So, why ride a motorbike? Or in a car? Or catch a taxi? Or catch a bus? Lazy bums, all of them!


Yep ALL lazy bums! Nice to see people on here all in agreement! :wink:

I have a colleague who rides one of those electric bikes. I'd personally have to be a hell of a lot older to be riding one of those. Ain't no kick in missing out on the exercise!

I'm reminded of that old joke that making love to a fat girl is a lot like riding a moped... it's really a lot of fun... you just don't want anybody to see you doing it.

I bought mine from Scootz opposite Queensway. I love it. I use it as a regular bike but put the power assist on for hills so I dont arrive at work sweaty.

For all you lazy gits, there is an electric bicycle shop recently opened on the ground floor street facing in Enterprise Hub at Toh Guan Road East (about 10 minute walk from IMM) They also are carrying some folding bicycles as well (non-electric). quite a selection of bikes of the 20" variety up to the 24" variety. For interest, I found out that these are being manufactured locally here in Singapore out on Tractor Road.

Here's another large manufacturers showroom:
