I am living about 45 km south west of Khon Kaen, 44 years old norweigan and drive a Yamaha Roadstar 1600 cruiser.

Been into KK many times, but never meet any falangs on a bike? Do you have some meeting places in KK?

Would be nice to meet some of you one dayWink

If you aren't aware of it, you might want to check out http://www.gt-rider.com/

It's primarily focused on the North, but I think there are some guys in the Northeast that contribute to the forums. Lots of good information there.

Along these lines:

Thailand Declares 2011 The Year of the Helmet:


" The cabinet on Tuesday approved a proposal to declare 2011 the year of campaigning for 100 per cent of motorcyclists to wear crash helmets, government deputy spokesman Supachai Jaisamut said.
Under the campaign, all state agencies, state enterprises and local administrations are to make it compulsory for their staff to wear safety helmets while travelling on motorcycles. Violators are to face not only legal action, but also disciplinary action.
The Labour Ministry is to instruct all employers to promote use of helmets.
The Education Ministry is to campaign for students in both state-run and private schools to do the same.
The Interior Ministry is to give an instruction for all local administrations to make sure their staff and students of schools run by them cooperate.
The Industry Ministry's Industrial Standards Institute is to redesign helmets to suit the local climate while the Public Health Ministry is to compile statistics of casualties from road accidents in which victims do not wear a helmet. "

How successful do you think this will be? Maybe a 1000-5000 baht fine might be some incentive. Seeing others getting their heads cracked open and attending a few funerals doesn't seem to be effective.

Given the lack of actual protection the average helmet that Thais wear provides, I don't think the law would make much difference even if it was actually adhered to.
