  1. Short Answer : Yes, you can buy aka pay for the bike first. But the ownership and insurance will only be to your loved one or love one. You cannot own a bike before getting a license. TLDR: Buying a used bike, you can do a "Layup" with the bike shop meaning the bike would be parked in the shop and cannot be used on the road until its removed from that status which is when he gets his license. So this bike is like showpiece at this moment. Bad thing about this is while the bike is on layup status the COE is still running. so if he doesn't pass soon the clock will keep ticking.
  2. Looking at the road and the sign, it just doesn't make much sense thou. At such a small junction, why only vehicles >= 2500kg (7 seats fully loaded? up to 3000kg? Lorry,truck,bus, and trailers) can turn? From the amount of cars coming doesn't look like a loading/unloading road which is purely made for commercial use. Anyone has any idea why?
  3. While I agree 2A is more than adequate for our roads eg CB400 was already like enough back when i had it... Its more for like a "dream" to ride a vrroom bike while the wife can pillion type so a class 2 is something I want to have at this point of time. Bigger bikes also have more heat to deal with usually... the dilemmas hahaha
  4. do more revisions to kill the waiting time hahaa... I remember i went almost everyday just before the test date just to get me to be very familiar with more bikes before the test. have a few numbers you're familiar with so the clutch, throttle and engine doesn't throw u off on the actual test. Good luck!!
  5. haha... still its super scary... I didn't upgrade to a higher CC bike back then just because i know confirm will accidently accelerate too much when overtaking some cars in the xpress way. vrooooom
  6. yeah no need to put P plate for 2A and 2. Unless its class 4 or 5 which is a new class. But yes... 12 points only. I couldn't believe my ears so I asked alot of people and even verified with the examiner there. So it is confirmed. Once you get your 2A or 2 you have 12 points only for a year. Very scary hahaha accidently go past 1 red light and its over
  7. hahaha i also uncle class liao... back cannot tahan... but did u see the R6... wah too sleek liao... cannot tahan hahaaa but in singapore ride that ... i think my pocket also cannot tahan the summons... hahaa
  8. why do i feel like i know you... Does Weapons sound familiar? sweet bike too!

    I think mineral would be good? Castrol makes some really good mineral oil. Don't use oils that are too thin here in singapore. It heats up easier if its thinner. maybe do 10W40 type rather than 5w30. changing oil every 5k would be a good investment for an older bike too. Singapore doesn't get that cold enough for it to freeze so a 10w is still really safe.
  10. wah steaddy!! haha okok. that's an achievement alright! how did u manage it i'm still amazed. Did u do it alone or with friends? Riding in singapore if can't cut the traffic then its a little counter intuitive. I guess with the FJR vs the comfort of the car... yeah maybe car. Plus the cost is almost a budget car. Maybe a 400-600cc bike here in singapore would be a better choice. I just don't wanna be riding a CB400 again. I mean its an amazing bike. I just wanted to try something more fun hahaa... and yet still can pillion.. Else i'll get the R6 muahahhaa!
  11. Thanks for sharing your insights!! I've always heard that the NC were very convenient and suitable for singapore road without knowing why. It has a front storage??? How does that work? I don't see any space for it. How is the Tracer's handling compared to it thou? I've read some pretty worrying stuff online about the tracer having wobble and issues at speeds up to 180km... which i prob won't experience in singapore. But i've seen the wobble happen at 50km on some youtube videos. So its making me think about it more too.
  12. what?~?~?~ on a 2B???? how did u survive it??? share how you do it??? lmao~~~ my back feels like breaking after we rode up to malacca on the revo hahaaa.... maybe i'm just getting old.... hahaa I was considering the FJR 1300 but then that's a really huge bike to manage on Singapore roads. Very hard to share lanes with that bike imo so i dropped the idea.
  13. Its actually alot easier at class 2A and class 2. Frankly i think the sooner you do it the better because you can still remember all the "checks" and haven't developed weird habits yet hahaa... Also everytime you get a "new" license say 2A ... your Class 3 points drops to 12 points as well... so yeah you wanna get it out of the way asap hahaha...

    I remember using iphon oil last time... Depending on the age of your bike Mineral/Semi/Fully synthetic makes a difference. New bikes, go fully syn, and the older it gets drop down the type because it will help with the lubrication as well as the oil change cycle.
