There is no use in friendship with an ungrateful person.

Anger comes as a result of intolerance.

One who can maintain peace of mind is happy.

Happy is he who killed his own anger.

Tips to Have The Most Fun

 

1.COMMON SENSES a commodity we all possess, but may sometimes forget to use. Don't play "cowboys" :nono: and speed everywhere. Specifically do not roar into hill tribe villages, disrupting the quiet village life.

 

2.FF HELMET WITH VISOR :shades: this is a safety device designed to protect that object attached to your neck. Helmets are compulsory; although enforcement is somewhat lenient. Despite this don't go riding up-country without one: you've only got one head, look after it.

Use a visor on your helmet, this protects your face from windburn, dust, stones and those thousands of insects that delight in flying around at night, especially at dusk. Keen motorcyclists are advised to bring their own helmets with them. Rental helmets are never as good or comfortable as your own!

 

3.CLOTHING generally 3 or 4 changes of clothes are sufficient. Plan to spend 2 nights in a town every 4 or 5 days to do laundry; if you run short, jeans & T-shirts are cheap and readily available in KL - buy them as you go? Don't ride with sleeveless shirts, shorts and thongs on; but wear a long sleeved riding jacket, long trousers and good shoes / boots. These protect you against wind and sunburn, insect stings, stones and other debris thrown up off the road, not to mention the road itself, should you make a sudden close encounter of the asphalt / gravel kind. Remember, you're on holidays and want to enjoy them, so look after yourself.

Gloves are recommended for the same reasons; the automatic reaction when you fall off is to put out your hands to cushion your fall.

Riding pants moto-cross style pants are recommended for riding, rather than jeans. These don't show the dirt as much & so stay clean longer. Often you only need one pair, rather than 2 (or 3 pr) of grubby jeans for riding.

Hot season 1 light long sleeved riding jacket, 2 or 3 pr jeans, 1 pr riding boots, 1 pr light weight gloves, T-shirts & short sleeved shirts, shorts and sandals for night wear.

Sun block lotion (SPF 30+) is recommended if you burn easily. The tropical sun might be great for a tan, but it is even better for sunburn and possible sunstroke after a day's ride in the hot sun.

Cold season 1 warm long sleeved riding jacket, 2 or 3 pr jeans, 1 pr riding boots, 1 pr warm gloves, T-shirts, 4 long sleeved shirts, jumper / jacket and shoes for night wear.

Personal toiletries, towel & sun cream. Camera / video / film / batteries.

Rainwear lightweight two-piece waterproof suit, from mid May - November.

Dust mask / scarf available too. Medical kit a small kit for grazes, cuts & burns is also a good idea.

 

 

4.CARRYING LUGGAGE travel light, use a small sports kit bag. All you need are 3 or 4 changes of clothes (see clothing). If you can't get your entire luggage in a small sports kit bag, then you've got too much! Either leave it at home u can buy in KL later!!

 

5.DUSK is the most dangerous time of day to be riding. Be warned, at this time of day there's a lot of roadside traffic travelling at different speeds, often drifting onto the road oblivious to other vehicles.

Night riding is not recommended for two-reason (1) it is dangerous and (2) you miss out on the scenery.

 

 

6.WATER available bottled in most towns. If you’re going off the beaten track and are concerned about not being able to obtain drinking water buy a couple of bottles to take with you. Sponsor a yellow liquid in a small bottle. Marketed as an electrolyte drink, this is no ordinary electrolyte, and definitely gives you a buzz (high sugar and caffeine content?) If you're feeling tired or suffering from the heat, try 2 bottles of Sponsor and a half bottle of water and you'll pick up within 15 minutes. (We reckon the extra buzz increases your top speed by 10-15 kph!) When you are out on the road, riding in the heat, consider drinking a couple of bottles a day to keep alert and riding well. M-Sport is another healthier electrolyte drink if you'd rather not O-D on Sponsor.

Gatorade another (green) electrolyte type drink is also good if you have a hangover. (Tested and approved, sometimes with regularity.) Electrolyte powders sachets are also available at most pharmacies, and are recommended for the hypochondriacs.

 

 

7.MONEY don't carry excessive cash and invite trouble. Keep enough money for each day in your wallet and the rest out of sight. Banks with money exchange and international credit card facilities are widespread in KL. most ATM cash dispensing machines will operate on your own bankcard pin number from home. The most convenient credit card to use is Visa card. -

.

8. :giddy: ALCOHOL don't drink and ride, especially in the daytime heat. Don't waste time listening to driveling alcoholic publicans, who never get further than their barstool. You'll find a few of these around. They can tell a good story, but need "jockey wheels" just to stand up half the time!

