I'm currently in KL and will be heading slightly north in your direction in a few days. I’m traveling around the world on a BMW R80G/S and hope to get it cleared through customs tomorrow. It’s in a container in Port Klang at the moment, coming from Buenos Aires.
Is your offer of accommodation still open? Would it be convenient to drop by for a day or two? I’d be very interested in staying with a local family for a day or two.
I am in Phuket and heading to Mal for soem riding before flying home from KL.
I would love to use your place as a base to ride from, is that possible please?
I am heading to the border tomorrow(if all goes well with the bike) and cross over on wednesday morning. I am humping all my camping gear and it would be so nice to unload it until it needs moving to the airport.
Mighty glad to have both of you in my rented house in Batu Gajah, Perak Malaysia. Please contact me on my cell phone 0193854736. I will be engaged in lecturing on every Tuesday (whole day). Other days I am free doing my own thing. No worry.
Hope to hear from you.
PS - Kevin, Im preparing for Canada and Alaska ride this Summer, would be nice to get some local advise.
Thanks Amzah once again. I arrived safely in KL, the bike is cleaned and detailed, it looks schmick!!!
I enjoyed my time in Batu Gajah as it was agreat base t do some loop rides. The Cameron Highlands was brilliant and as well riding with you and showing you the Geocaching ropes, we might have a convert.
I appreciate the use of the flat and hope to repay you and other riders one day once I am settled back home again.
Sure will AmZah. I left your keys with Alex ops: I also left a spare fuel screen I had with me but no longer need now I am going to be where there is clean fuel.
This screen is the low pressure fuel filter(called a strainer) that sits inside the fuel pump on the Vstrom. If your bike starts to splutter and fart when the fuel level is low, this will most likely fix it
