Never seen so many motorcycles!!!
Hey everyone, Been in Bangkok for 2 full days now. I have to say I have never seen more motorcycles/scooters EVER!! Its AWESOME!!
The majority are scooters but probably 40% are little baby sportbikes!!! CBR 150s and TZR 150s and kawasaki has one but I dont now the size 100-200 Im guessing. it is HILAROUS it looks like a little sportbike on bicycle tries im serious they are not wider than mountain bike tires. I will get pictures for you guys.
And I have to say the riders are INSANE the taxi drivers here are F*#KIN' nuts im serious they dont give a F about the bikers they jsut msucle them out of the way. DUring stops the bikes lane split some of the tightest holes I've ever seen. I saw a place to rent but I have to admit im too pansy to ride in this environment. I've been her 48 hours and already saw a guy biff it.
At a police stop where they stop all the bikes im not sure why a guy was rolling around on teh ground grabbing his shin and his bike was being picked up by some poeple the cops were busy smoking cigarettes watching him writhe around. Not pretty but I dont think it was anything too serious. No blood and from the looks of him just going to have a nasty bruise. But still no good.
I'll get some pictures for you guys of these bikes and riders..
Oh and if any of you have witnessed Thai people getting on an escalator its the funniest thing EVER!!! They come up to it and have to stop and let a step or two go by then they half leap onto it. I had to bite my lip when I found out what the huge hold up was at al the escalators. its funny 95% of them do it!!
Ok guys just checking in. back to my delicious Pummello!
