Kuala Kelawang With Northern Friends
On Friday, we recieved one sms from Steven of Team Hillraiders telling us that they will hold a gathering with touge enthusiast coming down from North part of Malaysia somewhere near Genting Sempah touge. And he said that Touge King of Cameron will be there as well. At first we thought that there will be some touge shodown that night and we was just wanted to come and watch. But it turned out to be that they have some ‘unfinished business’ here to take care off on a few things.. And yes, they’ve did it well..!
On saturday night, we all gathered at Steven Corners Cafe in Pandan Indah. There was just Burn and Azuri of KANSEI that managed to meet up with all the buddies from north. Other members was outstation currently. Kura is in Bali, Indonesia, Mat Gen is in Kelantan – busy preparing for his wedding soon, Admiral was in Alor Setar…
Burn who is still not fully recovered from his previous motorbike accident, came with a bandage hand and ride in Azuri’s car on that night as a co-pilot. At first, Steven of Team Hillraiders asked us to lead their way to Kuala Kelawang touge, but due to some problems with Azuri’s car he refused to lead and just wanted to follow everyone from behind with a cruising speed.
The road conditions was wet and slippery as it was after rain. Once they all reached the base point at Kuala Kelawang touge, all of the participated drivers started to blast off and roaming into the dark night and hilly road of Kuala Kelawang. There was lots of cars.. From Perodua Kenari, Turbocharged Wira, Toyota Vios, Perdana V6, Satria Neo, Toyota KE70, Proton Waja, a Hilux.. Yes, you read it right.. Hilux! And it is damn fast around those twisties plus a few other cars including Azuri’s ‘more-to-a-problematic’ Satria.. LOL.
After the run started, it just by then Azuri realized that his headlight cannot put on high beams. It’ll go blank if high beams is switched on but it’ll normally operated if the head lights is put to normal. Once they all finished the uphill session, Azuri managed to tweaked the wiring of his car and get it back working narmally once again.
Then was the downhill part – Heading all the way to Jelebu. And once we’ve reached the finished line, we all stop for drinks at jelebu side and ended up the night there. Not wanted to go all the way through the touge again, Azuri and Burn decided to drive up all the way to Seremban before exiting to PLUS Expressway. They reach home at 4.30 am.
We had a blast! Thanks for coming here guys… You guys are awesome..!
