    Good article - obviously written by a British bloke with the M25 reference (its a UK highway).

    We should add on to improve on it in a Singapore way.

    Tips for squeezing with Malaysian bikers, anyone?

    They're very skilled and aggressive on their cubs and regularly attempt moves that no SG biker would ever think to do. Going between a large lorry and a bus with a gap less than a meter wide, etc.

    They won't give chance to you who looks in your mirrors before you squeeze, either, because the next cupkia will try to fit himself in that 50cm gap between your front wheel and the cars ahead.

    But what the agile little cubs lack is straight line power and the riders are mostly not very good at high speed cornering - do expect splitlane hogging (100cc cub trying to pass between traffic moving at 100kph and failing) and riders failing to accelerate decisively when the road is clear.

    DO NOT tailgate or honk at them because some will get aggressive and deliberately jam their brakes in your face... and since most of them have a huge box at the rear to absorb a rear end collision, the trailing bike WILL lose. (Have experienced before)

    DO keep a safe distance between them and you at all times especially when passing. A Johore gentleman racing to get home has far less safety awareness than yourself!

    A race with them has little gain and a lot to lose. On the other hand it just takes a couple seconds for them to scoot past you. It's not your business if they want to take unnecessary risks just to overtake a couple more cars in peak hour, so don't make it your own.

    i was an impatient driver for 2 years b4 switching to bike.

    just bout an RXK...u all noe its an old bike.

    its like a karma...wateva thing i do as a driver, these drivers seems like doing back to me.

    the stuff here seem obtained from a US source but good info nonetheless. The filtering too fast point and not checking all angles point are especially vital for our crowded roads

    Theory lessons in driving centres only help you to pass RTT, they don't do much in helping you stay alive on the roads.

    Biggest mistake many riders make: swinging a leg over the seat and never wanting to get off.
    Honda CG145, Honda CB150R ExMotion. And a few others in between...

    Stick Shift: The best car security system in America.

    The most common mistakes I made while learning to drive stick are:

    1. Once you reach the biting point of the clutch, there is a tendency to quickly pop the clutch. At this moment, you should continue progressively pulling your foot off the clutch as you keep accelerating.

    2. Not giving the car enough gas as you reach the biting point, thus stalling the car. Keep your foot on the gas and steadily increase it as the car starts to move.

    3. Becoming hysterical when you begin to roll back on an incline. Instead, put on the E-brake. As you let off the clutch and step on the gas, have the E-brake up, and when the car starts to go forward (you should feel/notice the hood rising), slowly release the brake.

    4. Not taking your foot completely off the gas while shifting gears. Then the engine over-revs loudly.

    5. Last but not least, forgetting to use the clutch as you come to a complete stop with the car in gear. This happens a lot in the beginning. When you have to stop, press the clutch all the way down and step on the brake to come to a complete stop to prevent the car from stalling. You can then put the gear in Neutral and take your foot off the clutch while your other foot stays on the brake.
