Night Ride 1

Night ride?
The WORST!!!
Well, the ride wasn't during the night at start to be exact
But it was dragged until 10pm

It was basically an usual ride from KL to Manjung
I don't want to rush, so I thought I may want to ride to Manjung abit late in the evening around 4.30pm
Approximately, I should reach the destination around 8.00pm or so

The weather was good. Until I enter Perak
So I was abit unhappy and demoralized by the heavy rain, despite having this rainproof jacket
But my pants and socks are all soggy
And I'm abit worry about my laptop at the back
But after clearing out the heavy rain, I was lucky after all for not starting to ride earlier on afternoon
By the time I got there, I already past the worst
The road was slippery with rainwater but the weather is clear.
With this condition, I can't rev up as much as I want to
So I think I can't meet up with my own schedule, to arrive Manjung before nightfall

Its already around 7.00pm when I got off the highway into Bidor exit
This should take around one and a half hour to reach there
I don't want to ride at night in this condition
Which my whole body is already shivering in cold
Plus this new headlamp doesn't give out much light projection during night

The surrounding air is suddenly become more humid and cold
But I don't plan to stop at all cost
I want to reach Manjung as soon as possible, that's all I cared about
I was following a car slowly from behind
The car giving the signal to turn left, but the car show no sign of turning left
So I decide to take over the car when the unthinkable happen
The car suddenly break to turn left
I want to take over but there's a car on the opposite side

Emergency break it is
I thought I can stop in time
I have done few times of emergency break, but this time was different
The road was very slippery
For all I know, there's nothing much I can do as the rear tire started to slide forward

I don't know what happened back then but few seconds later I already lying motionless in the middle of the road.
Not that I'm paralyzed, I'm just confused. What the hell happened?
Surprisingly, I felt relieve, no idea why. Maybe there's nothing serious about that accident
One thing I know, my jacket did save me from the brutal roughness of Malaysian road
If not, my shirt and skin could have been torn out

Few people came to help, I started to get up, and couldn't help but laugh looking at my motorcycle
Then I realized I was sitting duck on the middle of the road
So I quickly ran to my bike and pull it over to the side
I don't feel much regret
Just abit dissapointed with my jeans torn out a little
It was my new jeans dammit!

I start to check my bike condition
Still can be started, but I find it hard to shift it neutral
All the spectators was surprised to see that I was fine, despite it was a very rough landing
I was surprised myself
I don't feel bad about what happened, except for my jeans -_-
Lucky for me no other vehicle ran over me just I had the rough landing
That would be veryyyy badddd

First off, I called my dad. At that time, I just hope he won't get angry at me...

Few Modification : Apido Turtle

Again, it's about my FZ
I just become a bit hype about getting my first bike
Seeing the bike is classifide as "naked"
I can do modification as in "make-up" as much as I want
So this is how my bike looks like before modification
With stock windshield...And I did changed the side mirror because the original side mirror has lack of visibility. It may cause serious problems
After 1 month fresh, I did add undercowl and fork cover for bulkier body
Few stickers, tank pads, rim lining, and few others.
So this holiday, as I have planned, I want to install Apido Turtle headlamp, which cost me Rm135.
My friend help me brought somewhere at Batu Pahat.

There are few peoples changed to this headlamp. Firstly, it is big, fits with FZ which has smaller headlamp originally. It is also..ummm..stylish? I think. This headlamp is almost looks like headlamp of Aprillia Shiver 750, which stab me in the stomach the most (Wth?). Since the wiring is plug and play, I've decided to bought one. One flaw of this headlamp is, I need to make the bracket myself. I haven't decide who can help me installed it though. I seek help from Johor Fzian Groups. They said I should have bike workshop to install it for me. I was a bit reluctant to have them install because I don't think they know how to do it properly. Plus, they may charge me ridiculously.

However, I have no other choice but to visit a bike workshop that I've been few times before. The workshop is a small branch of Castrol Bike Point. I was a abit nervous though because they have never seen the headlamp before. It takes almost 1 hour to have them install the headlamp. They have a hard time themselves, installing it, which troubles me. What if they charge me more. I don't have extra money in my wallet now. Means I already broke.

