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 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”
This Sunday morning, we rode to Kluang for dim sum! And we had 2 new SMR Riders – Colin on his KTM 1290, and Aaron on his MT10. Welcome!Continue reading “Sunday Morning Ride – Dim Sum at Kluang”
Breakfast ride to Pontian wanton mee this Sunday morning followed by a short section of gravel to explore the sea-facing kampungs of Pontian. Always great to spend ride with with fellow ride buddies!

It’s the weekend! And it’s time to ride! This was my first ride out with my new-to-me BMW G650GS Sertao. Now, Sertao (or more correctly, Sertão) means “outback” or “wilderness” in Portuguese. And there’s no place the Sertao feels more at home than in the dirt and backroads! Even more so with the brand new Shinko 804/805 40-60 (off-on road) tires fitted!
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!
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. =)
