    some photos of our 2 crazy friends.. captions are from the riders themselves... not me... :evil


    Look at the nice moon..suddenly out of nowhere Jerome txt for "Adventure"!!next 2hrs he was already at my place

    [​IMG]

    We decided to start with the path infront of my place

    [​IMG]


    first fall.. jerome blamed it on strong wind (see the trees being blown by the wind.) oh well

    [​IMG]


    Been wanting to see this ship for the longest time!!finally the tide was on my side

    [​IMG]


    Look closely n u will see Jerome..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    After walking for some time then I realized that we were actually stepping on shells instead of sand..

    [​IMG]

    In Singapore they sell this for $25-$30 bucks!!here we can get it for FREE!!!

    [​IMG]


    Finally decided to ride out...Jerome was stuck..tot it was minor problem but he suddenly said "it's Gona be a very long day!!"

    [​IMG]

    tried to dug out the mud

    [​IMG]


    We huffed,n we puffed...but Giselle was really stuck!

    [​IMG]

    This is my Pastrana DC shoe which I got as a bdae gift

    [​IMG]

    Haiz..no words to describe my feelings.

    [​IMG]


    Jerome doing the cover "Ada lembu nak jaga!!"

    [​IMG]

    after 1 hour, we decided to get shovel tool and water

    [​IMG]


    Jerome using the shovel..proved to be much much harder as the mud was getting dry!!

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Finally got the rear tyre clear of the mud

    [​IMG]


    Haha planking while we had a break!!

    [​IMG]

    Its been so long TDMs gather for a ride

    [​IMG]


    Damien's Transalp

    [​IMG]


    Some riders didnt show up, some were late

    [​IMG]


    Tonight, we have 10 riders

    [​IMG]
    4 TDMs
    2 Fazers
    1 Transalp
    1 CB750
    1 GS12

    [​IMG]


    travelled 70km along highway and first stop around 2:00am.. coz lead biker is hungry... hahhaaha

    [​IMG]

    but it's supper time.. so we all ordered too

    [​IMG]

    Nasi Goreng USA (fried rice, USA Style, as they say)

    [​IMG]


    after meal and laughters, we left to Jamaluang and Mersing

    the road is dark and winding, uphill and downhill, headlights were not enought to point multidiretion when it come to twisties..

    had to follow lead bike's tail light to sense the curve.

    we went along comfortable speed (not knee dragging) so every rider was able to keep up with convoy. an it was very beautiful to see red tail lights lining along and taking curves (i was second last rider).

    along the way, we changed the lead bike, CB750 to GS12, who is equipped with more lighting, as the road becomes more dark and curves are not marked.

    [​IMG]

    AJ tried to adjust the head light

    [​IMG]

    i tried to take some onboard cam

    [​IMG]

    result is not good.. =(

    [​IMG]


    finally reached Mersing town at 4:30am

    [​IMG]

    for coffee break

    [​IMG]

    CB's tail light came to loose, after some screws drop along the way.

    [​IMG]

    we are lucky to find one petrol kiosk in operation, the rest are closed

    [​IMG]


    then we left for beach, Sedili Kecil 6:30

    [​IMG]

    beach is left untouched with morning breeze to fresh the sleepy ridres.

    some decided to walk along the beach

    [​IMG]

    but i decided to ride along the beach

    [​IMG]

    a few of cam whore photos (bike porn photos will come later)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tried to put on center stand, but it just bounced back, and there, bike didnt fall, well balanced ..

    [​IMG]

    some are taking a nap

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    before leaving..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Guys

    I moved to Sing 5 months ago and have been riding in Vietnam and Borneo on weekend holidays.

    I own a Garmin GPS Map 62s and want to find a dealer who understands Adventure riders.

    I want to get maps so I can go to these countries and find my way around.

    I was in Japan last week and will be in Jakarta next week. If I have my GPS loaded with the right maps I could ride in a lot more countries

    Who do you recommend

    I bought a 1983 Suzuki GSK750 on the weekend.

    If anyone is into older bikes and can direct me to a place to get service and repair work I would appreciate it.

    well... AJ is into older bikes but he likes older adv bikes.. not sports bikes.

    you can try RS motor at kaki bukit autobay, rosli is one patient meh, when it comes to older bikes..

    (you need to be patient with him too) my friend's bike was there for 3 month plus.

