Got the bike organized to go to Kuala Lumpur. Beau from Hellmann in Darwin has been a great help,no problem at all. We organized a Dangerous good certificate and a inspection of the bike and within 2 days the bike is ready to leave for KL.
No crate, no dramas, no worries.
We left Darwin on Wednesday the 7th Jan. on a flight to Singapore, arrived late afternoon and stayed on Geylang Road in a Hotel. Geylang is the red light district of Singapore it's a very happening place. After checking in to the hotel we went for a walk to check out the neighbourhood and find a place to eat, after a short stroll and a few offers ( food and other) we settled on a street corner eatery and enjoyed a great chines meal with a Tiger Beer to wash it all down.
Across the street from the Hotel was a row of shops with " Dance Studio" signs above them and lots of guys hanging around, must be popular to learn how to dance in Singapore ? Hmmmm...........
The next morning we put on our walking shoes and went into town. we started of with Orchard Road, Maggie was in shopping paradise all the big labels and brands are there ( too bad the bike is already full to the max) after a good look around we went on to China Town and then to Raffles Hotel for a Singapore Sling.
China Town, Rafffels an down the river in Singapore
After a long day walking around town we got a taxi back to the hotel, had a meal and colapsed in bed, a 5am start for the next morning was on the list to get on a plane and fligh to Kuala Lumpur.