 Finally! They have installed it. But something is off. The headlamp looks like a mask for the original headlamp, since the side cover still intact. It makes the headlamp does look weird. But what the heck. I don't like to further things more. So I just packed up and left for home.
 At home, I already felt uneasiness about my bike's new look. I may have regret a bit buying the headlamp. I spent the whole night, thinking about this. My bike look ugleh!! Damn. I might as well ask for help from "otai" of Fzian. Maybe tomorrow. Or maybe I just bring this bike to KL where FZ150i is more recognized. There I can ask the foreman to adjust the headlamp accordingly. 
*p/s the windshield is not attached.

That night, I can't sleep. First off, there is a reason that doesn't concern you readers, and secondly, I feel bad and regret about buying and installing the headlamp. I'm in dilemma, whether should I leave as it is, or revert back to the original headlamp...Or I could adjust it on my own. Wait a minute, could I? Or I will just making things more awful? Or I will achieve the suitable placement of the lamp. 

It was 3am in the morning. What am I thinking? I have no experience or whatsoever and yet, here I am, with screwdriver. unscrewing everything to oblivion. Lol I may have exaggerated the oblivion part. It is more like that to the part where I could not turn back but carry on. I have check the web for better view how the proper placement of the headlamp. Surprisingly, I did it!
To think back, it was kind of easy. But practically, its not at all. Once I unscrewed everything, all I see is wire cable...and alot of it. I checked each of the wire cable carefully to where it leads to. First off, I need to take off the original side cover that hold signal lamp. Just to transfer it to the cover of headlamp itself. That is when I encounter my first problem. To unplug the wire. That evening, the foreman who installed the headlamp, easily unplug the wire and reattach. That little bitchy wire held together so hard that I bled a bit of my fingertips when pulling them off. I spent the next 30 minutes just to unplug the wire, where lastly, I use to pliers and rip them apart. 
Next step is I attached the signal lamp to the headlamp cover. Afterwards, it becomes a bit easier since I know what to do. What I need is just a little brute force to bend, cut and adjust the bracket. Since I want to adjust the headlamp placement closer to the fork, i have to reduce the length of the bracket. I roughly measure how long that I need to reduce the bracket's length. I struggled a lot in bending the bracket to proper adjustment. Lastly, I attached the headlamp. No need for details. And this is how it looks like in the end. It was almost 6am in the morning. Damn....
There are still alot of work to do though. I still need to hide the bracket which hideously visible from the side. I think I just tape it with black masking tape. Simple and easy. There are also ridiculously large gap between the speedometer and the headlamp. I just need to cover it somehow. I rechecked the web to see whether if they have covered it. Some of them have, others not. Using moped bike windshield to cover the gap looks nice too. But I need to rest first. So goodnight.....

Here are few more pictures of my FZ150i
That's all folks :D

My FZ150i

FZ stands for?
I think it's Fazer, not so sure though
But for me FZ is already sounds nice

Well, I just bought this 150cc bike around end of september. Not sure when. I forgot.
With Rm3500 cash in my hand for deposit, which I saves for 1 year++
And installment Rm177 for 4 years
Damn commitment
Not sure if I hated it or not
Just play along, I guess..
So this is my FZ150i, my very first bike as soon I passed my (Not sure if to call riding test or driving test though).

So, why did I chose this bike?
Why did I even bought a bike?
Firstly, as I'm studying away, way from home at Perak, I found that it is hard to rely on somebody else's vehicle.
Sometimes I have to take a cab to go somewhere.
They don't use meters, so the fees quite unreasonably high.
With this bike, I can go anywhere I want.

But Ironically, when I brought this bike to Perak, I don't know where to go. That's because I don't really recognized the roads here...yet..

I bought this bike because, I don't want to be seen as what they call "mat rempit" which is very familiar with young and spoiled brats with moped bike (underbone) or especially, 2-stroke bike. Instead, I want the economic features of this bike, they don't burn fuel as much as bikes in same classes, but in exchange for reduced speed. But it is reasonable as it is. I can rev up the bike to 135km/h, which good enough for me to run along the right lane. This bike uses fuel injection, instead of carburetor. As reliable the carburetor it is, fuel injection is the technology that most of high-cc bikes uses as it is to maximized the fuel consumption efficiency. 
Plus it has large tank! 12 liters. My friend already tested it out, with few addition for fuel efficiency in his FZ150i, ron97 Caltex and minimal speed, he can rev the bike up until 600km! I know right?!
FZ150i is classified as naked bike. Relaxing ride for long distance, not so fast, no so slow, just as nice.
As in naked, I can put some "aurat" on it, as in modifications such as the headlamp, undercowl, or even a fairing of R15, R125S, R6, R1, any bikes you want as long you have the bling bling.

