Young Thai Big Bikers, Mentally Retarded?

Recommended Posts

You've been here long enough to know that these 'young men' are conditioned from birth to believe they are 'special', 'indestructible', 'superior to other races' and 'can do no wrong'....to name a few misnomers.      You also know that they wear 'Amulets' which they are told will keep them safe and other stuff like warding off evil spirits, so what could possibly go wrong ?

 

My Wife's 18 yr old half Brother believed he was very special and was wearing two amulets when one drunken night at 2am he rode his Motorbike at high speed down 108 with no lights, no helmet and no hope....he hit the back of a road repair truck parked up for the night, also without lights and lost his head...literally.  The Police said he had more than three times the legal amount of alcohol in his system.  All his 'mates' came to the funeral but apparently learned nothing, as four more of them have died on bikes in the seven years since then.   You can't fix stupid.

As Ive said in another forum, it appears there is very little in the way of driver education here.  At it appears the BiB dont give a rats arse as to enforcing the rules.  If there is no revenue to be made then why bother seems to be the prevalent mind set.

 

Of course I could be completely wrong and the BiB are covertly collecting information on all these types of activities.  A big crackdown is only days away!  I would think any planning in this regard is likely to be a big 'crackup"

 

I agree there are some idiots on them thar roads....and all we can do is try and avoid them as best we can.

 

Perhaps if the men in top positins were to engage the help of some Western police enforcement officers, then they may learn how to do their job properly?  Nah dont be stupid.... we dont like a nanny state and hell afterall this is our country.  We know how to run it.

 

OK sarcasm over...

 

  Be safe out their guys (And guyesses)

The problem is the Police generally do not know any better or flout those same laws themselves.

Young dudes are always irresponsible and reckless. I've always been too. But not to this extent. You are right. This is simply being retarded. And retarded people usually don't last long on big bikes. Let us enter a moment of silence.

Of course, young men on motorbikes the world over are a hazard in many situations. I have logged thousand of kilometers in Thailand both during mid youth and older and of course seen far too many chalk lines drawn around where a body once lay. However, when it comes to young Thais who are on their game, have incredible eye hand coordination. Going 100 kmph between cars coming and going with the bike mirrors mere inches from the oncoming car and the car they are passing. Most of us would say that is some dumb (foolish)....but, damn, also skillfully impressive.

 

Last winter I was stuck (on a scooter) in traffic alongside a Thai gang on Huey Kaeo on big bikes called the Necromancers. That is a big word also. Theses are big bikes with short legged people going slow. One tipped over against a car, than another, than another. Fortunately it did not matter which side they tipped over as there was a car on either side to keep them part way up. It was embarrassing. They ride with their faces covered, but posted a You Tube video partying with their masks off. Yep, still Thais.

I would not infringe upon their right to kill themselves. I just wish they would do it quietly and not involve other people.

I used to do a run out with a group of Thai bikers, once a month in the cool season. First Sunday after pay day.

Say 20 bikes and ten pick ups/cars with wives and kids.

A couple of pick up trucks would be for the walking wounded and bent bikes, the day out usually generated one of two.

Boys and Bikes normally led to a spot of racing, just normal, sure I used to do so as a Yooff.

Where's the dash cam footage to post the lunatics online for the police to take action (or otherwise) and more importantly to protect your innocence in the event of an accident caused by others?

Surely you are not driving in Thailand (of all places) without a dash cam...or are you???

100mph = 160.934kph

 

So you are saying you estimated that they were going 160kph? They got that speed up from the traffic light to the 7-Eleven? 

 

You wouldn't be exaggerating a tad, would you?

Depends on the bikes and the distance from the light to the 7/11- mine can approach 118mph (190kph) in an 1/8th mile, which is about 200 meters.
