MOTOR-PSYCHOS
by TV Smith
15/06/03


I wept profusely and inconsolably every time I listened to a particular public service announcement on radio. The 'ad' that urges drivers to be alert and to look out for a vulnerable motorcyclist whose only hope in life was to get home safely. I cried like a retiring politician because taxpayers' money was wasted in the most unrealistic and misdirected campaign ever. Contrary to the gentle message, the average Malaysian motorcyclist is a raging suicidal psychopath. Amidst the backdrop of the elegant Petronas Twin Towers, more and more motor-psychos are turning the city into a showcase of urban lawlessness and traffic anarchy...

MEMBERS' CORNER

Health Advisory
Dot not under any circumstances get yourself wet. With the slightest hint of rain take shelter under the nearest overhead bridge or flyover. You and your fellow motorcyclists may now occupy up to three-quarters of the road. Remember; staying dry is more important than staying alive.
Road Block
Fashion News
New Mat Motor™ Rainy Season 2003 Collection. Complete riding apparel under the popular Invisible Series now available: Black helmet with black leather jacket, black plastic pants, black shoes & black gloves. Suitable for both night street racing and casual cruising.

Safety Recommendation
Always wear the right shoes for maximum protection and safety when riding. Recommended model (pictured right) feature thin rubber soles for maximum flexing and easy gear change or braking. Side band prevents exhaust pipe scalding and minimal bruising during a crash.

Tips & Tricks
Safety Shoes
• Remove or short-circuit your taillight bulb to prevent easy identification at night.
• Store your only wing mirror in a dispatch bag. Fasten it 50 meters before a road block.
• Traveling with a family of four? Sit the youngest child in the front basket.
During a breakdown, do not call AAM, a mechanic or a tow truck. Just call another motorcycling friend. Tow your   motorcycle back by hooking one leg onto your friend's motorcycle.
• Fastened helmet strap may result in a missed call on your mobile phone. If left un-strapped, you can answer a call   even while in motion.
