Saturday Oct 24, 2009:The Born again Roadie

Latest Update: 2 videos have been uploaded


Route: Sg. Long
Riders: Farizal, Zaha, Bro Man & Faizol

Alhamdulillah, It was a sunny Saturday Morning. The air was fresh, the road was dry and the feeling was as great as ever. Yes, it's a ride day.

I started alone from the RV since Saipol couldn't join the morning ride. I was going to rendezvous with Farizal at the Bukit Kajang toll Plaza while Zaha would be waiting at the check point, 750 meters away from the 1st peak. The traffic was unusually a bit hectic today. The engine roars broke the tranquil morning while the fumes from their exhausts spoiled the cool breezing air.

The newly patched road en route to the Kajang town exit was a site for sore eyes. With no white lines, and patches of grease and splattered oils, I had to be extra careful with the traffic behind.


I cruised the highway at 30-33 KMH and reached the Bukit Kajang Toll with a little surprise. Our long lost fellow rider, Brother Man had made a come back with a road bike. Bravo! Farizal was there too.

Shortly afterward we continued our rides through the usual route with Zaha. Too bad I couldn't do the small double loop today. But tomorrow, we'll try to do LEKAS route.
