You're a safe rider! 😊 i usually have bikers lane spilt on the PIE 😂 but a lot of them from JB lah. 

i will also siam the drivers who come very fast from behind... 😂 I'm already going 90-100 and they wanna go  faster... better let them go. 

Yeah. Just apply all the knowledge you have as a driver and you are the best type of rider. I drive and ride daily so it’s good practice really. When I drive, I know where to spot riders and why they behave a certain way. And during jams it really helps to “clear the jam” by letting bikes through. Imagine every bike takes up half a vehicle length because they can’t lane split? It will become a bigger traffic issue. 
we’re not like America where land is ample… we need to understand and share the roads. Even their bigger cities like California allows for lane splitting because it makes sense to do it for the bikes 😄😄
 

Btw the bikes license there is straight class 2 😂😂. And it’s pretty easy to obtain their license. Unlike our system. Which does make everyone a better driver here.

ah RTT not challenging la.. the highway code u should already know ma.. then the RTT is just basic maintenance for the bike.. like clutch and brake free play how much.. chain slack how much.. which gear to be on.. the rest is the same as BTT..

took mi 6 months.. went for lesson once every week.. 

nope, they dun teach lane splitting.. but they teach plank n slalom to make sure u noe how to control the bike.. hahaha

BTT is permanent so since u already have driving license, u dun need to retake BTT.. since u dunno when you will finish ur lesson, it is actually better to take RTT when u're at lesson 4 or lesson 5 cos RTT only last for 1 year.. nv manage to get any other lessons ah? or you haven finish the full enrolment yet? 

Like Jane, our BTT was light years away, so can't be complacent.. hahaha :D Must still put in study time.

6 months is really great and you should be proud of yourself; today I just saw a "P" who nearly topple, still use mobile phone at traffic light.... 😑

For BBDC, must finish all the theory before can begin practical lessons (not like before I think) and after lesson 3-4 practical (thereabouts), can take RTT...

I think Nakura posted some links online, but yes, I understand the frustration. BBDC conducts the theory lesson , but does not guarantee passing.. 😅

Today; read the "Practical Riding Handbook" (Something like that as I'm on my lappy now) on the desktop and it wasn't as fun as I would like it to be but good read nonetheless... Have you started on the practical yet? 

 

Speak of vehicles; just had an alert to change brake pads on the ride... and speaking of two wheels... looking to buy a bicycle.. .since no license yet... hahahha

Suddenly it occured to me….what shoes do you (esp females) wear for your practical lessons? 😂

will the shoe get dirty from the lesson (from changing gear)? 😂😂😂

I wore the running shoes from skechers.. 1 with a thicker soles to help woth my height issue and a thicker front so that it i dun feel much kicking up the gear.. n surely will get dirty especially if it rains.. haha

Yeah… all they need is a theory test… and we ask why is there so many accidents… 😱😵💫😵💫😵💫. Every country has a different driving license passing criteria… making go TP? Well TP will say no capacity. If they do it, I think our local population will take 5 years to get a class 3 license 😂😂😂

no solution to this problem… so take the “lesser” evil lo. Accident then say lo. Give all P plate. 
I just had one did a U-Turn at the entrance to a carpark… I was on the right lane of a 2 lane street, the lorry was on the left side of the road and did a left filter… but something felt off so I slowed down… before I knew it he’s swung back and did a U turn… with my bonnet just barely inches away … welcome to no gov driving … 😵💫

Need to “sticky” this for all newbies… :) on the BTT…

The bicycle is motivation to be on a 2 wheeler…

I’m motivated and keep staring at bikes… :D when I’m running and when I’m walking through the parking lots… how many Ks have you done on the msx?

LOL.. depends on what you seek for..

for me is the feeling of freedom and how tiny you are compared to the world..  (for rides to Thailand)

Yes, will try the practical and would love to join all the rest of the bikers on the road. Yea, I feel for bikers who do “lane split” as I think it’s unique in Malaysia and Singapore in a way… :D 
 

Thank you and will do it slow.. slow is smooth.. smooth is fast.. :D 

 

I think overseas also lane split.. some even worse.. that's why their accident rate wayyyyyy higher...

Slow is not really smooth.. 

Smooth is not really fast.. haha...

how long did it take you to get your 2B?

I bought my guards from LAB.... $20 per set.

Do they teach lane splitting?

My 2B about 3-4 months.. I went weekly once I started.. 

good pricing for the guards..

no teaching of lane splitting but.. crack course is to teach you how to ride pass 2 vehicle from one side to another..

yup.. I have Class 3 and 2A.. So when you have Cl3, often wun see anything from bike's POV.. but once you have both license.. you will realised, driving is alot more tiring then biking..

Yes.. bike license is CL2... but sadly our side is slowly go up de..

agreed.. just go for practical lesson.. this is more motivating.. haha.. Bicycle = a way to work out.. not really to build motivation for motorcycles... 

Ohhh.. if he's referring to pricing.. let me check my app... loading....

 

servicing or accessories - 3k++ 

fuel 1.2k for 1 year ++... despite I ride alternate days.. haha...weekend = no ride...

 

I didn't check back.. hahahaha.. but price wise above.. mileage on this bike about 15-20k for 1 year? sounds reasonable ba... haha...

driving is to get out of difficult parking slots.. and inside carpark turn left turn right...

bike so small no need so tight spaces.. so it's for squeezing from one lane to another while red light.. whahahhahahhaha... (that's the "theory" we had from the past) figure 8 is for you to learn how to corner better.. last time we are allowed to go FULL figure 8 a few rounds during training.. haha.. nowadays they dun allow anymore.. (Last time, back in 2000s we are challenged to go a few rounds lor.. I still recalled) hahaha...

ok la.. black ones confirm ok.. wun see any differences..

 

5-6 weeks later... interest grew smaller... hahaha...

That's what I think. Which is why I feel it's so ridiculous. 😑

I wrote to them to tell them then no point having any orientation class without eyesight test, no point delinking it since either way the learner also needs to take leave to do the eyesight test before the learner can start. Meanwhile, the membership is just running down... all that waiting about doing nothing.
