  1. Chad…you just showed in graphic detail, why the scooter rent scam is so widespread throughout Thailand..how much did it cost you ? Still got your passport ?

  2. I envisaged you taking evasive action from a stray animal and launching into the jungle at high speed. Thankfully nothing that eventful. Stay safe and Happy B’day, Chad. ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  3. Chad… The sweatshirt is AWESOME!!… but my wife has appropriated it. Let me know when the 1 million-plus sweatshirt comes out! and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

  4. I always wondered why you don’t rent dual-sports? Sure you are mostly on smooth roads, but far too often you have ended up on dirt roads to take you to that out of the way place.

  5. Ur now married to the land. Once you break skin and bleed from the earth attacking you, now you belong to Thailand too! Lol
    Happy birthday to you man

  6. Happy Birthday. I hope you didn’t get hurt too much. With a motorbike this can always happens. But at least you are smart enough to wear a helmet. You can get further south when you go to the Navy Memorial beach. Plus it’s a beautiful ridd to get there.

  7. Was worried for a crash but thankfully you only fell of the bike. Happens to all of us. I got a big scar on my knee from sliding after being hit by a car. Sunset beer is the best outcome you could hope for. Good job mate

  8. Nice biff or “get-off.” From the West side, a buddy and I explored as much as we could, trying to access the East Side. We were told “not possible” as there were huge cliffs. Good luck in your efforts!

  9. Here’s funny stuff man. I actually called up the number and ask how much. It’s up for sale 4 million bath. Not bad for a water front haha.

  10. Happy birthday Chad … enjoy your videos .. although you should try slow down a bit .
    sometimes you come across as to American to arrogant.
    you should try chill out more like thais less loud mate .
    cheers .

  11. Hey CB, don’t sweat it man. Anyone who rides, especially as much as you do, inevitably lays it down brother. At least you weren’t doing 65 on the highway when you did it. Happy Birthday brother!!

  12. Scooters are not Racing bikes.๐Ÿคฃ Foot pegs are to low. I warned you around 9 months ago. Living in Thailand for 35 years. I always tell everybody scooters are not racing bikes.

  13. Happy belated birthday Chad. Koh Chang is my favorite place too. The only place I have driven since coming to Thailand. Looks very much like my home country, Seychelles.

  14. Happy B-Daaaaaay Chad !!! Good it was only a fell down! would not like to see u get hurt badly keep up the good work ! ๐Ÿ™‚ take care that legg

  15. Happy birthday chad…sorry to see you go down on that moped..like you said part 2 is coming up with the right bike…๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿป๐Ÿป๐Ÿป๐Ÿค˜โค๐Ÿ™‚

  16. AND….on a serious note if your in Paterson N.J. or South Bronx New York city or anywhere in Chicago and you see a “Side Road God forbid” you take it. Do Not go in it just might be the last time you will be seen alive not kidding. This is our America today. where many foreign cities/counties are much safer than our own.

  17. Never been so concerned for someone I’m watching on Youtube. Glad you’re relatively unscathed. Visiting that island on my next trip back to Thailand.

  18. Happy birthday Chad, other than the little accident, it looked like a great day. Iโ€™m sure thatโ€™ll make the day even more memorable. Glad you were not seriously injured. Aloha.

  19. hmm,why ? i have drive motorbike eweryday after i has 14 year old. about 48 year now and newer not has crashed anythink. how you drive ???? 7 year daily has drive thailand and newer not has crashed. must be idiot if crashed maybe

  20. Happy birthday Chad my husband says if you call you can use our Suzuki sj413 while in Koh Chang .you played 3 games of pool on Songron

  21. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAN! Too bad, you crashed your bike on your birthday. The good thing is nothing bad happened to you. Anyway, Happy birthday again, and take care and always ride safe.

  22. Happy belated birthday Chad. Well deserved and hope the spill on the bike didnโ€™t dent your spirit nor hurt you badly. From one bike enthusiast to another, stay well.