As soon as my bike is purchased out from a bike shop somewhere in Dang Wangi, I have to ride in heavy rain. It sucks when it is raining heavily in KL. My father is a bit worry about me as he never saw me rode a clutch-transmission bike. This is my chance to show him that I am capable of riding this bike, even in heavy rain. At first my father suggested that we send the bike to Perak using delivery service but I am strongly against it, seeing to what happen with my friend's bike, using the delivery, with the scratches everywhere.
In the end, he agrees that I rode the bike myself 300km+ to Perak. Not sure I am being crazy or not, but just go with the flow and enjoy my first riding journey

My destination is Manjung, Perak. Riding there for me, not going to be easy. Halfway is through highway, which is extremely boring that I almost asleep in times during the ride. That's dangerous. My bike still in "break-in" state, so I have to rev it up until RPM 5000 only, approximately around 70km/h. Oh god, I feel like the slowest person in the planet.
The challenge is when I have to take normal roads for around 100km/h which does not have much signboard I can rely on. So I missed, not few, but a lot of turns. 3 hours ride, become 6 hours.
I stopped by at KFC somewhere near Teluk Intan, to take a break and fill up my hungry stomach. Everyone looked at me as I strolled in my riding jacket along, which is awesome lol :P my jacket is awesome, alpinestar, which cost me Rm400++. Alpinestar original? Exactly! Well, semi-original actually...

I inquire directions from miss cashier, which surprisingly fast and glad to drag me outside to show the way to manjung. I feel awesome :p (Alya, don't be mad at me just because I'm so awesome :P Just kidding :D) I followed her direction and voila! I recognize these roads. Still missed a few turns, finally a long road before turning in to Manjung. A long road full of beautiful sight of paddy field. Too bad it wasn't sunset. If not, I stopped awhile, snap a few pictures along for memories. Plus, I can't wait to reach Manjung, so I ride along, non stop, until I reached my "secondary" home.

For now, I already ride to Manjung-KL few times and I have familiarized myself with the roads. Later rides wouldn't be much a problem. 3-4 hours ride. 110-130km/h average speed.

For this semester break, I have a few projects for my FZ150i

Apido Turtle Headlamp - Rm120-150

Master Fuel Control System - Rm430-480

Dragotec Suction Turbo - Rm90

Hope I will have these item installed before semester 4 began.

The Return

Ahhh how long have its been since I updated this blog?
Hmm lets see the last post, its on October
That's weird. I swear I already left this blog longer than that
Continuing- October 2011......Right
Its been like more than a year

To celebrate my comeback (LOL)
I've decided to change few things for my blog
From now on, I want to write in English
So that few readers, just maybe, from outside of Malaysia
Well, I hope so
If there's any then, YOWZA!!!

Err..I guess that's just about that
About the story from before: The longest day from yesterday
I'm don't want to continue
This is because, the story does shows me how pathetic I am
I don't want to push further why
Plus, that story is way way past the prehistoric times
Well its few years back
Not that I didn't remember how it went
Just I don't feel like to write it anymore

So what's new?
I'm still in Unikl MIMET
Furthering my studies in Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding as 2nd year student
There's 2 more year to go
Actually, now it's my study week before facing the final examination next week
The study week is almost done for
And I've never been able to start to study at all -.-

Few reasons there:

  1. Lazy (Of course)
  2. No motivation
  3. Well, I just came back from KL yesterday: Three hours ride on my brand new Yamaha Fazer 150i
Oh and yes! Yamaha Fazer 150i or Fz150i
I've bought this bike a month ago
I did intend to put this story on my blog
But well, i didn't - No time

That's just it
I'll just put my FZ story on the next post

*Hooray for my comeback!!!!

The Longest Day was Yesterday Part 9


Aku ternampak dia seorang shj yg tunggu depan gate tu
Mana pergi lagi 3 orang tu?
Roomate dia lah tu mmg together2 tol haha
Aku pun pergi lah ke gate tu nak jalan saing dengan Alya ke stesen bas
Peh mmg serious first time
Aku ni gelabah sikit kejap2 laju kejap perlahan aku jalan haha
Hahaaaaaa cmni lah lau tkde kereta. Lau ade senang kerja hoho
Tk pyh tido kt MFI, tido kt kereta je depan KIAM
Tapi tk mandi pulak ye....


