I want a big bike!

Posted by willie in Thoughts | 2 Comments

Before I own a car, I was a big bike fan. But, when I started my first job in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan, my salary was only RM1,300. So I bought Kawasaki Kips, 150cc. It was powerful because it’s a 2-stroke engine bike. Driving on KL highway was fun because could drive the bike at 120km per hour without worrying about the speed trap. Unfortunately, I had to sell the bike in year 2000 because I moved to Kuching.

Although I sold the bike, I still have a motorbike here in Kuching. Not as powerful as Kawasaki Kips but I love it.  Now, I’m driving Suzuki VR125. The love for big bike is still within me. But recently, my brother bought a big bike, a 650cc bike. He brought me to Ghee Hwa motors to have a look at his new bike and other bikes on display there. I was so envious of him and my love for big bike now grow stronger and I am determined to buy one by next year.Furthermore, I always see big bikers convoy along Kuching-Serian highway nowdays. They make me “geram”….hahaha!

A few months ago, a group of us went to a Big Bike Show at The Spring. I was very excited to see all the amazing bikes. If only I have the money at that time, surely I will buy one for myself. Huhuhu!!!!

[Angel Pep, became my motorcycle model that day. Hahaha!]

[And…the rest of us, the Sarawak Bloggers]

So, what big bike am I planning to buy? At present, I’m thinking of Kawasaki Ninja, 250cc.

But, do you think I should buy a more powerful bike? Like 1,000cc bike? Please don’t tell me to buy easy rider bike, I just fall in love with a Super Bike.

Finally, I got the answer for Serian folks

Remember I complaint on the road connecting JPN office to the main road? Oh maybe you missed it. You can always click here. I was wondering why after a few years, the road was not tar-sealed. It’s kinda weird for a government office not to have a proper road right? So I thought something must be wrong.

[The road in front of JPN is not tar-sealed?]

[See? not tar-sealed]

Lucky for me, I used a proper channel to investigate instead of asking any opposition party to find out. Hahaha! So, I e-mailed Sarawak TALIKHIDMAT once again to ask. As usual, the answer wasn’t immediate but they would get the answer sooner or later.

[My e-mail to TALIKHIDMAT]

After a few months, TALIKHIDMAT managed to get Serian District Council to answer. And this is their response to me and TALIKHIDMAT Sarawak.

[The response from Serian District Council]

You can’t read? Ok. Basically, they were saying that they cannot tar-sealed the road because the status of the land (lot) is unclear. They need to refer and wait for Samarahan Land and Survey department to clear it off. I’m not sure what they meant by “status“. Did it mean that they do not know whose the owner of that lot or it means they did not know whether the lot is a mixed-zone or Native Customary Land (NCR)?

Being Malaysians: Poor Road Users

Note: This does not apply to all Malaysians.

I trust that some of you have read my previous post on Being Malaysians: Must love smelly stuff before. I think you also have heard that tourists commented that Malaysians are friendly people but then, would you agree that some Malaysians are road bullies when it comes to driving? If in KL, we always see people driving fast, the scenario in Kuching Sarawak is just different (Maybe the same in a few cases). Let me demonstrate to you using the photos I took:

[Don’t you ever dare park your car here! It’s mine!]

[Hey! The right lane is for slow drivers and the left lane is for overtaking. Muahaha! Thank you! Silly driver! ]

[This is a nice parking space with soft green grass. I care what?]

[This lane is for parking and not for turning left, so he said…I think he failed his traffic law test or table test]

[I will make the road into one way road. No harm right. I just want to be near the shop]

Hey guys, the captions are ironic. Hope you guys got what I meant. If only these Kiasu Malaysian drivers could change their mindset and definitely we will have better and safer driving. Adios!
