There’s nothing like a road trip to really experience a country. From coastal highways and dizzying mountain passes, to scenic routes through national parks and bridges over great spans of water; roads are the circulatory system that connects a country. After a short discussion and planning,2 vespa riders from Singapore plus Steve Koh and I decided to go for a 3D2N trips to the 3 famous highlands in Malaysia: Cameron Highlands, Genting Highlands and Fraser's Hill.

The riders and their wasps:


Stanley Soh (Vesp ET8)
Juon Tan(Vespa GT200)
Steve Koh( LX 150 carb)
Me (LX 150 carb)

This highlands trip has hundreds of curves to ride..perhaps you can call it as Malaysia version of Deals Gap, lol.
I am not a good writer, so let the pics talk cheers!

Looks like a great trip Vitaminz, nice scenery, hard to put words to an outing like this, it is pleasure all the way, especially when you are in good company, shame about the scoot losing traction, but lucky only limited damage to rider and bike. My wife and I are planning a similar trip here in NZ for the summer, 21 days on our South Island and a 3500 k trip planned. All the best, safe riding, Owie.

Thanks Owie! Indeed, it was a great trip, and an epic one for the 2 riders from Singapore as this was their first ever time ride into Malaysia.
Looking forward to hear from your great 3500km trip soon, all the best!!
