    Buying a motorcycle for a teen in a country with one of -- if not the -- highest rates of motorcycle road deaths in the world. Smart.

    Save the money and spend it on his education instead, ensure that he doesn't end up like you.

    Have seen some younger if side car is attached. They cut their teeth standing in the MC leg well. They get raised to have no fear of MC dangers.

    Seems correct Horatio. Thais become legally adults at 20 so are able to sign legal documents.

    Be sure to get the ex to register it in her name, that way when your son does some property damage, she pays.

    Assuming your asking me a question, because most questions end in question marks, I could fookin' care less. I was suggesting a possible course of action for you in order to mitigate your exposure to costly insurance claims.

    Since a teenager has less sense than the common cockroach, I would be willing to bet there's going to accident. If you own the bike, you own the responsibility.

    Personally, it will give me a giggle if you have to pay for his fuck ups because you were too stupid to make sure you WEREN'T responsible.

    Best of luck.

    CS, You must know a lot of youngsters who haven't had guidance from there parents,though my son is a very responsible young lad,and he rides his bike very carefully,and is more than aware of idiot adults who cause the majority of accidents in Thailand.

    Considering you work with children/youngsters you do seem to have a very negative attitude to the very people you teach.

    I thought the legal age was about 7 years old, 5 years old if they wear a crash helmet.

    There are those old 'Dios' that are 50cc (And actually very good fun. Weigh less than a bag of sugar and have 4 inch wheels. ) but they can't be legally registered.


    Don't they have to be a minimum of 100cc to be able to be legally registered?

    LOL, it's good you trust your 16 year old son considering all the time you've spent with him. Kudos to you, sir.
