I don't think I will buy a bike so soon.. I want to see how I can really handle the vehicle or not.. I mean, riding is really being able to survive the roads...
(Don't laugh but I've a penchant for scooters) Though I like bikes...

*sorry for late reply as work was really busy and ironically, on a Friday, where most are out. I'm just chilling behind my screen... LOL

 

if you ride safe and check all your blind spot and stay away from big vehicles... you'll be alright. 

Don't lane split at higher speed too. That's usually why people get into accidents. Following too close to vehicles especially those big trucks is a bad idea. Their braking power is like 10 times better than our bikes because their tire base is 10 times wider hahaha with huge brake disk...

Spoken like a true experienced rider...

The question I want to ask all experience riders is...
"When checking blind spots, how do you ensure the vehicle in front don't pull a jammy while I turn my head?"
As a driver, I get some of these things..

I intend to ride till old.. As much as I like excitement; I've seen some really gory images to remind me how vulnerable the human anatomy is.

Thank you very much and appreciate inputs from experience riders. No need tricks; need tips to survive

Definitely not an experienced rider here but same applies to drivers too. Always keep a safety distance.. use ur side mirror to check for the vehicles and gauge the distance b4 switching lanes too. N always try to predict what other drivers are gonna do especially those that doesnt use their signals.

Appreciate your insights on the blind checks and yes, for riding.... if I get a street bike... I reckon I need Alpine Stars boots to ride a manual... I'm a pen pusher... or a "keyboard warrior" so... I'm not sure how's that gonna pan out on the shoes... hahahah

The white shirts will turn grey or what ever the elements throw at it when riding a bike... scooter seems more... corporate.. oh well... I dunno... :D

Hahaha actually u dun need to think so far ahead. There is still at least 6 mths till u get ur license.. so when u pass ur lesson 5 then u slowly thing wat u wanna get. Just dun be like mi butt itchy lesson 1 only go carousell scroll n buy a bike. Now i can only go to the carpark n stare at it 😂😂

If u wanna ride a street bike n still wear corporate shirt, u can juz get a box n put any additional gears into the box lor.. shoes can put in office oso.. if not just go office change lor.. i got a colleague wear shirt and pants ride his harley davison to office also.. haha

So fierce! 😅 (I'm kidding there, no offense please)

Yes, wanted it since young, but honestly speaking, if I had it if I was eighteen, I really won't be here in this forum.

No, not looking to be like Mr. Cruise of Topgun fame who flies Planes, Helicopters (choppers for yanks.. hey wait... choppers are bikes :D ) and ride (read races..) bikes. 
.... but ya... talk only!!! Nakuru-san.. straight to the point! Hahah, you must be doing front line work! (i.e client facing)


 

On the "box"... damn Uncle.. I already look like one... no need to stamp and affirm ... :D

Now I'm waiting for the correct time slot!!! 😂 I'm obsessive okay... every few hours will check for time slot. 

Cos the first lesson we also wanna do eye check and then my hb dun wanna take leave for this so... have to aim for the first two slots on a Saturday. Wait long long long 😂 after that I'll just need to book the 8:40pm sessions, higher chance.

Just the first lesson cos need eye check. If not have to book separate Appt for eye sight check and a few days ago, the timing was like middle July!

subsequent lessons we'll book the last slot of the day, almost any day... last slot can already. I wish they'll release more slots at one time or like say how many available slots per timing left. 
 

You're right lor, trying to book the same slot, I also dunno can or not. When there is, I'll just use two machines to book at the same time 😂 see can or not. The App also stupid lah, cos I can't use it until I do the eye sight check. 😵💫 so now every time have to key in catcha code.

I thought theory do online? Only need to go down for the test? Internal evaluation is online or must go down also? 😅

we've both been driving since we were 18... like we just told our children we've been driving more than we've not been driving 😂 so old ("boomer!")

I figure the riding theory test (which lasts 1 yr) maybe I wait until lesson 4/5 of practical then do 😂 who knows I might take 1 yr to get there wait RTT expire liao 😂

for the eye sight test, my hb needs to take leave so... might as well coincide with the orientation. At least with that, don't need to book a "eye test" Appt as well! So many Appts 😂they must think we very free. Thankfully we're just doing it as hobby. So can take own sweet time.... when I finally start I'll let u know 😂I stalk the website first.  I'm sure at some point in the next two months I'll get something. Maybe now busier cos the uni kids haven't started school 😂
