In our first ride to visit historical places(KMS 1) there were 3 of us. KMS 2 -16 , KMS 3 - 15 , and for this ride KMS 4 ............wait for it .....................46 bikes :-0
We planned our first RV at the Seremban RR . From there we plan to ride to Melaka and meet more bikers at the Ayer Keroh RR. From there we will head to the center of Melaka's historical city to see the most famous landmarks .We were lucky that a group of Melaka Bikers took the time to escort us through Melaka city , and they really took good care of us. From good marshalling , to taking us sightseeing , to escorting us to see a very unique sight that we didn't even think of .Thank you Melaka bikers - you guys rock :-)
Early morning RV at Seremban RR
We didn't know how many bikes were going to turn up as this ride was open to all.
The bikes kept coming ....and coming ....
