Ok folks, looks like im migrating to malaysia and im not sure what to do with my bike.
Is anyone here from malaysia and can tell me if they sell R1's over there?
If not then I guess Ill be shipping my baby with me (hopefully it wont cost me an arm and a leg)
I have been over to KL a few times. They do have lots of little bikes but u do see the odd supersport. They have a big sportsbike community down there especially out at the Sepang F1 Circuit where they do heaps of track events.
Er - unfortunately it will cost you an arm and leg. R1s go for anywhere between 80 to 100 Malaysian Ringgits (that'll be 23K US to 28K). You could pick a used one for about 50 to 60k. Shipping your bike in - that a spiderweb of red tape and large excise duties.
Ths is a good start for a Malaysian biker website: http://www.msportbike.com
A lot of the expats seem to get by by buying from Singapore. Not too sure on how that works but its heaps cheaper.
On the plus side you get trackdays in Sepang, or you could go about 300km down south to Pasir Gudang where the Singapore guys go to.
Sepang Circuit, genting highlands, cemeron highlands....They have wonderful corners...Cemaron Highlands......Over 400 corners and >1 hours of fun...either up or down...
Visit there every year......600km from my home Singapore.....Yeah....
