Hi Ong & Dannyelly,

 

Looks like we are all staying in the northern region. Well, there's still one more biker, William Tan who rides a CB750. Let's wait for him to come in and from there we decide where to meet for a 'kopi'.

 

God Bless!

Hi all

 

Ya, seems like we are all in the North Western part of Singapore. Should be easy to meet up.

 

Fri and Sat nights are no good for me. Got cell group and service, respectively. Last minute arrangement also difficult for me as got to help take care of the kids. But usually ok after say 9pm on weekday nights. How about the rest?

 

Sun morning (6am - 7.30am) is usually the time i go for petrol in JB (shell along Jln Wong Ah Fook - and yes, V-POWER), if i go that is. It's the best day/slot cause there's almost no queque at all. In and back in BP within 45 mins is mostly possible. Towards 7.30am, bit of queque on the way back at the immigration (4-5 bikes) and custom check (a bunch) but at most 10 mins delay. Pump between 16L to 17.5L most time, pick up a few loaves of Gardenia bread and i saved about S$18 to S$20. Not too bad for a 45 mins ride in the cool morning air :smile:

 

 

Also thinking of riding to Mersing via Kota Tinggi and back via Kluang n NS highway one of these Sat or Sun. Basically to start out early around 6am latest, in Mersing for breakfast + some information gathering (island trip n Endau Rompin), go to Kluang, which i heard has got good twisties enroute, early lunch at Kluang (some good food i heard), a short blast along the highway to clear the bike system and back in Singapore around 3pm. Haven't got a date fixed but hope to do it by end Oct. Got 2 riders keen (myself and friend), so it's a small group. Anyone keen?

 

Will keep you guys updated.

 

God Bless

Hi Ong,

 

Same here! Fri and Sat nights are out for me. Got cell group and family bonding sessions. Last minute meetings also are out for me. Yes, weekday nights after 9pm is ok for me.

 

About your ride up North in Oct, I am interested as long as it is the last week of Oct. 3rd week of Oct, I will be in New Zealand so can't make the trip. Haven't brought my bike to Msia yet. Please keep me posted.

 

God Bless!

Sorry guys for not coming in earlier...

 

Hey dannyelly, I just moved to Choa Chu Kang Crescent!! Blk 863B! Cool! If you see a CB750 with 3 big boxes, that would be me.

 

And yes, a meet up will be a very good thing indeed...

Another way to knowing how much petrol you have left...

 

There's a switch on the left side. You can switch to main, off, or reserve.

 

Ride in main until when you feel you bike going do die off. That means no more petrol flowing. Switch to the reserve and this would last you for about 60-70km more.

Rainman: Any good Kopi shops there?

Hi Ong,

 

Yes, at Woodlands Grove there is a malay muslim joint and they serve good tea and kopi. Parking also convenient. Are the rest of you ok with the suggestion?

Bro, good choice, I rode the bike for 3 yrs in the past, so are my friends, all 3 of us love this bike, we now riding ST.

 

piece of advice, use good engine oil cos this bike is oil cool. full syn oil can last u 8000km per change, work out the sum your self, u end up save money instead of using cheaper oil.

 

there is no need to change sparks plug if u have no problem starting the bike in the morning when engine is cold. and smooth engine while running.

 

DIY your servicing, it is simple and save money and reliable.

Didn't know there is a CB750/Sevenfifty thread in here, :sweat:

rode one three years ago, bought it new from Mah Pte Ltd, paid $14,500 for it.

 

Sold it off one year later due to not suitable for Malaysia highway riding and overtaking :weep:

and also don't like the idea of having no fuel level gauge ( even a wave have a digital gauge ) :mad:

 

Apart from these and the rear wheel easily lock up, this bike is very good, I miss it very much. :cry:

It doesn't make any difference whether a motorcyclist has the right-of-way or not, the rider is the one most likely to get hurt.

Hi Benson and RebornBiker,

 

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I started this thread about 4mths back cause I wanted to find out among the 15000+ members of SB Forum if anyone owned this ride. Well, so far there are 4 of us who are riding this machine and that's good for a start. I have always desired to own this bike since its inception. No regrets owning it. Well, hope to see more bikers owning this ride. It's simple and fuss free and with Honda's legendary technology, can't see us going wrong. :smile:

 

God Bless!

It would be nice if the four of you can post a pix of your bike here?

 

BTW like what Bensonloo said, this bike can easily DIY your basic servicing,

the only problem is to replace the oil filter when the exhaust pipe is hot :sweat:
