He is part of the legion of motorcyclists who deliver things for your convenience.
Rain or shine, whether delivering fast food or an urgent document, bikers like Mr William Tan Peng Hong (above) dart across the island daily.
It's a job he has had for more than 10 years. Yet, it's not a job for just anybody, he says.
Says Mr Tan, 52, a dispatch rider with Network Courier: "When you ride for a living, it's very different from riding for leisure. You're on the road more and have to be constantly alert.
"We have a deadline, but I always tell myself that it's better to reach the destination later than not reach it all."
In other words, stay cool and don't rush.
On a typical day, Mr Tan delivers parcels, business letters and documents to about 80 destinations.
His fellow riders - 117 in all - at Network Courier handle between 12,000 and 15,000 articles daily.
That's a huge undertaking - one fraught with hazards.
To cater to rider safety and productivity, operations have been streamlined without jeopardising customer satisfaction, says Mr Joel Bala, the company's business development manager.
Riders now operate within smaller areas and get their instructions via SMS.
Says Mr Joel: "We send SMSes instead of calling the riders because we don't want to disturb them while they're riding."
Through these alerts, they are sometimes told to hold all deliveries, especially during bad weather.
It helps, too, that Network Courier's managing director, Mr V. S. Kumar, was himself a dispatch rider.
Mr Tan now has to deal only with deliveries within Balestier and Toa Payoh, compared to the old system, which saw him riding back and forth across the island.
The new system means riders spend less time on the roads.
Nevertheless, Mr Tan says he has a fail-proof way of staying safe while riding - he thinks about his family.
Says the father of two teenagers: "If more motorists think about their loved ones, they will not do anything foolish on the road.
"I'm the sole breadwinner. If anything happens to me, who will support my family?"
While most riders can earn more by doing more trips, Mr Tan doesn't like to "overdo it".
By knowing his limits, Mr Tan claims he has managed to stay accident-free after 27 years of riding.
He knows that the more jobs he takes over from colleagues, the more alert he has to be on the road.
He adds: "I'm always juggling safety and the task at hand as a dispatch rider. But I will not force myself to take extra jobs. If I can't help out with more pick-up requests, I'll just SMS my supervisor."
While the company doesn't limit their riders' desire to earn, each rider's "load" is monitored, says Mr Joel.
"As employers, (we know) it's important to take care of the welfare and safety of the riders because they are the front line," says Mr Joel.
The riders from Network Courier meet for an informal dialogue session each month to discuss any outstanding safety issues.
On the job, Mr Tan wears the unmistakable blue-and-yellow jackets provided by the company.
"The bright jacket, covered footwear and gloves are made mandatory by the company," says Mr Tan.
"It protects us and makes us visible to other motorists."
The rest of his gear - a raincoat, bag for documents, waterproof plastic bags - is stashed inside a box at the back of his 125cc motorcycle.
Mr Tan sticks to his game plan every day he rides - it's his riding style not to speed.
Mr Tan also doesn't answer his mobile phone when he's riding. It's against the law to do so.
He also religiously maintains a safe distance from the motorist ahead. This gives Mr Tan "a safe gap to react" if he needs to brake.
"Riders often risk themselves when they don't practise this," he says.
Mr Tan suggests implementing reminders on the road for less safety-conscious riders.
These include digital billboards, radio broadcasts and even SMSes to spread the message of road safety.
He says he has seen far too many motorcycle accidents.
Most of them could have been avoided, he says.
"Some get into accidents because they ride too close to other motorists, or speed and overtake without signalling," Mr Tan says.
"If only they were more patient, other motorists would be able to notice them.
"If a motorist behind me is in a hurry, I just let him overtake. Some people want to be a 'hero', we can't stop them."
