Haha great video. Made in Belgium? I seems like I did reqonize some parts of the street-race.
This is a French magazine / channel but the race could well have been in Belgium. What caught my attention to this video was the Versys 1000 in the race-
If you have a crazy Thai girlfriend and see this.....run!!
Love that "Hello Kitty" gun - does it make pink holes?
Saw this sign on the 407 south of Songkhla, it's a ten km long one-lane road:
What I want to know is: how far is it to Chiang Mai?!
It's a very, very rainy Saturday here so I thought I share some Indian music with you which I came across surfing the net.
Those are the guys who assemble Harleys when they're not dancing in the hills.
I liked the "Indian Nipple Song" too.
Spotted entering Nan off R1091, (my fave road & way into Nan.)
and I have to confess that I mis-read it as the Nitwit School. Oh well.
I've got a photo of the same sign for the same reason David... Up early just cruising around, waiting for the sleepy heads and Thai accomplices to wake up...
"Warning, road works ahead"......only trouble is, I can't read the thai signs yet !! :d
"Riding in Asia can be exhausting!"
And for all planning their trips to Northern Laos, and need to learn a bit of Chinese, here a quick lesson to get you started:
(not my own pics, got them from the web some time ok, but I hope it was ok to share them with you)
This one is not motorcycle related but it's still a good story - a 13-year-old adopted boy steals his father's Benz and drives it across Europe, from Italy into Austria, then on to Germany, trying to visit his sister in Poland. He even gassed it up twice!
Spotted in Houei Xai last week, & the funniest thing I've seen for awhile on a motorbike.....
Just popping down to the shop on a Honda Wave to pick up a new TV & Satellite dish!
just strap the dish onto your back & away you go.
I was highly impressed & wondered whether they were going home to set up a cable TV network in their remote village somewhere, such was there ingenuity.
Brisbane airport billboard for new Thai connection. The Thai's must have got this printed without consulting any Australians by the look of it!
If you tell the Chef at this place you don't like his food this is what he may say to you.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
Amazing Thailand!! Patong beach :lol:
Like this one!
Spotted in Chiang Khong recently
not sure I'd really like to be caught riding in this, but then again...
Some air in the tire would improve the ride!
Super Mario Sound effects make life better
555 For the Russian pimps & hookers of Soi Bangla Patong!! :lol-sign:
Reckon this belongs in Fallibilities / Funnies / Stuff Ups..........
"records show that most road fatalities involve motorcycle drivers and passengers who did not wear helmets." so.... the BIB will give them some padding for the helmets that they don't wear?! You can't make this $hit up!! :lol-sign:
Helmet padding to be given out
BANGKOK: -- Some 500,000 units of inner padding for helmets will be handed over to motorcycle drivers and passengers in Bangkok to boost road safety during the upcoming Songkran celebration.
The Metropolitan Police Bureau has instructed all police stations to distribute the padding to motorcyclists and passengers, especially those who take motorcycle taxis, in a move to encourage them to wear helmets as part of the safety campaign. The Road Accident Victims Protection Co will provide the padding.
Previous records show that most road fatalities involve motorcycle drivers and passengers who did not wear helmets.
Songkran Pakchokdee, director of the Anti-Alcohol Organisations Network, said the Alcoholic Beverage Control Committee was concerned that revellers who get drunk will ride motorcycles on secondary roads while going on errands to buy more booze. He said this caused many accidents.
"The committee is looking for ways to stop revellers from doing this, which will include a ban on the sale of alcohol during the Songkran holiday period." He said the ban should be enforced for all three days of the holiday, so drunken revellers do not go out on motorbikes to buy more alcohol.
The proposal for the ban will be submitted to the National Alcohol Beverage Policy Committee, which is headed by Deputy Prime Minister Plodprasop Suraswadi, for final approval.

So after Songkhran we will read that most road fatalities involved motorcycle riders and passengers who were wearing helmet paddings?
