I would like to say thanks to those who stop by at our booth and say Hi. Here are some photos that I managed to snap while I was there. Enjoy.

Released! The 2016 Triumph Motorcycle Classic Series T120!

We are lucky to have our friend from Bonnefication sharing some live feed photos at the Triumph Launching in London today. Here are some series of design for the new 2016 Triumph Motorcycle T120. We love the racer series as it comes with half fairing, USD forks, new tank shape, seat cowl and many more. Looks like they have upgraded the cc to 1200cc and 900cc. The most obvious thing to see is the slim radiator tuck in front of the frame. More specs to be revealed later. For now, enjoy the photos shared by Bonnefication.

Cheers.

The Current Cafe Racer Scene in Kuala Lumpur

Naked13caferacer is an active group here in Kuala Lumpur. They are not the pioneer nor the ‘otai’, they are just a bunch of caferacer enthusiast and actively riding around with their leathers and caferacer bikes. Kerkus was always part of naked13caferacer, alongside with Rocken and Cangkung Malaya. Here are some nice photos taken by Shaiful Azre during recent November Riding Outing. Cheers.

Mandarin Hippi Happy Ride

It was CNY and we had no other plans. SO we decided to join a ride organized by our local MC called “Banjaros Malaya”, together with the Naked13 Café Racer boys. They are one of the old timers MC in motorcycle scene in Malaysia. They named the ride as “Mandarin Hippi Happy Ride” where the objective of this ride is to make new friends and strengthen the brotherhood among fellow bikers. Destination is Pantai Kemasik Terengganu which is around 300++ km from KL.

The ride rolled out from the RV place around 9am and we headed slowly along Karak Highway. Speed was around 80-100km/h as most of the bikes are classic bikes, so they prefer to ride it slow and steady, Besides, there is nothing to rush for. The scene was great and the weather was amazingly cold and breezy. Not a single sweat comes out from my thick leather jacket. Of course we had to make a few stops as one of the classic bikes keep on refusing to go on. It’s a normal thing to them in fact they enjoyed wrenching and fixing their bikes by the road side. People watched and honk with a thumbs up, supporting the lads who have the guts to ride those classic bikes where some of it came from way early 50s. We were also escorted by a VW Combi from Bukit Botak Garage thanks to bro Rahim.

We reached Pantai Kemasek quit late, around 7pm. 10 hours of riding + few breakdowns. As we reached there, we were invited to visit the local custom workshop in Terengganu called Metaljob Syndicate. I was surprised to see their custom jobs there as there were masters in classic bikes such as triumph, Norton, BSA etc. They even fixed jet ski and set it up for racing. WoW. After the visit, we when straight to the beach and start erecting our tent. Everyone can’t wait to sleep after a long hours of riding.

Next day was a relaxing day. Everyone mingled around and chit chating each other. To my surprised, a few local MCs from Terengganu and Kelantan came to join this event and slowly became a mini Bike Week. Rows of bikes we parked and attracted passing byers to come and admire the bikes. We were served with home cooked dish and good music. By end of the night, a small gathering were made where all the MCs were given a token of appreciation and some gift to winners.

The next morning everyone woke up early as it was the day to return home. We thanked the local MCs for being so helpful with their kind hospitality. It will not be the last, surely we will come back again. Along the ride, I’ve learned a lot of new stuff from the old timers, be it about motorcycles or even about life. It’s a good way to pass on their experience and share it to younger generations. In the end, this ride ROCKS!
