Olso recommedation to repair or to sell the old bike. how and where do i go for the reregistration>?
HELP ME PLEASE,
Maarten form the netherlands
The problem is if you rented the bike and you did not asked for insurance or insurance doesn't pay for reasons like no valid driver license, you are personal responsible for damage to the motorcycle you rented.
On the other side, I have the feeling that the rental company is trying to pull your leg, as most Thai Suzuki motorcycles cost less then 40,000 Baht, with only a few that are around 43,000 Baht and only the Suzuki Raider 150Ri costing 54,600 Baht.
Maybe you can give us a bit more detail about the accident and the company that wants you to buy a new bike.
it is a suzuki step 125 cc. and yes now they say 43.000 bath but then they have 2 bikes... they say the frame is bended and you cant buy a new frame in thailand, is that correct... the old bike is olso on payment and i saw papers that the still have 2 pay 20.000 for the old bike to clear that. today it is on a kind of settelment. that i pay them 35.000 and then it is finiched.
You crashed 2 bikes? And yes they have a point, buying a new frame is extremely difficult as the bike is registered with frame number. But a bended frame can be lined again, which doesn't cost that much.
Maybe you can give some more detail about the shop, so we can call them or give me your details (Thai telephone number) send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
