WOW.. how gracious!

Hi Amzah

That is a very generous offer. We might take you up on that. We are currently in Malaysia on 2 bicycles, and may well come past Perak.

Not entirely sure about our route yet, but might be in the area in a month or so.

Roger that. Please keep me inform.

Malaysia visit

Hi Amzah,
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.

Best regards,

Hi Amzah

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.

and of course Kevin, maybe we could meet for a beer?

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.

TravellingStrom 18 Mar 2013 16:02

Brilliant, and thanks for the offer

I have been to Canada and done the Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, so I might have a few useful items to share as well :)

I live in BC and just rode down to Ushuaia, so yeah, we can share lots of data.

TravellingStrom 21 Mar 2013 09:23

Well, I am currently situated in this very nice flat and have cold beers in the fridge as well as food. And what a bonus, I managed to wash my clothes ;)

Cheers Amzah and nice to meet you.

TravellingStrom 29 Mar 2013 11:21

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.

You welcome! The least I could do. There are few lesson learnt to better equip the little shelter for travelling bikers.
Safe journey to your next destination. See you again.


TravellingStrom 30 Mar 2013 11:13

Sure will AmZah. I left your keys with Alex :oops: 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 :)
