I ride in Singapore and Indonesia. We have thousands of riders on the road - Singapore had 300 odd motorbike fatalities last year (inc pillions). I'd consider that low in a country of 6 million. One thing that I notice compared to Australia is that as a car driver - in a country with a lot of bikes - you are much more conscious of bikes being all around. In Australia being t-boned in an intersection or swiped by someone on a freeway is quite common - mainly cause drivers have not registered a bike on the road.
