    That's a CBR400. Heard about the guy.
    He cannot even ride proper. 400CC is already too big for his set of riding skills.

    I know the guy as well.

    He's not the greatest or most skilled at getting his knee down, but for touring and adventuring you don't need to be.
    He doesn't boast of being a riding god like some other biker gangs out there, he just get's out there and does his thing.

    Like this:



    He's on another plain, another dimension. A place perhaps the SSR boys go to when they dream their crazy dreams...

    SSR ride like that! 5555!!! You kidding right?
    How many rides have you been on with them?
    I heard you get left behind a lot. On bike and on foot.
    Is that why you call yourself an independent?

    Regarding bikers, i had a lot of respect for them back in the UK, but here, i have no respect for the 2 wheeled lemmings that assume an oncoming car will move out of the way just because their side of the traffic is stood still. A biker experience the wrath of my driving when i refused to stop or slow down when he insisted on driving the wrong side of the lane, which resulted in him nearly losing control, it gave him a nasty shock though, with much enjoyment from myself. His ranting was met by my police friend who was fortunately in the car with me at the time.

    I'm just curious, as i ride a bike myself. Have the expats adopted the Thai style of suicidal riding?
    You bullied, you laughed, you lied, you lost!

    I hate that as well. I've been there and seen a farang drone just pull out on his scooter like a thai would without looking.
    Some truly are native in that respect.
    One thing I do is never be in the cycle lane completely as often you have a thai pull out and head in your direction, squeezing two bikes through that lane at once ain't easy!
    Sometimes highway riding can be worse than in the towns and cities...

    How long has a 400 been considered a 'big bike'?

    If you think that riding bikes through traffic at irresponsible speeds is 'cool', then ask Dalton (a member here) how 'cool' it is when it goes wrong and you kill someone.

    Take it to the track.

    I've not found that to be the case. Many seem to be stuck up their own arses.

    It is usually considered a 'big bike' in Thailand.

    Despite Dalts riding fairly slowly at the time of the accident.

    1997? You must be old!
    You mean a CBR900RR? or CBR929RR? or CBR954RR?

    Agree it not a big bike. Small in fact.

    No it not. Even your 750 Sabre I would call a middle weight bike.

    No, I meant what I said 918, though it was 96 not 95. I'm 35.
