So you need a high a speed bike / Cubic, to over take other vehicles safely.

:cheesy::giggle::cheesy:..

 

Actually yes, I was passing a large truck on my PCX150 yesterday and the lack of top end grunt made for a little increase in heart rate as oncoming traffic appeared a bit sooner than I would have liked....No I wasn't overtaking on a blind bend!!

Maybe you should have known the limitations of you bike

and your ability to ride safely.  :coffee1:

100% agree

 

It is time Thailand modernised its attitude to roads - default should be all roads open to all vehicles with restrictions on motorways for scooters or motorbikes below 600cc

 

a far simpler way of doing things

I agree in principal. But 600 cc ??? I ride a Yamaha Aerox 155 cc & no slouch. There's plenty of 250's out there that will outrun most cars. But as someone posted, what's in it for the establishment to introduce change ?

Certainly NOT the overweight ones! They're the ones always involved in Police "crackdowns", bought about by sitting around on their butts! 😀

Yes i do. been riding bikes for 49 years.

started at 9 years old, racing them at 13. so i have very little experience !!!!!!!!!!! :cheesy:

I can over take cars and bikes on my supper powerful  125 Honda wave with the shopping basket on the front, with ease,   I also go past the big bike boys in the traffic jams, :giggle:

Maybe you need to improve your riding ability or get a smaller bike. 

 

Ps do you make vroom vroom noises at the traffic lights, before waking the throttle open to sprint to the next set of lights or traffic jam 300 yards up the road ? :giggle: :sorry:

Big bikes in Thailand are just for posing on. 

 

 

  no power requires a flying start for timely overtaking,

power does not, you are childish and either trolling or clueless. your honda dream does not hold a candle in speeds above 100 km/hour with regards to acceleration,

except in your dreams.

i did have a 2 stroke which i modded carburetor on

ages ago so i know you can squeeze them,

but eventually they run out of juice at speed,

and are in any case a hazard both susceptible to

side winds and a sudden flat tire, in which case its game over

Maybe police would be more active if there was a mandatory minimum number of leys say 15 fines a week for each cop to write out..

Hence why standing on Beach Rd pulling over tourists is more favoured.

1. there is in this case no emergency lane, if a motorbike breaks down in the tunnel, it creates unsuspected problems. If a car is breaking down you will see it, because its much bigger
2. Motorbikes create much more polution with their primitive engines (lots of them are 2-stroke)  than the fine-tuned and highly optimized car-engine 

1) much easier to move a motorbike then a car. So that is actually an issue against using cars. Thanks for making my case for me. 

 

2) I guess you either havent been in Thailand for a long time or are in general as stupid about engines as me. However since a long time now there are no two strokes anymore. They are a minority. Motorbikes are far less polluting then cars. So Again you have no clue what your talking about. (talking about the normal 4 strokes that in general burn 1/4th of what a car burns in fuel)

Ok mate, 

Big bikes in Thailand are for posers, 

You can't trust what somchai is going do,  in front, behind, to the side of you. so high speed is out the question, on the roads here on bikes.

unless your stupid or a true poser.

 

I will stick with the Honda 125 wave around pattaya.

it looks more fitting than,  the people who look like,  rejects from a village people movie. :giggle:

maybe, but i have been out and about with them

and i had to man up to keep up,

i had no idea they were driving that fast, accelerate that hard,

and take over in such an aggressive fashion,

i was falling behind until i accepted that death is just

path of life, one that we must all take, live and let die and vise versa, entirely put out of my comfort zone altogether

your Yamaha Aerox 155 might seem quick to you but I assure you it isn't 

 

Plus, put a 90kilo passenger on the back of anything you mention and see how that works out
