Sad end for American motorcyclist
On the Phrae 11 highway, 6 or 7 pax in the car returning from a 'merit-making' ceremony (they always say that), overtaking too slow on a bend with inadequate visibility. Kenneth Murray(?) I think was his name, approaching at high speed took no evasive action, which was odd as a wide shoulder was available, and died on impact.Car was passing the truck while the bike was approaching.
Saw it was a Honda PCX 150 which is capable of 102kms/hr flat out.approaching at high speed took no evasive action
A few ppl knew Ken but no-one has commented as to whether he was possibly a novice rider as putting the bike down in the dirt would have saved his life. No apparent braking also odd.Saw it was a Honda PCX 150 which is capable of 102kms/hr flat out.
He should've been hard on the brakes and off into the rather smooth looking dirt shoulder and he'd be alive today.
Typical dickhead Thai driver in the car though overtaking on a corner with little to no vision of oncoming traffic.
Horrible....Phuket mayhem >
