Sunday Morning Ride to Koref Desaru Leisure Farm

We had intended to head to Sedili for some soft-boiled eggs served in a coffee cup this Sunday Morning. But we not only ended up NOT having any soft-boiled eggs, but we also discovered a nice hangout place in Desaru – the Koref Desaru Leisure Farm!

The Honda ST1100, VFR800X and the R1200GS started the journey on Saturday morning, while the XJ6 Diversion, Super 4 and the F700GS made their way up towards KL in the evening.

Of Cows and Horses – The BMW R1200GS/A

Ever since someone planted the visual of a R1200GSA association with a cow in my mind, that image kinda stuck there. And since I have the R1200GS and not the GSA, I figured that I have that small window of opportunity to alter that mental image before someone else injects another visual…. LOL!

R1200GSA = Cow
R1200GS = Horse!

DIY $3.50 Exhaust Header Rust Removal

After quite a bit of use, the once-shiny stainless steel exhaust headers on the BMW R1200GS is beginning to look a little dated. Thick brown-black crud and rust has collected on its surface and looks like it’s slowly eating into the metal. I’ve seen some YouTube videos on an inexpensive homemade solution to rust removal….

$2.50 for the bottle of Harpic, and $1 for the Scotch Brite sponge pad.

Yes – Harpic! That magical toilet cleaner also works great on the stainless steel exhaust headers! Continue reading “DIY $3.50 Exhaust Header Rust Removal”

Sunday Morning Ride to Linggui Reservoir

This week, we head to Linggui Reservoir! It’s a short 1hr ride to Linggui. But to access the reservoir’s entrance, we had to travel through a short off-road section. The entrance was locked and guarded, and although we didn’t get to see the reservoir itself, we had some fun exploring the area.

GS playground ahead!
Thankfully, the track was dry.

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.

Sunday Morning Ride to Pekan Nanas and Durian Plantation

This Sunday morning, we head to Pekan Nanas for a photoshoot (I needed a banner pic of my bike for this blog) and then to a short off-road section to Zhong Cheng plantation. The weather was beautiful this morning – with heavy cloud cover and just a tad drizzle to keep all of us cool.

Lining up our bikes against the amazing backdrop of Pekan Nanas.
Beautiful biking roads!
