Police and rescuers arrived on the scene to find the body of 36 year old Maksim Fadeev. Fadeev was wearing an open-face crash helmet, which unfortunately did not protect him from an injury to his forehead.



People should wear full-face helmets, which I know get hot.   I was in Phuket in March and met someone who was pretty scraped up after dumping his scooter.   A full-face helmet would have saved him from the low-speed face plant.