 

9.After you reach safe ,reward yourselves with a nice (some prefer extra ) TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE available in many up-country towns. These are excellent value and good for relaxing a tired body after the day's ride. The recommended length of time for a massage is 2 hours; one hour is too short and three too long. The normal cost of a two-hour massage is var.

 

 

 

BIKE MEDICAL KIT

 

The basic kit I recommend for long trip is:

Spare key(!!!) & tyre gauge

Tools & rags

Fuses.

Flat tyre kit: tubes / plugs / levers / pump / valves.

Spark plug set.

Tape: duct & insulation.

Tow rope & wire. (r we riding 4WD here?)

Chain lube, if you don't have a Scottoiler fitted.

Glue: 5 min epoxy / Super glue / Adhesive.

 

 

 

 

Summary:

Preparing for a long long. ride.

 

Here are some of the things you need for the ride and the things you need to do before it.

 

Personal Riding Gear. (PRG)

 

The idea of riding is to enjoy it and come back alive to share the experience with others. Yes, motorcycling is dangerous. With this in mind here are some of the things you will need to enjoy motorcycling and live to tell about it.

 

A full face helmet.

Long sleeved jacket (with kevlar padding for protection)

Thick jeans or motorcycling pants.

Knee & shin pads.

Motorcycling gloves.

Motorcycling boots or shoes.

Ear plugs.

A rain coat.(FULL SET),

Necessary documents & equipment.

Now that you are suited, here are some important documents you must have with you when you ride. Police and the local land transport authority often conduct spot checks. You may be detained or your bike confiscated if you cannot produce these documents.

Valid riding license.(SGP)

Original or true certified copy of vehicle registration log card.

Valid insurance cover note.

Valid road tax Cash card (for toll at Singapore side of 2nd Link).

Here's some stuff you'll need to carry out minor repairs on your machine. An unexpected breakdown in the middle of nowhere can easily end your ride.

Tubeless tyre repair kit.

Motorcycle's tool bag.

Spare clutch cable.

Spare throttle cable.

Spare fuses.

High temperature Epoxy Putty.

Penknife.

A meter of steel wire.

10-meter nylon tow rope.

And for bikes with tube tires; one spare tube for each tyre.

Good-to-have equipment if your bike has space.

Battery jumper cable.

Foot air pump.

Hand fuel transfer pump.

Motorcycle maintenance.

It is obvious our bikes need to be in good working condition if we want to have fun on them. So prepare your bike for the ride.

Send your machine in for its scheduled maintenance regularly.

Prior a ride, send it in for an oil, oil filter & spark plug change if the last one was sometime back.

Clean your air filter.

Check your brake pads making sure its not worn out. Replace it before the ride if it is. Your life might just depend on it.

Check your tyres. Remove any nails & repair the puncture. You do not want this nail to come out and deflate the tyre when you are speeding along the highway do you? Replace it if its surface is balding (less then 3mm). Pay attention to your tyres. You have to trust them with your life when you ride.

Personal Items Packing List.

And finally here's a simple packing list of personal stuff you need for the ride.

Sufficient foreign currency.

Mobile phone with auto-roaming.

Map of the area you are riding to.

1 pair of pants.

1 t-shirt.

1 set of sleeping clothes.

1 set of undergarments.

1 pair of sandals.

1 pair of socks.

A pair of sunglasses.

Toothbrush & tooth paste.

Other personal toiletries.

Now that you're all packed with the bare necessities, here's some fun stuff you'd want to bring along.

Camera.

Swimming gear.

Good book. To read..

Small portable radio. (optional) Nokia 8310?

The above is just a guide to help the uninitiated prepare for a ride.

Please do get all the PRGear as this may safe your life should you crash.

Pay attention to the maintenance needs of your machine too.

As for the rest, well, space will determine what you can bring.

 

Ride safe and have fun!

 

 

Riding in Malaysia & Thailand D&N

 

Motorcycle touring in Malaysia & Thailand can be tricky in the day and more so if you plan to do it at night. Here you'll find some pointers that will help keep you riding another day should you decide to take up touring under the moonlight.

 

1. Getting enough rest.

Night riding requires a lot of concentration. Judging distances, straining your eyes to see what's ahead, adapting to the different road environment and being one step ahead of other road users by knowing what they'll do next, will take a lot out of you. So unless you plan to be driven by adrenaline, get enough sleep prior to the night ride. Take half a day off to do so if need be. Sleep late by watching a couple of ...VCDs or finishing a good book or better still, wash and polish your bike, the night before so that you can sleep in the day before the ride. Getting well rested is very very important. Imagine what will happen should you doze off for just a few seconds at a cruising speed of 150 km/h at night... :pity:

 

2. Getting prepared.

Needless to say, all preparations for a day ride, pertaining to riding gear and bike maintenance, also apply for a ride at night. Go PRG for details on this.

