Death Highway? Guess so with all the illegal passing and high speeds.

Astute observation MS.

Sometimes it is too easy to be critical of just Thai motor bike riders. :-k

I thought we was going to see a motorcyclist get splattered the way he was riding. Obviously never had any training on how to ride a motorcycle or the Highway Code because that is a diabolical way to ride a motorcycle.

OT....... \:D/

Speeds seem very moderate to me and I didn't see any illegal overtaking, just a normal drive on a thai road, looked very steady to me, nice day out.

Overtaking on the left? Over taking on the right while oncoming traffic is present making it like threading a needle? Speeding to catch up to the lead bikes? Maybe I was watching a different video.

Coming from a guy who is totally anti wearing a safety helmet this makes sense.
To the rest of the world some of the manoeuvres on the video are just stupid and accidents waiting to happen.

Owned a Harley Heritage soft tail in 1989. And I never rode in anger, riding in anger can only cause bad things to happen.

Interesting thoughts, coming from a guy who (in a different life) said this:
Air Horns
The more people that give these idiots on bikes with no concern for any other road user a good wake up call the better!

and this:
Drives me MAD !!
......... they are total ignorant pratts who should have their licences revoked, if they have one at all, there is a highway code here but I bet 99.9% have never heard of it let alone read it!

Out of curiosity what make is the bike in the video? Don't know my Scoopy from my Wave.
Looks like some kind of wanna be chopper Harley type to me, especially as the rider has stage name across his jacket.

Each to their own, there decision as to how to ride, they are in control of there own destiny.
As a rider with 50 years of experience from a broad range of 1960 British twin/singles thru to Jap twins/fours including Fireblades.
These riders are an accident waiting to happen!
Strays dogs for example
