Size does not matter to real estate agent Vaune Phan.

The 27-year-old weighs just 45kg, yet she is now riding her 120kg motorbike from Singapore to the Mount Everest base camp in Tibet.

The month-long, 8,000km journey, which started yesterday, will help raise awareness and funds for the Singapore Disability Sports Council and disabled athletes here.

“Since becoming a rider, I have realised that life is very vulnerable. I know of people who got into accidents and became disabled,” Ms Phan said.

Among her friends is Paralympian Desmond Tong, 37, who lost a leg following a bike accident.

LONG-DISTANCE BIKER GIRL: Vaune Phan, 27, has challenged herself with 7500km of tough terrain for a solo charity ride – to Mount Everest! Image: Supplied

SINGAPORE, Malaysia – A trip of more than 7500km is a challenge for any motorcyclist, if the route leads through jungle, swampland and into the Himalayas the trip becomes tough, dangerous and a huge adventure when tackled as a solo ride.Vaune Phan, 27, pronounced “Von“, from Singapore on her medium capacity dual-purpose Suzuki DR 200, describes herself as feminine, yes, but tough and rugged for the ride. Her trip will take her across half of Asia and into the foot hills of Himalayas to the Mount Everest base camp.

After many months of preparation the young woman will start her big adventure later in June. Phan will ride, sponsored by LiquiMoly lubricants, from Singapore via Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, China and Tibet to the Nepalese capital Kathmandu.

Female biker’s rant on rising costs of transportation in Singapore gains traction

A Facebook post by a lady known as Vaune Phan regarding the rising costs of transportation in Singapore has gained much traction.

The post included an artistic photo illustration showing a lady sitting on a horse in front of an ERP gantry. The photo, which was used to illustrate her rant, was produced by Singapore-based photography studio, Lumina Studio.

The photo is labelled with the Chinese phrase, “Bo Bei Chow” (“No Horse Run”), which means a full-proof plan.

First, you plant fcking ERPs every which way we turn. Soon after, you increase the COE price of cars ridiculously high, forcing many to turn to second hand cars. Then you come up with some dumbshit loan scheme that requires min 40% downpayment for a car purchase, making many can’t afford and take the public transport. Then you fine commuters for entering a crowded train. Next, you increase public transport fares for your trains that breaks down every other day. Alas, you turned to raising motorbikes COE to over $3,000.So, shall we start commuting around on animals, like horses, since its the year of the Horse too? Or are you gonna impose a fee on horses too? The picture for illustration.
Damn you govt.

yyy

She Rides Dirty: Vaune Phan

Keep your female-driver jokes to yourself; Vaune Phan is one biker chick that can take you on the track.

We hear you’re into enduro riding. What’s that?

Enduro riding is an off-road endurance type of challenge. We go through different obstacles such as logs, river crossing and things like that. But I don’t do stunts apart from basic jumps because stunt riders start from a young age.

How many bikes do you own?

I have a Suzuki DR200 scrambler (for off-road) and a Ducati Hypermotard (for road use). The latter is too heavy to ride on dirt; it’s like a cross between a scrambler and sports bike.

You have such a manly hobby; are you more girlie when you’re not riding?

My mother thinks I’m really chor lor! I don’t think it makes a difference. Like most girls, I enjoy dressing up — wearing heels and skirts.

How do men react when they find out you’re the real-deal biker chick?

They’d usually start by asking what is the class of my licence. They tend to find me very sporty and adventurous because female riders aren’t very common here.

For the full interview, read the October issue of FHM (#180).
