Last weekend it was Nat at the Speedway track (get well soon mate!) and now yours truly has to admit to joining the club. Yesterday afternoon I was out racking up the miles on my new Bonnie in anticipation of it's first service this morning. I'd travelled north out of town on the 107 to Chang Dao and then cut across to Phrao on the 1150 - a great scenic road with no debris or "catch you out" corners. Gas up at Phrao for the trip back to town. I'm 5km south of Phrao at about 5:15 on a straight section, minding my own business and generally enjoying life when suddenly the peace is interrupted by the sight of 3 kids on a small motorbike pulling out about 10m in front of me - no indicator, no looking e.t.c. No chance of avoidance so it's crash, bang, wallop - Pikey and the Bonnie make heavy contact with the rear end of their bike and we all go for a slide down the road. Ouch!!! I'm reasonably OK, just a bit bashed and bruised, same for the 3 little feckers on the other bike. But the Bonnie - oh my beauty, how sad you look :cry: The list is long but includes bent forks, dented petrol tank, busted clocks, torn seat and numerous scratches and dings mainly down the left hand side. Am off back to Phrao today with the good folks at Niyom to get the bike and get the damage assessed - photos will follow. I hope I can get some $$$ out of the family of the blind little git who was driving but as they look like they don't even have a pot to piss in, it might be down to my insurance company. One last thing - I was wearing a Dianese jacket, Roof full-face lid and Alpinestars gloves so damage to me is limited but it would be a very different story judging from my kit if I was one of the t-shirt and flip-flop boys. Cheers & ride safe, Pikey.
