Dakar Rally Wanabe Trail Ride Coming Up In Singapore: "Ideal For Newbies & Seasoned Riders too"
A fruitful session held last Saturday. Hope to have a good one on 24th June.
Went to Mustafa Centre to check logistics stuff to buy to prepare the event.
One of the recce session, one of the big tankers had a great time experience once in a lifetime tight trail in the terrain.
Will post pic soon.
Due to space constraint & new parking ERP implemented at our usual meetup location at Simpang Bedok, We will be meeting at Singapore Expo Carpark (Outside Mr.Prata Kopitiam). Please have a proper meal before reporting. Ensure your PETROL TANK is not more than 10 Litres filled as manouvering in offroad terrain with heavy tank will be much inconvenience in a few tight trails. Ideal capacity of petrol use: 7litres~10litres.
