[Trip Report] 25 year old TZR 125 solo HatYai trip!

Hi Guys,

 

Sharing my trip report on my Yamaha TZR 125cc solo trip.

 

I brought a FF plate 2RK TZR 125cc with faring mount on 1st April the ex-owner had done a good job maintenance the bike. I miss this bike and is the very first bike I use to own 16 years ago back then I had a dream riding it to Thailand but due to unforeseen circumstances I only manage to do it now. As I previously had 3 time experience travel to Betong on 4 stroke bike solo and hope this time it will benefit a smooth ride. This is my first time riding a 2 stroke bike to HatYai.

 

Challenge I face expect the unexpected.

The TZR is 25 year old.

2 stroke engine fuel and 2T consumption.

Constant riding on 2 stroke engine over heating issue.

Riding and sitting position rather discomfort.

Noise TZR is a loud bike. haha

 

Before the ride I change back to Yamaha TZR suspension! Cost me a boom!

This cooler solve my TZR heating issue the heat meter never go 50%!

The fuel price compare to Malaysia is terrible normal 95 SGD$1.65/1L

Fuel price increase=inflation!

I pump Vpower 95 @ SGD1.85/1L and only able to match our local fuel 98...
