    Traffic in Bangkok is horrible. Too many cars, crazy bus drivers and most importantly…no rules of the road. This isn’t too much of a problem for me because I have a motorcycle and a motorbike. I breeze through rush hour traffic; occasionally clipping side mirrors, and frequently risking my life. Motorbikes can be super scary […]
