VERY RARE: World War II German Military Motorcycles

I met this guy and his WWII German military motorcycles while he making immigration and custom clearance at Immigration, Custom, Quarantine and Safety Complex (ICQS) Sungai Tujoh, Miri Sarawak. Very rare to see on the road. For your information, he travel around the world with this motorcycle. Next destination is Brunei and then to Sabah. Good luck and cheers for him.


I am not very sure what model it is, forgot to ask him

I don't think it is the same. But look-a-like. This is one of the German military motorcycle 

Long Distance Driving Tips

Here I would like to share with you some very important tips to make sure the smoothness of your journey, based on my own experience driving on long distance.

What you should change?
  • Engine oil, oil filter, air filter (if clogged), fuel filter, sparkplug,  water pump and timing belt (if it nearly reached the running mileage), wiper blade if necessary.
What you should check
  • Battery acid level, Radiator reserve tank and wiper tank water level
  • Power steering, Clutch and brake fluid level
  • Any leak at the engine bay, and brake fluid at the wheel hub
  • Brake pad (front wheel), brake shoe (rear wheel), brake piston bushing
  • Tire alignment, balancing and thread tickness
  • Tire and spare tire inflated properly, lug nut spannar, triangle reflector and car jack
  • For old vehicles; check the alternator output voltage, radiator water hose, water hose T-connector (if using PVC type), wheel bearing
  • Spare fuse
  • Wiper blade
  • electronic devices such as headlamp, rain light (small light), brake light, turn signal and hazard light.

What you should bring along
  • Tool box
  • Water (in bottle or gallon)
  • Spare headlamp bulp and other bulp
  • Towing rob
  • Handpump/compact air compressor
  • Torch light
  • Something that can be used to defend yourself if something bad happen and never misused it. Keep it where you can reach it on the spot such as next to your car's door step (steering lock, medium size wooden/rattan stick) but do not bring machetes/samurai sword. Your vacation could be ended in jail.
Rattan stick-for self defend. can be found  at Night market for RM10-15  each

DIY: Replace Kancil's Seat with Daihatsu Mira's Seat

As we all knows (Kancil users), the seat sponge for Perodua Kancil is a little bit hard and not very comfortable. Because of that, I decided to change my stock seat to a used seat taken out from Daihatsu Mira model, imported from Japan; a lot of variation to choose from L2, L5 series, mostly come with soft sponge. You can found it at the used auto-parts shop (halfcut shop) with price range from RM450 - RM700 depends on the type and conditions of the seat. I choose L200s Gold Traxx seat. It is a semi-bucket seat, and got soft sponge that suit everyone driving needs.

Semi bucket Daihatsu Mira Traxx seat
Two-seater rear seat, divided with soft bump at the middle.
So here i want to share with you on how to install it by yourself, in other word Do-It-Yourself (DIY). Actually it is very easy to do this, just plug and play. Tools needed only ring wrench size 12 and 10.

We start from removing process, I suggest you remove rear seat first so that more space for you to remove front seat. For rear seat, there were two screws located at the rear leg room, and another two screws located behind the seat. You can easily find it by folding the rear sit. Refer to the picture below, I marked it in red. For the front seat, just removed 4 screws for each seat. two at the front and another two at the back of the seat. All together 12 screws removed using ring wrench size 12.

Really comfortable with this seat

Then, installation part of the Mira's seat. All the screws position are the same with stock seat. But for my Mira seat, It was taken out from 2-door Daihatsu Mira L200s where the rear seat is unfoldable type. So I have to remove the rear seat folding's lock on both side by using ring wrench size 10. Picture above are my Mira's seat.

Rear seat folding lock
For your information, Daihatsu Mira L500 (google it for picture) rear seat a little bit small compared to Perodua Kancil's seat. So before you install it, you need to send it to the sofa repair shop to extend the sponge length about 2 inches on the left and right. Then it can be fitted nicely in your car. For the front seat, just plug and play. This is used item, make sure to wash it first.

That's all and feels the different.

------------ENJOY SMALL--------------

Folding Bicycle

Hi, I just want to share with you my bicycle, a folding bicycle actually. Because i don't have a big car to bring mountain bike anywhere, so i decide to buy this bicycle. It can be folded and put at the rear seat of my Perodua Kancil and take evening cycling at the Miri beach. I was not very sure where it was made, but I don't mind about that. As long as I enjoy riding it, that is enough. So these are the pictures.

You can adjust the seat and handle as high as you want, until your feet hanging.

Folded into two. It takes less than one minutes to fold it like this

Front and rear shock absober


Cycling is good for your health. But, safety must come first. Equipped your bicycle with basic safety features such as front and rear light, helmet, long pant and shoes. Because this is a folding bike not a mountain bike, knee and elbow pad i think is not necessary as folding bike not suitable for rough terrain. But stil you can use it as accidents can happen anywhere.

General Information & Tips

Check Engine Oil
For a smooth ride, change your engine oil regularly. Normally engine oil should be changed after 5000kms or three month; which one comes first. This will prevent engine damage due to low oil pressure/levels and debris running throught the system. It also helps the engine maintain a low fuel consumpation.

