@dannysg , do complete your licence..

riding a bike is different from driving a car..i missed that actually..cheap season parking, petrol , maintainability , the trill of riding pass everyone when all cars are jam on Highways..the trills never ends.

only those who has been riding, or ridden before will know the feeling.theres a lot of meet ups from singaporebikes forum.plenty of things to share with.

p.s a honda wave 125cc will only cost u maybe ard 6 bucks of petrol..and thats a full tank..LOL..

I have a few one liners for you:

Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul
(neat! An out of body experience! Where's the body? At home watching footy on the tellie? Or is it cricket? :wink: )

Four wheels is transportation. Two wheels is an attitude
(except in your home country. There it's defo transportation)
Only a Biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window
(to catch misc flying critters?) :o

Well, I learnt it from Singaporeans on the Singaporebikes forum :P . The 15$ saving is a the main motivation, but the ride along TPE-SLE-BKE is enticing enough as well :)

If you like Nasi lemak/roti prata or a cheap ciggie all the more reasons to cross. But I dont do either. So I cross the border and fill up at the Shell near the immigration and take a U turn. Everything done is flat 15 mins! The funny part is every month I get a 30 days Visa and stay there for 15 mins. :). Funnier part is filling the Address in Malaysia on the embarkment card :lol:

Heck, there are tons of Singaporean car drivers who go across to fill. Due to the 3/4th tank rule they normally can fill about 15 ltrs and the fuel cost to just go to JB and back in a car and the Jam for cars not withstanding they save like just 5$ still they do it. :)

Don't give up! A bike is one of the best transport tool around. Even if there are no concrete plans, why dont you just complete what you have started so you will have more options in the future?