 

3. Tips for the road.

a)Try to avoid trunk roads or poorly lit/marked highways. Trunk roads are usually not lit and has few reflectors to mark its course. Riding on them at night is very dangerous and more so when you're faced with oncoming traffic with headlamps glaring at you just a couple of feet away.

Sandy patches and oil slicks around corners are almost impossible to see until its too late, while rain will end the ride.Stick to the major highways and keep the trunk roads for day trips.

 

Use reflective clothing or riding gear. Put on reflectors or reflective stickers at the rear end of your bike. Make yourself very visible to other road users. Being able to see you will allow them to react accordingly.

 

c)Know the route you plan to take. Remember the designated fuel stops and rest points. Signs are not always visible at night, so slow down and use your highbeam should you come across a directional sign.

 

 

d) Keep your eyes opened for rubbish and debri lying on the highway at all times. The wedge of a spent watermelon will spell disaster while a plank may mean imminent death. Be alert for such killer litter and maintain a speed that will allow you to react safely when you see them.

 

 

e)There will be instances when oncoming vehicles have their highbeams on as they pass you. This will drastically affect your vision and judgement.

Slow down and shift your eyes to the left side of the road. Avoid looking directly at the vehicle. Do not close your eyes and try not to highbeam back. Just concentrate on what's in front of you with your peripheral vision until the vehicle passes.

A good idea would be to wear anti-glare glasses on night rides. These are glasses with yellow tint lenses. It will reduce the glare from oncoming vehicles' headlamps, allowing you to look in front without much irritation and distraction.

 

f)Stop regularly. Try not to go more then 1 and a half hours without stopping for a rest. During the rest stops, take "Red Bull" or sweets to keep yourself alert for the next stretch. Intense concentration for long hours is very demanding.

 

 

g)Do not overtake from the left. There's a good chance the other motorist will not be able to see you. This includes using the breakdown lane. Breakdown vehicles parked along this lane are sometimes not marked with reflective pylons and are never lit.

 

h)On the road, slow down when you are about to overtake a vehicle. Make sure its safe, signal and before you pass, horn or flash your highbeam so that the vehicle in front knows you are about to overtake. Do not take for granted that with your headlamps on and signals blinking, the vehicle in front will know you're overtaking.

 

i)There will be instances when trucks and cars cut into your lane while you're overtaking. You may have honked or highbeamed but these things still happen. Apply your brakes and let them overtake.

To do this effectively and safely, you will have to overtake at a speed at which you will be able to apply your brakes suddenly without skidding or highsiding.

Once you're sure the vehicle in front is not coming into your lane, accelerate and pass as soon as possible. Go in slow and get out fast.

 

 

j)Be on the look out for motorcycles, cars and sometimes even trucks without tail lights! Yes, they do exist on the highways! If you're not alert and going a little too fast, you might just ram right into the rear end of one of them.

 

k)Do not stop on the road shoulder unless your bike has broken down. Small bikes use that lane all the time and if you're not well lit and conspicuous, one of them or even a car or a truck might plough into you.

 

 

l)Stop when it rains. Your vision will be impaired drastically, roads will be slippery, braking becomes almost impossible, road markers are no longer visible and the glare from oncoming vehicles become blinding. Worse of all, other vehicles will find it difficult to see and react to you too!

When it rains, go slow and head towards the nearest exit, R&R or motorcycle rain shelters (usually located under bridges and flyovers along the highway). Wait for the rain to stop or come to a light drizzle before proceeding.

 

 

m)Some stretches along the highway become foggy in the early hours of the morning or on cold nights. The fog can be very thick sometimes. Stay calm, slow down and use your highbeam or fog lamps. Visibility can even drop to just a couple of meters, so keep an eye out for parked vehicles and objects that may just appear right in front of you.

 

n)Stop when you become sleepy. Take a short nap or rest for a while. Never force yourself to keep going, thinking that its just a couple of kilometers away from the next stop. This will only mean dying in your sleep. Alert your buddy you're going to stop so that if you're riding in a group, the others will know that you're OK.

 

 

o)There will not be much in the form of law enforcement on the highways at night. The reason for this is obvious. It's stupid to speed and ride recklessly at night, so not many people do it! Ride at a comfortable speed, this will be different to one that you're comfy with in the day, and observe all laws of staying alive on a motorcycle.

 

Personally, I find there's nothing more exhilarating than cruising along a stretch of open road on bike, in the cool of the night with the moon watching on, as I take in each mile freedom has to offer. But freedom at night comes with a price. Develop the right riding style and attitude and you'll find as much fun riding under the moonlight.

Have fun and ride safe always!

