Re Panicks post the only thing that makes sense is Tip 1 .... Always wear a crash helmet. The rest is a load of Bollocks: I have had cops chase me in pick up going thru a red light (unintentionally).

I ride a Merida cross Bike, ideal for for the taller rider, plenty of tire clearance in case yr caught in mud and as comfortable as a bike can be, Uses standards road tires( 28 in) so you don't have to drag heavily treaded Mountain bike tires.

Why are helmet laws enforced?

Always wear my cycling helmet, 3 years ago a mate lost his life because he didn't bother.
Ridden MC's for 40 years and always wore decent helmet, I wouldn't ever put those Plastic local things on my head.
Locals thinks its cool to go helmet less and sadly a few farangs too. [-X

Death at Big C Junction

I'm skeptical of the 7468 fatalities mentioned.. I am never the first away from those lights, let someone else test the the water before me. One thing to bear i mind re figures, Thailand only counts fatalities at the scene so if you croak on the way to, or in the hospital, you are not in official t...
