Should the headline not read '30 yr old crashes motorbike into a tree and dies.


How the hell did the bike get up there?

Thais have unique driving skills. A car went through the top of a tree opposite my house, and they appear to be particularly skilled at overturning 18-wheelers, something we would really struggle to do. Thais don't.


Just think how good they'd be in a circus. No training required.
