Vesak Day was a public holiday in Singapore, and a couple of us decided to hit the dirt trails of Malaysia. It was an exhausting but exhilarating day riding through the plantation trails.
What better way to spend the holiday than to hit the trails of Malaysia!Continue reading “Labour Day Ride – Trails!”
I took my Sertao out for a ride this #SunMorningRide. It was unplanned for me, as I gatecrashed an off-roading excursion organised by the guys ARS Off Road. But it sure was a fun, fun day!
Thank you guys for having me!Continue reading “A Day Off-Roading in Bandar Penawar”
We couldn’t get enough of dirt riding fun in Ulu Choh, and so we planned to head back there again. This weekend, we decided to attempt some of the trails instead.
I found a GPX trail in Wikiloc called “UCDP Novice Route”. Novice, right? Should be easy peasy… right? We were so wrong!
Arriving at Ulu Choh Dirt Park, we were a quirky bunch of riders that somehow look misplaced in a dirt park. Yes, the G650GS and the Yamaha XTZ with knobbies are somewhat at home here. Then there are the heavy adventure bikes – the R1200GSA and the Tiger 800 XCX. The Diversion with its street tires was obviously not the most appropriate machine here. And then there’s the cutesie bunch – the small, ultra-lightweight class – a 36year-old Vespa, a probably about as old Honda C90, and the midget Honda Grom, all gathered for some off-road trail fun. But what all these bikes have in common, is a rider with an adventure spirit and a can-do attitude.Continue reading “SMR – Riding the UCDP “Novice” Trail”
We loved the dirt so much that we’re back in Ulu Choh! This time, we head there in the morning – while it’s still cool. Last week’s visit in the peak of the noon’s heat was a bad idea. I was overheated, dehydrated and throughly exhausted. And this time round, we went as a bunch of learning noobs and had some really silly fun!Continue reading “Ulu Choh Dirt Park #2 Sunday Ride”
Today, we head to Ulu Choh Dirt Park. I’ve heard a lot about the place, but have never been there. So, it’s pretty exciting. And since my BMW G650GS Sertao had dirt tires fitted, I took that instead of the R1200GS.Continue reading “Ulu Choh Dirt Park Sunday Ride”
Ah! Today, the big fat red girl meets her smaller, slimmer, but equally pretty white sibling. And so, the GS siblings meet for the first time.
She’s beautiful, graceful, and just does everything so well. And many a times when admiring her gorgeous looks while sipping a cup of coffee from a near distance away, I’ve caught her posing for fans who instinctively whipped out their iPhones to capture a selfie while standing beside her. She’s not only a looker, but the R1200GS LC is an excellent all-rounder and is superbly comfortable on long distance mile munching tours.
But she and I share a common challenge Continue reading “Big GS Meets Little GS – The BMW G650GS Sertao”
As if last week’s dirt riding with Dirt State wasn’t enough, we headed to the trails again this week. Only this time, with our very own bikes!
I’ve always loved Sundays – especially Sunday Morning Rides! Today, we explore some of the off-road trails near Linggiu Dam. We last visited Linggiu in April this year and noted some of the nearby trails. They looked interesting enough to make us come back for some Sunday Morning Fun!
