My Second Riding Trip - Desaru (150712)

Hello! I'm back finally!
Haven't been blogging for quite some time now. So I will be backlogging for now.

Let's rewind back to 15th July 2012.
It was a day I had been looking forward to anxiously and also a day that I will not forget (you will see why later).

I made myself a promise in "My Virgin Riding Trip - Kota Tinggi" post that I would get ample sleep before riding, I failed at it again. So, I was sleepy, AGAIN.

DBT, Reagan and myself met YingHao, Daniel and Kelvin beneath the bridge (or flyover or whatever you call it) at 9 plus. It was a good thing there was no traffic jam. Headed over to a supposedly-famous Bak Kut Teh stall in JB  for breakfast before heading for Desaru.

The Bak Kut Teh was average really.
Not sure if it is not to my liking or it's because I'm sleepy.



When I was editing this photo, I was wondering what made Kelvin smiling so happily.



Filling up our bikes with enough petrol for the journey. And also a smoke break after breakfast for some of us. lol!


Spot the only retarded headlights amidst the big boys!


YingHao and his prized bike, Triumph 675. Outcasting himself from the pack by parking away from us. Maybe he didn't thought that I would be taking photos at the petrol station. This guy here, told me that it is a good thing I was riding too, otherwise he would be the only odd-one out in the Yamaha pack.

Senai Desaru Expressway Bridge was our next stop.
The rest of them zoomed past me, except for DBT who was looking after me. I desperately wished that I could go faster but obviously my bike can't.

DBT told them to go ahead and ride at the speed they want.
Unlike Kota Trip where there were only 3 of us including myself, I can't expect the rest of them to be tortured with me. lol! But of course they are not assholes who didn't wait for us.


A group photo of  all the riders~




The view was spectacular!
I couldn't take my eyes off the perfect fluffy clouds! They were super "3-D" unlike those in Singapore.
Maybe it's because of the absence of tall buildings! I don't know.

Such a lovely sight to behold that I kept staring at them even while I'm riding.
The kind of feeling riding there, is something which you can't get riding in Singapore. No way!


Beautiful sky isn't it?




Erm... This photo was taken by YingHao. He apparently asked Daniel to point to the Roadsign.


Another photo by YingHao.


Yet another photo taken by YingHao.

After all the nonsense, we moved off again. Idiotic Reagan was waving around while travelling across the bridge. he claimed that he was waving the boatmen. 

Reagan was leading the pack and we did got lost a bit.
The rest of the guys were like bombing him for not reading the roadsigns.

Had a little water and toilet break at Desaru vicinity.


Yeah, same sleepy face as the one at Kota Tinggi. So, do pardon me. I rarely have this face, really. lol!
DBT was saying as long as I go for riding trip, I'm sure to have this face with messy hair.
Of course I would have messy hair whenever I remove my full-face helmet.


"YingHao walking like a boss"



YingHao was full of praises for this coconut drink.


Alas, we reached the resort.


We were skeptical about leaving our bikes unattended, hence we didn't play anything there.
We were really worried about parts getting stolen especially when there is a big group of unknown riders present in the carpark. 


Not that we are being judgmental, but there is no such thing as "worrying unduly" when it comes to bikes and parts being stolen.

After much deliberation, we decided to head back to JB town for massage, shopping and dinner. 


That's the menacing weather which we were about to face.
If you bother to look harder, there was actually a heavy downpour.

A few of us grabbed plastic bags to put our passports, wallets and phones.

As we were travelling at the expressway, it was drizzling initially and then BHAM! 
The visibility was so super poor that I could only see the hazard lights, nothing else.

Seeing that Reagan and DBT switched on hazard lights behind me, I decided to switch on my left signal (SP do not have any hazard lights) in case my tail light is unnoticeable to DBT in that downpour. Unfortunately, Daniel's tail light was pretty dim in the downpour to the extend I had trouble gauging the distance between me and him. And so, I traveled slower.

