Perfect weather, perfect buddies, perfect route, perfect scenery, perfect destination, perfect meal, perfect off-road experience, makes for a perfect Sunday Morning Ride!
After a 2 week hiatus due to family commitments, it was back to Sunday Morning Ride! And this Sunday, we headed to Gunung Berlumut!
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.
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.
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.
It’s Sunday Morning Ride again! Today, we have 2 BMW R1200GS, 1 BMW R1200RS, 2 Honda CB400X, 1 Honda Super 4, and a Yamaha XJ6 Diversion.
We head to Kluang today. The group had actually just been there some 3 weeks ago. I was supposed to join them, but I was confined to bed rest as I had hurt my back back then.
Kluang is the first northbound train station from Johor Bahru, and the Malaysian authorities seem to be promoting it as somewhat of a tourist place. Continue reading “Sunday Morning Ride to Kluang”
This morning, we head to Mersing! 2 DRZ’s, 3 Honda’s and a Yamaha – we met at B-Point for a quick breakfast and headed off towards the eastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
As there was a recent road closure of the main road towards Mersing, Google Maps took us on some amazing winding roads to around the supposedly closed road – and Boy! It was some motorcycle paradise! Continue reading “Sunday Morning Ride to Mersing”
I’m a durian lover! And this Sunday Morning, we ride to Zhong Cheng Durian Plantation! At less than 50km from the Causeway checkpoint, the durian farm is pretty near Singapore actually. And when we arrived, there’s a short 750m or so of dirt track before we reach the plantation.
Last Sunday morning, I rode alone. This Sunday, with a large bunch of friends – some old, some new. I counted 19 bikes. We took a leisurely ride to Sedili jetty. And the highlight of our trip to Sedili?…. Eggs!
Today, I ride alone. Kinda reminds me of my 2-month solo ride – where it was just myself, my motorcycle, and my thoughts. It’s pretty therapeutic actually! Today, I head to Mersing – the gateway to the islands of Pulau Tioman and Pulau Aur.
