100% trunk road + 200% adventure = 300% pure motorcycling fun...
This is what I would sum up for this trip. Plenty of curvy cornering, rode on less traveled route to Lake Kenyir via Gua Musang-Felda Aring, and a new "unofficial" route from Cameron Highlands to Raub. Sound enticing? Read on...
I was meeting Sam a fellow Malaysian rider on Sat night in Segamat, so the whole day I spent wandering around Melaka town satisfied my craving for Melaka food. Met him at 10.30pm in Segamat... had a nice chat with him over the famous curry mee.
Day 1, 29 May (Sunday)
We decided to set off early at 5am. It was still cold riding in the total dark pitch trunk road with almost zero visibility.
Some parts of the road are quite curvy and with patches of bad roads with gravel... need to really concentrate...
Segamat > Gemas > Bahau > Durian Tipus
Reached Bentong at about 8am. It is a nice chill town very near to Karak and Genting Highland. Sam introduced the famous Wanton Mee and it is really yummy! Worth the wait.
After breakfast we proceeded towards Gua Musang in Kelantan, and hope to hit it before lunch. Nice twisty along the way and the weather was just nice and breezy for the ride.
