What better way to spend the Deepavali long weekend than to ride with friends? And for this long weekend, I took my trusty BMW G650GS Sertao up to Kellie’s Castle and enjoyed the refreshing cool air of Cameron Highlands!Continue reading “Deepavali Ride to Cameron Highlands”
It was the long weekend and we took the opportunity to ride!
In prep of our big ride coming up next month end, we wanted to use this 3-day ride to test our bikes and our resilience to long saddle hours. And so we planned for a 3-day ride round Peninsular Malaysia!
The original plan was to ride from Kelantan Lane in Singapore to Kelantan in Malaysia. To make the ride a little bit more interesting, we’ve decided to take the East Coastal roads of Peninsular Malaysia.Continue reading “Deepavali long weekend trip around Peninsular Malaysia”
I returned to Air Terjun Harmau Berjermu – or Tiger Waterfall. This time, I didn’t ride alone. 6 of us had planned to travel the 50km of unpaved road to camp inside the jungles of Peninsular Malaysia. And our reward? The beautiful Tiger Waterfall.
We started our journey at 6am. But as we took a leisurely pace, which included a stop at McDonald’s for breakfast and another stop at a nearby local supermarket to purchase some last minute supplies, we managed to arrive at the entrance of the trail only at around 1115h – almost midday.Continue reading “Camping at Tiger Waterfall”
What better way to use my new-found off-road riding skills than to go for an actual off-road ride?
Today, I head in to Air Terjun Harimau Berjermu – or Tiger Waterfall. It’s an approximately 100km of off-roading for a round trip into the waterfall and back out.Continue reading “Day Trip to Air Terjun Harimau Berjemu”
We rode up to Krabi! It’s always nice to go on road trips with friends.
As I’ve been pretty tied up with work lately – sorry, no writeup, only pics.Continue reading “4D4N Group Ride to Krabi”
And so we begin our long ride home. While there was no cargo space from Chiang Mai to Bangkok, we were hopeful that there was space available from Bangkok to Hat Yai. Thing is, we didn’t want to risk riding into Bangkok and getting stuck in the world-famous traffic jam only to find out otherwise. So as we headed south, we turned into Nakhon Pathom – a stop just after Bangkok and tried our luck.Continue reading “Riding up to Mae Hong Son – Day 10, 11 & 12”
DAY 8, 20 DEC (THU) – HANGING OUT AROUND PAI
We booked a half-day local tour to save ourselves from too much riding. 330 THB, or approx SGD12 – things are really inexpensive here in Thailand!
But first, we rode up to Yun Lai Viewpoint to watch the sunrise.Continue reading “Riding up to Mae Hong Son – Day 8 and 9”
DAY 5, 17 DEC (MON) – MAE SOT to MAE HONG SON
Today, we travel to Mae Hong Son. Mae Hong Son is the name of both the province and a town. But before we head to MHS, we did a short detour to the Thai-Myanmar border.Continue reading “Riding up to Mae Hong Son – Day 5 to 7”
We’ve been planning and talking about this trip for almost a year! Mae Hong Son – somewhere in the northern region of Thailand – always has a special place in every motorcycle rider’s heart. With beautiful roads, amazing scenery and 1864 of fun-packed twisty bends to negotiate, it’s motorcycling Nirvana.
The Mae Hong Son loop typically starts from Chiang Mai, and most people work the loop clockwise as the roads starts of relatively easy, and gets progressively more challenging. It connects Chiang Mai to Doi Inthanon, to Mae Cheam, Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Son, and Pai, before ending up in Chiang Mai. And while I’ve done it in back in 2016 on my Pulsar 200NS, this time, I’m doing the loop with company. 7 friends rode up from Singapore to northern Thailand over 12 days and had a blast of a time!Continue reading “Riding up to Mae Hong Son – Day 1 to 4”
We extended the National Day holiday with an additional day of leave to go for a 4D3N Ride and Camp trip to Bukit Frasers, Cameron Highlands and Penang! Here’s how we spent the 4D3N in 8.5mins.