Aku dah buntu gila dah
Aku tataw nak tido mana dah
So aku kne amik keputusan daring
“Alya, ade kedai mamak tk dekat2 dengan KIAM”
“Ada tapi tk bpe dekat” *Tk ingt pe dia ckp :)
“Oklah, nnti nak ddk situ je sampai pagi tunggu Alya. Mamak an 24 jam”
“Ish bahaya lahh. Malam2 kt sana bahaya”
Dia mmg dah gitau aku malam2 kt sana mmg bahaya, ramai orang asing katanya.
Tapi aku dah desperate, aku sanggup buat pe je, tunggulah berjam2 pun as long aku tk perlu nak berpatah balik
There’s nothing to lose!
“Takpe lah. Boleh jaga diri ni. Takpe2 saya sanggup tunggu kt situ”
“Lelaki pun boleh kne rompak taw”
Kalau lah aku mcm Jason Bourne ke kan best, ade orang nk bunuh dia silat je haha
“Takpe..Ish kalau ade kereta an senang. Tido kt kereta je”
“Ish tak nak mandi ke?”
“Pandai2 lah pakai Febreeze ke haha” *Betul ke eja? -.-
Aku sekarang ni mmg tk dpt nk piker secara rational. Aku tengah bengong kepala otak dari td piker je nak tido mana
“Apa kata tanya budak MFI”
“Budak MFI ramai balik. Dah tanya tadi”
“Ohh ye ke. Cuba la tanya Mukmin”
“Ok fine”


Bodoh gak aku time tu -.-
Desperate lah katakana
So kat bust stand tu aku tunggu lah. Ddk kt sblh dia
Haish memang semua ni first time
Kitorang tk pernah pun sebelum ni. Amat jarang jumpa tu pun tk prnah sampai setengah jam
Bas mini pun sampai
Alya ckp seringgit je gi mana2
Peh syiok gila. Ni kalau bwk pusing2 pun seringgit je berbaloi gila haha
Tempat duduk dia kecik je tapi at least muat lah utk dua orang
Sambil otw ke KTM UKM tu dia tunjuk2 lah itu ini
Mcm tour guide la hehe
Mana pernah jejak kaki kt sini beb
“KL sentral an?”
Okay aku yakin aku tau KL Sentral tu kt mana
Bajet2 tengah2 KL lah tu nama pun Sentral an

Smpai akhirnya di KTM UKM
Alya cuba nak beli tiket kat kaunter eletronik tu sbb kaunter orang beratur panjang
Tapi dia dari tadi cuba masukkan duit asyik kne tolak je
Duit baru pun tk boleh
Ape kena dengan mesin ni -.-
So kitorang beratur panjang gak lolol


KTM sampai. Aku tataw bpe lama dah aku tunggu tapi cm agak lama lah
Tiket tu aku simpan lah dlm poket
Sumpah ramai -.-
Aku bukan tak suka. Tapi mcm2 boleh jadi kat perempuan
Patut lah ade ‘ladies coach’ hoho
So aku ckp kt Alya stay close to me as possible
Aku bukan amik kesempatan le -.-
Since aku dah bwk dia keluar, tanggungjawab nak jaga keselamatan dia jatuh kat aku la
Pape jadi aku yang bertanggungjawab ye dak?
Dalam KTM tu aku tengok siapa kt keliling aku dengan Alya
Kalau aku ternampak mamat indon ke sesiapa yang sewaktu dengannya
Diorang ni bukan boleh percaya sangat
Aku mintak Alya alihkan kedudukan dia biar aku yang gantikan
Kalau boleh dia kne ddk kt rapat ngn dinding la biar tkde orang kacau
Dlm KTM mmg ada je lah orang amik kesempatan
Perangai mcm anjing -.-

Kat atas pintu KTM tu aku tengok lah peta laluan KTM ni
Haishh lama gak KL Sentral ni. 7-8 stesen gitu
Gerak dah lembab cm lembu
Tension aku diri lama2 dlm keadaan cmni


Haa sampai juga KL Sentral!
Mati2 aku ingat KL Sentral tu dekat AvenueK tu
Selalu aku turun situ je
Sini sumpah aku tk pernah pegi
*Korang nak gelak, gelak lah. Aku mmg buta KL. Yelah aku orang JB ye dak?
It’s time to improvise~
