Hi Guys,

 

Nah.. im cool :shades: about this like what you guys have agreed, these are adv bikes and we are in the same category, but just wanna know what had actually insipred adk21 to say that. I am open to comments and stuff, but of coz everything said must have a reason behind it. We cant just go around :gun: blanks right?

Hi Guys,

 

Hmm :cry: :argue::cool: :makeup: :smooch:

Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and begin all over again.

I agree with you Varas - our bike is really a beauty... actually the reason I got it is that I think it looks BRUTAL... wanted a tough, non-compromizing machine and the Vara sure is IT!

 

Guess we should have a meeting to prepare for the club and then the next one would be kind of a 'founding' meeting...?

 

Btw, nowadays I tend to go over 2nd link to gas up every Friday around 4.30 pm - just in case anyone of you care to join me one of these days.

Btw ad2ki join us at pit stop man.Wanna see see ur FI

 

ad2ki>If the box is JUNIOR ,the price quoted still got room for bargain.But 40l to move in Sgp is hell man, the bike's width is the same as a subaru vivio. I was following my fren from the back and just right infront is a vivio.His bike covered the whole car.hehheee:sweat:

 

but if u decided to take off ur top box and use just the side panniers , the bike is GARANG man.

 

:lovestruck:

 

Kenny> Dun u think the fairing makes the bike looks like a lion head from the side.

hehhee.

Gs is nicely designed ,but $ is also "nicely priced" . hahahaa

Will see if I can make it Wednesday, will probably not know untill tomorrow, but will try. Did you guys say 8 pm?

 

I only able to make it over to M'sia to gas up once a week and try to make it on Fridays after work - when I head over at 4.30 it is just before the crowd - usually there is no jam in either direction. Usually I am over and back within an hour.

 

Btw, I have the 40L H&B boxes fitted on my bike - although have left them off the last few weeks. Great when going for touring, but must take it easy in traffic - must be patient.

 

varas> i havn't fitted the crashbar yet, havn't had the time to go down yet. Was actually planning to have a look at the sw motech one as I like the way it looks on the bike. Think the fivestar a bit more than I am willing to pay.

riddick> never heard of any recall .. hmm .Mine also 2002 model; even there is a recall , I dun think Sgp varaderos are eligible. All parallel import, not by Boon Siew. The warrenty program here sucks man.

Anyway hope to cya tonite dude.

 

 

ad2k1> "that coffee shop " we r talking abt is really nice and cosy. Just that its for fine indian food dinning.:sian: hahhaaa

anyway if u r trying to see how 5 stars,motech..etc looked like on dero, try this

crashbars

try to go to http://www.sw-motech.de to check out sw-motech

 

also search for Jfmotorsports in the search engine. may find 5 stars inside their web page.

 

Simcerboy> Sounds good to meet up at 1 common place before going, reduce risks of holland.

So today "pak- u" still on? I would reach petronas abt 1700 hrs :smile:

Ok, guys. Confirmed I will join u guys tonight. Should be at pitstop around 8 pm.

 

Varas, btw - my vara is also 2002 - no parallell import, I bot it second hand but called Boon Siew and they confirmed that it is one of "theirs".

 

riddick> i also heard something about recall before, but do you know what it is about? Maybe I should contact Boon Siew and check...

 

Got the attached pic of the fivestars from a website, but can't see very well, seems pricey to me. Motoworld have a model with and without mash (for headlight protection) but did not look very good to me, also don remember the brand - not one that has been mentioned here tough I think.

 

See you guys tonight!

Hey man, I am staying quite close to the MRT - close to the secondary school there along cck nth 7. Don rem seeing another vara around the area v often... what color is yours so I can look out for you... mine is black.

 

Not sure about the price for the H&B panniers. I bot my vara when it was about 14 mths old and the bags came with it. Think the seller told me it was ard $800 though - but he got lobang 'staff price'. I really like the pack space it gives, even though it makes the bike a bit wide. Being able to take it off is a must though - very flexible like that!