  23. Happy Birthday!!! If you had a 110cc that crash would have been a laugh. Be careful and only go for 110cc. I also think that you don’t have a license so stay away from 150cc.

  24. My wife crashed on Koh Chang for the first time and she drives bikes 15 years, then next day we both crashed when it rains its like you are ice skating. But we love the Island always coming back

  25. @ Chad of CB Media,

    What a Chad, towards the End of the Villa Up-Sale, You Got them Going? Then Wuh-Bam……Just Joking๐Ÿ˜‰ Good Job No Lie. I said that after seeing too many Video Graphics Card on eBay. I know the Subject is Off-The-Wall in Relativity. Check it out, you’ll understand.

    By the Happy Belated Birthday. Mines was on the 9th of April.


  26. Bro, you went too far this time. It’s your birthday. And you spilled blood for us on your birthday! Next time take it easy on your birthday Chad. Happy Birthday ๐Ÿ™‚ Best wishes!

  27. Koh Chang on the bus from Bangkok about 6-7 hours..I love to go there for four or five days unwinds me pretty good..Iโ€™ve seen a guy come of his scooter on them tight bends looking back at a chick lol.. had to help the poor fella she didnโ€™t stop ๐Ÿ˜ Totally damaged the bike being a hire bike would of been an expensive day for him.

  28. I do subscribe on my cellphone, but I sometimes watch on my smart TV which I am not logged on to my account because a family of 4 of us has different accounts.

  29. Happy Birthday Chad. Birthdays are a great. Nice island tour. Locked up in Canada, waiting for the normal to come back. As they say in the motorcycle world, “Keep the rubber side down, shiny side up”. I had a Vespa store for years, and you should invest in some riding gear. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You know you love riding, so take it to the next step. ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿปโค๏ธ โ˜ฎ๏ธ

  30. If you haven’t crashed your motorbikes multiple times, have you ACTUALLY lived on southeast Asia?๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคฃ I’ve had 4 or 5 in the past 18 months alone ๐Ÿ˜…

  31. Chad can you hire a bike like an XR450 enduro or a big suzuki 4 stroke enduro..”with road tyres”, you could ride right up into vietnam

  32. I just got back today from there… Sadly due to covid all country is shutting down again now.

    Chad if the situation is still good stay there.

    Also koh kood next to chang island ppl have been tested positive.

    Stay save

  33. Every time I came to Koh Chang I have seen somebody who crash his Bike. One time under a Truck โšฐ๏ธbut it’s still my favorite Island

  34. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHAD…..from friends here in Kaukapakapa New Zealand……
    We always look forward to watching you having a beer in the Man Cave……

  35. เธชเธธเธ‚เธชเธฑเธ™เธ•เนŒเธงเธฑเธ™เน€เธเธดเธ”เนเธŠเน‰เธ” ! 555

    I hope you are ok.

  36. Damn dude, glad you’re ok! I was just thinking “you’re gonna fall” when you were riding up that sketchy bit..and you did! Damn dude!

  37. Happy birthday mate really enjoy your content I’m half English and half thai I’ve been watching your bangkok videos and it’s convinced me even more so to get my thai passport and come to live in Thailand

  38. Happy birthday Chad, oh I wish you could have described the early morning sunrise. it looked like from that house for sale. Looks like it would have a beautiful morning sunrise. Good kindergarten school nearby, Koh Chang police station near by wow wow wow it looks like a nice place !!!!Iโ€™m glad you got a picture of the realtors phone number.

  39. Happy Birthday. Koh Chang rocks ! The train wasn’t there when I was there in 2016, but there is also a plane stuck in some field further south…

  40. Eh, just a small fall. I thought it would be a crash. I agree I think it is better to have an enduro for Thailand. You always end up on really bad roads.

  41. My bike got crashed on my birthday too. I stopped to watch the Sunday follies at the local boat ramp, parked my bike and some guy come along and runs over it. Fortunately I was 20 feet away and having a conversation with a cop. It was a $3000 bump for his insurance company.

