The Sky’s No Limit | Skyteam Bongo 125 | Skymirror

No big bikes. No scripts. No directors, no make-up artists. No boxes to check. And that; is a kind of freedom. One minute we were tourists and the next minute we were a tourist attraction. The cameraman was at some point the subject.

Every once in a while, it’s good to throw away the rulebook and make a new game. Whether it’s the expectations and ‘standards’ of the biker image, or the video production handbook; the rules we make become our limitations.
We rode away from the ‘serious biker’ character. Swapped the Enduro for a “monkey-bike”, left the riding jackets and safety gear behind. Threw out all the textbooks just to see if we could learn something new.

And we did. We learned that small bikes can also mean big adventures. The Skyteam Bongo 125 is so fun-sized it’s ….fun. Stress-free kind of fun. Bike stuck in the mud? Just lift it out. Can’t ride across the ocean? Just throw it on the boat. A 125cc too small to travel long distances? Just load it up on the back of the pickup truck. All the things we wouldn’t have managed with an Africa Twin. As much as the consensus is that big bikes can go further than smaller ones; there are places that they just can’t follow.

It’s more than that though. It’s about context. A fun-sized bike creates a different feel altogether. It prevents you from taking things too seriously and has a tendency of laughing in the face of all that is ‘proper’. It encourages you with its lack of expectations, to be a little silly without any shame involved. After all, you have to live a lil’ crazy to stay sane.

A big shout-out to our pal Reizo Zen – Malaysia’s Michael Jackson Tribute Artiste, for the fun times.

OTOMOTO | WHATEVER YA’ WANT | CMC | XY400 SC400

It’s our first ride video & we’ve got Nurul Alis to go tearing up the back roads with.

The CMC XY400 & SC400 brings you back to a time when motorcycling was raw, daring & really fun. No ABS, No traction control, no computer, no digi-squat… No worries!

Like Alis says, you’re gonna tear it up anyway and customise it just the way you like it. So this is the bike to do Whatever Ya Want with and yeah, just go wherever ya’ want.

O yeah, kudos to Alis for hooking us up with these mean machines.

OTOMOTO | Go Anywhere, See Everything! Honda CB500XA

So you want to get on a bike and just go anywhere? see everything? The Honda CB500XA kicks up an quick adventure out of the city and into backyards for some real good drip coffee, sand roads and clear blue open skies.

Thoughts,

Just loving the versatility of this nimble little adventure bike. Enough power to the wheels to keep your imagination going on where you could possibly bring this bike. You don’t really have to think too hard with a throttle this friendly. No sore bums too after riding the sand mine roads that we found by accident. I’d say this is a “wheel it out of the porch and ride” kinda bike. Yup definitely going to go anywhere and see anything with this one.
