    This looks like it could be good. I like the dates, too- 10-13 of April. Good excuse to miss SongKran in Thailand.

    John,
    Doesn't look like the Malasian Expo has any New Bike booths and Stuff more a Malaysian Show and Tell thing. I am Guessing the Singapore thing will be Promoting the Latest and Greatest in Bikes and Gear???
    At least i Hope so as i will be up for going there!!!
    Cheers Ian.

    Have already made a note in next years diary, as mentioned above, can't think of a better venue to miss Songkran.

    Sadly, I have to agree with Ian Bungy.
    There is no new bikes in Msia so to speak, as the big bike market is very very small. The govt impose a [email protected]#$!%^&*-up high tax structure that inflated the price beyond the reach of any bike enthusiast. Many of us piston&gear-heads, ride old bikes (5-20year old!)[:(]. Only the rich-show-off-arm-chair bikers can afford the latest grey imports with special govt issued permits, to park in their garage for the weekend ride to the nearest starbucks.

    Yes, in fact many of us here, will be going for the SPore bike show, hopefully to buy bike gears but more to salivate over the new models (2 wheels & 2 legged[}:)]

    But I am also going to the aime show for lack of superduper things to do...[:D]
