Bangkok! Polluted and crowded hell on earth for car drivers and pedestrians. An Asian city where motorbikes come into their own. Three up, four up on a bike is not unusual in peak hour and don't those GP styled 150cc water-cooled bikes absolutely fly! Desirable as all hell those little Thai delights beckon to the real motorcyclist. Clip-ons and radical expansion chambers and real flash styling and graphics catch the eye. But taste the sensuous bike delights of Bangkok at your peril for the frantic traffic, pollution and numerous road hazards will catch the unwary.
