I would agree there is an issue with peripheral vision, i allow for that with a correctly set mirror and frequent use of it.

 

I ride legally, the licence was not just given to me.

 

I used to play pool and my ability was the same after as before.

 

I have ridden  as already stated 100,000 km with no issues due to eyesight.

 

My comments are on a fact as live with the issue, i am not in denial of anything.

 

To summarize, i ride legally and safely. And i have no doubt i do so better than you.

 

 

There is a difference between complying with traffic laws - which are set to the lowest common denominator - and riding a bicycle in what is probably one of the most dangerous cities in the world traffic-wise. When you play pool, you're not playing with your life.

You ride legally. You do NOT ride safely, because you reject a piece of personal protective equipment that could save your life in an accident. All in the name of personal freedumb.

You've stated you are self-insured. Is there enough money in the kitty to support you if you became a quadriplegic?

At least the OP has the excuse he is too poor to afford more expensive means of transport. You don't.

I'm just hoping your selfish and self-absorbed risk-taking does not rebound on you. As the Greeks used to say, hubris is invariably followed by nemesis.

So when you were told (and believed) that the max. age was sixty were you told that this was all branches or just some.

 

Try the Nakhon Sawan branch.

I was not told by anybody, I have read in Thaivisa a few times over the years, did I say the maximum age was sixty? I could not have as the poster who I was answering is sixty three, I would assume that in most cases it would be seventy.

I could try the Nakhon Sawan branch out of curiosity as I live near there. Now which bank, and which branch?

My post ID 237 quotes you as saying that you were told the maximum age was 60.

 

As the original bank discussed was the Bangkok Bank it is they to whom I refer.

 

The branch is on Sawanvittee Road on the LHS about a minute after Fairyland, opp V Square and the Vitteethep Hotel. Friendly bunch, but a Thai speaker accompanying you also helps. If your knowledge of NS is limited let me know.

I don't make the laws, and i am not breaking any laws.

 

The city which i ride in in none of your business and <deleted> knows why you think it is!

 

As you have never met me, you are in no position to remark on my riding ability, stop being a <deleted>.

 

It is my life, and what i do affects nobody but me, keep you stupid  moronic views to yourself and stick to facts.

 

My finances are nobodies business, especially yours you <deleted>.

 

I require no excuses, and certainly no explanation to an ignorant person such as you.

I know exactly where it is, my knowledge of Nakhon Sawan is quite good, I was a teacher at Satri Nakhon Sawan school about 2 Ks from the bank up near Big C.

Charming. You must make friends wherever you go.

 

Before you accuse someone of being ignorant, I'd suggest checking your posts for grammar, spelling and punctuation.

In case it is of interest there is a shop up Dawadeong by the Thai Hotel selling a range of pies, teabags and the like. Still in the process of opening so not yet fully sorted.

His punctuation seems reasonably on the mark to me, but I am ready to stand corrected.

 

If this forum is any guide, after more than a century (I think) of compulsory free education, standards of literacy are abysmal. People seem proud of a lack of ability to spell properly. Not commenting on your mate here, just a general observation.

 

We are being slowly taken over by the "could of / should of / would of" brigade.
