Sunday Morning Ride Dirt Ride – 3 GS’es and 4 Scramblers

In celebration of Siu Hon’s recent purchase of his Suzuki DR200SE, we’ve decided to head to some dirt trails for this Sunday Morning Ride!

You see, Siu Hon got a new (to him) DR200SE on Friday. It happened so quickly. We went to view the bike in the evening, and within a 2hrs, he took the keys and the bike home!

Sorting out the sale and purchase.
Taking the bike home the very same night!

SMR – Riding the UCDP “Novice” Trail

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!

The quirky dirt team.

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.

The Cutesie Team – a 1983 Vespa, a Honda C90 Cub, and Grom.
The Diversion that could!

Taking the Little GS on its First Ride Out

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!

Stopping for a photo shoot.
