This is my first ride report here and the only reason i'm posting is to say a big thank you to all the inmates here for making me curse my luck every day at work . I've been reading so many RR's here , and there are some truly epic ones ,with fantastic pics and a view of the world and people which i've never got from any conventional media.So here are some pictures of my part of the world and maybe someday i can show it to you personally. Recently i managed to get a few days off from work and an even more difficult task , i managed to get a few days pass from the interior ministry (read wife ). I've been taking day rides all over the place but for the first time ever i managed to get 3 days 2 nights to my self to ride.Oh yeah !!! Compared to the ride reports i enjoy so much this is nothing but i guess you've got to start somewhere.I took a 3D2N ride from ,D1 Kl-Gerik -Banding Lake-Gerik ~ 440km. D2 Gerik - Kuantan via Kelantan and Terengganu ~ 550km. D3 Kuantan - Home ~ 260km.I left home early on Saturday to bright sunshine(very important as its been raining the past 2 weeks).And surprisingly there was 3 days of great weather.Took the NS highway to Kuala Kangsar and then the trunk roads to Gerik. Checked in and took a ride to Banding Lake.I had to see the lake on the first day as the next day was going to be brutal. On the second day i rode from the state of Perak-Kelantan-Pahang.That was a real test of my endurance.8 hours on the bike.3 states and thank god for my Airhawk seat as the roads were all B roads .Reached Kuantan around 3pm and checked into the Hyatt again.I actually wanted to stay at Cherating Beach but the pictures of the hotels were not very bike friendly.Had a nice long soak, a nice long massage and a nice long dinner.After some medicinal spirits it was time to retire. Left the next day for home.After the previous days ride ,the ride home of 260km of highway was over in an instant.Total trip 1,234km .More smilies than miles : ) Top of the pic is Thailand.Left is Indonesia and below is Singapore. Eventhough it was a relatively short trip it stil covered the northern half of peninsular Malaysia On the north south highway near Bukit Beruntung. View of Ipoh from the hills Closer.... Nice surroundings in the rest stop. View of whats to come. Finally the road to Gerik.Excellent roads , mainly long sweepers. Beautiful top gear sweepers Lake Raban on the way to Gerik. Virgin jungle surrounds you. As it was a public holiday a lot of bikers were out and about Nice peak in the distance. Stayed at Gerik rest house as the Banding lake resort was full. Nice room though. Left my bags and rode to Banding Lake.Really nice and big. The road to get here was 40km of twisties from Gerik.This after a few hours ride.Woohoo. Its so spread out i could only photograph parts of it. Halfabusa resting. More lake Army camp next to the lake.Nice amoured car. WTF ?????? Seriously??........it says - Caution wild elephant ! Love these roads. And the scenery. Coffee anyone? When i got back to my room there was an evil helmet gremlin waiting for me. Managed to catch the bugger :huh On the way to Kelantan the next day.Again ,virgin jungle and twisties .oh yeah. Climbing up the Titiwangsa Range. View behind the bike from the previous pic.Hills above the clouds At the top of the Titiwangsa.Beautiful huh? Interesting rock formation Somewhere in Kelantan.A short break Third stop in Terengganu.Nice coastal roads all the way to Kuantan. See the Airhawk seat.Without it i would have not made it this far. Quaint village houses in the background. After 8 hours and 550km of B/trunk roads i finally reach Kuantan. Now Hafabusa can rest in the bike friendly private parking After a bath and a massage i had the best calamari and lasangna EVER. Here.. View from the Italian restaurant Had a well deserved rest and left the next morning for home A break along the east west highway Going to go up in life soon. I've never ever seen Genting Highlands so clearly before.Ever!! Reached home tired but happy. This trip has been long in planning due to the nature of my stupid work Thanks to my wife and it being a public holiday ,i got to indulge. Hope you enjoyed this journey with me as i have so many times with you all. Cheers. p.s here are some pics from some other rides Sepang gold coast Batu Dam ( i've no idea what those things are) lots of this Chamang waterfalls Teluk Batik Restaurant with a view of the whole Kuala Lumpur closer.....(this is the extreme right of the previous pic) And finally your new inmate Thats all for now guys.Ride safe.
