joking. See how you feel when 69. Average is 78 but really now nearer 80. I bloody hope so. Im almost 66 but feel 16 with aches and a few pains.
