RIDING TO TEBEDU

Sebenar-benarnya nak jugak naik motor jalan-jalan. Kalau dekat ok jugak. Jauh-jauh ni penat lah, sakit badan.

Tapi sempat jugak ke Tebedu; sempadan antara Sarawak dan Indonesia. About 100km from Kuching. Bukanya jalan highway so ambik masa jugak 1 jam lebih. Tak banyak motor yang ikut. Kami yang naik easyrider ni tertinggal kat belakang. Nak kejar superbike semput jugak. Saya yang ringan ni macam nak terbang.




Taktau apa itu Entikong



..And the groups

On the way back we stop at Serian and enjoying the Ranchan waterfall
