This is CCTV footage in the attached topic. Very strange, just as reported the bike veers off to the right for no apparent reason.

He just turned to the right and headed for a tree.

Murder-suicide?

Rather strange, almost macabre conclusion. I would think that the mortician will be looking for natural causes, stroke or heart failure. I know the rider was relatively young, but it can still happen.

Turbulence and slipstream created by the bus and SUV ahead of the motorcycle could have been enough to unsettle a lightweight machine giving it little possibility of recovery.

The high passenger seating position on a lot of these modern bikes raises the CofG and that can’t help stability.

Why do posts and trees by the roads in Thailand all have magnets imbedded in them? There can be no other explanation for the number of vehicles of all types that are drawn into them on a daily basis.

Do people on motorbikes ever fall asleep? It has never happened to me but I wonder if other people have ever had such an experience.

I have come close to it, so I can imagine people actually falling asleep.
