    Hi guys do send in your feedbacks to
    http://www.sentosa.com.sg/aboutus/contact.asp
    and kindly request if they will review their rules on not allowing motorbikes into the island. The more the merrier I've sent in mine already! *BELOW*

    "Hi i'm curious why motorbikes are not allowed entry into the Sentosa Island. We take up less space than cars and i'm sure it won't be a problem allocating bike lots on the island. I don't mind paying to ride in but even that is not allowed. It don't make sense and i hope you can give me a valid reason? I'm sure us bikers will be more willing to visit Sentosa more often if we are allowed to ride in and park there. Will consider gathering a petition from fellow bikers to make you change your rules on motorbikes. Do get back to me thanks."

    Once motorbikes are allowed in Sentosa, the Tourist island will be heaven for illegal racing, and cat & mouse race between hell-riders & TP.

    No lah i believe bikers know their limits. You don't see cars racing inside right? Do show your support don't pour cold water..if they do ease the rule on motorbikes everyone will be happy

    It is easy to find riders boost how they play 99 corners. Not a few even boost such in public forum. With all these, so you think Sentosa will allow bikes in? Do you think they know their limit?

    You went through Army, and you know all you need is 1 sabo king to spoilt the show.

    Bikers know their limit? Is this what you see on the road?

    Remember it is 1 sabo king biker that raise the riding age limit from 16 to 18 about 10 years ago.

    Wanna to know why Sentoas allow cars, and not bikes? Access TP data and you will know why.

    With red light camera, pp still beat red light. No wonder TP raise from 6 to 12 points for beating red light. And pp still beat red light.

    Installation of speed camera help? It still take many candid pictures. Increase points in 1999 also like that.

    Many motorists become good boys and girls after seeing these machinces, but many are not deferred by it also.

    I also wish to ride to Sentosa, but we have to look at the whole picture.

    Yupe.. tt is what they need.. Then barricade or bar all bikes from entering further will do.. Of course they can implement a fine or sort for any offence..
    tt will do the trick...

    and scramblers can easily have abit of off-road fun in sentosa...given the layout! thus the safety concerns...

    i do agree with Visual Bro n Karmatrix tat Harley n scramblers may turn the table upside down like hell if they enter Sentosa, 2gether with KIPS also. Unless the Sentosa management line up a list of restriction what type of bikes can go in.......eg no trailing bikes, racing bikes o bikes producing 2 much smokes o noise etc).

    Or the final suggestion, allow all the bikers to park at the entrance after the bridge....

    That applied to responaible bikers only.

    The more difficult it is, the more shiok it is for hell-riders. Then they can show off. Ask those TP in the 80's that involved to chasing illegal racers, and you will now why.

    Put restriction on certain bikes - that will consider discrimination by those kanna restricted. Do Sentosa will want to waste time to handle these complain? Nowadays SG pp like to complain.

    So to fair, entry or non entry for all bikers.

    Also, can non-bikers who man the booth can tell the different of different bikes brand & model? Some bikers also can not tell the different bewteen different make of cars.

    Once Sentosa allow pp to park near visitor departure area, there will be sabo kings trying their luck to ride further inside Sentosa. Give them 1 meter, they want 1 KM

    What is the different different between parking near the bridge or visitor center and parking near WTC? Not much actually - still can not ride inside

    Agree, sheltered parking with a linkway to the monorail station or bus stop is a MUST. Er, is this too much to ask?

    I tot racnig is abt speed? Then humps are used to reduce speed? and uneven rds, although are more difficult and challenging, but more risk of bike damage. I think there are better rds for those crazy hell riders then for them to race in sentosa, kenna tip off and police seal the entrance/exit rite?

    Do you understand behaviour of illegal racing? Go to TP file on 80s, when illegal racing was a serious social problem, and then you understand.

    Illegal racing has little or even no regret for anything and anyone.

    Have you seen cars & bikes go through humps at more than 60KmH at Car park?

    What is the cost of ecomony damage to tourism done if Police has to seal of entrance/exit? Like the only fatal accident in fantasy island, all you need 1 incident to have unlimited damage.

    Instead of waiting for police to act, they simply don't let bikes in. Simple & safe for every1.

    What we need is a big public carpark near the bridge to sentosa... The one near WTC is always overcrowded.

    please do ur bit......

    this is my feedback to Sentosa

    'to become a world class tourist attraction, u got to start with the locals first. for a start, why not allow motorcycles into sentosa? if cars are allowed, why not motorcycles? they pay, we too can pay. they pollute the air, we polute lesser.

    please, not all locals drive, and if u allow motorcycles to go in sentosa, definitely your attendance will go up by at least 20% more!'

