Hello fellow scooterists and fellow bikers...
I am honoured that our forum boss have given me the chance to start this scooter community. ok I do not want to sound like some thank you speech in some award ceromony...so let's get on to the point
I was thinking and thinking how am I gonna give a starting message? I spent a few weeks studying the rest of the bike communities from Phantom Knights and from Issac and Daniujie's posts...so I decided to modified their messages...(hope there are no copyrights procedures involved!)
ok let's start....
When were we formed?
I do not quite remember when the idea came to my head. I know that the moment it came to my head, I PM our forum boss, Andy…and he is in for it as well, as he is riding a Hexagon too. We did a few PMs, he did gave me some pointers on starting a bike community and I was taking my time to read up the threads from other veteran bike community starters like the Phantom Knights, Issac and Daniujie and learn some ropes from their thread too….see, the format of this piece of message is somehow modified from Daniujie’s format…hehe
So I would say the idea of this scooter community is officially generated on Fri May 16, 2003 and the community is officially born today...1st June 2003...we really hope to have a 1st year birthday bash next year this date
What the club is about?
Just like Phantom Knights, the Crusier group and the Female biker group, I am hoping to form an organized scooter group and gather as many scooter riders and lovers together so that we can share our passion.
Our club name?
Tentatively named SingaporeBikes.Scooters for the time being.
I have a lot of respect for Andy and Dawn on their Singapore Bikes forum. So most likely the title should hold “Singapore Bikes” in the front before our designated name of this scooter community. As of course, like all other communities in SBF, we will hold a poll to find the best name.
What is our objective?
Scooters are becoming more and more popular in the local biking scene and it is ashamed that we used to think that they are only for ladies!!!
(2 reasons for being ashamed...1st for having the narrow thoughts that female riders are only confined to scooters, which obviously they are NOT! and 2nd for scooters are only restricted to ladies! Which oso they are not! haha)
Scooters recently came out of the shadow where all the major motorcycle brands came out with their latest scooters to hit other bike categories face on in the open competition.
Well, that is the intro paragraph, haha…ok, due to the above situation. There will sure to be an increase of scooter riders. So we hope to organise a place for the scooter riders to mingle, exchange views, sought help and help other scooter riders, organise trips….etc etc…the list goes on. Imagine what we could do!
Long term goal?
Our beloved female boss of female biker group, Daniujie, have a long term goal….that is to be registered with ROC so that we'll be recognized in public and to do charity rides for different organisations. Wow…Today’s women are indeed ambitous and aren’t to be trifled with!
I believe our group would be working closely with Daniujie and her gang of angels to achieve this goals. Considering a noticable part of the female riders are scootering too. Not forgeting the other bike communities (I do not want to be called a “chee hong kia” for nothing!), we would love group outing by ourselves and with other bike groups just the same. Guess the goal is to bring the upmost welfare and enjoyment to the local bikers and most important to our members in the SBF. (Wah…sound a bit “three legged” hor? Hi Andy! )
What are the bikes in the club?
As I have mentioned in the thread “Gathering all scooter riders”, this community is not about just riders who own scooters. We would love riders on other type of bikes but yearning to be scooter , riders or planning in the near future, to own his or her ultimate scooter, or even learner that are interested in scootering as well. Not forgeting all the rest of the bikers from SBF.
Hope I gave a nice "speech". Lets hope all the communities work together and have one thing in common. That is to bring upmost welfare and previleges to our members in this bike forum...cheers!
