Thats interesting , interesting others  feel its stupid and dangerous in the  village,  but would  they still  shout that if  he drove sedately? because even at  11 years  old  its  still  too  young.

Not all the adults put up with nonsense from their kids, the neighbour who shouts at the boy has 3 young kids who are all too young to drive but do anyway. He does at least try to ensure they drive slowly (they do when he can see them).

 

They are all good kids though and generally well behaved and cared for.

Last night at the village shop some old guy with torch on his head (his old scooter had no lights), a dog sitting in the middle and a boy of about 10 years old on the back.

 

Man very drunk...orders more Lao Kai. After chat with other old guys he leaves to go home, telling the kid to get on the front of the bike and drive him and the dog home as he too drunk.

 

Kid, old man and dog no helmets. Kid drives off on the old bike with no lights into the road, narrowly missing another bike passing by, to which people think funny, then off they go into the darkness.

 

 

Yes I see this too everyday. It's almost like the parents want them to drive to have a designated driver. On these bike/sidecar combinations the youngest of the 5 or so people on them is always the driver. Insane.

He may Have been Super fit but Not Super Smart . Not wearing a Helmet Maybe would've Void his Insurance . If he Had Renewed it

His choice to stay in Los  But Didn't Renew his Travel Insurance , After it  Expired . I am afraid it's a Self inflicted Drama.        Now in the Go fund Me Charity.

 

Travel Insurance :

 

Most travel insurance policies are designed to cover travelers from door-to-door, starting when they leave home and ending when they return home. However, there are different types of policies that provide coverage for different periods of time.

Most Single Trip Policies Last the Length of Your Trip

Single trip travel insurance policies with Trip Cancellation provide comprehensive coverage for the entire length of your trip. Typically, these policies can last up one year, however it varies by policy.

The length of your trip is one of the primary factors in determining a policy’s premium. Other factors include your total trip cost and the age of each traveler.

Trip Cancellation protects your trip expenses if you cannot take your trip for a reason covered by the policy. These policies are available up until the day before you leave for your trip, and also include Trip Interruption coverage to cover for the portions of your trip you miss if you have to return home early.

Some Single Trip Policies May Be Extended

Certain policies without Trip Cancellation are “International Medical” policies, which cover you while you are outside of your home country. These policies also last up to one year, however some can be renewed for up to 36 months if you extend your trip. In this case, your coverage will end when the renewal period expires.

I hope the guy makes a full recovery, despite riding a Moto with no protective gear!

He wasn't wearing a helmet and he was on the way to the gym so i geuss a drive he did many times . He is living in thailand so he should know the risks of not wearing a helmet and for sure speading . Accidents like this happen every day here in thailand and i don't see go fund me for those people . Looking at the pictures he is living the live having a house with a pool home gym and he's a investment banker so i geuss he has more money to spend then most of us here . Sorry to be so blunt but i think they have to try to solve their own bill before asking people for money , maybe sell the house and rent something or whatever but he caused this accident by his own stupidity . I DO HOPE HE MAKES IT AND WILL RECOVER . 

Well said! Neither too much nor too little! One can disapprove without being only negative 👍

When I see a farang on the road without a helmet on his scooter I think he lacks intelligence
When I see a farang  on the road without a helmet on a big motorcycle I think he's a fool.
For the Thais I don't think anything, they are too many.

Very sad. Good luck mate but it might have been better to be all over. No helmet?  no point stating the obvious.

I remember awhile back a TV member , I think Brit, had a heart problem and asked for help and a GoFunfMe was started. A bunch of TV keyboard warriors said oh it's a scam and he's dodgey ect even thought others said they knew  him and his wife Pie. Many said because he did not discuss every little detail of upcoming operation don't  contribute. He finnaly got the money from an undisclosed TV member but died from complications of the operation. I gave then and still send money sometimes to his wife , guess I'm just that kind of guy. 100% of us agree that it was stupid to not wear a helmut/gear when driving a big bike at speed but if you don;t want to contribute don't ,very simple. So far as scaming rumor/possible but no charges/warrants for him so how about we drop the hate and just move and hope he recovers and does the same. Wow so many hatefull bitter men on this site.
