  1. Sorry for thread hijacking but ... Just got my 2B license recently. I would like to try out riding on Singapore roads for a bit before fully committing to own a bike. What is cheaper and easier? Renting for a month? Buying a used motorcycle and selling it a month later? Buying a motorcycle that is near the end of it's COE? Any advice? Thanks

  3. Wow, I didn't thought of that. Thanks! I'll give it a try
  4. Nice, good to know that others received help from this thread too. I finally got to Practical/Lesson 3 after 4x2BL2. I made a ton of mistakes but somehow passed. The instructor might have good intentions to be lenient, but I feel I would be stuck on the basics even while on lesson 3 (hazard course/slope). Anyways, a question: I was following a car in the circuit. You know the cars in the circuit moves really slow. Following the car at really slow speeds in Gear 1/2, any throttle input would make the bike lunge/jerk. I assume should be half-clutching so any throttle inputs wouldn't be too
  5. Thanks dreamer_toons and bugeyed for the advice. My low-steep control improved considerably. Still needs work though Not needed. No riding done. They'll talk about the lesson structure, the circuit, and some really basic stuff about the motorcycle.
  6. Right, fairings do cost quite a bit. I guess its better if I look around the used section for some naked/street bikes.
  7. Thanks for the quick response both of you. I'll try them out on my next lesson. Cheers! Just saw your signature HaoKR. Have you ridden both the 4 stroke and 2 stroke versions of the RS125? Is it a good beginner bike to look forwards to? Reading on the net, the 4 stroke versions seems to be very underpowered.
  8. Just completed 3rd try on lesson 2BL1. I'm having some issues balancing and stopping reliably on slow speeds. Quite often, I feel that the right side is tipping over and I had to put my right leg down once or twice. It doesn't feel like I am in complete control. Any tips? --- Another query. What would you do if you're in a situation where: You are on a busy road with fast moving traffic. You are following a large vehicle. You try to leave additional space for better visibility and buffer time for any hazards. When you try to do so, the other vehicles would always cut in and fill up the
  9. Couldn't find one, so I made one. I thought it would be nice if all the 2B learners, like myself, have a thread to ask questions. If there is a similar thread out there, please close this and possibly sticky the other thread?
