For the 5th edition of KMS, tayargolek (TG) and friends planed to visit the East Coast state of Terengganu. Since the distance is greater than usual we had to plan a 2 day trip as opposed to a day ride. We planned to ride to Terengganu via the East coast highway, visit some historical places and spend the night by the beach. The following day was planned to return home via Kenyir lake, Gua Musang - Bentong and back. Overall the trip was a lot of fun and we got to see many many new places .
Early moring RV at Gombak.
There were 27 bikes in this trip
Breifing by our ride leader
Along the way about 40 minutes into the ride ,one of our riders had a flat.
He had all the repair equipment ,with some assistance we were back on the road in no time.
We made our first stop at an R&R
After another hour on the highway we got off the highway and made a pit stop near Chukai
One of our members treated us to a great lunch :-)
We then made our way north. Unfortunately being a large group ,we got split from the rest.Along the way we decided to stop by the sea for a while.
A sea breeze is what we needed on a hot day
On the bike .....
On reaching Kuala Terengganu we headed to our first destination - The Floating Mosque.
We rejoined the rest of the group there.
Nice huh :-)
Nice grounds and lake.
The mosque is built in the middle of a lake
We made a quick stop along the way to see this ...pic by Han
Its a replica of the famous ''Batu bersurat''. To see the original we would have to go to the state muzeum so this would have to do ......pic by Han
From there we visited our third planned destination. To see the Crystal Mosque.
FJR in front of the Crystal Mosque :-)
Nice huh :-)
Its situated next to the River.
We'll be on that bridge soon
A final look at this masterpiece

A neighbouring house
Around 8pm we reached our hotel at Batu burok Beach
After a shower it was time to enjoy our catered buffet dinner
Its been a long day, but we received word that the local chapter of bikers wanted to host us to a late supper.We gladly accepted and they escorted us from our hotel to the cafe.
Many many bikes
At first glance it looks like a BMW
Versistrada ?? :-)
The Terengganu bikers even had a banner made to welcome us.
In addition to the food and drinks they provided for us.
Thanks to the Terengganu bikers, you guys rock :-)
Back to the hotel and crash.
Early the next day we had an early breakfast.
I decided to look around the hotel as we checked in late last night
We left the hotel around 9am.
After an hours ride from the hotel we reached here.
Ample parking and cafes.
From here the GPS guided us to Gua Musang via a Felda Plantation. Some off road fun was had :-)
At Gua musang we stopped for lunch and fuel.
Nice roads south.
A rest stop along the way.
On reaching the Karak toll the was a jam.
We're on bikes :-)
It was a really nice ride. We got to see new places, make new friends and enjoy new experiences.
