    Class 2 Bike Choices

    Moving forward... The 899 seems like such a perfect choice for a Class 2 bike. 848 Evo vs 899 Panigale
  2. If you have been wondering why there have been a drop in Malaysian motorbikes on our roads, here's why... According to a report from Chinese newspaper Zaobao, more than 5,000 bikes have since been transported back to Malaysia while their owners choose to stay in Singapore as the reopening of borders between Singapore and Malaysia remains unknown. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Malaysian employees that travel back and forth daily into Singapore have been affected. This number stands at an estimated 300,000 and many of these people enter our country by motorbikes while some drive in. In order to save entry permit fees and other expenses, the authorities have assisted Malaysian workers who are stuck or choose to stay in Singapore ever since the closing of borders by returning more than 5,000 motorcycles and cars to Malaysia in the past five months. A manager of one of these transport companies that provides this service has revealed that about 3,000 motorcycles have been transported across the border by them since June. At its peak, his company handled 120 bikes a day. He was quoted saying that many of these workers consider the $4 daily entry permit fee and other expenses too much to handle, choosing instead to take public transport in Singapore. Another company added on that some of the bike owners even decided to sell the motorcycles immediately after returning them to Johor. Once the transport company obtains the approval of the relevant authorities in Malaysia, it will conduct a physical screening for their driver before sending them over into Johor. To prevent the entire shipment of vehicles from being detained, the motorcycles that are being transported over must be fulled up and are checked to ensure that their license plates match the respective vehicle. It is understood that the cost of transporting a motorcycle back to Johor Bahru is between $80 to $150.
  3. Did these ppl ride on public road?? If yes, then suck thumb. If not, they can just ride all they want in a private property without LTA/TP jurisdiction.
  4. Spotted somewhere on the many pages of Facebook is a post where a motorcyclist managed to do a proposal with the help of his mates on the road. Done somewhere in our MCE tunnel, Hasan Sanny and his wife-to-be were supposed to be married on the 29th of Aug 2020. However due to the pandemic, the wedding had to be postponed. Not wanting to let that defeat him, the motorcyclist got his friends who then rode on 3 different bikes and wore t-shirts with the words "Marry Me ?" to carry out the proposal. Did he managed to get his girl of his dream? Watch the video here and see for yourself!
  5. Remember the time when a video of an LTA enforcement officer that stopped an offending PMD rider by giving the rider a good kick, causing the offender to fall off his PMD? Now, something similar is going viral in Malaysia. According to The Star, the incident happened in Sibu, a town in Sarawak, Malaysia where two police officers were conducting a spot check at Jalan Temple around noon. A motorcyclist that was approaching the road block decided to turn around to avoid them but failed to do so when one of the officers acted quickly by giving the biker a martial art-style kick. In the report, Sibu OCPD Asst Comm Stanley Jonathan Ringgit explained that the offender works at the a hotel nearby and has several offences to his name. Other than not having a driving license and having a modified bike, its road tax has also expired and it was not covered under any insurance too. 46687388_923477234821643_832602979362855331_n.mp4

  13. Another sad news of a traffic accident. 2 Singaporeans killed in motorcycle crash in Thailand on New Year's Eve. A horrific motorcycle crash in Thailand's southern Phatthalung province on New Year's Eve (Dec 31) has claimed the lives of a Singaporean couple. Mr Ng Yong Sing, 27, was riding a motorcycle with Ms Vanalyn Png, 22, as his passenger when they were thrown into a three-metre deep drain at around 1.20pm. Both victims were employees at the Select Group food and beverage chain. Mr Ng was a business development executive who had recently received a scholarship from the company, while Miss Png started as a marketer less than six months ago. http://www.asiaone.com/singapore/2-singaporeans-killed-motorcycle-crash-thailand-new-years-eve?xtor=EREC-16-4[Emarsys_Newsletter]-20180102&extid=6934d0cfb7b252f1ae9f0dbddf5ff88ca8637e77 http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/2-sporeans-killed-in-motorbike-crash-in-thailand Wishing all to BE SAFE on the roads.

