The latest hit - protection from sun and rain - now there's only the police to worry about!

"The only thing I am worried about is the police - they might claim I have adapted my bike and fine me".   

 

If the BIB can make more money by shaking down motorcyclists, then you probably can bet that the covers will be labelled as illegal.  They can double their money.  "No helmet! 400 baht.  Cover on motorcycle! 400 baht.  800 baht, pay at table!"

Me?  I'm happy with a rain slicker and a helmet with a visor.  Works fine and leaves the cops with no excuse to shake me down at road blocks.

"Visibility of the road was not impaired, he said,...."

 

Or rather, not adversely changed given that a large percentage don't actively engage their visionary senses to start with

I'll do what I normally do - Put wallet, phone, etc, under the seat, and ride home; nice and refreshing.

Maybe a bit dangerous !  :shock1:

In a strong wind  that could either fly off or produce massive side force  to topple or push you under the wheels of the speeding Minivan/concrete truck/tour-bus or "four too naa"

just what I thought when seen this !!!

They have already - it is called a "car'

Wow. Did it take you all morning to come up with that witty response sport ?

It's like adding a sail to a motorbike. I can't think of anything stupider at the moment.

This is the reason they're selling like hot cakes in Thailand.

'Thai Rath said that it has to be safer than having one hand on an umbrella and one hand on the handlebars.'

Not sure where they get 'the latest fad' from, we have had these (or very similar) in Phitsanulok for at least 5 years.

 

They may protect from the sun and rain, but when up against wind, not so good. Really really dangerous even with the wind generated by a passing bus or truck.

Ridiculous they would considered this to stop them getting wet yet a helmet is not considered to save their lives.

You got it right Steve!!!

I have seen the 'Hard' variety around for several years which do not have side walls. These type are also becoming popular but again I haven't seen any with side walls.

For mums taking their kids to school they seem fine, as they do not tend to go fast. Teens would not be interested as they are not a fashion item.

Or how, in a strong wind, to turn a scooter into a paraglider.

Nothing wrong with gliding over the traffic..😂😂😂
