Just changed the headlight to a bigger one, the bike looks bigger now :)
It is a Vulcan 800 Classic headlight, spent USD165 to buy it and spent 1 hour to mount it on my Magna. Love it!
here is the video i just made for my magna with the big headlight

Our trip began on Monday morning, 19th May 08. I rode to Ricky's house in Malacca the night before we left to go to the Sg Buloh R&R to meet the CK Yeong on the next morning. I want to take this opportunity to thank Ricky and his wonderful family for their hospitality. They brought me out for a nice dinner too :-)
Next morning, Ricky and I woke up at 4.30a.m. We left his house at 5a.m. to meet another new friend, Ah Heng (Honda ST1100) at the Air Keroh Tol. Ah Heng was there ahead of us. Three of us left for Sg Buloh R&R around 5.10a.m.
Around 7a.m., as planned, we reached Sg Buloh R&R and we were having our breakfast there while waiting for Yeong to arrive.
There was nothing much we can do at Fraser's Hill, we just park our bikes there and take some rest and meal, but we enjoying the chit chat with each other.
We parked our bikes here, 2 Malay girls and their father posing with our iron horses :)
Yummy...we had our meal here
"Hey! Yeong, this is the public toilet that you looking for, pay 30 cents and u can be set free now, haha"
A Japanese tourist was taking photo for his family
Yeong, Ah Heng and Ricky on "Bike Talk" - "how to make your bike shinning"
The coolest posing of the year :)

Refueled at Petronas, Kuala Kubu Bahru
In summary, I can't begin to thank all of those involved in the trip. I had never been on a bike trip to Fraser's Hill, it was a quest, a lot of corners and curves. A challenge to see if I could do it. Not only did I do it, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Again, many thanks to Ricky for housing and "feeding" me :) You and your family are wonderful.Also a gain for me to know a new friend, Ah Heng, a friendly and funny guy, great to have you joining us.
Finally, to all the members of this trip, I say...ride safe and thanks for the good times.See you guys again soon!

This time, we are going to ride to Fraser's Hill.
Fraser's Hill (Bukit Fraser) is a colonial-era hill station in Pahang state, Peninsular Malaysia.
Fraser's Hill is located 105 km north of Kuala Lumpur, around 2 hours ride.
A Brief history of Fraser's Hill.........in case you dont know :)
Fraser's Hill is named after Louis James Fraser, a Scotsman who prospected for gold in Australia but eventually struck tin here instead in the 1890s. Employing Chinese miners to do the hard work for him and earning his keep by operating mule trains down the mountain, Fraser set up opium and gambling dens to increase his profits, which may have had something to do with his subsequent mysterious disappearance. The tin ran out in 1913, but the lush valley within was rediscovered as a colonial hill resort that, thanks to its 1524m elevation, enjoys considerably cooler temperatures than Kuala Lumpur. By 1922 a road had been cut through the mountains to the valley, which soon sprouted bungalows and even one of Malaya's first golf courses.

Ride report is forthcoming :)
