In celebration of Siu Hon’s recent purchase of his Suzuki DR200SE, we’ve decided to head to some dirt trails for this Sunday Morning Ride!
You see, Siu Hon got a new (to him) DR200SE on Friday. It happened so quickly. We went to view the bike in the evening, and within a 2hrs, he took the keys and the bike home!Continue reading “Sunday Morning Ride Dirt Ride – 3 GS’es and 4 Scramblers”
First time being pulled over by the Traffic Police, and I kept thinking what I did wrong! Ended up with a nice little surprise from the friendly officer – received a little goodie bag from the handsome looking officer for gearing up in proper riding attire!
Edit: I’ve been receiving numerous requests from curious commenters on what’s inside the goodie bag. So I took a little peek inside, and here goes…
Goodie bag contains: a tankpad protector, a head buff, a pen, a post-it notepad, and a FlashPay cashcard! Thank you TP!
Gear up and Ride Safe everyone!
The iPhone smart phone is kinda smart. Being my primary navigation device on my motorcycle rides, it’s important to keep it juiced up. But sometimes, in heavy rain, it just shuts off its charging function in an apparent bid to protect itself from the extreme moisture at the charging port. And by the time I realise it, the battery level has dropped to below 20% with the phone screaming a low-battery warning.Continue reading “Motorcycle Wireless Qi Mobile Charging”
The durian season is here again! This week, we headed back to Zhong Cheng Durian Plantation, and boy was it crowded!! And for this Sunday Morning Ride #SMR, we have Alex on his BMW F850GS, Sid on his Super 4 Revo, and Siraj & Ruwais on their brand new BMW R1250GS joining us for the very first time! Welcome all!Continue reading “Yet Another Sunday Morning Ride to Zhong Cheng Durian Plantation”
Off-roading is tough. No, and I’m not referring to just the skills required. But it’s tough on the machine too. I’ve had expected this to happen sooner or later – a bike drop, and a mirror breaks.
But what I wasn’t counting on was a broken mirror mount. Yup! I broke the mirror mount on my G650GS Sertao when I took it off-road motocamping last weekend.
And so I went on a quest to search for some off-road worthy mirror replacement. And in the midst of my research, one name kept popping up – the indestructible Doubletake Mirrors.Continue reading “Doubletake Mirrors – The Best Motorcycle Mirrors?”
I returned to Air Terjun Harmau Berjermu – of Tiger Waterfall. This time, I didn’t ride alone. 6 of us had planned to travel the 50km of unpaved road to camp inside the jungles of Peninsular Malaysia. And our reward? The beautiful Tiger Waterfall.
We started our journey at 6am. But as we took a leisurely pace, which included a stop at McDonald’s for breakfast and another stop at a nearby local supermarket to purchase some last minute supplies, we managed to arrive at the entrance of the trail only at around 1115h – almost midday.Continue reading “Camping at Tiger Waterfall”
It was an expected ride. Was planning to just fill up my R1200GS with cheap petrol across the Causeway and head home. But Siu Hon and I ended up linking with Kwong, Julian and Looi on some easy off-roading at the durian plantation!
I think some of the best money spent is on training. After doing the Off Road Level 1 training 2 weeks back, I’m back for the Level 2 course this weekend.
During Level 1, we went through drills such bike balancing, braking, u-turns, and hill descents. My biggest fear was in that steep downhill descent. And I’m back this week to greet it face on – at Level 2 training.Continue reading “Off-Road Training – Level 2”
What better way to use my new-found off-road riding skills than to go for an actual off-road ride?
Today, I head in to Air Terjun Harimau Berjermu – or Tiger Waterfall. It’s an approximately 100km of off-roading for a round trip into the waterfall and back out.Continue reading “Day Trip to Air Terjun Harimau Berjemu”
