4D3N Vesak Day Cameron Highlands Ride

Vesak Day – a public holiday in Singapore, falls on a Tuesday. So what better way to celebrate it, than to take the Monday off and go for a 4D3N long weekend ride! Six bikes – divided into 2 teams head up to Cameron. The Honda ST1100, VFR800X and the R1200GS started the journey on Saturday morning, while the XJ6 Diversion, Super 4 and the F700GS made their way up towards KL in the evening.

1000 Corner Malaysia Ride

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.

The 1000 Corner Route – 584km and 12hrs of continuous riding according to Google Maps.

The sgBikerBoy 2016 Trip – Day 47

06 Aug 2016, Saturday. I got a room in the same hotel as Michel and Pim. And after breakfast, we got ready to leave Georgetown, Penang. Michel and Pim will be heading north into Thailand via Sadao. And for me, southbound. And to think about it, when we last met, they were southbound while I was heading north.

We had to take this group shot before we parted! Their two Thai-registered Honda CB500x flanking my Pulsar 200NS.
