I thought even a simple fool would have understood the reasons WHY SENTOSA WOULD NOT ALLOW BIKES into the resort area!
Although the management gave HALF TRUTHS in their reply, is has been pretty OBVIOUS even to a sotong Ah Beng or motor MAT , that when you allow bikers in to Sentosa ,you will also end up having the biker's bad reputation to follow thru.
They would allow an ANG MO with a HARLEY in but let's face the FACTS of life...how many locals have Harleys?
And even if these same locals would have a Harley they would not be bothered about this NO BIKERS rule in Sentosa becos they can always drive their E240 or whatever into Sentosa!
Bikers just don't get it ( but I sense DEEP inside they know) that the habits and charateristics that accompany bikers or ANYONE associating with bikes IS NOT A GOOD IMPRESSION!
Argue or debate all you want becos at the end of the day it wouldn't make any difference to those who do not see bikers favourably.
This characteristics of bikers had been drawn or rather imprinted upon the mind sets of the upper class ppl which has been a bare truths ( of biker's unsavoury characteristics) replayed over and over again.
But I don't blame these upper class ppl for drawing upon such a conclusion about bikers. Becos most of the time, bikers do represent unruly types and associating with such ppl does not bring about any benefits to Sentosa which seeks to attract the VERY UPPER CLASS type of ppl.
So simple and yet so truthful!
