It was like a darkar kinda feeling,...
Try this out....i travel in 1 day from Sandakan to Kota Kinabalu on our enduro 150cc bikes and was accompanied by Mr Taichiro from Japan.

We carried spare fuel just in case..our top speed was at 120-130..from hill to valley and through local village's along the way. Mind you most of the ride was ascending to about 1500mtr....imagine that...what would it do to the contained petrol in the gerry cane?...pop and you ll find petrol flying from the back of you bike! But that didnt happened as where prepared so all safety causation was taken.

We stoped along the way for some photo views,..however we never did get a good panoramic view of Mt Kinabalu. We where really lucky up to ranau...the weather was sunny and bright so we decided to have lunch at a local chinese shop. I thought,...looks sunny why not take our time..little did i know it was a bad call. At about 1400hrs after we pass the world heritage site it started to drizzle and later pour,..the visibility was really bad and it was about 5-8 meters vizz.

We mad it back to Kota Kinabalu safe and sound...but the trip was really an experience,...
