?? Your 'logic' escapes me.

What is the number then?

Personally,

... have seen quite a few Thais splated on the road,

but don't recall seeng any juveniles among those.

...been hit by other drivers/riders thrice;

2 adult women and a drunk 20 y/o guy.

Anybody out there been smashed by a child?

They tend to be sober.

R. Smith?

Methinks thee doth protest to mutt.

According to WHO stats: 15,800 youths involved in an accident when riding, 700 killed.

 

(not passengers - youth in this case refers to illegal underage riders) - but if you haven’t seen any the WHO must be wrong. 

 

Valid point on kids / youths generally not being drunk.

 

I wonder how A ‘true stat’ balances out to number of underage riders vs number of accidents / deaths vs comparison with numbers adults on motorcycles. 

 

Now, if you think 12-15 year old kids are safer than adults on motorcycles then I’m really not expecting our logic to be aligned and can see why my logic or any for that matter may ‘escape’ you papa.

As I said earlier...all you poor Dudley Dorights need to get a life.

I sincerely hope you know what you accomplish by using that term.

First you admitt that it´s the right thing, otherwise you would not use Do-rights. After that you put it in a sentence where you dispise people that do the right things.
 

That would mean that you dispise doing the right things and following the laws. Wonder what kind of person that makes you out to be?

Not a Sheep - or a lemming - to blindly follow others off a cliff just because it is the 'Right' thing to do

Now it´s about sheep and lemmings? How can it be right to follow others or even one person off a cliff? Are you suicidal?

I never assumed it was one or the other, unlike you. Now however having realised your error you are back pedalling. I have not read anywhere on here that the guys who teach their offspring to ride at below 16 or 18 are doing it dangerously. 

I learned to ride a motorcycle (650 BSA) at about 14/15, in a field. So why should others not do the same. 

 

You also do not seem to understand that there are two parts to riding a bike safely IE. the actual control of the bike under various conditions and then there is the riding on the road with traffic and other road users. Both are equally important. A farang who can drive a car in god knows where and thinks he can in Thailand is a danger to himself and others when he ventures onto the road on his brand new Wave, because he doesn't know the first thing about actually riding a bike. 

 

I believe the OP simply wanted to know the age requirements for riding motorcycles in Thailand

Wow!

Shaft drive!

Never knew that.

Brilliant idea.

I'd buy that if my lad was 8-9 years younger.

PM sent.

Now my question that is very important to me.... She is having her 17th birthday now 31st october.. Is she allowed to drive a 125cc?? Or must she stick to our 110 cc Honda Click??

Regardless of her legal entitlements, if her safety was of my concern, I would just restrict her to the smaller crotch rocket for now. Maybe when she's had a couple of years more experience, she can have a few cc's more.

 

Kudos BTW on her actually getting a license. I have 5 regular bike riders here, including Mrs NL who have been riding bikes in LOS for a collective +75 years and none of them has ever bothered to get tested and get a license. One of the few times I get all shouty with them is when they whine about being nabbed at a traffic stop or having to drive the great-circle route home to avoid one.

 

Sloths.
