I used to zhng my ride too, but it got too expensive to continue, and I found that it added very little to the price I sold my car for when it was time to get another. My other zhng obsession was my mobile phone, and I had more covers for my Nokia 8210 than anyone I knew. My favourite one was a green transparent one that had liquid inside. Combined with the white LED lights that blinded everyone in the cinema when the phone was touched, my 8210 was a sight to behold.
Other than bragging rights to owning the most fanciful bike in the group, I failed to see how he was going to benefit from all the expensive mods, especially the extensive work on the engine and exhaust. HHF wasn't a Pasir Gudang racer-type. In fact, law-abiding HHF was positively gentle with his queen. We lost him during one outing because he refused to break the speed limit to catch up with the rest after missing a green light. And he was riding a beast that could easily hit 100 km/h in 2nd gear!
