Could not recall when was the last time I went on a long haul, or at least a full day ride (like, leave home in the morning only to get back just before dark or around mid afternoon). However I do know this. The R1’s road tax expired on 7th November 2014. Just had it renewed on 22nd October this year – a mere two weeks before a full year with no road tax. 🙂
Had it crosses the full year, the bike would need to be Puspakom-inspected before renewal can be done. And I did flout the law when I rode the bike on at least two occasions without insurance or road tax! My bad…
10th May – no road tax – rode to Bandar Baru Nilai on Zack’s small kenduri. Not really a credible ride, though on our return leg we took the long way home, stopping by in Morib purportedly for a bike event.
Well, that was that. And it was the only group ride for 2015.
After having the road tax renewed, I thot of giving the bike a spin around Klang Valley on one Saturday end of November – warm the engine up (panaskan enjoin), so to speak. But (no surprise!), the battery was flat and “kong”. What do I expect? Its been more that six months since I last started the bike… ha ha ha ha… The battery? beyond salvage… bought a new one on 2oth December (this is for record purposes… :-))
Time still fly.
