    if you willing to pay car parking price i guess no one can stop bikes going in and take up one car lot rite?

    if they dun have bike lots, they are not wrong to not let you in too, cos if no lots, we sure illegal park correct? this type of management imo, is jus very inconsiderate. it's time all buildings/ shopping centers come standard with parking lots for bikes.

    I really don't understand the management. If money is the problem, why not allow bikes in, and charge them car rates? I don't mind paying for one car space and take the entire lot for myself. More space for me and my pillion to dismount, and less chance of scratches. (Other bikes that come in would pay for a car lot anyway and probably won't try to squeeze into my lot.)

    i think in yesterdays straits times forum page there was an article pertaining to the lack of bike parking lots in orchard road.

    in sg, bikes r always discrimated... have u ever seen a petrol kiosk attendant pumping petrol for a motorbike? riders pay lower price for petrol huh? many of us even pump the best grade (v-power etc.). if they can help taxi-driver pump cheap diesel why wouldn't they help riders pump v-power?

    some worst... after i pump liao, walking to cashier pay... attendant kpkb ask me to push my bike away frm pump (not in a polite way) to make way for a car... y? jus bcos the car is a bmw?

    In central thailand the pump attendants pump petrol for me i was not used to it loh. In SG they dun pump for me i find it normal... Why cry over spilled milk? Taking a light hearted approach to everything and making do with what is available is a much happier option.
    P-plate should be an attitude to safety and riding. There's always more to learn.

    Times and situations change.

    Not too long ago, Hong Kong retailers were famous for looking down on Mainland Chinese and gave them very bad service. But after the 1997 economic crash and the rise of middle class mainlanders, Hong Kong now welcomes them with open arms.

    While I cannot say that the same will happen in Singapore with motorcyclists and bicyclists, it might not be that long before driving a car in Singapore is so prohibitively expensive that more people turn to public transport and more affordable modes of personal transport. Maybe that will force people to change their mindset.

    i totally agree: i drove a pickup for 4 years never get summoned b4: when i ride bike always got TP stop me say i reckless or inconsiderate when u eplain u trying to avoid other cars they only think they TP eevrybody WILL give way to them so it means all SG car drivers will give way to bikers...

    btw ALL MP rich ppl here drive cars so they will be bias against other rd users: if u have been using roads here everday u will notice how many illegal modified cars with super big exhaust y LTA don't catch only catch scrambles???

    oso see how many heavy vehicles go beyond speed limit sometimes even faster than my bike: TP got gie a damn???

    oso y TP always look out 2 summon motor inconsiderate driving, etc when they can jolly well summon or clamp down on car drivers who don't give way to pedestrain / bikers?????

    oso when a double decker bus hit my bicycle from behind the TP say too bad i did get serously injured so too bad they won't do anything: the inspector from the SMRT oso blame me without asking me what happen: best is to imigrate out of this PAP (Pride & Prejudice )control country where your life is not even worth a cent!!!

    Stereotypes are just hard to undo once the general public are brainwashed with it. Like people associate Rock with sex/drugs, Hiphop with pimps/angst, motorcyclists with inferior/reckless road users.

    There's no short term solution to this i suppose, only long term re-education will have any effect.

    I find it very inconvenient to park in orchard/ CBD area. Many of these buildings/ shopping centres do not allow for bike parking. Even if they do, there are limited bike lots. Who can really blame bikers for parking illegally along pavements sometimes?

    I also find that car drivers (I also drive btw) tend to USE bikers to filter into our lane. I notice them coming super close to my bike to cut in. I doubt they feel the danger, but hoy I feel every bit.. sometimes can't help feeling pissed. I always keep a distance from bikers.. even b4 I started riding.

    Haha oh wel guys.. but take heart that there is "a Cool biker image" in the opinion of some girls. lol..

    The general opinion of the public towards motorcyclists are '2nd class'. Because motorcycles are the cheaper alternative transport. And most people think that car owners are more stable and matured. Even though it may not be the case. This is part and parcel of the entire package. But for expats riding on a class 2 motorcycle, people will view them different.

    All thanks to the stereotyping and discriminating mentality of our society.

    Question

    Here is what I think...

    1)
    compare road accidents & deaths stats for two v/s four wheeler in Singapore. The insurance companies are just protecting their bottomline. You would do the same

    2)
    Does not pay out given the amount of petrol bikes fill. Their efforts are better focussed elsewhere

    3)
    yeah, this one is frustrating.

    4)
    the way bikes are ridden on singapore roads, sentosa is the only place left which is not nerve-wracking. do you want scare away all tourists from sentosa?

    5)
    have not seen one yet. this sign is probably meant for under 100cc bikes which cant maintain highway speeds

    6)
    Are you blind? Seriously, are you blind? Is this not what 70% of mcyclists do?

    7)
    why? you tell me why? Have you done any research here? Have you got data to prove otherwise?



    Seriously, so many motorcycle riders in singapore openly break traffic laws - weaving in and out of traffic, sharing lanes, fail to use indicators, squeeze between lanes even while driving 100kmph on expressways, drive on bus-lanes, park on pavements , etc etc. Why are you surprised?