    It has been a slow sunday ever since his departure.

    We did a tribute ride to him back to his home town last Sunday.Remembering n relived what he would always wanted to do.
    I would be fulfilling his dreams to ride to Kohsamui which didnt happen,jus a matter of time.
    And like any ordinary Sundays,he will always be there be it doin bike at garage,going jb bikeshop,or riding.
    All I have to do is text him.Even on his very last min,I think I was the last person he texted saying he was on his way.His great humble personality with great humour have always been remembered and will follow us in any place we would be riding in near future.
    I spend 1hr goin back this thread frm page 1 and wish I am still in page 1.

    You will always be with us brudder.RIP Bobby!

    Hi Guys

    Just bought a 2004 Caponord and looking to ride into Malaysia either Friday night or early Sat stay over night somewhere and visit the Classic Bike show Sunday before riding home.

    Anyone doing similar or interested in joining?

    I have no experience in Riding Malaysia and the Cap is a new bike story altogether for me. Have a DR650 in Aus so big difference.

    I am competent on the road speed is flexible up to about 140 dirt roads may be different to begin.

    Hi Fred,welcome.to this freakin country called Singapore.

    I've made known about you and the capo by Steve who actually pmed me regards about front pegaso front fender that I've mounted on my previos Capo.

    Anyways,back on the Port Dickson thing,you can try looking up at Singaporebikes.com under some thread.there are sure some people who already have made some plans on going up.

    cheers.

    AJ

    Would like to meet up have a chat about what mods you've done to the Capo.

    I find the heat from the motor and the exhaust sysytem make it difficult(really impossible in office clothes) to commute on. Would appreciate any ideas.

    Also would like to talk about who serviced it for you?

    This one has not been well looked after and I need to get a good baseline service and tune. Went up the East Coast to Kuantan on Sat and then across to the Malaysia Classic bike show at Port Dickson and back Sunday. Motor cut at one stage for no reason no lights on the dash.

    From then on EFI light was coming on at regular intervals had to stop wait restart go. Thankfully made it back.

    Needs a good setup before I can do a bigger run hey!

    I'm out of town for a while so if iots okay I'll PM when I'm around

    Hi.Fred,
    I've replied your PM.
    The capo was a.good bike,light,powerful,except being a.Japanese faithfull rider,I find some.of the design on the engine and computer abit odd.
    I dont feel heat issues on the bike,so wearing my best clothing dont have any discomfort.But,hey,I've installed leovince aftermarket exhaust.Its the best upgrade for the Capo.
    I did.add.handlebar riser to it.Just felt that the stock handlebar needs to be replace to AT bar,but didnt have the chance bcoz i sold it then.
    The only downside.I.have on the bike.is.the fuel.consumption.Since I got it,i could only get 13-14km/ltr.Its quite irritating though.I guess its the same consumption throughout all the Capo,becoz another expat also pm me at sbf regards the FC.
    I didnt plan to.sell the bike.though,I left it at some bikehop to get the rims.powdercoated.Somehow a.walk-in customer shown interest in the bike,and price was irrisistable.

    Cheers

    Hello Singapore Riders!

    Have any of you heard of the Tubliss system.....basically converts spoked wheel mounted tyres to tubless for dirtbikes. The company website is http://tubliss.com/

    My question is: Would anyone know if this available in Singapore? If so where?

    I live in India and it's exhorbitent to have it sent over from US by mail. I have some friends going over to Singapore next week. If I know the address of the shop in Singapore, they could bring it over for me.

    Thanks.

    A fruitful session held last Saturday. Hope to have a good one on 24th June.
    Went to Mustafa Centre to check logistics stuff to buy to prepare the event.
    One of the recce session, one of the big tankers had a great time experience once in a lifetime tight trail in the terrain.

    Will post pic soon.

    Due to space constraint & new parking ERP implemented at our usual meetup location at Simpang Bedok, We will be meeting at Singapore Expo Carpark (Outside Mr.Prata Kopitiam). Please have a proper meal before reporting. Ensure your PETROL TANK is not more than 10 Litres filled as manouvering in offroad terrain with heavy tank will be much inconvenience in a few tight trails. Ideal capacity of petrol use: 7litres~10litres.

    Organised by: "Bro_Isk Trail Management Team/Crew"