Check Tyres
Check you tires with a professional if the tires are still safe for use. Make sure it inflated properly and in good condition. Low tread tire can cause you loose control of the vehicle during cornering and braking especially in wet road. Get it rotated regulaly to make sure it wear evenly and can be use last longer.

Check Brakes
Check the brake when you notice a lack of firmness and if you have to push the brake pedal to the floor. The brake liquid levels may be low because of the leaking, or the brake pads are getting thin. Replace or just resurface the disc rotor if the steering wheel shaking or vibrates.

Check Radiator coolant
Radiator coolant is a liquid to absorb the heat from engine block and transferred to the radiator aluminium fin before it cooled by the radiator fan or incoming air. Lack of coolant in the radiator or cooling system will cause engine to overheat. Always check the coolant level  in the resevoir tank is between minimum and maximum levels before a long journey. Do not attempt to open the radiator's cap when engine is hot. Let the engine cool before refill the coolant.

Check Signal Light
Most of us will not realized when one of our car's signal light burn. Actually there is a tip here on how you can detect when car's signal light burn while you are driving. Take a look at the turn signal indicator in the dashboard. In normal situation, when you turn the switch to the left/right, the turn signal indicator will blink once in a second followed with relay sound (tik-tik-tik-tik). But if the turn indicator indicator blink faster than normal, for example twice or triple in a second, that's mean one of the turn signal bulb is not working.

Blogger CNAME Error: "We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 32"

After 10days buying my new domain name for my blogger blog through GoDaddy.com, finally on 01.11.2012 my blog successfully directed to WWW.LOWISSLOW.COM. In that period, an error occur when trying to use my new domain name to my blogger blog. I send emails to GoDaddy.com support center asking for help, but none of the emails could solve my problem on error message "We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 32" in the blogger setting.

The problem is actually about the verification code given by blogger as a 2nd CNAME to be put in the GoDaddy.com DNS Setting to verify the ownership of the domain name. The error message above occur because the 2nd CNAME given by blogger cannot be saved in the GoDaddy DNS setting just because of one very small matter. Lets see what happen below.

When I trying to register my new domain name with blogger in the SETTING-PUBLISHING-ADD A CUSTOM DOMAIN-INSTRUCTION SETTING, click on the radio button "on top-level domain" , then you will directed into one page that contain your blog's 1st and 2nd CNAME. The instruction should be as below. Bring your attentions to the yellow text that is the 2nd CNAME.

CNAME
Add two CNAME records. For the first CNAME, where it says Name, Label or Host enter "www" and where it says Destination, Target or Points To enter "ghs.google.com" . For the second CNAME, enter "THXXXXZOR74O" as the Name and
"
gv-6GPJNCGBRRSA5AH5MSXXXXXXXXXXPY4MNOKZMVQQS5UBLJ7ONU2Q.domainverify.googlehosted.com." as the Destination. See our detailed instructions on providing CNAMEs for various registrars. If yours isn't listed, or if you run into other difficulties, contact your registrar directly and they can help you out.


Ok, here i make it easy for you to refer. Both this CNAME must be there inside GoDaddy.com DNS setting. Click HERE on how to create CNAME records in the DNS setting. The first CNAME should be already in the DNS setting once you register your blogger domain with GoDaddy. Click HERE for this step. Should be no problem with the 1st CNAME. The problem here is the 2nd CNAME (verification code).


1st CNAME
Name/Label/Host                           Destination/Target/Points to
www                                                ghs.google.com

2nd CNAME
Name/Label/Host                           Destination/Target/Points to
THXXXXZOR74O                       gv-6GPJNCGBRRSA5AH5MSXXXXXXXXXXPY4MNOKZMV 
                                                      QQ S5UBLJ7ONU2Q.domainverify.googlehosted.com.

As i mention before, this 2nd CNAME must be located in the DNS Setting-CNAME(Alias) box. If you copy and paste this (2nd CNAME) code into the DNS Setting-CNAME(Alias), I am very sure you will get this error message "Your zone file can't be saved until all errors are fixed." when you are trying to save this setting as picture below.

This picture is for example only

 Without this 2nd CNAME in the DNS Setting-CNAME(Alias) box, you will get this error message in the blogger setting"We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 32" as picture below.

This picture is for example only


Solution for this is, refer to the Destination/target/points to of the 2nd CNAME. The codes given by blogger is
gv-6GPJNCGBRRSA5AH5MSPVRG2GOFQDPY4MNOKZMVQQS5UBLJ7ONU2Q.domainverify.googlehosted.com.

Now what you should do is changed the "gv" into "GV", and remove "." just after "com" (refer to in red highlighted in red above).After you edit this, it should be like this"

GV-6GPJNCGBRRSA5AH5MSPVRG2GOFQDPY4MNOKZMVQQS5UBLJ7ONU2Q.domainverify.googlehosted.com

Now, you can save this setting and make sure this code is there in the CNAME(Alias) box after you save it. If not there, try and try again. Usually they will ask you to wait 1-48hours before you can update your blogger setting with your new domain. But as for me, I can update my blogger setting with my new domain just after I save the DNS setting. My subdomain blog www.lowisslow.blogspot.com directed to www.lowisslow.com on-the-spot!! 

Just because of "gv" and "." i am wasting 10 days of 365days of my new domain validity..
