No definition of "big bikes"; such sloppy reporting.

And I agree; the noise that larger motorcycles put out can be very annoying.

That’s good news as far as I am concerned as well.

Khao Yai will especially benefit greatly from that in terms of reducing noise pollution.

Difficult problem.
In a way good news. I guess it is the only viable solution. So frustrating when having hiked for a couple hours and think you are away from everything and then hear a few noisy motorbikes at several kms distance.

I feel sorry for those who do just slowly cruise around on their larger motorbikes without noisy exhausts, just enjoying nature and respecting the wildlife.
After all, there are also cars with very noisy exhausts, road raging through the parks and causing equal disturbance to the wildlife and other visitors.
As well as small motorbikes that produce quite a lot of noise too.

But to equip every national park entrance with decibel meters and roller banks to test each vehicle prior entry is not a real option either I am afraid.

I guess in this case the percentage of 'trouble makers' amongst this group of vehicles has been too large.

As in Thailand generally, the laws and the enforcement are two different matters.

I was in Khao Yai last weekend, still saw big bikes pretty much everywhere and of every type thus I wonder if its not in effect or they are only blocking Harley Davidson
