    Totally irresponsible. A car licence is NOT enough. If you can't make the effort to get a motorbike licence you should NOT be riding. It's not just about obeying the law. Its about people safety, both to riders and pedestrians. Riding a motorbike is not the same as riding a bicycle…

    Hey quick question, I will be backpacking Thailand, what’s the price difference if I want to get a driver and a scooter. I don’t know how to ride a scooter and don’t trust myself 😂. Is it still affordable, budget friendly with a driver and scooter. Thanks 😀

    One of the best and most honest videos on scooters in Thailand ! Still deciding myself if i want to drive one or not in the traffic in Pattaya. Chances of death are pretty low considering the speeds, but ending up in a hospital isnt that much fun either. But i do want an Yamaha Nmax… decisions decisions, thanks for the great video.

    I really like hearing the Pros and Cons, and also the estimated costs and accessories. Thanks for providing the truth and dangers as well. I know when I travel overseas and plan to drive, I'll get an international driver license but yeah, I don't think I would ever drive in any of the Asian countries from my experience there. Way too much crazy traffic for my personal preference. Great info and thanks, Phil!!

    Yep, I agree with both the pros and the cons. Traffic is crazy in Thailand! I think it depends on what kind of person you are. I'm a nervous driver, so it probably wouldn't be safe for me to get a scooter. However, these tips are really helpful and realistic!
