Singapore and Bikeless. How long have you stored your bike?

Its been a while since I have posted anything. I recently packed up house in Sydney and moved to Singapore following work. I ruled out shipping the V from Sydney because the total cost of shipping and registering was just too high. Right now the V is sitting in Sydney waiting for me to decide whether to pack it up and store it long term (maybe two years!) or sell it and put the money into a bike over here. I need to spend a little more time here before I can be confident I will stay more than a few months.

I was wondering what was the longest anyone has stored a bike? Is it really worth considering two years if i get it stored properly?

If I get a bike here it would only be for recreational riding as I wouldn't need it for commuting.

Can anyone from Singapore tell me what its like touring out of Singapore on weekends?

Singapore is one $$$ place, its very cheap to tour into Malaysia as food/accomadation is dirt cheap compared to s/pore.

two years seem a long time to store a bike and maybe better to sale.

A versys brought in Thailand would be very cheap but Singapore has some very $$$ rules about bring vehicles in and I think they have a cap on the amount of vehicles allowed in the country unless your prepared to pay some huge premium, from memory they may even have a total limit of the number of vehicles allowed to be owned in the country and you will see that there are not a lot of old vehicles there.
