The Kawasaki Lady Bikers or more commonly known as KLG is formed in 2013 and today boosts a membership of more than 120 lady bikers. All sharing a common interest of riding big cc Kawasaki motorcycle.
In 2015, 23 Lady Bikers from the KLG group managed to explore the whole of Peninsular Malaysia covering a total distance of 2,161 kilometers. This year, 8 remarkable ladies from KLG, with vastly different background, age and ethnicity got together for one common passion: An even longer distance riding than what was achieved in 2015. And not just any motorcycle, but a Kawasaki that is no smaller than 650 cc
They made it home safely today after traveling more than 5,800 kilometers from Kuala Lumpur to the Golden Triangle and back. Their biggest mission and challenge was to undertake the over 1,800 corners in Mae Hong Song. “It was actually more corners than 1,800 as the corners started way back in Mae Sot and gradually got more challenging with different elevation and radius for each corner as we got closer to Mae Hong Song”, shares Ms. Vickneswary A/P Sinathamby who rides a Kawasaki GTR 1400, the biggest amongst the group.
Ms. Safura Zahirah Binti Yusoff, who rides a Kawasaki Versys 650 adds that they woke up at 6:00 AM each day to ride an average of 600 – 700 Kilometers to their next destination, reaching each destination at about 6-7 PM each time. As the trunk roads in Thailand is not very good with numerous roads under construction, they cannot travel very fast averaging about 110 Km/h and at times they had to ride for more than 10 Kilometers under slippery gravel condition.
Speaking at the welcome ceremony held on behalf of the Lady Bikers at Kawasaki Motors Malaysia HQ, YBhg. Dato’ Jeffrey Lim Chee Seng, General Manager and Director of Kawasaki Motors (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd congratulates the Lady Bikers and the 2 marshal that escorted them on their success in completing this challenging journey. He adds “I believe Kawasaki lady Bikers Group will continue to expand and increase in the numbers of lady bikers in the coming near future. This challenging journey to the Golden Triangle have not only tested both the physical and mental strength of the ladies, but also on the durability and reliability of the motorcycles that they rode on. Both ladies and machine have performed extremely well. I believe they have gained a valuable and memorable experience that will remain in them forever”
These ladies have proven that with the right mind and attitude, there is nothing to stop one from achieving their dreams and passion. Well Done to VICKNESWARY A/P SINATHAMBY, SAFURA ZAHIRAH BINTI YUSOFF, SARIZA BINTI SALIM, ZAHARATUL SA’ADIAH AHMED ZAKI, SUZANA BINTI AB SAMAD, ZAIFILLA FARRINA ZAINUDDIN, NOR ELI NADIAH ABDULLAH and TUAN AUZAN TUAN KAMALUDDIN
