(note: this entry was made in December 2015… hehehehe)
Could not remember the details, but (yet again) Capt. Azizi mooted the idea to balik kampung… and checking that my calendar was free, I mentally agreed.
And there we were, after Friday prayers on 26th September 2014 – Capt. Azizi, Rik, Idrus and yours truly – met up at BhP after Gombak toll plaza after overcoming some hurdles. Hurdles? Yepp… you read it right. Rik has been without a bike for a while after selling off his Kawi Versys 1000. Azizi had made made a deal with Rasniaga to “test ride” a R1200GS. Azizi himself rode his GSA which he bought from Rasniaga on this trip.
However, when Rik went to the shop to pick up the bike, it had some mechanical problem that could not be resolved. Luckily Idrus was willing to ride two up on his KTM900SM… hehehe…
And so, there we were – two adventure touring bikes versus my old trusted sports R1… some people say a mismatched pack… but who cares??? We ride what we ride. yeah? 🙂
Anyway…. here are some pictures of our stops..
Since we left KL quite late in the afternoon, it was already dusk when we passed Gua Musang. We arrived Machang sometimes around 9.00pm (or maybe a bit later). Stopped for dinner after exiting the Kuala Krai-Kota Baru roadway at the”Kedai Sup” along the Machang-Tanah Merah road just around the corner of that exit.Since I will be going back to Besut, Azizi to KB and Rik+Idrus to Pasir Mas, we parted ways after the dinner. I however, made another stop to meet up Farabi, a friend whom is living in Machang.

But mostly its a slow and steady ride….

And, that my friends, is about it. Not much “happenings” (= safe). But as always, it was a swell and meaningful outing.
