I know this poll has probably been done before but can I find out how many people in Singaporebikes.com ride and/or drive....

 

Maybe we can have a Singaporebikes 'car' outing......

hopefully, you will enjoy it more.....

 

It is a really enjoyable hobby..... and commuting on it is not bad either.... just a bugger when it rains......

Well, there are two kinds of riding, just as there are, two kinds of driving.... for work and for leisure......

 

Riding is more fun.... open and free.... no hassles when the jam starts.... and cornering, well, is just plain fun......

 

Driving on the other hand is primarily for transport, unless you drive a performance car like a 911 or 360.....or 575....... and even then, (in Singapore anyway) its for (not very comfortable) transport.

 

What I do detest are people who 'prefer' cars to bikes.... especially women who would only ride in cars..... sure, some of them have valid excuses but the majority I've met come up with lame excuses.... and the most common one being, ITS DANGEROUS........

 

Sure, its not as safe as being in a car, and the hassle of carrying a helmet is a bugger, but hey, its 'free' transport.... what are you complaining......

 

I find some of these people too materialistic..... I have some friends like that and when I meet them, I usually ride there....just to prove a point.... that I rode to the last meeting, and I ride to this meeting.... and I am STILL HERE.......

 

What are your thoughts on people wanting to or prefering to sit in cars????

Well, all of us need to get around.... and I suppose if it aids procreation, then why not..... but personally I use it to get around......

sometimes, my friends whom I tompang will complain about the heat lah, how dangerous when I squeeze traffic lah. So hor, i think it is quite normal for people to want to sit in a car instead of a bike. For the comfort and safety mah. But if it is a person who thinks that riding a bike is something of a lower class or a bike just cannot satisfy that person's materialistic instinct, then can ask that person go and die.

 

For me, I dun really have preference. Coz when I ride a bike, I can go anywhere I want, w/o having to ask other people for a lift or what.

theres the joys of driving too n the joys of riding too.

both bring different kind of adrenalin n both expect different kinds of skill control.

i think riding has a greater adrenalin rush, but i find driving a real challenge. when i say this what i mean is driving not as in the normal road driving but the cheong siao kind of pattern.

anyway, logic logic logic, lets be practical...hmm....my personal opinion,

i love it when i drive when it suddenly rains, i love it when i ride when i see a traffic jam. :p

 

as for that part on gers being choosy.

yeah, i frown on that. and i do keep a distance from them. condemn !

similarly, there r gers who look out for powerful n beautiful bikes.

u get wat i mean ? be it their interest in car or bike, if they r materialistic, they would be choosing either a nice bike or a nice car.

lets face it, this world is getting more evil..... if u cant beat it, join it.... :bounce: :D :D :D :bounce:

driving is a transport to me ... riding is the real stuff ...

but when i need to buy stuffs or going shopping with gf , i prefer to drive cos have boot to put the stuff in . anyway for bike it dangerous to ask the pillion to carry lots of things behind , might lose balance and block up the rear view.

Buddy greg how are you these days ... today i sick so on MC and at home hehehe

In the past is drive more then nv ride.

Now is ride and seldom drive. Cos riding more thrilling. U don have to go fast to get the thrill but cornering etc will make u satisfy also. I used to drive a lot becos back then my family forbide me to learn bike but i think that riding is a youth thing (no offence to senior riders) so i got on to learn my class 2b. ( i don 1 30+ already still carry p plate) :smile:

 

Now i'm riding a small bike without my family knowing. Hai... very hard for me. Bring helmet home also like stealing things.
