    Hi all,

    I'm new to Singapore, but I've been around the block a few times. Back in the States I ride a 1976 BMW caferacer'd out ... don't have a bike yet here in S'pore, but looking. Any riding clubs around here? Any basic info I should know before I go looking for a bike? Totally new - any help is appreciated. I've ridden up into northern Vietnam - did a 2 week journey with a friend into remote regions, fantastic! Looking to do the same in many parts of SE Asia. Hope to meet some of you soon.

    Hi 76er,

    Welcome to Singapore. There are a few riding clubs around. Check out www.singaporebikes.com for some details of this groups...

    Mostly riders here form their own groups with friends or others with the same specific bikes like the Goldwing group, Hayabusa group, Africa Twin groups, etc... there are also brand specific groups.. like the Harley group, BMW group, Ducati group, etc.... so you can pick and choose what you want.. there are also some like us who are not too interested in clubs/groups but rather we just want to go for a ride with anyone who wants an adventure...:D

    you can also find used bikes at singaporebikes.com from private owners or from bike shops around the island... since you are new here get one of us to help you when hunting for bike or you may be quoted a foreigner's price at the bike shops..

    Once again welcome to Singapore... :clap

    last weekend, 1200km, 3D2N, cameron highland.. TDM's comfortable cruising at 160kmh with 2up, 3 box full, can pull 170+ easily while overtaking.. didnt manage to try after that as wify is knocking my helmet alrdy.

    only complaint is front knobby tyre caused handle bar vibrations.. may be balancing not done properly? and i dont have heavy balencers neither..

    first leg, managed to utilize full tank range and stop for petrol only at Dengkil (after seremban) at 320km.. same on return leg, stop once at seremban, then again at jb.

    some bike pics.. while going up Highest Peak (Gunung Brinchang)

    I strongly believe those tyres are not knobbies.

    Is there a possibility that the wrong size front tyre has been fitted on the bike... tyres of a different size other then the stock can also cause the vibration... i know that the stock front tyre for the TDM is 120/70-17 and the rear tyre should be 160/60-17 but Sirac does not seem to have these sizes..

    anyway... riding up Cameron Highlands is always nice... went up there many years back...

    You should also try the East-West Highway from Kuantan to KL... I rode through there just two days ago... there is a section of about 50km where the road is winding with all kinds of corners, up and down the hill... dangerously fun to ride...:wink:

    cameron highland can go up from 2 different routes..

    1 is from Tapah (with Cameron highland sign) it's narrow and sharp corners.
    road is bumpy and people on road side.

    another is further up near pulai, new road, smooth corners (you can knee down)

    and for my tyres, i think it is varadero 125 rear tyre, and speed rating is 180kmh.

    i can cruise smoothly at 160kmh... more than that is vibrating..

    again need to check balancing :norton

    FILM SYNOPSIS
    Riding Solo To The Top Of The World is the unique experience
    of a lonesome traveler, who rides his motorcycle all the way
    from Mumbai to one of the remotest places in the World, the
    Changthang Plateau, in Ladakh, bordering China.
    Situated at an average altitude of 15,000 feet, Changthang covers
    almost 30,000 square kilometers of Ladakh A land devoid
    of roads and with temperatures which dip to minus 40 degree
    Celsius in winter.
    As a one-man film unit, he astonishes you, filming the landscape
    he passes by and the people he interacts with, capturing
    moments of beauty, pain, love, hardship, self doubt and spiritual
    triumphs.
    As a city slicker, his interaction with the nomads of the region,
    the Chang pas, who live at the highest altitude used by mankind
    in the world, teaches him a new perspective on life, as
    does the religious fervor he encounters.
    The Hemis festival that comes once in twelve years, the Tashi
    Choling monastery where the Chang pas pray to the Rain God
    and the ever-changing life of the Chang pas, have all been shot
    in all their splendor and festivity.
    The man and his camera travels even beyond the realm of
    practicality as he films the monastery at Chemur, the very first
    time a camera has ever entered the said monastery.
    Riding Solo to the Top of the World, in essence, is a film about
    a journey that begins as an adventure and ends with the man,
    Gaurav Jani, seeking the person within.
