COVID-19. Yes, the keyword that has been dangling around everyone's mind for the last few months.

Today, we will discuss about something enjoyable. That is the perk of having a motorbike during this circuit breaker period.

 

 

This one’s not a myth: riding a motorcycle can be very dangerous. 2019 statistics indicate that motorcycle and pillion riders account for 1 in 2 of all road fatalities in Singapore. And yet, a million cautionary tales later, here you are, helmet and all. We understand the convenience that your bike affords you, and certainly the high that comes with hurtling down the expressway with the wind in your arm hairs. But before you put foot to peg, here are 5 motorcycling myths that could cost you your life, and our tips to staying safe on Singapore’s roads.

Sick of squeezing onto the MRT every morning, but not about to commit financial suicide by taking out a car loan? Well, riding a motorcycle solves both of those problems.

 

Not only will you have your own transport and no longer be subject to the vagaries of MRT breakdowns, Grab surge pricing and taxi midnight surcharge, you’ll also be less affected by traffic jams thanks to the small size and agility of your vehicle. Unless you live right next door to an MRT station, riding a motorbike is also probably the fastest way to get around Singapore.

 

But the road to owning and riding your own bike is a long, arduous one, and probably more expensive than you thought it would be, now that COE has gone through the roof in the past 4 years.

 

Still, any biker will tell you it’s totally worth it. So let’s get started.

Singapore is an urbanized city-state island country that is a part of Southeast Asia. Located at the southern tip of the Malayan Peninsula between Malaysia and Indonesia, it has an area of about 700 sq. km, and has a total population of about 4.8 million.
