First motorcycle: Demak D7 Classic

This post is a throw back to the first day I bought my very first motorcycle:

On 12 May 2015 I got my first motorcycle; ~14 years after getting my license. This was how the first experience on a manual bike went.

In Malaysia there are a few classes of motorcycle license. The most common is B2: limited to 250cc, B1: limited to below 500cc and B or also known as B Full: above 500cc. There was an option when I first took my B2 license to add an additional MYR 100 to go for the B Full license. Saves time and money in the future but a shame that I was not allowed to do it at that time (was only 17 at the time and wasn't paying for the license).

I was introduced to the bike scene when I was very young. I got my bike license in 2001 (if memory serves me correctly) and I just started college at that time and needed a transport. Since I did not have a car license yet, my mum reluctantly agreed to let me ride to class.

Washing a non-removable helmet liner

Recently took the bike out and noticed that the helmet has a very funky smell so during one of the recent public holiday, I decided to wash the helmet liner (more like the entire helmet). Asked my best friend Mr. Google on ways to wash a non-removable helmet liner and got a rough idea.

All I needed was water, a large enough bucket to completely soak the helmet, a mild washing detergent, a good airy place to dry the helmet and of course the helmet.

*Note* I have created a wishlist page to better monitor and update the items

It is inevitable to anyone who has a hobby that the more time spent on it the more things you will want to add or change to make it more personalized and enjoyable. A little background on me. I have a lot of interest and lots of hobbies. I have a curious mind to try things and to tinker with them (but mostly will end up breaking somehow). Things I was interested in previously I do not have the time for them now.

So this is the only hobby which I can maintain in my busy schedule. In this post I will list future upgrades which I plan to get or do with the bikes. It is a combination of mods  and accessories to the bike. If something is completed I will link it to the post and as time pass by there will be more items added to the list.

Hello and welcome to my blog.

I am a passionate motorcycle rider from the tiny island of Penang, Malaysia. Started riding in year 2001 but had to give it up due to parent's order but started riding again in 2015 when I got my first motorcycle after some persuasion from the missus. As it luck would have it we came across the design of the bike she likes and she was thinking and doing research about it.
The blog serves as a record of all my motorcycle adventures and review of gears obtained. Please feel free to look at the Bucket list tab as those are the motorcycle trips I have in mind and if you are in the area or are interested in joining, let me know as I am more than happy to have the company.

I was exposed to motorcycles since I was at a very young age. My mum use to ferry me around the island on the Honda EX5 as it can get very congested at rush hour and also faster to reach the destination by lane splitting.
