So its more like a toll for the roads. Got it. We have something similar on certain roads.
Yup...Providing a smooth journey for all.
Aj, great write up. I like reading about your adventure and seeing the great pictures.

Singapore is definitely on my list of "must see" places.

Are there any bike rentals available?

Hey dude..thanks...

Singapore has got no bike rentals....you can fly to Phuket,Thailand...there have many places to rent bikes...all sort of them....from small cc,to big ones....like Africa Twin,Transalp,KLE,etc...then you can do your tour from there...

If you happen to dropby in Singapore,I will be glad to show you some best riding grounds...but basically,none... lol!

Most of the best places to ride is across the border...

Hey thanks man...yup....
but on the other hand,this thing will still did'nt really smooth the journey...infact,it cramps up on the small roads when others bypass the usual highway to save that extra cost to avoid it...and us riders,no matter what,still at the loosing end... Frustrated

alittle continuation from where we left off.....

Just before sleep,upload some photos to the lappy,while watching some MTVs...


Slept a little early that night due to the tiredness of riding earlier in the day.

I can't recall the time i woke up the next day,but it's in time to catch the morning sunrise.


This is Lamai Beach...just behind the resort i was staying...






I went out for breakfast after shower,and did alittle scouting at the Southern part of the Island..
Everythg is fresh to me...with the aid of the Island Map,whatever ahead is still unpredictable...


Soon,i found myself at a secluded fisherman beach..






Checking on my super "high-tech" navigation system for directions again.. Suspect

From the fisherman beach,i rode to some route that's not even visible on the Island map...as some of this roads are not even fit to call it,road...

The road i was taking,leading to endless route...that soon turn into dirt-road...and somehow,i felt that i am travelling upwards and to a higher altitude...
At this point,these are like those jeep tracks..


And few more kilos from here,i think i've gone beyond the route that no one have gone...or maybe there is...it kept leading upwards and upwards...oh gosh...i'm begining to worry myself...
From this picture,i have gone through many bending uphills,with loose gravel and rocks like this...now,i am facing downwards taking this photo just incase something bad happens,someone might found my camera...and hopefully it will be useful... What a Face

Now,i run down to take from another angle downhill facing up...just doing some detective job... naughty

It just don't end there...the hills got even trickier after this point and more steep and singlepath that i don't have the guts or the right mind to snap anymore photos...

Somehow...it all pays out...
The results,is far fulfilling...

I'm amazed....the scenic view...it's so spectacular...i think the camera did'nt really do a good job...




The actual thing is more relax and breathtaking than what you see here...It's "more than meets the eye"... cyclops



To be continued..... cheers

You live in a very beautiful place in the world! Is fuel an issue do you keep the tank always full or is it available everywhere?

hi...the large fuel tank is mostly just for the looks...i just like it big...riding the bike long distance,it's just for self assuarance that you have plenty of fuel in the tank and also riding something big rather than those regular dirtbike size...
And when i do trails or anywhere that i have crashed the bike,i think the tank have saved the radiator or the bike from severe damage....
I think you need to use this tank to personally know what's the best bit of it.


I know you are thinking that why would i need a big tank in a small country with many petrol station available anywhere...
