    Question on insurance. To my knowledge, local insurance covers accidents occurring in Singapore, Malaysia, and within 50km from Malaysian borders.

    Travel insurance doesn't cover vehicular damage. Could you purchase a short term automobile insurance for when you wish to venture further?

    Hi guys

    I am now living in Singapore and looking to rent a bike for a month to get a feel for if I want to buy one.

    There appears to only be BHH to rent from? Any advice on them or are there other companies?

    The GSA went first cos if she can be ridden across, ANY bike can. :clap Had to lead the way. :D and FULLY commision her branding as THE Adventure Motorcycle.
    Good write up, bro. Too bad you missed it. I'll definitely do it again, if only I can get my hands on some good knobby tyres. Had two spills going downhill in very slippery mud. Bike came out of everything without so much as a scratch.
    This was my first real offroad adventure on this beast of a motorcycle.
    And damn, has my belief in her been renewed.
    UNSTOPPABLE. :evil

    well... it was suppose to be camping 2 day, 1 night ride with a few friends..

    but when the date comes.. some are not well, some bikes not ready, and so and so...

    finally... 4 riders at meet up point..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    having different meals and jokes and laugh for about 2 hours while waiting for others..

    especially the host, bobby as we are going to his mom's village.

    no news from him, not taking the calls, no message,

    so after 12:00pm, we decided to move off, and do what we wanted to do.. just ride..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    we went to explore new trails, at Gelang Petah and Bukit Indah area, through some construction sites and development area

    [​IMG]

    except that our bikes were full tank and loads of stuff (overnight cloths, food and such)

    cut through some grass path, walkways.. without any navigation, just follow the lead bike (AJ) sense of direction.

    [​IMG]

    found one golf course and ride along the outside of fence.. till we found nice grass patch..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then we follow some tight trails around but finally came to halt by landslide across the path

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    it was quite steep, could be able to manhandle through but we decided not to.. it would be more difficult to reverse it back and we dont know what lies ahead..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    again... we were back to open route..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    it was all good on slippery and bumpy ride.. until AJ decided to go up slippery and muddy hill climb..

    first fall is DR350..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    second fall.. again 350

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    it was too slippery that i was sliding down with my offroad boots..
    even with good knobbies.. the bikes were full tank and load that we carry was so heavy..

    dont worry.. it's all good

    [​IMG]

    we came to unknown hill top.. the weather and view was awesome..

    it was well worth it..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    on road side.. we found skull of cow (or bull).. but nobody wanted to pick it up or bring it back..

    [​IMG]

    SecretAgent closely eximining ..

    [​IMG]

    we found underpass of North South Highway towards singapore..

    [​IMG]

    the other side is Gelang Petah area

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    but it was barricated

    [​IMG]

    tried to break it... but it's not good idea..

    [​IMG]

    so we had to slide the bikes under..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    XR650, XR4, DRZ400, DR350.. all are heavy bikes...

    then.. we found the familiar trail... where we used to came with big trailies last year

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    after that... it's all good.. we enjoyed much of open trail with decent speed..

    Damien on 350

    [​IMG]

    last year.. Damien on Veestorm

    [​IMG]

    again.. 350 drop

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    now.. it's about 5pm and we headed for dinner..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    only than we managed to call Bobby.. he woke up late and thought we were on the way.. so he proceeded to campsite alone..

    well.. we were not able to follow.. too tired to take another road trip for 2 hours to camp..

    we proceed to wash bike and call it a day.. well next time ..

    [​IMG]

    this was brought along in my sleeping bag...saved it for next camp..
