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....