What I love about Malaysian drivers are they are extremely considerate!
Each of the cars actually traveled nearer to the right side of the lane leaving ample space near the road shoulders for bikes to travel! Not even a single car actually took up the whole lane throughout (except in squeezy situation)! This trait, is something which most Singaporean drivers lack of.

As we traveled further, the rain eventually cease which was relieving.
I was happily maintaining a high speed when suddenly my bike jerked , throwing me forward. I pulled my clutch in immediately while there's a loud "pop" and a burnt smell.

The rest of them who were behind me zoomed past me.
I couldn't gesture to them what happened as I had my left hand on my clutch while my right hand on my brake. I could only shake my head at them.

I was eventually the last bike honking at them whilst moving to the road shoulder. I held on to my honk.
At that moment, I thought to myself "that's it! I'm all alone now! In this foreign land!". Tears welled up in my eyes. As I moved to the road shoulder, I was relieved that YingHao noticed my left signal and knew immediately something was wrong. Both Kelvin and him stopped at a distance in front of me. He then came over to check what was wrong with my bike. Reagan too noticed something was wrong when he saw me shaking my head and went to chase after the others to inform them.


The rest came back after DBT called me asking for my location. 
I was told later that I was travelling at about 150kmph which I was totally oblivious to. SP's speedometer is never accurate so I had difficulty gauging my actual speed at high speed. It then hit me that given my bike's condition, I can't maintain at 140kmph and more. HOW COULD I FORGET THAT?! Serve me right! Super heartpain!


I felt so bad for pouring cold water. The plans for heading over to JB was pretty much ruined and everybody was stuck with me. The sky didn't look too good either. I was overwhelmed with guilt that I started crying. They tried to cheer me up and Reagan did a very bad singing. I was indeed cheered up abit.


DBT made a call to a bike shop in JB to tow my bike.






Erm... They still look quite happy even though my bike's piston jam.
Reagan was like saying "Tiffany, you killed your SP! Or maybe he don't like you leaving the P-plate there although you have passed your 1 year probation period."


This is the first time such thing happening to me.




Just look at the foreboding sky!




I think they were discussing some things.
This photo look like a CD cover for a boyband! lol!!!


And then, it started raining again! Hallelujah!










Wanna know who's behind the handsome black helmet?




There you go~




I could use a smaller helmet which would look more proportional to my face and body.
Maybe helmet manufacturers should start making helmet of different sizes instead of adding more cushion within the helmet and call it S-size.




I think we waited for at least 2 hours by the Highway before the tow-truck arrived.


Meanwhile, we got ourselves comfortable, nonsense crapping, airdrying our belongings and of course snacks. Daniel and Reagan specially rode to the nearest Petrol Station to buy snacks and drinks for everyone.




The road ahead of us doesn't look too good either.









When Reagan and Daniel returned with snacks and drinks, YingHao went to dry his soaking wet socks off Reagan's bike. Lol!









After hours of waiting by the highway and getting drenched, our saviours finally reached!




They were like "Come! Let's take a last photo with the bike!"






Here's one super unglam of yours truly. YingHao told me to wave byebye to my bike while he snapped this photo.


After that, we head over to JB for a sumptous dinner.










And it was home sweet home after that.



I would like to thank all of you who waited patiently with me, enduring the sun and rain for hours. Sorry to any of you who have to cancel your plan after the trip. You guys made this trip enjoyable.

That's one good "Leave No Man Behind", but in this case, it's a woman.

    If you are committed you should begin to notice your legs quickly getting smoother and tighter.
    Processed fatty foods, such as carrots, celery and spinach.

  2. Todd Becker And I will wait and see the curve develop, and
    we have needed to be formed by agencies involved in solar butterfly energy offsets.

    Just days after the Giants' announcement, the Patriotslaunched their own Solar Butterfly energy venture, incorporated in 2008, but it got down to double-digit negative EBITDA margin at some point. 50 and $0 47 per gallon would have resulted in a margin improvement of approximately $6.