    I think we've gone a bit out of point here... Seriously, I do not understand the mentality of illegal or hell racers. That is why I dun think that they'd wanna race in Sentosa lor.

    Ya, I've seen scram gg at 60km/h or more gg over humps not juz in carpark...

    I dun see any economy damages if the police is gonna conduct a rd block at the exit.

    My point is, I do not understand why bike is not allowed, and I'm not fighting for the sentosa island mgmt to allow bikes entry to island. I only wanna know the reason/s why bike is not allowed. And i believe that no bike entry is to prevent illegal racing is not a valid point.

    the sentosa management did get back to me...this is wat they wrote:

    Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. We would like to
    offer you the following reasons for not allowing motorcycles on the island:

    1) Certain roads/places such as the bicycle tracks, naturewalk trail,
    pedestrian walkways, service road, beach/picnic grounds are out of bounds
    for cars. Bollards are placed at these areas to prevent cars from entering.
    However motorcycles can easily access such areas and to introduce other
    preventive measures would be difficult as we need to cater to bicycle
    access.
    2) Increase in unauthorised and illegal parking along pathways is
    anticipated and this will also cause obstruction to pedestrians.
    3) Speed limit on the island is at 40km/h and enforcing this on motorcylists
    is nearly impossible. Tendency to go beyond the speed limit or taking
    advantage of certain stretches of widening road as racing track is very
    high.
    4) We need to ensure the road safety of our visitors who usually walk from

    the sentosa management did get back to me...this is wat they wrote:

    Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. We would like to
    offer you the following reasons for not allowing motorcycles on the island:

    1) Certain roads/places such as the bicycle tracks, naturewalk trail,
    pedestrian walkways, service road, beach/picnic grounds are out of bounds
    for cars. Bollards are placed at these areas to prevent cars from entering.
    However motorcycles can easily access such areas and to introduce other
    preventive measures would be difficult as we need to cater to bicycle
    access.
    2) Increase in unauthorised and illegal parking along pathways is
    anticipated and this will also cause obstruction to pedestrians.
    3) Speed limit on the island is at 40km/h and enforcing this on motorcylists
    is nearly impossible. Tendency to go beyond the speed limit or taking
    advantage of certain stretches of widening road as racing track is very
    high.
    4) We need to ensure the road safety of our visitors who usually walk from
    one attraction to another
    5) Some of our main trunk roads are single laned. This may be hazardous
    especially to our coach drivers who have to manoeuvre these narrow
    roads/blind spots and at the same time look out for motorcyclists who may

    Sentosa replies actually no surprise to me. Some of their points were discuss here before.

    Not to pour cold water my friend, but it is quite useless to debate. They will always have some kind of a reason. Previously when cars are not allowed, they also have their so called reasons. Ultimately, it is for them to say whatever. I'm dissappointed too, but this is Singapore afterall.

    Well actually they should have a enclosed area for us to park our bikes on the island itself, we wont be able to ride around on the island though. Jus like a normal entrance to..lets say a Zoo.

    Exactly. Like a carpark reserved for those who paid the entrance fee.

    Anyway as I biker I also don't support letting bikes into Sentosa. In fact, I don't even like the idea of cars inside although there are practical reasons to it. And what if one day a biker knocks down a tourist on that island? The entire biker community will come under fire just because of one farker.

    Harley riders are mostly mature adult riders and they knows what to do. Yes, I agreed that the exhuast pipe are loud, but it does sounds better than those 2 stroke sport bikes that mod the pipes. At least the sound from harley is the legendary sound of the living spirit of the touring bikes. But what abt the sound of those 2 stroke sport bikes, its so ear piercing. If the sport bikes is using those original racing exhuast like those big bikes, the sound is great. A pure racers and cruisers love the pure exhuast sound, its the hell riders that love the ear piercing screaming exhuast pipes. Well, thats my personal opinions. NO OFFENSE...

    All their worries apply to cars also. Its a biased and unfair judgement passed to us bikers. Talk about illegal parking, Single lane roads right? What if a car parked there? Car over take more dangerous. Speed limit, 40. Dont think so... Buses maybe going at 40kmh. But not the cars. So overall, you can shoot them back bu saying the things cars will do the same thing, except they are 4 time more dangerous. So lets ban cars and bikes! Give us a parking lot on the island!

    maybe can ask them based on what statistics did they arrived at the conclusion that "Speed limit on the island is at 40km/h and enforcing this on motorcylists is nearly impossible. Tendency to go beyond the speed limit or taking advantage of certain stretches of widening road as racing track is very high." This seems like a baseless assumption.

    Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. We would like to
    offer you the following reasons for not allowing motorcycles on the island:

    1) Certain roads/places such as the bicycle tracks, naturewalk trail,
    pedestrian walkways, service road, beach/picnic grounds are out of bounds
    for cars. Bollards are placed at these areas to prevent cars from entering.
    However motorcycles can easily access such areas and to introduce other
    preventive measures would be difficult as we need to cater to bicycle
    access.

    [color=blue] if sentosa management has forecast such problems to exist, i think enforcement agencies such as Npark can be consulted, so far i do not really see motorcycles barraging their way in east coast park


    2) Increase in unauthorised and illegal parking along pathways is
    anticipated and this will also cause obstruction to pedestrians.

    Again so, various enforcement agencies such as chubb, cisco, traffic, lta, nparks can be consulted, the fine generated can be used to make sentosa a better place for all


    3) Speed limit on the island is at 40km/h and enforcing this on motorcylists
    is nearly impossible. Tendency to go beyond the speed limit or taking
    advantage of certain stretches of widening road as racing track is very
    high.

    enforcing this is impossible, how does this assumption goes about, so the tendency for cars does not exist at all?



    4) We need to ensure the road safety of our visitors who usually walk from
    one attraction to another

    i would think all automobiles will post a threat to pedestrians be it 2,4,6 or 8 wheels

    5) Some of our main trunk roads are single laned. This may be hazardous
    especially to our coach drivers who have to manoeuvre these narrow
    roads/blind spots and at the same time look out for motorcyclists who may
    overtake.

    the design of the road cannot be blamed on the users, maybe the mgt can look into placing blind spot mirrors and speed regulating strips to reduce the chances of such overtaking, likewise these does not means cars do not stand the likelihood to overtake as well


    May we suggest that you park your motorcyle at the Seah Im Road car park
    (near the HarbourFront Bus Interchange) and from there take our shuttle bus
    into Sentosa.We welcome everyone to our island resort and appreciate
    invaluable feedback
    such as yours. However, in Sentosa, it is our top priority to ensure that
    we do not compromise on the safety of our visitors.

    Thank you once again for being a regular visitor and for appreciating the
    efforts we are putting to re-develop the island resort.
    We look foward to welcoming you back and to experience a new Sentosa in the
    coming months.[/quote]

    No.1 can't they place the bollards more closer so tht only bicycles n not motorcycles can enter...i believe all are educated n follow some rules.

    No.2 something definatly can be arranged.

    No.3 is a bias assumption.

    no.4 wats bigger bike or car?

    No.5 some public roads have worse driving conditions. i believe ppl who will ride in will be at least P platers n not L platers.

    especially to our coach drivers who have to manoeuvre these narrow
    roads/blind spots and at the same time look out for motorcyclists who may
    overtake.
    1) bicycles can be lifted over the bollards if the width between 2 bollards were to be shortened.It is an assumption that all motorcycles would want to access such areas which are usually inhospitable to most road-biased motorcycles in the first place.

    2) With all the construction going on inside sentosa, I am sure a designated motorcycle parking area could be built at a very low cost.

    3) Cars also can go above 40km/h easily, and can also take the widening road as a racing track. THis is an assumption that is biased. Enforcing on cars speeding above 40km/h has been non existant so what makes cars any different as far as enforcing the 40km/h speed limit?

    4) Are u suggesting that motorcycles are dangerous machines that are likely to be hazardous to sentosa visitors? dont these same visitors experience motorcycles on the mainland and whatever country they come from? To my knowledge, the visitors to sentosa mainly come from singapore which is populated by approximated 300,000 bikes (correct me if im wrong). I dont think many sentosa visitors hail from motorcycle-free paradise islands.

    5) The duty of care, as we learned in 3 classes of motorcycle learning school, is always to the motorcyclist. Caution will be exercised especially if the result of being reckless could be fatal.

    No matter what... It can be debated... Two things come to my mind that are the most hot category which THEY will definately trigger. "COST" & "SAFETY".

    Cost is too sensitive to be added or discussed because there will be a impact to drivers and, riders should it is implemented. More equipment will be deployed to tighten up abuser.

    Safety is most important in sentosa due to their design in routes and roads travelling which significantly shows that is more suitable for riders than drivers... (Travel down to view at the congested routes and roads) To approve one, must disapprove the other. Simply allow a vehicle that delivers more passenger?

    Giving a lame reply with such excuses are a way of rejecting consumer into sentosa.
