Continuing my series of hair-raising motorcycle rides around the world (here’s Rome, the German Autobahn and slightly more sedate Hong Kong), here’s a you-are-there view of a ride through heavy traffic in Bangkok, Thailand’s capital and largest city. What this driver lacks in speed he makes up for in skill–this is almost like a video game, except the obstacles are very real and very lethal!

An added bonus is the soundtrack, predictably (but amusingly) “One Night in Bangkok” by Murray Head from Chess, one of my favorite 80s songs.