  42. Itโ€™s about time you woke up to the reality of coming off one. Itโ€™s only been a matter of time before you break a few.

  43. How much you end up paying for the bike repaired?2 things i knw about thailand is never rent the jet ski and another 1 never damage the rental bike..too many bad stories i heard regarding these 2 and getting their money ripped off real bad

  44. เธ•เธดเธ”เธ•เธฒเธกเธ•เธฅเธญเธ” เธญเธขเธฒเธเนƒเธซเน‰เธกเธต sub thai ๐Ÿ˜

  45. Happy birthday c,sorry about tap catch up with you later ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿป

  46. I hang out on Koh Chang , my best friend lives there with his Thai girl , I crashed my scooter on that switchback painted red … LOL Koh Chang has elephants u can feed , its where the mushrooms grow …

  47. Man, i got way further into the jungle on that path with only a 125cc ๐Ÿ˜‰ But yeah it gets really really bad. Curious as to where you turned around. I went further than i should have tbh!
    Great video dude!

  48. Iโ€™ve been trying to catch up on your video history but I had to watch this one lol from the beginning of your channel youโ€™re always talking about how you have to be careful not to crash your motorbike and here you are crashing your motorbike! You seem like a dude I could hang with lol

  49. I have post notifications turned on and I havenโ€™t been getting notifications for lives or posted videos. Anyone else have this problem?

  50. Well I think you managed to crash pretty well judging by where your bike was just a few feet away was a pretty gnarly Canyon so it could have been a lot worse,that’s my motto rub some dirt on it and get back in the game…su set beer Mission accomplished

  51. I had a bike mishap on Koh Chang right on that hairpin corner. I was going so slow, maybe 15 km and turned to look at my convoy, when I looked back I went off the road, and dropped the bike just like you did. I was wearing flip flops (never again) and the bike dragged my toes over the concrete, cutting three of them open. Not fun. I was disabled for a week.

  52. Happy belated birthday bro, wishing you many more wonderful birthday to come. By the way, I can’t wait for the second part of the trip to the end of the road. Hope your injury were not serious, take care.

  53. I like Siam beach, (go through Siam beach resort), water’s deep quickly, and there’s a jump to be made from the 3 meters “cliff” on the right (you can climb it from the water)

    On the non touristy side, I like Nam Tok Khiri Pet, only met other people once there…maybe a 1 km walk in the forest, no signs but follow the sound of the waterfall. Smallish, but secluded and a “pool” to do some swimming.

  54. Been there done that. Totaled an Honda ST1100 at Dealโ€™s Gap ( Tail of the Dragon).
    I think Iโ€™m becoming a Super Fan.
    Keep on pumping out the videos!!!!!

  55. I crashed like that in Pai, drunk driving to town from the reggae music festival. Ran out of sangsom, was going to get more๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

  56. I crashed like that in Pai, drunk driving to town from the reggae music festival. Ran out of sangsom, was going to get more๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธI

  57. Happy birthday from Bangkok, Chad ๐ŸŽ‚
    Did you check out the beached and abandoned 7 deck river boat Galaxy hotel near Bang Bao beach? ๐Ÿคช Enjoy Koh Chang, your sunset beer, and stay strong and healthy! ๐Ÿป๐Ÿโ˜€๏ธ

  58. too bad you weren’t able to press on, you would have been rewarded with a cool, secluded hippy kinda commune/resort nestled on a hillside with a big open platform dining area that commands a wonderful view of a bay! Next time ๐Ÿ™‚

  59. Koh Chang is my favorite place in Thailand. Klong Prao Beach is usually where I stay, but White Sand and Lonely is fun to go drinking. Koh Chang is adorable! Funny sidenote’; our bus almost fell down those S-curves from the pier heading on up. It was close and my heart was racing but we made it. But daaamn that bus driver bowed heavily when we arrived. Check out Koh Kood aswell, its south of Koh Mak under Koh Chang. Shantaa Resort is amazing.

