    I'm always wondering, why there's no dedicated section about motorbikes in zerotohundred forums? I'm sure there are many of us who ride for commuting/leisure. I suggest that the admin create a section for bikers to discuss and talk about motorbikes, big and small. Cheers!

    Thanks Tom! I don't have a bike at the moment, but I plan to get one soon. The newly launched Modenas NS200 seems interesting. Used to ride Modenas Kriss and Honda EX5 a few years back. Now I only ride on my dad's Suzuki V125 scooter in my hometown when going 'balik kampung'.

    Lots of choise for budget and ppwer nowadays.
    I was eyeing the benelli tnt 135 then they roll out the RFS 150i.
    Now Modenas joined with rebadge Bajaj bikes which is very tempting esp the pricing.
    other brand like the ktm duke 200/250 or rc,yamahar25 and honda cbr is well known but does not interest.Only the Duke manage to get my attention.

    Was eying a 250 mahine but after comparing the price and power i get,i guess a 150 super cub ia the best.

    Still can't yet imagine riding a bike on the daily or even on weekends in our local traffic. I haven't got a license as well, although i've rented cubs and occasionally superbikes during my island trips to Thailand

    very true, although what i meant was having to brave other cars and trucks when traffic is not at standstill

    personally, i still see biking as recreation rather than an actual transport at the moment

    the new Modenas Pulsar is promising. it is source from Bajaj which also manufacture for some of KTM dukes bikes.
    Planning to get the cafe racer.
    There are only 1 issues i see with modenas. spare parts is not easy to source

    Yup, very true. My friend's hubby rides a scooter to work. Already late 40's and ride slow on the left lane. Was hit by a car and broke his leg. Out of commission for a few months....:nurse::bawling:

    Problem with Malaysian drivers is the ego they had when driving car. Once these drivers get in their car, the road is theirs. Things i hate abt Malaysian drivers when i am riding;
    1.They dont use their indicator. If they use, it will be when they are half way in your lane and squeezing you.
    2.Lorry drivers dont bother abt us except petrol tankers (i salute them).
    3.Notice how drivers in UK even the police will make a gap for biker to go through during jam...There are no law on this but they still do that. Drivers in Malaysia dont bother to put their car in the middle of a lane. I only encounter once a driver makes a gap when he notice i was approaching and his car is stopping in the road shoulder.
    4.Drivers whom are not riders dont understand that when its raining,you overtake us and straightaway cut back in...all the dirty water disperse from your tire will fly straight for our face.
    5.Stop trying to drag race with us at traffic light.None of you have the get up and go potential as us.
    6.Stop using your damn mobile phone while driving, you can kill us.
    7.Is it so hard to apologize when you nearly killed us? A chinese uncle apologise by raising his hand and nodding his head after he made a fast and furious move by overtaking me and braking hard to turn.....twice.ho notices his mistake and even slow down to let me pass and apologise.

    Thats all from deep down my heart as a biker in Malaysia.

    The problem is not all bikers like you. Many spoil the bikers image. Most bikers I see on the road, beat traffic lights, race, don't signal too, change lane as they please and so on. The real bad thing is now I also see cars also beat traffic light....:banghead::banghead:
