Had a really spritely bike yesterday, says the unskilled rider and for some reason (and for the first time ever) I actually fell with the bike. 

usually it's a matter of letting the bike drop (which also happened 😂) but the epic one was when I was trying to slow down on the plank, I ended up flying over the kerb and tyres, landing on the grass patch. Boggles my mind what happened. 😅

thankfully there was a lesson 4 taking place and an instructor was on hand to help me start the bike again after the engine was flooded (yet again). 

no big injury, thank God. Just a bruised palm and aching forearm.... and achy upper back (whiplash-like?) 😂 don't think I was fast enough for an actual whiplash.

Unsurprisingly, I've cancelled my lesson 5 for next Wednesday 😂 I realise I don't want to be tested at night. The indicator lights (three small lights to show the testers what you're using) are just too bright 😝

Skipped chicken but still coughing...

Sounds like the Duke is a nice height... tempted.. LOL

Yea.. no mask, because in my line of work, what we say is important to be captured in recording..

Hope you are ok and glad it's just a minor bruise and aching forearm. Don't get disheartened and these things do happen.

I've not tried night lessons before due to work and by the time I end, it's quite late. I used to envision learning at night but I know it won't gel well with my schedule.
The indicator lights are for the instructor to see if we are "riding the rear brakes" or even applying the brakes at all... LOL :D

Most important thing is that you are fine and keep on going!

Night ride is nicer I guess but sometimes am more aware that cars might not see bikes so well....

The maintenance is high?

No choice on the recording, and also, with the mask, really uncomfortable... I worked 2 years with the damn mask on! LOL Yup, I'm in a line where WIO is the norm. Can WFH, but I think will have heart issues.

Waaa.. flying.. you be careful bah.. sounded serious but glad nothing happened.. rest well.. sometimes body need a period of time to recover from shock.. 

My longest duration was about 2 weeks-4 weeks.. so rest well..

Questions for Mr. @Nakuru on the Duke 200 "D200"

What's the best thing about the D200?

What's the worst thing about the D200?

The D200 is known for its legendary torque... true?

How much is the average servicing cost of the D200?

Is the D200 reliable in your opinion?

How is the ride height for yourself as a rider and how tall are you?

 

Hmm... 

What's the best thing about the D200?

I guess it is the amount of mods you can do, and also being one of the most powerful 2B bikes

What's the worst thing about the D200?

I will have to say.... Fuel economy. Having such a small tank(9L) I am filling it up more often.

The D200 is known for its legendary torque... true?

Yeah, it has quite a torque but also all the weight. TBH the bike chassis feels like it is more suited for the 390's power.

How much is the average servicing cost of the D200?

I only did the minor stuff but yeah euro bike cost. (Even thou it is indian)

Is the D200 reliable in your opinion?

Yes, I was quite fearful at what I read online about the D200 issues. But honestly, it is waaaaay more reliable than what I expect.

How is the ride height for yourself as a rider and how tall are you?

Ride height is just right, me being 178-180.

.

There are certain things about the D200 to take note off, the chassis kind of has a problem with heavy backbox. They tend to crack. So, try not to put metal box and also ensure the bolt points on the chassis is reinforced.

Mr Nakuru.

Thanks for replying and your insight.

1. I guess if I do get a duke... won't be modifying.

2. Fuel economy is not much of a concern as this would be joy-riding...

3. It's good that the torque isn't too much as I'm a n00b.. so don't want to get ahead of oneself even if the time comes to be granted the privilege to ride on the road

4. I hope it won't cost as much as my bill today; just send in my ride (not bike) for servicing... 😅 haven't collect the ride back yet.. but I roughly know the cost

5. Yes, I am quite apprehensive about reliability, as I like to start and go sort of person.

6. Ok, we are approximately the same height.. but I'm way fatter.

7. That's why I am appreciative of your sharing and replies.. if.. and it's a big if... as COE prices are just mind-boggling... I don't think I'll have a box on a bike... I'll just buy a really nice riding waterproof bag to dump stuff in.

8. Did you really own a Bajaj Pulsar before? I can tell you like to max out the license category.. I am assuming it was 200CC as well? :D

Happy you replied @sameoldshitz :D

Yeah I did owned a Bajaj Ns200 B4. Not really intending to maxed out the cc limit but... I just ended with them 200cc. Previously I was thinking of getting a R15 or RS4 125, since I m more keen on a sports bike. But my back says otherwise🤣. So a street style bike it is.

hi, how would you compare the NS200 vs the Duke 200? 

i've had some seat time on the Duke but not the NS200. Might wanna rent one if i can find one. I saw an RS200 in good condition but it's not the style i want.

i just got back from a drive (sorry, 4 wheels) to South Thai. Excellent weather most of the time, but i heard it was raining a lot in SG and wondered how you're getting on with the lessons. 

this is the western face of Cameron Highlands

saw this cute Honda CT125 in Hatyai (and another in Songkhla old town) Seems they are bought to be used as store displays

They... are like cousins? How do I put this?

Ever get compared by your aunties or uncles, about how well your cousin is doing and comparing to how you are doing??? Something like that. 🤣 

.

The duke feels lighter. But the NS200 is like trying to improve on it, like having 3 sparkplugs, a proper main stand, bigger fuel tank, trying to be better but really.... you just want to give the.. "Orh, good for you" reply. 😁
