It was the long weekend and we took the opportunity to ride!
In prep of our big ride coming up next month end, we wanted to use this 3-day ride to test our bikes and our resilience to long saddle hours. And so we planned for a 3-day ride round Peninsular Malaysia!
The original plan was to ride from Kelantan Lane in Singapore to Kelantan in Malaysia. To make the ride a little bit more interesting, we’ve decided to take the East Coastal roads of Peninsular Malaysia.
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!
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.
