      I was going down to a surf spot called Bingin and they’d just put tarmac and a load of gravel down on the road…i wiped out, bike landed on top of me, and dragged me along. was stuck until someone pulled it off me

    Whoa! That foot wound looked gnarly. Luckily it was just scrapes.

    Yikes! This is why I don’t ride scooters in Taipei! I’m glad you managed to make it through without more than a few nasty raspberries. Those accidents don’t always end so well!

    For the travelers out there, these things may not be the best regulated in SE Asia, but they can really do a number on you! Helmet optional? Wear the bloody helmet! And pay close attention to the road conditions (Sorry they jumped up and bit you, Victoria). Loose gravel, dirt, etc. is one thing to look out for. Same for wet patches, especially wet manhole covers and sewer grates. Most importantly, beware reckless drivers who believe “it is written.” There are some real twits on the road all over Asia, so keep that head on a swivel!

    Hope the rest of your travels are safe and less painful than this, Victoria.
