There is another poll in "Female Riders" section where it is questioned whether people (women in general) prefer cars to bikes......

 

I think the answer is obvious but is it really true that the general opinion is that bikers are poorer and people prefer to ride in cars because they see it as a more prestigious mode of transport????

 

Most claim that it is more dangerous.... but is it??? I have heard about the Safiras crashing into railings (along the NS Highway) and the occupants end up outside on the railings....dead.......

 

I believe it is all about the rider, and of course, faith..... Although I agree that bikers are more exposed, it is not necessarily more dangerous.....

 

yeah riders are not poorer

its jus more economical

can afford doesnt mean i cant save for a better retirement plan

ppl who drive pls be considerate to riders

spread e msg~!

Myself i own a Mitsubishi Lancer EX. Recently i bought myself a CBR1000RRR cause i felt that i deserve something nice. usually i will ride to work, and leave my car at home for weekend. I mean if you're finance ok, Why not own both.

i dont mean you so plse dont get offended.

but the problem is many people "think" their finances are ok...

$5k - $10k per mth salary in singapore nowadays is really no big deal at all.

I rode to work and drive during weekends for family outings.... for me, the OPC is ideal... pity the cost of COE makes the scheme not worthwhile...

Going somewhere isn't why I ride... riding is why I go..

Past rides: XL100, CG110, Elsinore 125, CB175, CB250N, CX500, CBX400F, GL1000, CBX-6,

V45 Magna.

Present ride: DN-01, Spyder RT LTD

I ride to work. sometimes at weekend i drive if my parents not using car. If car COE drop i will consider buy a car for weekend. since it is just too jam to drink car on weekdays, I rather ride take half the time. weekend I need to travel in afternoon which is very hot for riding.

Hmmm... strange that the term "Got more than a car?" isn't common in asia...

 

In most countries, having a bike is like having a rich man's toy :) I guess only in singapore because of all the high lease price (COE) you'll think bike riders are poor people...

 

Anyway... we're all just renting cars/bikes from the gov. none of us are really owners... 10 years rental.

 

But riding is definitely more fun :) even when it rains :) get one with an ABS system and you'll know what i mean :) hee hee

when i converse with people, i realise that those who cant really afford it say that they are merely renting from the govt. These seem to be the ones who take huge loans and stretch long tenures to buy their cars.

 

Those who have money, somehow never see it that way.

 

Just my observation