  17. I promised him I will start a thread for him so here goes. Congrats bro in your quest for your Class 2B license which you have embarked on since........... 11 November 2013 And I am not proud to say that you are currently still at Lesson 1 to date. Take this thread as your "hall of shame" (kidding la) for being the King of Procrastination or you could use it as a motivation and channel it to your advantage now that you have so many others here rooting for you (I am sure they will) haha. Will be documenting his whole progress here. @kobayashigt
  18. http://news.omy.sg/News/Local-News/story20141020-300024 Nearly three in four motorcyclists here have had an accident before, and most admit that the mishaps were of their own doing. Poor judgment calls - from tailgating to cutting off other vehicles - were the leading reason why they lost control of their motorbikes, a recent survey has found. But in accidents involving external factors, other vehicles were blamed as the leading culprit, the findings revealed. Many riders also said that they have experienced aggressive behaviour from other motorists. The survey on motorcycle safety, commissioned by local automaker Alife Air Automobiles, was conducted between July and last month, and polled 472 riders online and through face-to-face interviews. Among the respondents who said they had been in an accident before, 30 per cent cited decision-making errors as the reason, 18 per cent said it was because they violated road rules such as by speeding, and another 13 per cent attributed it to fatigue. In total, reasons related to the motorcyclist's own actions accounted for 71 per cent of accidents, the study indicated. Gerard Pereira, operations manager at the Singapore Safety Driving Centre (SSDC), said it was good that motorcyclists were aware of their actions in causing the accidents. Still, he often sees riders squeezing between other vehicles and going too fast. The way some motorcyclists negotiate turns at traffic lights can be problematic too. Sulaiman Ahmad, an SSDC instructor with 13 years of teaching experience, said: "The bikes often do not form up (to turn), like the cars do. Some come from the left and heavy vehicles will not be able to see them - it's quite dangerous." While the riders polled readily admitted their shortcomings, the study also found that 29 per cent of the accidents were caused by external factors, including other vehicles (15 per cent), motorcycle defects (6 per cent) and weather conditions (5 per cent). Close to half of all respondents said they have, in the past year, experienced "hostile actions" from other motorists - defined in the study as verbal, visual and physical abuse - or from motorists using their vehicles in an aggressive fashion towards the riders. Tan Zong Ren, 29, a broker who rides to work daily, said drivers need to "start treating motorcycles like cars". "Many a time, drivers do not move fully into the next lane to overtake. They will move just enough past the motorcyclists, who risk being sideswiped," Mr Tan added. Devan Nair, chairman and group chief executive of Alife Air Automobiles, feels that motorcyclists could do with a better understanding of how their vehicles perform in different circumstances. "Sometimes, riders don't understand the aerodynamic design of the motorbike and when they take a corner, they lose control," he said. In April, his company launched the A-Service Centre, now located at Enterprise Hub, which offers professional diagnostic advice and servicing for motorbikes. Through this facility, he hopes to better educate riders about their machines. "The motorcycle is a precision tool, not just about fancy design," he added. adrianl@sph.com.sg - See more at: http://news.omy.sg/News/Local-News/story20141020-300024#sthash.HzFLHIYM.dpuf

  20. Driver of above car, please contact me if you need help or video footage of your accident with the motorcycle and silver taxi that rammed into you. Happened today at 4.47pm, at the SLE exit to Lentor Avenue / Yishun. Any bros here know how to extract the rear camera video of dual channel car cameras? It is 1 avi file but I can see the front and rear video using car cam software or VLC player.
  21. Hi All, I just had an accident with a motorcycle and would like to seek your kind opinions on the party who was at fault. I was stationary at a red traffic light on a bi-directional two lane road (one lane for each direction) with single continuous white line in between the 2 lanes. After checking my left side mirror and my left blind spot, I unlocked my car doors for my rear passenger to alight from the left. As my rear passenger opened the door, a motorcycle crashed into the opened door as he tried to overtake me on the left by squeezing between the curb and my vehicle. The motorcyclist fell and sustained minor injury to his leg. His motorcycle and my door were also slightly damaged. Who do you think is at fault? Thanks in advance!
  22. Hi everyone, I have read some threads that they say you will be fined and get demerit points when you got into an accident. So I was curious whether how will it work for my case. I have met 2 accident on the same day. One of the accident is the bike hit the rear of my car on the highway, while the other accident is I was going straight on the green light and hit a right turning vehicle. I made a police report and went to consult a doctor and got two days of MC. So for this case, will I get 6 demerit points and $200 fine two times (total 12 points and $400 dollars fine) since its two accident on the same day? Thanks for the help *I am still on P-plate...

    Scooting around the World

    Scooting around the world on a Vespa http://www.todayonline.com/lifestyle/travel/scooting-around-world-vespa Juvena Huang is much like your regular Singapore girl the colleague you go to yoga lessons with, or your best friends earnest kid sister with a love for bikes. But unlike most, the 27-year-old is also embarking on a trip around the world today. On her Vespa scooter. Alone. This journey started because a good friend passed away in 2009, revealed Huang. He was a motorbike rider who was always taking long distance rides to countries around the region and spoke of riding around the world. Nothing happened to him until the rare occasion he decided to drive. He ended up in a car accident which took his life. The uncertainty and brevity of life struck me hard. I wanted to do something crazy for once. Visit her blog or Facebook for updates: http://thewanderingwasp.blogspot.sg https://www.facebook.com/thewanderingwasp Hats off to this lady!
  24. Cat D – for motorcycles – S$6,801 to set another record high. These piece of paper can buy a 2 ~ 3 used bikes in the old days. I can't understand why there is such a high demand for motorcycles. Nowadays, I can see more people riding the luxury bike like Harley Davidson, BMW etc.. These people indirectly or directly push the coe up, I think so. Normal people need a small cc bike for personal or to do dispatch job etc. This coe has a great impact on these group of riders. In the current coe, LTA should sub-divide the Cat D category to Cat D1 & Cat D2. D1 for motorcycle less than 200cc and D2 for motorcycle above 200cc. How can I know the sale figure of the motorcycle maker ?
  25. Just throwing this out here is case anyone might have a recommendation. I'm looking for someone that is willing to have a go at troubleshooting and repairing a motorcycle dashboard (lcd panel type). Suspected problem is a joint or solder crack due to vibration over time as the problem was first intermittent at higher vibration levels and then degraded. I have been told that the lcd panel is now totally blank (backlight is fine, warning lights are fine, just the lcd display kaput). So no harm letting someone have a go at it and see if anything can be done, i have already sourced a replacement from Italy but thought maybe i'd give this idea a shot. The unit is small (approx. 20cm x 12cm) and a self contained unit, only one CANBUS input in from the ECU if i'm not wrong. Can be easily removed and transported. From my understanding it is purely a display unit and does not contain any immobilizer. If anyone has suggestions for a shop or even an electronics hobbyist please let me know.
