    waiting for the DJ here to talk about the magical penguins
    Always ride safely and defensively.
    Repair bike cheap and fast,
    Repair body expensive and slow.


    There is only one best mechanic for your bike...YOU

    Yamaha Yzf-R15 :

    Like!
    - Low maintenance cost
    - Brought me up to ipoh
    - average size, easy to handle
    - low, easy to corner. Well balanced
    - Can cheat others looking through their mirror thinking it's R1
    - Good FC! 39km - 42km/L
    - Electronically savvy
    - Much room to expand and increase performance

    Dislike:
    - Lots of "clothings" to strip just to get to spark plug
    - 3mnths into ownership bearing burst
    - ridiculous sound from fuel tank (electronic was the answer....)
    - Full fairing = full KO from insurance
    - Not enough response as compared to other offers like Honda and the such
    - One cylinder = lotsa screaming
    - Tyres are limited to front tyre sizing for both wheels.
    - Not VERY well design, looks a little confusing for a sports.. or was it street? No?

    Phantom TA200

    Pros:
    - Save fuel
    - RELAXED really relaxed riding posture

    Cons:
    - bloody long and wide handles makes it hard to squeeze
    - not a very powerful 2B bike

    Vespa PX150 (Old One)
    Pros:
    - Artsy chicks love it
    - looks cute with a bamboo/cane box
    - places to put your helmet (between your legs)
    - simple and easy to operate
    -cheap mantainence

    cons:
    - overtaking is almost impossible
    - above 80km/h the bike will start to take off
    - headlights and tail lights always screw up

    CBR400RRN:

    Pros:
    - Lovely power and feel from a 400cc
    - Excellent Handling
    - No problems overtaking
    - Nice sounding for 400 CC

    Cons:
    - Fuse blows sometimes
    - Engine is very hot (bad for the balls)
    - People will sometimes think its a 1000cc which when you are stuck at 2A with a few months left to go before getting a class 2,
    is quite a pain.

    Yamaha RX-Z 135: Pros- Great for commuting, Easy & low maintainence, Spare parts everywhere, 2-stroke power, Very durable.
    Cons- 2T needed, Need to always ensure smoke emission is acceptable, Old model, Dying off soon as SG going towards 4-strokers.

    Suzuki DRZ-SM 400: Pros- Great riding position, One of the cheaper supermoto alternative, easy & low maintainence for this cat., lots of accessories since common bike, alright for short commuting, ample amount of torque.
    Cons- Certain essential spare parts might need to pre-order(Suzuki), no unique feeling as common bike, resale value quite bad recently, low top speed, might get butt-ache after long distance(touring) of riding due to slim seat & vibration(well, its a supermoto afterall).

    Yamaha MT-09: Pros- One of the cheaper class 2 bikes, light & nimble, high amount of torque, very smooth when crusing, unique exhaust note, upright siting position, new model so quite unique, new technology, fc reasonable for the torque given.
    Cons- snatchy when opening throtlle especially in low gear & A/Standard mode, need more attention and clutch play when opening throttle, low accessories as new model, minimal storage, backsplash will get your back wet especially pillion, new technology as in not sure if there might be future problems.

    Yamaha FJR 2013
    Pros - More power, nice posture, tons of space with 46L top box and panniers, electronic wind screen good for long travel as to block the cold winds, wide seat for the butt. cruise control, TCS and ABS. great bike for touring. full tank is 25 liter. I always top up about 20 liter which roughly about 400 km. The sports mode is great, once you toggle it you can feel the difference.

    Cons - when you not used to it, the bike seems freaking heavy. Need 2 person to bring it up once you drop it. Need to invest in a good sliders or canyon cage. squeezing in between cars is kinda scary for the first few months but after that once you get the feeling, it should not be a problem.

    2003 ST1300 with ABS

    Pro
    Lots of storage space. (built in panniers)
    Bright headlight even with stock H4 55w Bulbs.
    Adjustable beam
    Spacious for pillion even with a top box installed.
    Adjustable windshield.
    Stable. Even when cornering due to the weight of the bike.
    Shaft driven means no chain to lub!

    Con
    Hot. Hot air blowing directly at your shin if you didn't install the fairing deflectors.
    Big head cowl(mirror not foldable)
    Bike looks weird when riding without panniers.
    Too much fairing to remove if you like to DIY your bike.
    Almost impossible to lift when you drop the bike unless you know the technique.
    Need to find spacious parking space as the bike is fat.

    I like my bike because it runs fast and it does not spend much. and I don't like my bike because of sometimes it switches off during riding.

    That sounds dangerous man, switching off whilest riding. should check it out before something serious happen. Imagine, riding at 80km/hr and suddenly it offs by itself and there is a car behind who happens to drive at 100km/hr.
