    Been silently enjoying photo/story on this site for quite some times.
    [FONT=&quot]Never question/comment on anyone's journey/skill/machine, but merely hoping one day be able to share own riding experience as in return.

    Not owning any bike, but lucky enough to have friends are willing to share experience and kind enough to lend theirs for occasionally off-road ride, and sometime riding pillion.

    A recent encounter with a KTM/BMW owner/adventure rider, has made one begin to wonder.. What is being a rider/bike owner all about??

    Below are link of conversation extracted from my Facebook post that consist of a picture of LWR & LWR book cover..

    Sorry for interrupting, just a sincere question from a Non-bike owner.

    I've got a fair bit or riding experience in Malaysia & Southern Thailand for a westerner. For any persons thinking of renting a bike or joining an organized bike tour, I can recommend Ride Adventure just outside KL at Batu Caves