    I ride a bike, I obey all traffic rules, and fellow mcycle riders sometimes look at me as if I am a fool.

    know why have to squeeze between lanes at 100km/h on expressways??
    cos those idiotic car drivers think tat once they reach 90km/h they can think tat the right lanes is their grandfather built one liao...these ppl are known as ROAD HOGS n they need to be re-educated.

    stay calm and carry on...

    and why complain the pump attndent don pump for you? our tanks are small enough and we can do it ourselves for goodness sake. there are more cars pumping usually and they cant attend to everyone immediately too. some drivers are realy noob at pumping petrol.
    GENERALLY, i believe most riders are more considerate than drivers. drivers who also ride are much more road friendly IMO coz they emphatize with the bikers too.

    just my twenty cents.

    Cuz SSDC/BBDC/CDC did not teach motorists how to pump petrol?

    I think for bikes, they use chains to clamp your wheel. Better for you to bring along a bolt cutter. They clamp, you cut...
    First learn stand, then learn fly. Nature's rules biker-sans. Not mine...

    Discrimanation is everywhere , juz have to live wif it . As long as the mindset of bikes being a poor man's transport still exists , bikers will always be discriminated , regardless of how rich the person is .

    Anyway , we have our freedom not to go to the place of interest , there r still many pther places to go mah .

    When i travel in other countries, people actually go out of the way to accomodate my bike. A good example was in Thailand, where they shifted a BMW 7 series out of the enclosed compound so that my Super 4 could park inside safely.

    i'm not sure about this thread. but enlighten me.

    i mean, if most motorcyclists claimed that they are as good as they are on the road, we would have more better drivers, cus I am Pretty Sure that mcyclists-turn-drivers would change their mentality once they step into their newly aquired 4wheelers..

    maybe we can organise a dinner outing? gives everyone a reason for de meet-up and know-each-other thingy as well.

    if it really works, maybe we can form a group going ard fighting for our rights as 'motorists', and not just double standards everywhere. there's bound to be trouble here and there, no doubt, but guys, trying is 50% success rate, either yes, or no. but if we dun even try, and just complain and do nothing,
    then its 0%. sporeans are known for NATO. so... ...

    make it happen, guys..

    Default Sorry for being long winded..just my two cents

    its nt tat i'm against motorcyclist or anything...but sometimes its the bad eggs amongst the good ones that spoils the entire group.
    I will call it stereotyping...

    One half lies on the mindset of the society...
    relating bikers to nt so well to do family..nt as matured compared to the drivers..

    the other halfs lies on ourselves the bikers...
    actually we ourselves are also stereotyping here..we sees the society for discriminating us...although there are some who r nt!
    okok..this point aside....

    the fact is that young guys, when reached the legal age of 18, get their license..wat kind of vehicle would he get?an average guy could only afford a bike..
    After he gets a bike...being young and normally more impulsive..drives more recklessly/dangerously on more occasions thus also spoiling the entire image of the biker community..

    i'm nt saying that there arent any young drivers driving their rich dads cars dangerously but the numbers are definitely much lesser compared to bikers..

    neither m i saying that only young ppl rides/drives recklessly...some immature old fags also does stupids things on the roads too..

    We hav much to blame for..being discriminated...(that doesnt means that they r right to discriminate us) & we hav much to do if we really wan to change the point of view of the entire society..

    IMHO, I think paying the same as a car for a parking lot for a bike may not be the right solution. In fact, it could furthur fuel the hatred for bikers by drivers. Imagine bikers start coming into parking lots each occupying a space 5 times that of their width. Of course it's a different case for a Goldwing. Wouldn't a car use that space more efficiently?

    While it may seem convenient to pay more for a car lot, in reality it won't work out. The better solution would be to build bike lots but then we're returning back to the vicious cycle; who the **** is going to build them?

    no one is going to build them. we park car lot is actually not a bad idea. hatred between drivers and riders is always there, no matter how u see it. u park there they'll make noise. yes. if we dun park there, will they thank us?

    and btw, haven u seen funny cars who park at bike lots? sometimes occupying up to 5-6 lots? i've seen it all too often.

    I recall I did park at a car lot once after telling the parking attendant that my bike was too big to park at the motorcycle lots & will pay for the car lot....

    But then again, that was at Lot 10 in KL.... hahahahahaha!!!

    2 Wheels good, 4 Wheels bad!
    How time flies...

    Big is certainly a warning but small can be downright scary! Never underestimate the effectiveness of small.

    Well, unfortunately... I'm a dual-vehicle owner. I got a VFR & a weekend-plate Getz. I like the comfort & praticality of my car when I need to travel with wifey & my 3 kiddos but still, I love the thrill & time/cost-savings factor of a bike.

    But I do agree that The Cathay is a stupid building... Lucky for me, there's nothing worth visiting down there...

I find it rather ridiculous.... besides The Cathay nothing much also, just plain cinema and some shops,like as if im so desperate to go there, Cine oso another brainless 1 haha but luckily beside got parking lot tho not free hehe
