its horrible


After all that install back everythg...will continue tomoro..

Only an XR650R could start up and run after that clean up. If the intake looked this bad, I would do a complete go thru on the bike, just to check all is well. And, stop rolling around in mud puddles like a big pig! :D :crazy:

Even though the plate is not on it yet, I just got back from the tag office a few minutes ago and got it squared away.

Off the top of my head I can't remember. I'll have to take a look when I get home. They were on the bike when I got it.

Rode the pig again today...well,it seems like it always rain down here...the mudpools are getting deeper...more unexpected wash..

Posted Image
Having the bike feeling light is way to go in this very wet terrain..but having half-lif semi-offroad rear tyre is not...
Posted Image

The rain have even caused a fallen tree in our path...have to reroute.
Posted Image

Posted Image
another effect by the rain.

i was working from 8am in the morning and havent sleep since
here's my final prep.

Weather was great...superb indeed...i think all of us have our MP3s getting going as we cruised along the highway...for about 90km...we reached Ayer Hitam toll..

Posted Image

we were riding when JoeMac seems to have some issues with his XR...its about half the journey to Kahang that we had to stop again to take a look at his bike...
stop at a foodstall near the roadside..
Posted Image
Stop for breakfast.
Posted Image

He told me he had his spark plug and EO and air filter replaced just before the ride..now the bike is jerky and it feels like petrol not entering the carb.
I checked the carb and found the caused.
Posted Image

All 3 screws on the carburator manifold was loose...one of the screws has a bad thread...replaced the screws...and asked Joe to tighten them...
The bike fire up and it is now at is normal state again.
we took our breakfast just above.
Posted Image
Posted Image
The chicken rice wasnt bad at all..it was good with fresh apple juice to sip,nothing beats a good breakfast and we were all ready to roll again.
after another 60km ride...we refuelled.
Posted Image
Its about 10km to reach the entrance of Endau Rompin.

Posted Image
we were told that on the 2nd bridge,it is not possible to get any further...since its the monsoon season,heavy rain have caused the area to be flooded...
which we somehow reach that stage.
Posted Image

from this point...we thought it would gets better after crossing this area...
Posted Image
of coz...i have to be the one to test the water.:banghead:
Posted Image
video of the crossing..and after found out the other side is impossible to cross...no land visible up ahead..


  • smicer

Posted December 19, 2007 - 11:09 AM


one village gone fishing...
Posted Image
:banghead:

Posted Image

Posted Image

and so...my friend Richard decided to get wet as well...since we came all the way here,might as well have some fun...
Posted Image
Posted Image
the water current was pretty strong...when we were walking over to test how deep it is,we could almost fall...
video of Richard


And so...we decided to have a group photo...:busted:

Supposedly to just backtrack and head for the entrance...but right after this point,we took a detour...i thought maybe we could just trail around the flood area to go to the other point..
we went abit off limit...no paths...soft muddy sands with fallen tree trunks...
And Joe got stuck at one point..
Posted Image
Posted Image
teamwork to do the job
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
At this point,we are already out of the GPS route...we continued till we reach to some plantation area...and met with one farmer who told us there's really no way beyond the point to get to the other end...only by boat...so leaving us with not much choice but to go back.

we keep riding in circles after this...
Posted Image
Posted Image
another quick look on the GPS
Posted Image
Posted Image
from the GPS reading...we are heading straight for the 54km mark..which is the right route...but we have to cross this
Posted Image
but its not that easy as it looks...even if we cross this,we would know what lies ahead...so we decided not to proceed

so we still trying to get out...

we crossed path thats nvr really a path....crossed over fallen tree trunks...tall grass...just to be able to follow the GPS reading to lead us back to the kampong peta route...
Posted Image

until we reached here...which is what we thought was a beautiful sight..
Posted Image
took a break and somehow...by looking at the GPS reading,this time,we are very close to the Kampung Peta route

we got on track and a final photo before the exit
