    Default B-bone Ride To Hatyai - 25 to 30 Dec 08



    B-bone Ride To Hatyai

    Year end and also the time to clear outstanding leave, a planned trip up north to Hatyai, Thailand was scheduled to leave on Xmas day itself. It was meant to be a getaway and rewarding ourselves for working hard in 2008. Weeks prior to departure, a suggestion comes along and opportunities present itself that we t-loan a Daelim B-bone from CKA to test ride up to Hatyai. Being a new bike that only arrived at Sg shores in Oct 08, we were also curious about the endurance and capabilities of this B-bone - a 125cc belt-driven scooter. It was noted that this trip with a 2b bike, it's not about the speed but making it to and back from Hatyai. The other two bike was a GSR400 and a CB400 Super 4 Spec III.

    One week before the ride, we attended a workshop of getting ourselves equipped with the basic knowledge of where are the important parts on the B-bone. We had also requested that spare parts like CDI, Rectifier and a belt made available for the ride, just in case anything happen. On Xmas eve, we collected the B-bone at CKA HQ at Kakit Bukit and had adequate rest on the day of departure before beginning our journey up north.

    Well, I guess the rest I'll let the photos do the talking bah....

    Tapah







    At Tapah, we were greeted by a group of M'sian Vespa Riders that are on their way to Penang. They were amazed and curious about the B-bone and I had the honor of talking to them in my mother-tongue language, letting them know that this is a new Korean scooter called B-bone produced by Daelim. And the best part is that, they were shocked when I told them that we are on our way to Hatyai, Thailand for our riding trip. Their reply was like,'Are u sure?'. Then we say,'Yes. We are sure.' After which, they wish us all the best for our trip and not to foget that all the riders were being introduced and exchanged handshake and took photographs together. What a waste that we forgotten to take out our camera to capture this moment.

    Return Journey From Hatyai
    Date : 29 Dec 2008
    Time : 2.00pm

    Cruising Speed : 90 - 110 km/h

    Sadao, Thailand







    After Clearing Sadao Custom & Returning the Import/Export Documents







    After clearing the Bkt Kayu Hitam custom







    On the way to Bkt Kayu hitam Petronas Station





    Arriving at Bkt Kayu hitam Petronas Station







    While at Bkt Kayu Hitam Petronas station, had the opportunities to meet several groups of Malaysian big capacity bike riders and greeting were exchanged. They were similarly curious what bike is this and the routine of letting them know that this is a new Korean scooter, the B-bone by Daelim. Upon completion of topping up, toilet & drink break, we continued the long ride back to Singapore.

    Throughout the night, the weather was good and it was a relaxing ride back. During the Nilai stretch where the highway was clear, the B-bone were tested on a level stretch of road and were able to hit 125km/h on the B-bone meter, not bad indeed for a 125cc belt-driven bike.

    Back At GP Esso
    Date : 30 Dec 2008
    Time : 7am

    Tyre brand : Swallow (Made in Korea)
    Performance : Hold well in both dry & wet weather conditions































    After clearing the 2nd link custom, the B-bone is finally back on Sg soil.



    Summary
    Though the B-bone was just a 125cc belt-driven scooter, it had performed well in term of endurance and reliability. Delighted that the B-bone did not gave us any problems throughout the entire trip, and also the stability & handling of the bike was good as the entire weight distribution is low and along the centre of gravity.

    During the uphill & downhill ride to the Brahma Shrine, Phra Bhudda Mongkol Maharaj status and Guan Im temple, the B-bone was able to deliver the power and ride up the steep gradient without any problem.

    Hope you all enjoys the photos.

    I am really impressed that this Bone has gone that far to Thailand!!!!

    And 1 for the Korean.
    How time flies...

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

    Why didn't tell me you're going? I was around there the same time... could have joined you.

    Rode up to Bangkok with the Fino. My human body could not take it anymore and took the train back to Hatyai. Tough to ride a scooter all the way.

    For the return jorney left Bukit Kayu Hitam at about 11am arrived back in Singapore at about 11pm. Pump & go and 1 lunch & dinner stop. Will not do it again.

    Will do it again if I get back on real motorcycle again.

    Anyway, great that you showed how durable scooters really are.

    Check out the picture... some evidence. haha. Next time testing bike. Call me
