West Malaysia Loop Ride

I have always been inspired by the reports in this section and dreamed of one day writing my own. However, seeing that many of the trips involved some off-road components made me hesitate. Still, I wanted to share the ride I did last week with a few friends with you as a way of giving back to this community. Do excuse the fact that the ride was done completely on tarmac.

This is my second ride around the West Malaysia peninsular. I did the first one on my TW200 with three friends, and the second one on my CB400 with four friends. I hope this does the board justice.

Super cool! And a very detailed report as well. Looks like you had a lot of fun. I decided to go back northeast and through Cambodia instead of south from Phuket. Looks like I may have missed out! I guess there's always next time...

Thanks.

Great report. I am coming to Singapore and Malaysia sometime this year with my wife. She is Singaporean but her parents are Malaysian living in Petaling Jaya. Would love to rent a bike and take a long tour around Malaysia. If I get healed up from my crash in time I still might do it.

That sounds like a good plan indeed. Let me know if you need information when you get here. Lots of riders here in Singapore
