Hey Stealthpilot, I live in SG and am up for that! I know there are lots of plantation roads in JB but not sure what you had in mind. I have a Vstrom. Drop me a line.

What kind of bike are you looking for? Craigslist is not good here for it but there is a site 88DB that has a lot of local bikes for sale.

Thanks for the replies guys. I am certain there are a lot more of us here cuz I have seen ADV stickers on bikes here.

I am sure all of you will agree with me that we bikers see no boundaries. We only see boundaries when there are securities and safety issues.

Hi Xomaman, the east coast have nicer roads all the way to Thailand but was told there are stretches of shorter stretches on the west as well. Let's be adventurous and find time to explore some of these routes.

Hi mhutch, congrats on your achieving your license. We have some very resourceful biker friends. Just sound it out and I am sure we will find you one in no time.

Drop me an sms with your contact and I shall message you for rides. My number is 94503960. See you real soon!

Hey Stealth, great idea starting this thread. New to adventure riding but keen to explore Malaysia with you guy's, will sms contact number. Have done Malacca by road etc but all pretty tame and was planning to head other side to explore Mersing, Deseru and Kota Tinggi area. Appears to be a minor coast road, some maps show all the way, others don't, from Tenggaroh to Kuala Sedili which looks interesting.
Re mhutch search for bike; you've probably found these by now but try http://www.singaporebikes.com/

or

http://main.slackriders.com/Forums/v.../start=15.html

both have bikes for sale.

Cheers.

Which month do you plan on coming? I would recommend coming around the Songkla(Water Festival) period. That way, your wife gets to feel the New Year Festivities again.

I got my 1st dual purpose bike in April... a red Cagiva Gran Canyon...
Actually I bought it to do a trip up north to Thailand, Cambodia and Laos...

I used to ride up often to Malaysia via the trunk roads (East Coast) to Mersing, Kuantan, Gua Musang, Kota Bahru, Grik Highway (a must for all riders)... there are more of such wonderful roads with light traffic ...

I hate the North-South Highway ... puts me to sleep... i only use it if I've to rush back home... otherwise I give it a miss if possible...

At the moment I can go for rides on Sat or Sun... give me a call at 92702073

Hey the Cagiva is a good size bike, I would like to hear what you think of it. I don't know the east coast backroads at all, but I have been there a few times and the roads were nice, I was wanting to venture off more but not sure how lost I would get....I will SMS you my number the weekends are good for me too.

I was thinking the same thing so I took a week off from work last month and rode to Koh Samui and back by myself. The ride on the North/South was an ass burner and like Sankar73 says was a sleeper. It took me two days each way and that gave me three days on the Island.

The best riding I have done in Thailand has been up past Chiang Mai but that was on rented bikes. I have heard of people riding to Hat Yai and putting their bikes on the train but that would still take days to get up there. Renting might be an option when you factor in the cost of getting your own bike up there but a lot of the rentals there are clapped out.

If anyone here has shipped their bike up to northern Thailand before I would like to hear the different ways they have done it. A private hire truck would be nice (ship the bikes up then fly there) if there were several of us, but no idea if that would be worth the cost or not.
