Went to warm up my DR800 just now, checked the oil level, checked for leaks, changed the exhaust back to stock, and went for a short test ride. Felt the lack of response, the pick up was a little bit slower than when I used the aftermarket exhaust, on my Cameron trip, but quieter. :)

 

Was a bit hard to start because 10 days didn't start already. On the road, purposely ram throttle a bit more than usual to get the battery charged up. Look at the speedo meter, 100km/hr already, crap got to slow down because of red traffic light farther up front. :sian:

 

Did a U-turn and on the way home, tested the brakes, still good, but I dare not squeeze to the max for E-brake. No confident in the brakes. Maybe will do that end of the year when I change tires. :angel:

 

Also chased away a cat that have been living in my bike cover for the last 10 days. Got to get rid of it somehow keeps coming back! :angry:

Motorcyclist are the nicest people on the road, try not to kill us.

Got lost somewhere in Bugis, went to Mount Sophia there, ulu place, see ghost, fcuk care, eventually found my way out, rode till Tanjong Pagar there, saw several police cars with no rear lights at different locations, one of them on siren out of the blue for fcuk...nothing much.

Buanged at CTE last night while avoiding a car who swerved into my lane. Lucky was not going fast. Was sent to TTSH and had a cast put on my fractured wrist. Concerned relatives nagged at me to sell the bike. My thoughts as I looked at my wrecked RXZ before being taken away in a stretcher? Get well soon buddy, we shall ride again when we are both fixed up. I ain't ready to give up riding yet! =)

zoom zoom all in all was fun i must say. thou i repeat the practical, i must say its a good start!

Joy ride this morning. On PIE saw a car coming up fast behind me on lane 1. Immediately I filtered left. Already at 100 kph but never mind. Black BMW 330 overtook and immediately started to tailgate a Volvo. The traffic was so heavy he was stuck. But started to swerve in and out of cars to get ahead.

 

Yesterday I was driving along PIE also and got tailgated by a WRX. Nowhere to filter cos traffic was heavy. I slowed down further to leave a bigger gap in front as I don't wanna get rammed if I had to slow suddenly. In the end he gave up and squeezed left and right and disappeared.

 

What's up with these people?

most drivers in the neighborhoods are friendly:

 

both incidents happened in bukit batok central neighborhood.

 

driver stopped in the middle of a single lane going towards mscp. i stopped behind him and realised he's letting his pregnant wife alight first. he gave me a "thank you" sign and i nodded.

 

thereafter, a van driver came out of his parking lot abruptly and he realised that i was shocked and he gave me a "sorry" sign. i nodded and left.

Be Safe & Wreckless

Went to Hatyai bike week as a pillion, my 2B 2 stroke can maintain the speeds required...but the petrol, the vibration, the 2T...cannot la. Found Msian drivers to be more considerate than Singapore ones, on the highway that is, Thai ones as well, they don't horn at minor2 things, they don't really drive/ride fast when its not needed. Just my observation la.

Today while riding, almost got into an accident with a BUS!

If kena really is bang bus die! :eek:

 

While riding along Thomson road towards MacRitchie, a bus was leaving the bus stop near the shell while I just finished changing lane from 1st lane (right lane) to 2nd lane(middle lane).

 

I wanted to go the the left lane for the filter lane on the left later, but I can see that the bus will go into the yellow box from the bus stop, so I kept to the middle lane.

 

Siiii Kaaaaa Leeee! The bus go straight into the center lane from the bus stop at a 45 degree blocking both the left lane and 1/2 of middle lane ! I horn like mad, and SIAM towards the right, checking blind spot while swerving!

 

The bus slowed down, and I zoomed pass it's bumper in a crank course shape, with only 1 arm lenght to spare! Phew! Lucky never die!!!!! :sweat:

Driving on ECP from airport to city Sunday afternoon 8-10 Lambos came tearing down the highway, swerving their way through moderate traffic and exited Rochor. I thought I was gonna die if anyone makes a mistake. Not pleasant at all.
