Couldn't be truer! My Thai Mrs overtakes in her car or Hilux completely on the wrong side of the road. When I scream "moto head on!" she responds "It's only a moto they have room to move over".

My next reaction with her driving would be "Stop the car I will walk and don't worry about me being a passenger next time

German tourist mentality: "Why is this truck overtaking in such a dangerous manner? Can't he see he's heading straight for me?" *smash*

 

Thai driver mentality: "Why doesn't that little motorbike get out of the way? Can't he see I am heading straight for him?" *smash*

 

their is definitely something wrong with these people i had one drive into the side of me as he was waiting to pull out, never even saw me and there were many cars in front and behide me.

they dont have a clue

I feel safer on a ‘real’ bike here. Higher, louder & more visible with the power and braking to get out of sticky situations easier (in my opinion) plus seemingly a little more respect given on the Duc over my Aerox. 

 

I had a few close calls on my scooter but so far nothing on the big bike. I still hope for the best and plan for the worst though!

The big bike is much safer than a tiny scooter. It runs much faster. And in case of an accident you would not suffer..... an easy way to end your life. For sure!

Exactly, that's why Germany should ban the Thai driverslicense from their roads. This man didn't get a warning from the Thai government that drivers here LOVE to drive against traffic with all consequences from that.

 

Or Thailand should not let Westerners drive here without a Thai driverslicense where they tell you that you can use the incoming lanes as well.

 

But of course Thailand won't do anything, it's only a Western farang who died and they don't like them anyway.

Thai drivers license are banned in Australia unless you have an international one

Was the truckdriver on the incoming lane while overtaking/? If so i hope he has to pay a million euro to the german's relatives....i see this every day, Thai think that both lanes belong to them. Unfortunately the Thai driverslicense is also valid in Germany which is a huge shame. 

Aaah - this happened in Thailand, they aren't gonna get a single baht.  The German will be blamed for causing the accident because it wouldn't have happened if he hadn't rented the motorbike.......case closed.

I live in kanchanaburi and the lazy cops here do absolutely nothing about road safety,helmets,3 and 4 clowns on bikes,going the wrong way against traffic or enforcing any sort of road rules,most of the bikes in town  are unregisterd, then you only see cops 9 till 5,the bar strip here where most of the bars and falang resturants are we see every night young clowns racing but never see a cop.
