...large signs with big crosses on motorbikes stating riding not allowed...

Would that be a legal traffic sign under Thai law?

500 Bahts fine, Wai live on TV and, of course, THB 10000 in a brown envelope.

 

But frankly, I used to do a lot of hiking in my previous life, and was getting mad at the downhill MTB idiots using the hikers space, as well as the life threatening 80Kg "Patou" sheepdogs. Actually it was very much like Thailand.

Probably the MTB riders had similar thoughts about the hikers. Is there a written law somewhere that that space belongs to a certain group of the community?

Yep, downhill MTB is restricted to specifiy areas.  Easy to understand as these guys come down at 80-100kmh is a space where two hikers passing each other have to watch their steps. Same for the sheep dogs, shepherds are meant to keep their herds away from the walking trails.

At least for national parks (the mentioned area is in a national park) Thailand does indeed have a law which says something like vehicles are only allowed on paved ways.

Looking at the provided photograph, I find it impossible to distinguish whether the riders are Thai or non-Thai.  Why suddenly are non-Thais being targeted when Thais have, no doubt, been doing the same thing for a long period of time without Thais voicing any complaints?  Just found and watched the video.  The third rider appears to be a complete beginner and void of experience.
