Bangkok Dumb & Dangerous: Episode 1: Urban Survival

People often ask me what it's like to ride a motorcycle in Downtown Bangkok. So I made this video of a typical day trip to answer some of those questions:

Ha! I loved it. You are hilarious, way to put a funny spin on riding in chaos.

I bailed out of one taxi there because I didn't like the pilots driving.

great vid! looking forward to your next one

never did Bangkok, but I spend plenty of time riding a chicken-killer in the south (ie riding on purpose on the wrong side along the ditch in order to make a right turn )

Trailer for the series

Again thanks for the compliments.
MM good to know that crazy scooter driveres arent just a south east asia phenomenon.
SR1, we'll see you when you get into town.
Cuttle never heard it called a chicken killer before .

Ok since you asked...
Here is the trailer for the Dumb & Dangerous series:
