As proven by riders, un-responsible drivers which change lane without care won't bother. During daytime, riders are huge enough to be seen.

Yes there are a lot of "bo chup" drivers around. But for us riders, we must first do our part in exercising safety measures.

 

Turning on headlight is definately one of them. There a huge difference in switching on and not switching on the headlight during daytime. Regardless whether one is riding a GL1800 or a wave.

switching on the headlights do make a difference. sometimes from my mirror, if i happen to see a light coming from far, i noe there's a bike behind, at least i'll b more alert n not b startled when it zoom past me. n also it helps me to keep to my path n not block the biker behind me.

 

i do hope all bikers abide to the laws here, that is to switch on the headlight at all times. changing ur batt dun cost much, safety is priceless.

Philosophy A: Ignore what everyone else thinks. Riding is a better way to get around. Ride paranoid and keep your skills sharp

 

Philosophy B: Ride with somebody who's better than you. You will pick up a handy trick or new skill just about every time you are out

 

Philosophy C: You don't need a big bike to prove ur passion for riding

Not sure my bike XLR200 is considered older gen but I have the on/off switch as well as the high/low beam.....

 

Switching on headlight is mandatory. Also allow the rider in front to see from mirror that u are approaching.

So far, my 3 year old bike change batt once.

 

Ride safely.

why are we in this world?

what is our purpose in life?

how are we suppose to get enlightment?

when will we know the truth?

who am i?

I can't seem to find any info in onemotoring website that says motorcycles need to have headlights on when riding, even though we know that there is indeed such law. Anyone know where to find the info? :confused:

 

My X9 scoot has 2 switch position for the headlights (apart from high/low beam switch): one for the small headlights and the other for the normal headlights. If I just use the small headlights during the day, is this OK with the TP? Or must use the normal headlights? :confused:

Riders' passion is to ride.

 

Its NOT from point A to point B that a rider enjoy,

its DURING point A to point B that he enjoy..

I dont understand the rational of offing our light on our road, I really dont understand some of the riders are thinking?

Riding not dangerous enough? HAving someone notice u on the rd is safer.

Batt and wat ever tear and wear? Then u dont ride a bike, when u ride tires,brakes and many things tear and wear.

Or money too much?

Earn too much and fines mean nothing to u?

I really dont know wat are some of the riders brain are thinking? Or they have none at all?

Hachi is right. anyway, while running your charger will keep the lights going so wont drain your battery.

 

good to stay as visible as possible without being a nuisance.

 

some bikes have their headlights angled too high up and the light is blinding motorists in front, that's quite sickening. :nono:

ANd I dont think because of headlight will kill ur rect and batt, just that some items do tear and wear.Dont tell mi bike manufactuer design bikes for decades still have this problem.

And funny things is some of bikers actually believe in that. Unless can prove it to mi without headlight ur rect and batt can last forever.

ANd their mech give them crap reason they actually believe it?

 

AI ya those who buang before know that the rd is harder than they think. TO make urself more safety I guess is priceless.

Is that a fact or just an assumption? :?

Its a fact created by people who need to justify inaccuracies with facts so they can factually point out to the facts when in fact its not really a fact.

and on being factual, at least some people present facts that are in fact, factual facts.
