Deepavali Ride to Cameron Highlands

What better way to spend the Deepavali long weekend than to ride with friends? And for this long weekend, I took my trusty BMW G650GS Sertao up to Kellie’s Castle and enjoyed the refreshing cool air of Cameron Highlands!

DRZ had carb issues and couldn’t idle properly

We moved off on Friday evening after office hours, and made a 3hr journey up to Hotel 77 in Rawang. Specially chose Rawang as it was near enough to make the night ride not overly uncomfortable and also it’s just about 1km away from the NSHW – which makes it easy to continue the ride up north the next morning.

After Kellie’s Castle and a quick lunch stop, we ascended towards Cameron Highlands.
