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.

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!

Sunday Morning Ride to Kluang

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.

The working railway station in Kluang.

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”

Sunday Morning Ride to Mersing

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.

We took the scenic coastal route towards Mersing.

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”

Sunday Morning Ride to Zhong Cheng Durian Farm

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.

The scenery around the plantation.
The plantation owner greeted us and helped us select the durians.

Sunday Morning Ride – 19 bikes to Sedili

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!

Sedili soft-boiled eggs served in a coffee cup!

Sunday Morning Ride to Mersing and Kluang

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.

Today’s route – JB-Mersing-Kluang-JB
Beautiful morning weather.

Group Ride to Gunung Pulai Waterfall

Five CB400X’es, an NC750X, a Xj6 Diversion and a Triumph Street Triple – I’ve officially joined the “big boys club” – a team of Class 2A and Class 2 bikes on a Sunday morning ride. Today, we head to Gunung Pulai waterfall.

En-route to Gunung Pulai Recreational Park, we past Pekan Nanas. The morning view was so breathtaking that we just had to stop for photos!

Lining up our bikes for a photoshoot was really hard work!
That’s me waiting for the rest to come over from the other side of the road.
