    Speeding cub chais

    Post by julian on Fri Jul 16, 2010 12:34 pm

    Every time I ride my bike I seem to get over taken by cub chais fairly often. Shocked I normally cruise at 110-120kmh and still get over taken by them. Am I riding too slow or are they freaking fast? Man chics on cub chais too overtake me What a Face

    Any of you guys ride as slow as me?

    I think that's normal. We get to see Kancils and Vivas overtaking BMWs and Merc all the time.
    Try this, next time you're on the road, count every kapchai you overtake vs kapcai overtaking you. You'll feel much better seeing the stats.

    what the heck are you doing cruising 120kmh on the kips!? are u serious?

    ok just kidding... oh well, i take my sweet time whenever im in the mood enjoying good weathers or scenery... i don't see any trouble being overtaken.... im always overtaken by bicycle too lol...

    theres 3 lanes on the highway, the indivudual speed preference differs, just because the vehicle is capable of doing 200kmh doesnt indicate the rider should ride at that speed all the time.... ride safe bro, ignore those dudes, as a zx150 rider, we are prone to threats from many kapcais, just ignore them.

    speaking of which... my speedo has been broken for well over a week.... in which this period, i notice nobody is overtaking me... only me overtaking on the fast lane... bad luck went to kawa today and they're closed... sigh...

    dangerous to ride without speedo lol, keep shifting and without realising it... whoala... final gear @ 10.5k rpm lol.

    hi ya.... I think your bike took too many spills oredi that's why your speedo kaput. Anyway I cruise at 110-120km to enjoy the ride. When wanna shiok sendiri then 140-160km but then like asrolsani says at that speed kecut a bit. the winds would then be too strong blowing my head left and right unless I duck down.

    hmm... wind issues are normal... from my observation, winds coming during mid>heavy traffic is ok, because it is still predictable(eg.passing/being passed by lorry or busses), scariest part is in big highways with minimal traffic... sudden surge of wind out of nowhere lol...

    To add in diffrent perspectives, how fast does a cub chais can go nowdays.
    They seems able to go faster&faster since the days of EX5 dominance. Is it safe to go that fast on a cub?!

    helu...
    Aku nak belajar tulis dalam english ni:)
    In my opinion, in the event there is a small motorcycle with a high-speed beside me. I was smart(buat pandai je:))
    they are not my level , the category distinction. Our bike 150cc. they are not my Rival. I look stupid if they join speeding ....
    Like driving a wira 1.8 GSR testing speeding with the Porsche 911 turbo .... would you crazy enough or stupid enough....think my brother

    safe ride

    who would have expected them to go for a company trip on a USUAL WORKING MONDAY !!! sobs....

    bro.... ex5 = 4k / kawa = 9k
    wira GSR = RM20k / porche 911 = 500k (the cheapest available)

    These 2 are not even a comparison bro ~_~"
    BUT!!! i can tail a 911 turbo with my waja(GSR 1.8 2.8bar boost and many heavy mods...), too bad my speed maxed out at 275kmh, thats where he smoked me further lol...

    helu....
    yep right mr jayjeffrey.different categories different approach:). sometime they forget, keep cool. 1.8 GSR one of the best:). 2.8psi hi boost bro:)... just share, my favourite old school is b8 interplay not 180 but 210:)
    Safe riding:)
