  1. Nothing special - just a small crash at a track in Thailand late last year. Had ridden 3 hours to get to the track, then a few hours on the track. Very tired and had too much front brake as I leaned into the corner.

    Good for a laugh.

  2. That was pretty funny actually. Glad your ok
  3. Haha, glad I could please.

    I've got another one where I ride into a bush, will have to put that one on later :)
  4. Well done. :LOL:
  5. Whereabouts in thailand is this track? I know there's one near Pattaya
  6. We can all identify with the disgusted removal and throwing away of the gloves :LOL:

  7. Just glad you are alright.
  8. It's up in the north, Chiang Rai, about 3 hours from Chiang Mai. Only opened late last year. $10 to ride for the whole day!

  9. That is awesome! I've been to Chang Mai before. Have to keep that track in mind when i get back there. Was it a rental bike? expensive crash?

  10. No, my own bike. And as you'd expect in Thailand, the repair bill was next to nothing. Scratched exhaust guard and right fairing. At the same time I replaced two other fairings that had scratches on it from when I bought it. I think total cost to replace them all was about $90.

    In Thailand, you don't bother with sliders, it's cheaper to just replace the bits as you need.

  11. That was awesome. Almost like the bike was too tired and decided to lie down.
