Re: Freak motorcycle occurrence, or a regular happening?

Teens like to bling up their bikes and part of this process includes removing the protective belt/chain cover so, no, this is not a design fault of the vehicle.

Re: The Digital Surgery

If it is quick enough for you then don't bother.

Re: Power fluctuations - electric supply

Yes, almost a daily occurrence where we live (not in Hua Hin). Very little you can do aside from hope the electric dept upgrade the transformers and supply and get a decent UPS for your computer.
