Seriously ?

A 250 cc motorbike can out accelerate and out manoeuvre a big bike ?

 

Whatever you been smoking i need a few kilo's.

Acceleration, power to weight ratio.

 

Fat bikes and fat people, not so fast.

What about the many big bike riders who have been riding them for years, or even decades?. Again, an ill-thought out idea, with many questions still left unanswered. Another knee-jerk reaction to a pr

Begin with an IQ test, that would filter out quite a few. 

So lets take a look at the Yamaha MT-15, it is only a 155CC bike, yet can do 140 Km/H. Enough torque and 6 speeds to accelerate as fast as a larger bike and yet would not be considered a big bike.  Yo

I have a full English driving licence including Motorcycle allows me to ride any size motorcycle on British roads plus any vehicle up to 3 tons. Do I have to take a test?

 

Wouldn't have thought so should be like crossing your car licence over but who knows TiT were they like to make everything complicated and common sense is a rare commodity...

Small people, small horsepower, small idea of reality + overinflated ego’s = clueless people.

 

on a side note. If we met on our bikes and you tried to play, you would not even see where I went. by the time we were 30 kilometres down the road I would have refuelled, eaten lunch, used the restroom and had a smoke before you even turned up.

Back in the day guys, 

The 250 bikes were mostly  2 stroke, very light very nippy

now days the  4 stroke has over taken the 2 strokes. :jap:

Rather amusing all the peeps that have been riding "big bikes" for years all upset about having to possibly do a test to gain the new licence..... you  should breeze it in with all the experience you have.

 

I think Thailand should adopt the Aus @ NZ LAMS Scheme.

Absolutely you are and enjoy your 125cc scooter.

No enjoyment, just the most convenient  way to get around town,

traffic is outrageous in pattaya.

You can also enjoy the big old mans chair, with all the leather clobber on.

roasting at traffic lights. :jap:

Agree 100% on a scoot for around town duties, its my preferred means of transport however I do prefer my "big bike" for runs up to Chaing Mai and the likes though.

100% Agree, i have got 2 scooters and a Saleng (three wheeler) down from 9 rental scooters, i love the aerox for zipping around town but if i wanna go.... i do mean go say from Hua Hin to Ubon Ratchathani or down to Phuket or just scoot up to Buri Ram for GP (damn covid), i aint guuna do it on the Aerox its the dreaded "Big Bike" for me.

I have done Ubon to Prachuap in a day, with pillion and baggage, sprinted from PKK to buri Ram easily in a day, quicker than a car and probably safer.

Although i was overtaken buy a geriatric on a 250...................NOT.

Comparing apples with oranges?

Do at least take a bike from this millenium based on the same technology
