Guys, so has the trip's destination been decided yet? Mersing? Hope to confirm early as I need to put up application for leave from workplace. Thanks.

Hi sky_vinz, the Mersing trip is confirmed. Please update you name! :thumb:

Though you don't have to take leave as the Mersing trip is a short one day trip. I have confirmed the route as follows:

 

Route:

2nd Link -> via highway -> Kulai

Kulai -> via normal scenic route -> Kottan Tinggi (can pump petrol)

Kotta Tinggi -> via normal scenic route -> Mersing (@ 80km/h +/- we can reach by 11am.)

Lunch and all the way back to Singapore customs with occassional stops (& pump petrol) along the way.

 

Signboards all the way as such getting lost is difficult :)

 

Speed: Casual cruise mode with occassional sprints as and when required. :cool:

 

=========================================================

So anyone interested and willing to spare a Sunday for the trip - 9th December just add your name below. I'm definitely riding.

 

Meeting location: West Cost Mac

Meeting date & time: 9 December 7am onwards.

Start time and date to Singapore 2nd Link customs: 8am (as early as possible)

Reaching time and date to Singapore 2nd Link customs: 7pm

 

Interested participants:

1. osfar

2. Richsg300+1pax (will go if times allow me)

3. BennyDcode

4.

5.

I love the responsibility of riding smartly.

I love riding alone on a motorcycle.

I love riding in groups.

I love how motorcycles make me feel the hero I'm not.

Hi guys, after a little discussion with BennyDcode and Jopsephsbs last night, we can consider the first link (Woodlands) when going in to Johor, for one good reason - we save 20km.

Let me check on the traffic status at the Woodlands custom on a Sunday morning (8am) and then we will re-confirm the meeting point(s) again.

If the traffic is going to be heavy, my take is I would rather enjoy spending the time riding the 20km, then waiting in queue to clear customs.

 

Any suggestions and information (i.e. on the traffic status on a Sunday morning) are welcome. :)

distances from gps:

gp esso to mersing town 152km

jb shell (just off immi) to mersing 130km

gp esso to join kota tinggi hwy 35km

jb shell (just off immi) to join kota tinggi hwy 11km

bro osfar have u ever factored in e meter error???eg our meter is -10km/h min???

 

anyway for ur info i would suggest u guys start from 2nd link den u exit 312

den u go straight all the way till u hit near jusco, den u juz follow the sign and ur good to go...

 

but, i would even try starting moving off from 1st link...cuz theres no jam whatsoever???!!!practically no bikes to speak off...

 

and also push the meet up timing 2hrs ahead for factoring in e slow speed

 

 

cheers! hope this helps!

Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you'll be able to see farther.

somewhat agree with hamsterwhale on the speed n timing thingy...

 

if set off from west coast mac at 8am, don't thing u can reach esso gp in 30mins, especially at 80kph (70kph true speed) and don't forget about a convoy crossing 2x immigration & 1x road toll... lots of waiting around :) suggest u give 50mins.

 

as for journey from gp esso to perling, tot we suggested 3hrs for a leisurely ride... stop-by shell at kota tinggi or petronas at ulu tiram. certain parts may required us to go really slow where the road is sandy or has pebbles. safety first... remember the main road at perling last night?

may all be well and happy

there's no ideal on the road... just ideas n rides :angel:

 

some phantoms venture as far as their birthland thailand... mersing is definitely not an issue :thumb:

guess what? 1 tank (8.52L regular & 2.68L reserves = 11.2L) can get us there with lots of spare :shades:

but we'll still stop n take pump-pee-smoke breaks in between :cheeky:

 

cheers

Thanks for the inputs guys and guess what, you guys are very accurate with those information as I drove up this morning :thumb:, taking the 2nd link up to Kotta Tinggi and back via the Woodlands link...having makan and shopping along the way.

 

My suggested itinerary as follows:

Route:

7:00am onwards gather @ West Coast Mac (address to be provided).

7:30am onwards start to roll to 2nd Link.

8:00am clear 2nd Link customs and roll towards GP Esso

8:30am gather with other riders @ GP Esso and a quick debrief

9:00am roll towards Perling town -> Jusco

9:30am estimated to hit Jusco super mall

(hmmm...laksa @ ulu tiram as recommend..)

10:30am estimated to hit Kotta Tinggi town

12:00am estimated to hit Mersing

12:00pm - 1:30pm R&R/Lunch (if Laksa taken @ ulu tiram suggested don't eat again unless body weight not an issue :p)

1:45pm Start to roll back towards JB (Woodlands checkpoint)

Estimated reaching JB customs (with Petrol/Pee/Smoke/Drink) 5pm

 

Speed: Casual cruise mode (varying from 50-90km/h).

 

Let me know if I need any corrections on the timings.