  61. Nice one, not sure if thats the road to Long Beach the road is rough but worth it, enjoy Koh Chang, you can also try Koh Kut and Kho Mak, the roads are part of the fun at Koh Chang, thanks to bring back some good memories dude

  62. I thank you for curing my homesickness. Iโ€™m Thai American and havenโ€™t been back to Thailand for months and I miss home. Watching your videos traveling around Thailand is extremely therapeutic for me. I love you Chad! Keep up the videos! Happy birthday!

  63. Belated birthday wishes Chad, damn proper dripping blood injury! At least it was limited to that. Good video, keen to visit in the future. ๐Ÿ‘

  64. CB Media ,in BKK you can also buy long sleeves only for you arm . With tattoo prints . Ok , not really your streetstyle in Bangkok , but i think on Koh Chang is goes OK ๐Ÿ˜‰

  65. Happy Birthday ๐Ÿ˜Ž love your video contents I am
    Excited to go to Thailand to live this year ! You give me a lot of info I need. God Bless you!

  66. First thai stick I ever smoked, (1972) made me swear off pot for a month.
    It’s actually the only Thai stick I’ve smoked and I wonder how many have even seen it. I’ve had people say they have some and they pull out a bag. There’s a reason it’s called Thai Stick.

  67. Happy B-day Chad. Iโ€™m in pattaya now with 3 more days of lockdown. Whole night on me if youโ€™re in pattaya or bkk when I get out of the monkey house 555

  68. Love your content, Chad. You have a great sense of humor.

    Subscribed, liked, and shared via Twitter (@ThaiVlogger) promoting channels like yours.

  69. Happy birthday man you have one of a kind youtube channels and I think there should be more people like you but your one of a kind that GOD created so your the only greatest youtuber in my book

  70. Well… that couldโ€™ve been a lot worse. Glad your ok. survive and Conquer that road another day! Man that hairpin turn looks so fun. Loving the longer videos.

  71. Happy Birthday Mate!! The scars of life are part of the journey. Love your work and stay safe. Lost a friend to a motorbike accident in Thailand so be safe.

  72. Happy Birthday Broheim! Any well used/well loved mode of transport will eventually collect battle scars. As long as its in good working order (and not too expensive at the start) they become a conversation piece. “Dude what happened there?” is definitely a conversation starter. Thank you for continuing to post kick ass content and we look forward to seeing you return with the proper equipment.

  73. Happy (belated) birthday Chad. Hope the ankle gets better. Loving the videos. Iโ€™m coming to Thailand to teach English soon, hope to have a sunset beer with you in BKK

  74. Chad, as stated, another epic vlog. It is so refreshing to see Thailand thru your eyes and know that one day I can be there. The USA is such a rat race that moving to Thailand or SE Asia sounds like paradise!

  75. happy belated birthday Chad. in future I think you must use bikes were your legs are around the bike and tank. better control and easier to manovere. I used a 125 Honda MTX there on the islands. not a bad little off road bike, and still comfortable on the roads.

  76. lol… hilarious. Today is my birthday April 19th, and I am here watching you on your birthday. I think you win this exchange.

    “and inbox me if you could actually get good thai stick there, I need a hook up”

  77. Loved the salve for that bike dump. A beer. Perfect.
    I rode for years and was down 3 times.
    There are 2 types of riders. Those that have been down, and those that are going down. Glad you are OK.

  78. You do so much more than the average person and are very inspirational! Thatโ€™s right , get up , dust off and keep on keeping on man๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  79. I almost ended up in a ditch there on a Harley after hitting some diesel on a sharp corner. The next day my friend almost wrecked due to a big monkey jumping out in front of him.

  80. Happy birthday Chad! They don’t make them like you anymore man. THANK YOU!!! And please be a little bit more safe out there… Much love!!!

  81. Happy BD there Bad Chad…”crashed my motorbike”…you mean you “fell off of my motorbike” would of been more appropriate. And no your not a Pu**y.

