We had an awesome morning winding our way up to and down from the Genting Highlands. It was a great opportunity to get orientated on my bike - a nearly new Kawasaki all purpose bike. I have nicknamed him Big Berthas Big Brother - Blue Burtie. He is a lot higher than Bertha, but I can still touch the ground :) .. And he is of course so much lighter than the old girl with better handling around the corners.
I thought the bike handled very well and I am very excited about Monday when I will start my 10 day self guided tour. I even think that i may be able to attach the backpac on the back which would be great.
It was so great to be back on a proper bike after my 10 day break in Australia and Baby Bertha in Bali. I was seriously going through withdrawal symptoms.
Blue Bertie .. My new best friend :)
And what a professional and knowledgeable guy Faizal is who has an obvious passion for riding. Get a couple of bikers together and it's like long lost friends. I also met one of his business partners, Nick who was riding a very impressive bike that had the same stature as Bertha.
If youre looking at riding in Malaysia, these are the guys to come to. Head and shoulders in terms of professionalism and customer care if you ask me. You can check out their website at www.ridemalaysia.com.my .
Coming down the other side :)
Nick and Nick .... :)
(Thanks to Nick and Faizal for a couple of these photos - i have nicked them from Facebook :) )
So after a great morning ride it was back to the hotel and tomorrow I will zip along to the Petronas towers before an early check out on Monday so I can make the most of my 10 days.
Thanks for taking time out of your day to follow my blog. Cheers, Nick.
