To Melaka, 530km round trip – for Dinner!

Siu Hon suggested heading to Melaka for dinner, and since any reason to ride is a good reason! So off to Melaka we headed, and we made that 530km round trip – just for dinner!

We arranged to meet 6:30pm at Petronas, Gelang Patah. But the weather didn’t seem to agree with us. The skies opened before we left Singapore, and poured onto us all before we could even rendezvous at Gelang Patah for the ride up. This however, gave us the perfect opportunity to test some of our recently acquired wet weather gear in prep for our major trip to Northern Thailand in December.

Meet up at Gelang Patah before travelling up north.

As you can see, Siu Hon’s wet weather gear didn’t hold up too well. His waterproof boots turned into a mini aquarium – collecting water that cascaded from his poorly sealed waist area all the way into the boots itself! Eeek!

Sunday Morning Dirt Trail Ride

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!

Nice, compact dirt – nothing too challenging (for now).
Magnificent view from the top.
Loose gravel + big bike = no fun! =(

2D1N Impromptu Ride

It was an impromptu ride. I had taken the Thursday and Friday off work, and had only decided to go for a ride on Wednesday evening. Even in the morning of Thursday when we met at 5am at GP Petronas, the ride plan was still sketchy. And we just made up the plan as we went along!

First stop – Tasik Biru (Blue Lake) of Muadzam Shah!

Facing the blue, blue, VERY blue lake!
The 4 men who were free to ride on a Thursday’s moment’s notice.
We were friendly. They were friendly. We were all friendly. =)

Saturday Morning Ride to Endau Rompin

The weather was beautiful on this Saturday morning, and what better way to spend it than to take a ride? It was only the 2 of us on today’s ride, and we could afford to, well, go a little faster on the road. =)

Eddy and his Street Triple.
Me and my red GS.

Sunday Morning Ride – Off-road Fun Near Linggiu

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!

I was greeted by an absolutely beautiful morning sky just as I crossed the SG-MY border.
Tackling the trails.

Sunday Morning Ride – Some off-road FUN!

We went for some off-road fun this Sunday Morning Ride!

We ran out of ideas on where to head to for our usual Sunday Morning Ride and this was totally unexpected and unplanned as we wandered randomly and aimlessly. Turned out to be a pleasant surprise!

The SMR off-roaders!
