Never check the rear light and brake light are still working. Only at annual 'test' if bike 5+ years old is this corrected.

You always need to remember in Thailand; if there is a car with a driver at wheel in front of you, they are untrained and possible drunk, so you drive with that in mind. 50 - 60kph in city districts is probably enough. 80kph on all those roads with u-turns, markets, schools and shops. Give yourself a chance.

Also it needs to be remembered that if there is a bike with a rider in front of you, particularly a foreigner, they are even more likely to be untrained, possibly drunk but definitely arrogant enough to think that they are the world's best driver/rider because they are not Thai, so you drive with that in mind. 50 - 60kph in city districts is probably enough. 80kph on all those roads with u-turns, markets, schools and shops. Give yourself a chance.
