For the life of me I can't understand why anyone would risk driving or riding a motorcycle in Bangkok. Another life taken prematurely, RIP.

I do it every day.  It is very dangerous and I wouldn't recommend it unless you are aware of the danger and are able to drive accordingly.  The very high accident rate on  Thai roads is due mainly to motorcycle accidents.  Thai drivers make it look easy.  It's not.  Many Thais have been driving motorcycles in Bangkok since they were 8 years old.  Some of them are still 8 years old.  

For me, despite the risks, it is still a great way to get around Bangkok.
