Re: Police checkpoints in Hua Hin

How are the points allocated? How can we see how many we have accumulated?

Re: Police checkpoints in Hua Hin

A farang gets killed/injured, it's reported everywhere - bad publicity. How many times do we hear of a Farang struggling because they were injured riding a motorcycle they weren't insured to ride in the first place. Yes, Thais do it every day, but it doesn't attract the same bad publicity. It doesn'...

Re: Police checkpoints in Hua Hin

I'm confirming nothing. However, if you're asking whether I'm happy that the seasonal loonies (including some good friends of mine) are being targetted, yes, I'm delighted. You can usually anticipate how a bad Thai will drive, but the seasonal loonies are the proverbial pain. Problem is, the penalti...

Re: Thai women second fattest in Asia

Good points, but I don't think any survey is even required to see how the nation has ballooned over the last 30 years. and yes, I am a regular visitor to Isaan as well. Ranking in Asia? No idea.

Re: Police checkpoints in Hua Hin

I was in that jam yesterday thinking how thick headed it is that they block the entire access to Bangkok hospital for any vehicle travelling south bound. There's no way an ambulance could get through that in a hurry if it had to, i can't believe they are "allowed" to do that. I have seen this scena...

Re: Police checkpoints in Hua Hin

Most Thais, if riding illegally have the good sense to do a u-turn and avoid being stopped. And cause a bigger danger to everyone else on the road by swerving around then going up the wrong way. I'd say that was more cause for a fine than someone riding on a Swedish license. Sorry mate but that sta...

Re: Police checkpoints in Hua Hin

I know 2 wrongs don't make a right and all that, buy I actually applaud the 80% Farang and 100% motorcycles. Many Thais are illegal, but do not present the same level of risk to other road users. Yes, they do crazy things, but they are consistently bad to the extent their antics become the norm, and...

You should be able to get a quality battery from any PC repairer or accessory shop, rather than a cheap generic in bargain shops.
OK, I'm probably a cheapskate, but why would you bother? My cheapies last at least 2 years, and when power starts to drop, it takes seconds to put another in. :?

Try the 20 Baht shops - you'll find the 150 Baht strips for 20 Baht. That's where I get mine, and they work fine (not sure if they have CR2025 though).
Mine is a Ford Ranger key fob, but no idea of the battery number.
