1000 Corner Malaysia Ride

It’s the Easter long weekend! And what better way to spend the long weekend than to take a motorcycle road trip? So that’s what we did! 18 bikes, divided into 3 smaller teams, made our way up to KL and its surroundings for a “1000 Corner Malaysia” ride – inspired by RiderChris’ blogpost.

What started as 18 bikes, ended up with 17 making it up to KL – with 1 rider having to tow his bike back due to a minor accident on the NSHW. Then it dropped to 16 bikes the next day when another rider had to return to Singapore as a family member was hospitalised.

The 1000 Corner Route – 584km and 12hrs of continuous riding according to Google Maps.

DAY 1 – 30 March 2018, Friday

Breakfast at KFC R&R Ayer Keroh.

DAY 3 – 01 April 2018, Sunday

We linked up with Chris from riderchris.com and rode together in the morning.
We wanted to head to Sasaran Beach – also known as “Sky Mirror”. But at RM100 a pop to head out by ferry, we decided to explore the surroundings instead.

I love the colours!
Chris got us special permission to ride up to Altingsburg Lighthouse. We promised that we’d be down real quick.
