Woman's 1000cc BMW ends up hanging in a tree - she's seriously injured in hospital

Recommended Posts

Thai people should not be allowed to drive more than 75cc

they have absolutely no driving skills and not respect traffic rules 

In this case i only pity the 🌲

Firstly I do hope she recovers 

 

I also notice from the photo that there doesn't seem to be any tread on the front tyre, it seems that some Thais are riding big bikes on public roads on slicks - not only is that illegal but also not very sensible

No real driving test + un-experienced driver + way too powerful a machine = utter insanity

Why doesnt anyone suggest they have a road law reform? It's obvious they have a serious problem here - just to pull over to get fuel I have to literally honk my horn for 3 times they ignore all indications and are incapable of handling basic traffic so cause a traffic jam - its insane

Yes and where is the force to take care of such matter - no where to be seen!

Drunk girlfriends: Teerak, I bet you can't jump that cute bush over there (tree was far away, like Dougals cows in Father Ted).

 

Teerak on Beemer: "Hold my Leeo"

These people have more money than sense and experience. Probably gone from a Honda 150 to this. Clueless and deadly !

Looks like another big bike in the wrong hands , they are out there folks.

They are everywhere, long time co-worker member of the Weasels out of Florida died last year after getting plastered and crashing  into the cement road barriers. Coming  home (Boston) from Cape Cod I had a line of big bikes fly past me at very high speed. Later up the road I saw what was left of 2 bikes that hit the center barrier and look like they exploded. Not a pretty sight, what's that expression? Speed Kills.

Done it myself.

But with a rigid framed Triumph sidecar outfit back in the mid 80's.

Had to walk to a phone box, call work about 4 miles down the road, to send a couple of guys to help me get it down out of the tree.

Straighten it a up a bit, and carry on riding to work.

The boss must have docked your wages for being late too?

What relevance does that have to do with what transpired?

 

 

 

 

In Australia a long time ago, there was a guy with one of the biggest BMW bikes berating his girlfriend after she had fallen off it riding solo, and the fairings got scratched.

Bloody idiot, allowing an inexperienced small rider on a bike that size. She was standing on tiptoe at rest.

The relevance is many women are not big enough or strong enough to handle a large and heavy bike successfully. I am 1.68 m tall, 92 kg. I stick to a humble scooter.

To quote Clint Eastwood, man's got to know his limitations. Or woman, in this case.

It's obvious that most people who comment here never came close to a BMW 1000 RR

or even riding one [or any other "big bike" for that matter].

Nobody knows what actually happened - or what skill level the lady has.

 

Why the weight or size of a rider would matter is just as much nonsense as most of the other comments.

 

Let people ride their bikes !

Most riders are completely harmless and responsible and no danger to anybody.

You're right. I've never ridden a big bike. Why would I want to get on something that has a better than average chance of killing me?

The statistic  80%  of road deaths in Thailand are attributable to motorbike riders ( either themselves or others ) makes a mockery of your last sentence.
