    Thought I would post a few with Indonesian's doing their best with what they have, so we have balanced content. Lest some think their Thailand experiences are unique.

    I asked a copper here in Thailand why children and babies could be taken on motorcycles, he told me you cant buy helmets that small, just the adults need hats,

    I ride without a helmet from the Farm to the near-by Ma n Pa Shop ... it's a great freedom.

    Different story though (before we bought a car) when on the main road going to the local Lotus.
    Everyone with lids on then.

    Horses for courses.


    Just being honest ... I'm not a PC sort of guy.

    The thing is if they wear a helmet it's just a cheep plastic thing that will do nothing in an accident but will stop a fine
    I ride locally myself without a helmet sometimes

    I always wear a helmet.
    It's as I told my son when I taught him to drive: You may be the best driver in the world, but it's the idiots out there that will cause an accident, so always drive cautiously. Assume there is an idiot on the road.

    We have a running joke about helmets... They're mandatory, in case we have an accident. It keeps our brains from splattering and scattering on the pavement. 555 Not funny in English, as it is in our native tongue.

    Hence why helmets are often called 'Brain Buckets'.

    I presume the ground on the way to the ma and pa shop is softer than the ground elsewhere then?