  82. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUDDY!! Gah man Iโ€™m glad youโ€™re ok bro. Stay safe !! You donโ€™t want to end up In the wrong hospital ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

  83. I like the way u explained that lol if u didnโ€™t get it u got it and werenโ€™t offended, but if you did it was pretty damn funny lol Thanks for the videos, cheers!!

  84. Your so goofy. I miss being goofy. That is so cool to me and now I am a bitter American. I can only hope that after all the crap I have been exposed to that Thailand might rub off on me. I am extremely jealous of the love and excitement you have for the little things. Donโ€™t let anyone fuck your shit up. Seriously the ladder is not pretty.

  85. Where in the video show that you crash your motor bike? In your thumbnail, it show your crash bike, but not in the video. Are you click baiting us again?

  86. Happy birthday buddy!! I hope you have learnt a little lesson and start to take your time more in the future when you ride motorbikes. Now you have the Thailand tattoo welcome to my world buddy ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ‘

  87. เธจเธดเธฃเธดเธจเธฑเธเธ”เธดเนŒ เน‚เธŠเธ•เธดเธงเธดเธˆเธดเธ•เธฃเธเธธเธฅ says:

    Be aware please, have a good trip and safe drive.

  88. Well I subscribed as a belated birthday wish. Reminds me of a similar personal incident on Koh Samui. Seems like you Loucous and Bryan were all on Koh Chang at the similar time. Like the sped walk in the Mangroves and the photo bomb.

  89. Itโ€™s not a motorbike itโ€™s a scooter. Theyโ€™re 2 totally different things. Look at the technical definition of scooter vs motorcycle

  90. Happy Belated B-day Chad! Thatโ€™s not a motorcycle thatโ€™s a scooter โ€œ your a scooter! โ€œ. ROFL ๐Ÿคฃ. All our best from Canada!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘

  91. In the whole video you can see how he always drives fast on beautiful wide roads, if it gets a little more difficult he falls immediately, maybe he is just an amateur ๐Ÿ˜‰ I know the way to Wai Chaek very well and I often go there with 150cc scooters You can see that the scooter drives the driver and not the driver the scooter, in this case enduro or cross does not help you but sensitivity. If you want really great insider information for your second part from someone who knows the island and the residents really well, then get in touch.

  92. 1. Aerox is the worst of 150cc’s, turns like a cow
    2. Leaves are double slippery on the slopes, dude
    3. You need to balance better to drive by shit mountain roads
    4. Don’t try crash on oil, it’s far more slippery. During the rain it becomes invisible and spreading with the flow. You’ll never miss it in Thailand, it appears on slopes where old pickup can pee.

  93. Am I the only one that was watching the video to see if he showed the crash? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.. 99% of vloggers edited too much out.. I subscribe to you again… When keeping is real goes wrong ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚! Be safe

  94. I can I assure you, white sand beach is not the best beach on ,Chang, Chia Chet beach is by far the most beautiful,, and ,Klong kloi beach , just past ,Bang Bao. is amazing. just saying. after living on , Chang for over 10 years, I do no what I’m talking about,, stay safe, love from, Sa Kaeo, the Kingdom of Thailand.

  95. In the provinces of Thailand, Google maps are unreliable as new roads are being built, roads are closed or deactivated at any time. There has been news that the driver fell a river or got lost in the deep forest because of driving with GPS

  96. You must be in a drunken state. By the way you are my favorite vloger hands down. I bow to you sir. Awsome. Videos awsome life u have. Now I say drunken state only because it was 5 days no videos. And I wish new some dirt that u can not post here. I want to know about girls and what u do as a single young man. Either u are lonely or u got to much of the pie thing. Maybe thatโ€™s why u disappear for days on end. What ever it is. I wish I could hang around u a few days

  97. So nice those roads, i actually first drove a motorbike in Koh Chang. Challenging, but greeeat fun ๐Ÿ˜‰
    And we made it there with normal scooters – it’s worth the effort….
