1MALAYSIA RECORD: 5,000 will converge in Putrajaya on Nov 11
KAJANG: MORE than 70 superbikers from various associations in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Negri Sembilan were briefed on the dos and don'ts for the upcoming 1Malaysia Bike Week.
The programme, organised by the Superbikers Association Malaysia, is touted to be the biggest superbike gathering in Malaysia, with more than 5,000 bikers taking part.
Federation of Superbikers Association of Malaysia secretary-general Sulaiman Samia'an briefed the group, comprising mainly association presidents and their deputies, at a three-hour gathering here last night.
Sulaiman reminded those present on what was expected of participants during the convoy, which would start in Johor Baru on Nov 6.
He emphasised safety as some 355 bikers were expected to cover all the states in Peninsular Malaysia in a week.
The convoy will end in a record setting gathering of about 5,000 bikers in Putrajaya on Nov 11, where Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak will ride a superbike for 18km.
Sulaiman also reminded members on their commitment to perform charity and community work at their stops in all the states.
He said a fund to help the Myanmar Rohingya would also be launched in Johor Baru.
Besides charity, Sulaiman said the bikers wanted to change the perception towards bikers and show that not all bikers were Mat Rempit.
"We also hope to become a role model to youngsters. All bikers are united and take care of each other."
