buying a bike in Singapore
I gave up on finding a bike rental company in Singapore. Due to changes in traffic regulations it is nearly inpossible to get insurance on a motorcycle if someone in driving it besides the owner of the vehicel.
The companies I had contact with all told me they stopped renting out bikes 'till further notice.
But, not giving up, I contacted the biker community in Singapore and they really helped me out. There was even one guy offering to lend me his bike
After a couple of emails I decided to buy a motorcycle there. Ít seems that the bikes are very cheap there. The same go's for insurance and roadtax. That is, comparing it with Europe.
Insurance is in most cases valid for Singapore and Malaysia. In Thailand you are expected to get additional insurance. I figure that will be not problem when I'm over there. In november it'll be monsoon season so I'm in for a wet surprice, haha. It'll make the trip more of an adventure I hope.
So all's well that end well. I'm flying over there the 2nd of november. Thanks again for all the help!
