  1. LTA should limit the mass of 2-wheelers to 400 kg, and 3-wheelers to 500 kg, then Can Am Spyders will thrive in Singapore. But I guess since 3-wheelers (especially Can Am Spyders) do not alleviate traffic congestion like 2-wheelers do, there is no incentive to allow 3-wheelers to thrive on Singapore roads, they add to congestion.
  2. Hi, my humble and with my limited knowledge is, it won't matter much. Reason being, what is the price difference between high COE and low COE? High = $7.5 k, low = $6k? It is about $150 per year. I would say the make and model, condition and mileage of the bike play a bigger role in the price. I feel that small, class 2B, common bread and butter bikes (including 2B scooters) are easier to sell, and sellers usually don't lose much as compared to big, luxurious, exotic sport or touring bikes (eg BMW RT, LT, Honda Goldwing etc) would have very limited market, the sellers usually lose
  3. I think the COE will not drop in near to medium term because of strong food delivery demand and high COE for cars. Yes, high COE for cars does affect the bike COE. I just sold my Burgman. The buyer who bought it used to drive a car, and due to poor economic climate, downgraded to bike.
  4. Hi, actually you can bid your own COE. I bidded my own COE when I bought my Suzuki Burgman 650 executive back in 2016. Actually it was the dealer who did the paper work for me, I just told them how much I wanted to bid and they did so accordingly. However, interesting events followed. I told the dealer to bid $6500, knowing that the COE in the past few bidding exercises hovered between $6000 and $6400. You know what? The final price ended up at $6501! I called the dealer immediately after the bidding ended, and he said that I was unsuccessful as he bidded per my instruction, $6500,
  5. Thank you so much for the prompt reply. I am contemplating between a Goldwing and a Can Am, and looking at used bikes. A Goldwing is a more established bike in Singapore as well as in the world market, however, it suffers from high road tax in Singapore. Riding a Can Am is sure to be a special and interesting experience. One a while I thought of buying a small car but I don't like to be boxed up! Lol. Cheers.
  6. People ask me "Why ride bike?", I ask them back "Why drive car?"

    You may lose your life when riding a motorcycle, but you lose the meaning of life if you don't ride one.

  10. Hi, I'm quite interested to get a Can Am Spyder. I've read this thread and many of the questions I have had been answered by kind forumers here. Thank you so much. However, I still have a few general questions about the Can Am Spyder, may I ask it here? 1. I understand that one needs to buy 2 motorcycle season parking for HDB parking, but how about short term, per minute, parking using cashard? Is the rate 2 times of motorcycle's per minute fees too? 2. Is the overheating problem solved by now, what I mean is, which model year should I buy in order to avoid the overheating pro

  12. I know what you mean.... But I' just curious why do you need to use the front brake and throttle at the SAME time. If you want to reduce speed when entering curve road and to avoid the bike dipping forward, apply REAR brakes and still open throttle a bit, then after cornering just release rear brake and the bike will accelerate..... For low speed balancing (lane splitting) also the same, apply rear brake and a bit of throttle and your bike will be stable. Please tell us why do you need to use the front brake AND throttle at the SAME time. Side track a bit.... I am very amazed
  13. At first look, I was impressed by the new Goldwing 2018. But after a while, I think I still prefer the old model, Goldwing GL1800 2017, my reasons:- 1) The old model is bigger, heavier, I feel it commands a better road presence than the new Wing, I feel it is more eloquent, 2) The old model has its engine covered by tupperware, the new model has parts of its engine exposed, though the new model looks more modern and aggressive, I prefer the old one which look more refined, 3) The new model has sharper outline and contour, the old one has smoother and curvier outline which I prefer,
  14. Not arrived yet leh, I went that day but still the 2017 model on display, asked the sales rep, he said only when the old model is sold out then BS will bring in the new model.....
