    Its true they say life begins at 40. When I reached 40, many health problems came. I felt so horrible. I felt my world was to end. I thought I would never ride bike again especially going malaysia.
    By the time I was 43, I managed to overcome my melancholy. 2006, I bought my last superbike honda cbr929. Imagine so happy again. I went riding to malacca alone. Stopped by malaysia tp. Ahem, was cau byt by radar. I told him I was goimg to visit my ailing grandmother. I told him , dont believe come follow. He let me go. Woowowowo.
    The ride to my kampung was uneventful and I rode home legally. Heheheh.
    nowadays , when I drive up, I always see many riders going so fast, I just close my eyes for all the happy and safe riding I had

    When I see such fast bikers zoom past me, I can only think back I, too was young once, just like them.... and I lived to tell the tale, hope that they will too... nowadays, I'm more interested in seeing scenery along the way than getting there in the shortest time...

    Last time, whenever we go up north and speed, we keep an eye out for the traffic on the opposite carriage way... whenever they flash their headlights, it means there is a speed trap up ahead, and we will slow down to the legal speed to avoid getting caught.... for the times that we got caught, it is a long story to tell over words here.... maybe next time if we do meet up over coffee in the future...

    my tyres still looks ok, maybe because i ride slow and also i use front brakes most of the time, heard that if you use rear brakes often, the rear tyres will wear out faster,

    anyway i will change soon for peace of mind

    If it is park at the motorcycle lots right before the exit to the down ramp, yes, it is mine... that is the only place I can safely park without obstructing other bikes, and it has to take up 3 lots!... so you see, parking a Spyder is not that easy.... the other day I visit NUH to see my mum who is warded there, according to SBF official parking guide, it says free parking for bikes, but the Spyder cannot squeeze through and the barrier won't open when you keep right... ended up have to park at open space further away... arrange for a meet up some time and you can take a closer look at my Spyder...

    Maybe the newer batch of DN-01 uses different brand of tyres and last longer... the front tyre wears out faster than the rear, which is normal... the problem with mine is I wear out the sides of the tyres more than the center... my daily route consists of more turns than straights... also, since the bike is equipped with linked brakes, I use the foot brake more than the front... only when I need more stopping power, then I will use both together....

    No need plan lah. Just decide a weekday, where it wont be crowded, meet, make sure each got passport valid, got cash card, got that Malaysian Toll card. And choose one custom point, go.

    Even Gelah Petah for roti prata and teh and evening time Ramly Burger is fun lah.

    yah , you right. but this is james maiden voyage VK. plan abit lah. seriously when i was younger, i really didnt plan any of my journey. would you believe it, many times, after working night shift 9pm to 8am, i would just straight away go malacca because i would have 2 days rest. and the next working day would be 2 to 9pm shift.
    but james being a starter should be informed first, whats to expect. AS it is you already planned for us : just decide a weekday, where it wont be crowded, meet, make sure each got passport valid, got cash card, got that Malaysian Toll card. And choose one custom point, go.

    Why not weekend? Weekday is hard for people who have to work.

    As long as you go before the kupkia brigade arrives, it should be fine. A short ride to the Shell Station near the JB CIQ to top up, then a ride to any place for makan. Can be in JB itself or outskirts like Kulai or even further places like Batu Pahat, Yong Peng, Kluang, or Pontian, all within an easy 1-2 hour ride from JB CIQ

    Arhhh...change the name joke. I have one too.

    Was flirting with someone, I think, and he was in turn flirting back.

    Me being that short....1.52m aka 5 ft exact. And obese. And him obviously taller.....we joked somewhere along the line...

    Him: Yes, I like girls like you, so cute and tiny!
    Me: Ermm.....I am cute.....just not tiny.

    Friends: You just need to change your name to Tiny! Then you are everything he likes!

    anyway i will change soon for peace of mind
    i just asked unique motors about tyres, there is available 130/70 but dunlop not bridgestone (original)
    can i ask u , can use dunlop front and bridgestone rear, or must be same brand both tyres?

    what brand are u using now?

    My front and rear are both Metzelers Z8... yes, you can use different brand for the front and rear wheels...

