The Journey Back…

This is the route taken back to Kuala Lumpur.

We started our journey early at 9 am. I joined the convoy back to Kuala Lumpur with five of my friends from Freerider. They are Azlan, Nazeri, Kuchai Pomen, Zack and Ku Ah Lee.

 

We are good to go.

Steady bro Azlan and Nazeri. Pacakkk!!! Me, calculating some loose change back there.

Keropok Lekor with cheese. Marvellous. Stop here if you pass thru Seberang Takir.

Lunch at 3.20 pm………..warggghhh semua sudah lapar.

We continued towards Tasik Kenyir. Tasik Kenyir or Kenyir Lake is an artificial lake located in the state of Terengganu in northeast Malaysia created in 1985 by the damming of the Kenyir River to create the Sultan Mahmud Power Station. It is the largest man-made lake in South East Asia.

We endured heavy rain for 45 minutes or so before we left Tasik Kenyir. From there, we took smaller route Felda Aring towards Gua Musang. It is a small roads where you will encounter big lorries transporting palm oil kernel to the processing factory.

This stretch has uneven roads with potholes, sometimes in the middle of the road. And also a bumpy and dusty roads with gravels flying towards you. Shock absorber of BMW is superb. Steady handling where there is no wobbling or swaying of the bike. ABS kicked in several time helping me in braking.

Quite surprising because my friends keep asking about the rough ride they had. I just replied, BMW is a German engineering- potholes is no problem. Ya… Ya… Ya…we know that 🙂

We caught up with one big group of bikers heading to KL at Petronas Felda Kechau. Time to stretch my back and have some drink.

Finally, arrived at Gombak toll at 1.30 am. No untoward incident happen. Time to say goodbye because we are going to different destination.

Many thanks to Azlan, Kuchai Pomen, Nazeri, Zack and Ku Ah Lee. You are all good riding partner. I enjoyed the ride.

Thanks BMW Motorrad Malaysia. You made my day, at least for three days.
