With Ramadhan approaching, this will probably be the last ride in a month. As usual I planned the route to include some offroad portion but this time with the aim of having lunch at Ma-Ni, a new restaurant just outside Tanjung Malim. Built and run by a fellow biker, I anticipate the place to be nice, and it really is.
The RV point was Sg Buluh RnR, and from there we head to Bt Beruntung to enter the offroad section which cuts across a secondary forest. This track is good as its not muddy, the surface being sandy. From there we exit at Sg Tengi Dam, joining tarmac after 25km offroading. Then we ride on to Seri Keledang, Gunung Besuit then loop back to Selim River before another portion of 12km of broken tarmac. After lunch at Ma-Ni we headed home.
When I got to the RV Point, Sg Buloh RnR, Cee Kay, Mel and Bin were already there. The bikes started trickling in and by 0730 we were ready to go. There were three riders new to the group for today, Chen on a GS, Victor on a Pegaso Trail and Bin on a Tiger. The light stratus overhanging the morning holds promise of good weather.
Kev swapped his GSA with Lamb's MTS2.
A short 40km ride on the PLUS Hiway
Chen on his one day old GS. I met him at Wunderlich Shop and got him to join the ride. Told him there's a ride with offroad bits and he looked doubtful.
The Bt Beruntung Exit
Heading to the broken tarmac route
ABS OFF, Traction Control to 70% spin.
The quiet morning was suddenly breached by the sound of rumbling boxer twins, although the MTS2's Termis was the loudest....Big dust trai rising through the trees,
This is Markus
Justine, with Eddy watching out for her
Eddy Tan is one the Group's more accomplished and responsible riders, always unselfishly looking out for others.
Victor's first ride with the group
Sunny and Bin on their GSA and Tiger
Bin Chin on his Tiger. First time joining the group.
Chen just collected his first GS yesterday. He rode a Z1000 previously. Firts group ride - offroad.
Eddy Tan looking out for Justine.
The trail goes underneath the PLUS Highway exiting through the tunnel into a road that leads to Sg Tengi Dam.
Passing Hutan Simpanan Bukit Tarik
Sg Tengi Lake perimeter road.
We stopped at this stall near Kg Sg Tengi
After TT, we rode along the Felda road passing Kg Soeharto
Kg Seri Keledang. Kevin acting as marker for the rest
Crossing the bridge into Felda Gedangsa.
Fooling around with Lamb's Ducati
Estates are Private Property, and permission must be sought for entry.
Heading for Gunung Besuit
Then Markus started the ball rolling by flying past me
Sunny Puan started to play
Mel promptly joined in
This bridge separates Felda Gedangsa and Felda Besuit.
This straight as an arrow dirt track got the boys into a frenzy as speeds up to 100km/h can be had
Entering Felda Besuit 1
We passed through this fairly steep loose gravel section. Heart in the mouth when you have a 300kg RM120k bike under you.
Justine was all stressed up here but she did well to ride through unassisted.
Must be a brotherhood syndrome when these two wears their Alam Flora jackets.
We reached tarmac after 1 hour in dirt
After leaving Felda Besuit 2 we rode along this deserted tarmac road to Selim River for about 30km.
Fuel stop at Selim River
Another 20km before we passed through this security check to get to another dirt section.
Lamb on his MTS2 leading the GS
Justine brought her own 'Sanitary' Team, two janitors in Alam Flora.
After one more short stop we reached our Lunch RV at Ma-Ni. Sean called saying that he rode all the way from KL to meet us there.
Ma-Ni is a restaurant built and run by a friend of mine, Mahussin, an avid Harley rider who rides a Street Glide and a Crossbone. He also has a custom bike. We wanna get a GS under his butt at some stage. Ma-Ni is built in front of his house, and has a small stream running through it. Beautifully and tastefully done, we see it as a place for stops on our future rides around the area.
As we were having lunch, the Spyder group arrived for lunch.
They came complete with Police Escort and Marshalls.
Lunch over, its time for tok kok.
Tok Kok finishes, and its time to go
Another good ride. Less than 300km, with a total of 13 riders. Sean came later.
