Route out of Ringlet on the excellent C185, taking in some other great twisties on the way to the E2.
Best to ride from North to South in the early hours of the day when mist covers the scenic mountainous area left and right of the 102. A number 4 on a 5 scale for me, every time I ride this. Then go for a cold beer in KL. Perfect day.
Reachable from Singapore on a day trip. Good set of twisties at the start and end with a straight-ish section through a couple of villages in the middle.
My Favourite Bike Ride ever
A lot of cracking bends, great surface but you have to keep an eye out for wildlife.
need to be aware of petrol station... make sure arrive in Kota Bharu before night fall, and trailer.
I used this to get from east malaysia to the North-South Expressway. Very nice smooth corners with some elevations. Careful of a herd of elephants crossing at night
Road 55 from Kuala Kubu Bharu past Frasers Hill (Bukit Fraser) to Raub crosses the mountainous spine in the centre of Malaysia. It goes through forest in often very tight bends, so if blasting around fast corners on your big bike is your thing then this is probably not for you. The Western side is busy on weekends with people heading up to and down from the resort village, while the Eastern side never sees much traffic. We didn get to Bukit Fraser due to road works and a long wait. There is accommodation there - at a price. Depending on your destination this can make a nice alternative to the E8 motorway.
