Chiang Mai teenager survives big bike collision but loses leg – VIDEO

Just to add some context to this quite unbelievably moronically stupid series of decisions :-

 

The top speed of a ZX-10R is 290 km/h

The engine produces 210 hp

It weighs 206 kg

It does 0 - 100 kmh in 2.8 seconds.

 

The parents must be complete morons and above the law. They are certainly teaching him irresponsibility and impunity very well.

Some people might be plain stupid and even be proud that their son is riding such a bike.

 

   It's a phenomenon that happens all over the Kingdom right now.

 

  You can see plenty of big bikes on the roads ridden by teenagers, but the sad truth is not for long, and they're gone.

 

Some are lucky, and some are not. 

 

  I always hear from my son who just had an accident with which bike and that's like a disease that has to stop. 

 

Just have a look at schools where even the teachers come in helmet less ( and often brainless, as well). Non-functioning education does the rest. 
 

 

The loss of face can easily turn into the loss of head and other body parts.

A Vulcan viewpoint:

As long as an individual won't have descendants he is effectively "dead" in Darwinian terms and the surviving gene pool will have been strengthened.

 

As a human, I hope other families will learn from this tragic situation and don't suffer the pain this rider's family will experience from this day forward.

His rich parents sent their 13 year old son away on a 1000cc bike, you would think they had some sort of education , when they could afford to buy the bike in the first place. 
But the Thai brains works in mysterious ways.

I remember when i first rode my uncle's bike when i was 18, living with my uncle. My mom travelled all night on a night bus same day after hearing about it just to pick a fight with my uncle (her brother) for allowing me to ride his bike. What are these new generation moms thinking? 13year old on a big bike?😰 God where are you?

Interesting. How does eliminating oneself from the gene pool work if you have already passed on your genes to your children?

My interpretation is that you can do no further damage!

The boy should not drive at this age such a powerful bike - he drives also much to fast in that traffic conditions - surely the other motorbike changing lanes from far left - emergency lane to the right lane without care made the accident - but still the boy was to fast. Sorry that outcome

Yes I will not try to say no. But I just reviewed the video a few times again and there was more than open time to see by both parties if they had their eyes open.

One was to young much to fast much to unexperienced - one was just the regular Thai driver - just crossing lanes without care at all - remembers me to the accident - with Yamaha R1 when a old enough biker accelerated to 265 on a road which was in repair overtaking his 2 biker buddies - lost control and crashed to his death.

Had bikes all my life and still have. After 18 years owing it I've just sold my ZX-9 - the predecessor to the ZX10. The 9 is bloody fast but the 10 is a rocket ship. Would I allow my 13 year old son to ride a ZX10? Absolutely no way! Even another 10 years wouldn't give him the 'head on his shoulders' needed to ride such a machine and survive. Madness - just can't believe this.

Sorry dear .. That is not good enough .. You need yrs of experience riding smaller capacity machinery under all conditions before taking on one of those .. Most bikes of that ilk are capable of a 100mph in 1st gear and then onto 180+ mph at least with the acceleration to match .. that's a mile every 20 sec's , about the limit of the human eye's range to clearly see things like other vehicle's in the distance and their intentions ( indicators , brake lights etc ) by the time you have processed what you're eyes are seeing what was a mile in front is now only 1/2 mile .. already it is near impossible to stop within that 1/2 mile from that sort of speed .. and if you can it will be more by luck than judgement .. training or not a 13 yo boy with no license and no experience of bigger motorcycles was no match for this bike .. The parents should be held responsible and liable for this for buying him the bike in the 1st place .. 

A lot of us old codgers went through the slowly increasing power and speed process with bikes. Starting with things like ratty old Tiger Cubs etc. BSA Bantams that may as well have been fitted with a calendar instead of a speedo. Even 'big' bikes 500/650's were not rockets, althogh some were called that.

Thare is no real learning curve now and here there is no effective training.

Anyway, the parents were/are daft to think a 13 year old would have any clue what to do with todays 1000cc bikes.

I've said this before and will say it again.... when are the authorities going to start clamping down on underage bike riders.  No license, probably no insurance.... yet we see them every day screaming around the streets.