    RT is truly a gentleman. Has never met him but very accomodating. Thanks for the invite RT. I am more actually like a perverted stalker. Whenever i see a bike i like i would keep going to that place a see it. Strangely enough, near IMM at MSCP block, there is a Spyder. One day, saw the bike and noticed the rider coming from the area. The next days, I went to the car park. the rider wasnt there.suddenly he emerged. Had a good talk. guess what, he is also way above 50 but he rode the spyder like as if it is a normal bike. lol. the last few weeks, i have been stopping there as i like going IMM, but the spyder isnt there anymore. wonder why??

    James, would love to ride with you to Malacca one day just to show you around. but i hope one day we can sit around and i explain abt my work which makes it difficult to go at the moment. but there are a few young riders like lkm who are avid riders. maybe you can hook up with them.

    could hardly recognise imm

    i retired because of all the stress working in the banking industry was affecting my health, so i decided money was not everything since my kids are already mid 20s

    i guess its because our leaders want to make jurong the new city area. whats with the new underground expressway and the new link to Malaysia high speed rail. I
    as it is now, that area/roads are getting very busy in the morning.
    one of the new marvels there is the new hospital.

    Here's a Mandarin video (from Taiwan, I think) to share. Suitable for old-timers cos it is about a group of old-timers deciding to do a road trip on bikes.

    https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...56157281338091

    I got it via What'sapp from friends and was able to watch it on my phone (without facebook log-in). But was not able to watch on IE or Chrome unless I log-in to facebook (which I am too old to have).

    So enjoy and see it make sense.
    Yamaha Power Valve, Suzuki scrambler, Honda Scrambler (1992 - 1998)
    Suzuki Swift - 2001 till 2003
    Honda City - 2003 - 2011
    Honda Civic, VTI (2011 - 2015)
    Current....
    Suzuki Impulse, GSX400V (2014 - 2017, extend till Oct 2022)
    Honda Vezel - (2015 - Nov 2025)

    hihi thanks for the video, watched it 2 years back and can really relate to it
    though we are not that old, riding reminds me of my youth really,

    and riding brings a sense of peace for me that only riders can relate to

    I have not reached 50 but i took my 2b when i was 15yrs 8 mth at Eunos Ave 1a (i think this road dont exist now). Can still remember vividly the wooden office doors of the test booking office and practising the plank and pylon at night with other L riders. Those were the days.

    By any chance he's wearing a half helmet and grey Spyder RS?.... most probably he has taken a long ride up north... will try to organize a meet up next month or so, this month my schedule is too packed....

    Yes, I have a friend working as a procurement manager, it is so stressful that his BP and Cholesterol level shot way up... and the nurse says he should be a dead man soon... finally he gave up and do something much less stressful...

    Last time, it is just two poles and you just have to make a figure 8 without putting your feet down and considered pass for the section... now, it is 4 poles and you have to complete it within a certain time.... last 2 years or so I signed up for the NTUC safe riding course and after completing, can have a 10% discount on your next insurance premium by them... really paiseh, I failed every section.... but the discount still stands....

    I got it via What'sapp from friends and was able to watch it on my phone (without facebook log-in). But was not able to watch on IE or Chrome unless I log-in to facebook (which I am too old to have).

    So enjoy and see it make sense.
    Reminds me of the group that rides from Penang to England on 125cc cubs... sad that one of them did not make it back...
    Going somewhere isn't why I ride... riding is why I go..
    Past rides: XL100, CG110, Elsinore 125, CB175, CB250N, CX500, CBX400F, GL1000, CBX-6,
    V45 Magna.
    Present ride: DN-01, Spyder RT LTD

    Nope. its the red and black. he doesnt have a rear box. when i first saw the bike, he had his wife at the rear and when I met him, i asked him why he didnt install a rear box so that the wife will be more comfy relaxing to the back.he said the front compartment is big so no need to put extra box. i was like huhhhhh???

    My list is even shorter due to my height, and is it called inseam or instep? I only know, Crotch to Heel is 28 inches. And on wider seats, the legs has to open wider and its even shorter.

    1) Harley 883 low
    2) Vespa LX150/Et8/Yamaha Fino
    3) Any Kup Kia is fine
    4) Dream bike is the Yamaha Fazer 6 old version with the thundercat engine.
