    Guys, having been in and around many different parts of Asia for over 40 years the greatest single piece of advice I can offer to riders is to SLOW DOWN. This has been a continual bug bear of mine for years. I have lost numerous friends over the years, several involved in speed related accidents. Take your time, enjoy the scenery and who cares if you arrive an hour later...at least you do so alive.

    I make no apologies for what I write now. Malaysian riders, you guys are amongst the worst I have ever seen. You are so used to doing crazy speeds on the great Malaysian highways, 160-180++ not uncommon and then you get on Thai roads and continue riding at crazy speeds. The number of times I have been passed by Malaysian bikers on everything from sports bikes to GS's going far over the speed limit is insane. Think of your families. Your biggest priority is to return home safely to them. SLOW DOWN.
