    Default Need advice: 2B CNY Singapore Malaysia (JB/Melaka) trip



    Dear friends,

    Allow me to introduce, I have recently purchased my first bike Honda Phantom 200 (second hand), I am planning to visit something outside Singapore. Can you please help me to get answers for the below,
    1. Can i drive Singapore registered bike with Singapore licence in Malaysia (I am Indian national with employment pass)
    2. Does Singapore Third Party insurance works in Malaysia.
    3. Any guides/ tips for travel (with my wife) are welcomed.

    Cheers,
    Shital

    1. Yes you can.
    2. Check your insurance policy wording. Most policies do cover West Malaysia.
    3. Keep wife happy.

    Always park your bike some place safe.

    Thank you for your tips and I had wonderful trip to Malacca with my wife!

    I am sharing my experience just in case any new member will be taking a joy ride to Malacca.

    1. It was my first ever ride out of Singapore, so was little nervous; if you are feeling the same, its ok, just plan the trip accordingly.
    2. I had changed the engine oil a week before the ride, checked break shoes, chain oil, etc. the usual inspection.
    3. Had few phone numbers in Malaysia, just in case i need any help. One was the reliable tow truck cum garage, and other was a friend of my friend. Back-up like this will give you sense of security
    4. We started 5:00am from home and took Tuas Checkpoint for venturing out, we were told its less crowded than woodlands as there is a toll on motorcycles
    5. Purchase a Touch and Go card as you would need it.
    6. Just after the checkpoint there is petrol pump, make sure to tank full and check the tire pressure
    7. We took 4 stops whenever we saw P on the roadside signage boards
    8. Had brunch at Machap and another time to make sure tank is full (as Phantom do not have fuel guage)
    9. Drive on shoulder to get yourself comfortable with speed on new highway. Venture into leftmost lane if you can ride at road speed limit
    10. Repeat the same thing while coming back!

    Can check what is the number/contact for the reliable tow truck cum garage? TIA
