  1. May we wish you the turn for the better with regards to luck. I'll try to make it as layman as possible. Things to consider: 1. The vehicle's dashcam may have recorded your license plate 2. Incidents like these (or even minor / major accidents) usually would get raised to his/her insurance. You ought to have raise this with your insurance as well - your insurer will try to be understanding, just tell them what went wrong. 3. But expect your next year insurance to go up (if the car driver decides he doesn't want to forgive and foot the repair bill and raises this with his insurer >
  2. I was from the period of time years ago where bikes and bikers were many, many gave positive reviews about the Honda Super 4. It's a reliable workhorse and many shops can do efficient maintenance on it. Great for short distances and even long ones up to Malaysia. It's not a strong necessity in my opinion, but is a good plus. Or if you're itching to try something with slightly more power then yeah, if you'd like. All depends on the individual. But one thing is probably evident, it takes harder effort for bikes with smaller brake horsepower (BHP) to keep up with traffic. It's not abou
  3. Bikers being foodies as well, got another good excuse to ride down to McDonald's liao! - Curry Sauce bottle @ $5.50 (with Value Meal purchase) - Spicy McNuggets - Passionfruit pie - Peach McFizz (kinda like sprite with peach syrup added)
  4. Mazda USA has filed an issue report about this matter to the USA authorities. The AI computer in some cars making it e-brake even though there's no obstacles. Link: https://insidemazda.mazdausa.com/press-release/statement-on-recall-of-certain-2019-2020-my-mazda3-vehicles/ Wonder if our right hand drive ones have seen such issues too here

  6. I gotto ask my seniors about this, but for me over the years I've been asking around and learning about the shops Watcha have in mind? Bukit Merah (the Ikea vicinity), Upper. Changi, Ubi Road 1, some of the handful shops you can explore.
  7. Earlier on I posted news lamenting the rumored retirement of the Hayabusa, well someone else has posted rumors Suzuki making effort to resurrect the mighty 'busa. TLDR Takeaways: Engine size increase to 1440cc, to make it Euro5 smoke compliant 2 smokin' exhaust endcans, as before Going to be slimmed down however Link: Visordown.com, Hayabusa to get Euro 5 certified I betcha its gonna come with a high tech digital cockpit as well, in line with the new bikes in the market. Hope this is real!
  8. Might be good to list down what "requirements" or maybe skills that the prospective mechanic should have. Or maybe you're hiring someone inspiring to be a bike-chanic Good luck pal
  9. Starting December 16 2019, all trainees pursuing / upgrading their driving or riding licence will have to undergo an additional Simulator set of modules. More modules to book! Link: http://bit.ly/2s1ySbC
  10. Bye bye 'busa, Suzuki to end production of one of world's fastest bikes Takeaways: 1. Dwindling sales 2. Strict emission regulations. Countries hate polluty, smoky bikes like the 11 year old' busa. 3. Sportbikes like Kawasaki H2 can now do 0-60 the same way as the haya does https://gearpatrol.com/2018/12/12/suzuki-hayabusa-ending-production/ Seems like we're the last ones standing, owning a legendary piece of history.... Sigh
  11. Get your bike repaired. Electrical system (battery + rectifier) either one is faulty. That, or the spark plug is old and fouled up. There's no fuel to begin with, so no combustion, no movement, no wear and tear damage to be worried about.
  12. Hey all, long hiatus from riding and Foruming but happy to be back to do both. Help us report any spam or trash (there's a button for that) and we'll clean it up. As always, enjoy your stay in SBF. Oh and if you *ever* have any tech or geek questions - and you feel not comfy asking elsewhere - ask away here. There's biker bros that are in the IT field like us, or very avid nerds or hobbyists that probably will help. I'll ensure you'll get your questions answered here if there's no help in sight.

  16. Hey there iOS is *kinda* like the shrunken version of Mac OS X (fact) But of course, can't run Mac apps on an iPhone & vice-versa...that one a bit different already.
  17. Bro, RAID lets you take 2 or more disks for redundancy. Layman's terms, when one disk becomes partially corrupted/entire disk fails, the lost data can be reconstructed from the other working disks. There's no disk defragmentation on Disk Utility bro, heh
  18. Sn0w_MaN, if you have contacted me 1 year ago when I was actively doing occasional touring, I would have joined you now. Sori ah, sis
  19. If you do, I'm pretty sure your 2nd wife will get the same exclusive treatment, just like your current one. Aei, got enrol your first one in a beauty pageant or not?
  20. I don't really understand what's the deal with these kinds of threads. First, there's the usual explanation that so-and-so biker(s) on some-small-bike(s) rode too close to one's bike and began to blow/lap/rev/make-noise, thereby lowering one's dignity to the point where one would think him/herself is rendered a useless human being. Then, there's payback remediation: that the defeated one would rev blow/lap/rev/make-noise back at the perpetrator(s), presumably to show that him/herself is an invincible human being on a bike and that nobody should intimidate him/her. Adrenaline for adre

  22. Proarm was invented to allow easier wheel removal (pull it out to the side), especially if the bike is used for racing. Moreover, I think it's more of a design constraint. These might be the reasons why the parts have to be placed one side of the bike.
  23. I was quoted $200 from K&T. Give them some time if you're planning to do it; when I sent my bike in, I left it there for 2 days ... I wanted them to do everything on their time and to do it sui sui