 

 

Spirit of sharing info is good.So, Share it.. :cheer:

The North-South Expressway (NSE)

 

Distances

With the North South Expressway (NSE), motorists have a well-paved till route to the border of Thailand--without narrow, winding, congested and potholed roads. The following are approximate distances & suggested RIDING times in good conditions by experienced drivers from the Singapore border. Travel times do not include breaks, time spent at border crossings etc:Timing var from speed.

 

 

Malaysia

Destination Ave. Time Distance (approx. km)

Malacca Two ½ Hours 225

Kuala Lumpur Three ¾ Hours 370

Ipoh Six Hours 575

Butterworth Seven ¾ Hours 740

Thai Border Nine Hours 840

 

 

 

 

Tourist Police

Lost your way? Need help? Look for a tourist police officer. Tourist police officers are recognized by their checkered hat bands, dark blue shirts and trousers, and the letter "I" (for information) on a red and blue badge on their breast pocket.

 

Riding on NSE

Rest Areas

There are 18 rest and service areas (RSAs), located every 50 to 100 kms, with facilities like food stalls, toilets, parking and telephones. Some even have souvenir shops and produce markets. There are plans to build motels at the RSAs along the scenic northern track.

 

Emergencies

If your bike should breakdown seriouslly , do not panic. There are emergency phones located every 2 km. Because there have been instances of motorists on the old trunk road being taken for an expensive ride by freelance mechanics, the highway company (PLUS) runs a 24-hour emergency service. Only they are allowed to do repairs on the highway. (maybe not for Big CC bikes as malaysia has few of this) These mechanics in yellow PLUS vehicles do free minor repairs, recharge batteries, and can tow to the nearest RSA if major repairs are needed. Off the freeway the Automobile Association of Singapore (see Links) has reciprocal arrangements with its Malaysian cousin.

 

Exits

Exits to the main towns are generally on the left, watch out for signs placed 1 km and 500 m prior to the turn-off.

Safety on the Freeway

Watch out for stray buffaloes & chickens that spill over onto the expressway. Don't stop at the fruit stalls with big umbrellas, however tempting the durians are - it is a traffic offence to stop along the expressway shoulders.

Slow down as you approach slow moving traffic. Drivers rarely use their indicators when they change lanes, and cars do wander. Buses and trucks will also sometimes pull abruptly into the outer lane particularly when overtaking each other. It is easy to underestimate the difference in speed between you and these prehistoric leviathans

Speeding is a popular recreation on the NSE for both repressed Singaporean motorists and Malaysian drivers with big engined or exotic machineryso look for flashing lights and indicators. Make sure you indicate also - better to forget about kiasu and start thinking about getting to your destination in one piece.

Watch out for rainstorms, which can be sudden and heavy, both visibility and traction can be severely impaired.

 

Road Rage

Relax-lah! Would you believe road rage is alive and well on the Freeway? Not at the level of Los Angeles or the UK but nevertheless present. The worst incidences I have seen are where a speeding driver meets a self-righteous motorist - pulling into or staying in the overtaking lane at exactly the speed limit as faster cars approach is dangerous and foolish. The speed differences can be great. Other drivers are then put at risk as the two opponents joust and typically no one really comes off a winner. In some countries the righteous driver would be booked for dangerous driving.

Your speed should reflect the road conditions (which includes other motorists) and you should keep left unless overtaking.

Safety tips..from expart singapore travel

 

Is it Safe? Something that our colleagues and others who have been in Singapore for a while often ask me. Is the trip safe? Their concerns come out of horror stories and folk lore of the 8 hour drive on the old highway up to Kuala Lumpur, dodging timber jiggers and the tyre traps laid out by unscrupulous kampong mechanics.

Further north approaching Thailand there were concerns about terrorists and communist insurgents and Muslim fundamentalists.

I still get warnings not to drive at night in the Malaysian countryside.

Whilst one should always use common sense and not tempt fate, what might have been the case 10 years ago is no more. The NS Expressway is one of the safest roads in Asia and has its own Tow service

 

Southern Thailand is peaceful and now a growing tourist spot. The Thais ever anxious to allay fears, set up some years ago a special tourist police force with emphasis on popular tourist destinations. The trip into Thailand is a popular one for Malays with the town of Hat Yai, (one hour from the border) the most common destination.

Travel tips about safety need be no more cautious than the advice recommended for driving in Europe or the United States. Here are some common sense pointers:

·Plan your route before you leave.

·Always lock when you are away from it even if it is only for a quick minute.

·Park the in hotel/secure parking overnight - keep it off the street.

·If you have an alarm use it.

·Take your mobile phone with you - it’s always handy to have.

·Make sure you always have plenty of petrol in the tank.

We dun abandon or leave anyone to their own devices if that's what you're thinking. Even if your bike is spoilt (choy.. touch wood), we'll make sure a tow truck comes before the rest of us proceed.

OLD NO GO, NEW NO COME.
