KMOG Borneo Ride 2017 (Day Three)

first_imgThe food was simple yet tasty, and enjoyed the great hospitality. The restaurant’s owner had even treated us to the “UFO tart,” unique to Sandakan.From there, it was a quick jaunt to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre.The facility is located at the fringe of the Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve, and as apparent from its name, it rescues orphaned orangutans and rehabilitate them for life in the wild.It opens at certain hours to the public called, during feeding time. The orangutans are fed twice daily.The facility features a boardwalk raised above the swampy land below. It leads to the main viewing area, where the orangutans get together for their meal time.That done, we got back on our bikes and made our way to the hotel in Sandakan.We were given a couple of hours to freshen up before we headed out to dinner at the famous Tai Lau steamboat restaurant.“Dinner” was the inappropriate word for it. It was a 10-dish feast as KMOG had ordered a multi-meal course consisting of steamed fish, squid, mussels (lala), braised vegetables, kung pow chicken, stir-fried green vege, prawn platter, crabs fried with salted egg and fruits for dessert!With our tummies full, it was time to fill up the bikes ahead of tomorrow’s long leg. The final stop is Keningau, but instead of riding back through the route we had come in on, we are going to ride south to Tawau, before turning west, over the Crocker Range. It promises to be the most epic part of the KMOG Borneo Ride 2017.PICTURE GALLERY It was lovely. Good aroma with a full body and just the right amount of acidity. Slightly sweet, slightly sour, but not bitter. With a great view to boot! We were told to stay out of this guy’s way We rode from Kundasang, through Ranau, to Sepilok before stopping at Sandakan. Outside the hotel at Kundasang Group photo before continuing on the ride –Ads– Kundasang, 3rd November 2017 – Day Three of the KMOG Borneo Ride 2017 started from the Mount Kinabalu Heritage Resort & Spa in Kundasang, for Sandakan. Today’s ride reminded us the meaning of “adventure riding.”Click here for Day One of the KTM Malaysia Owners Group’s (KMOG) Borneo Ride 2017. Click here for Day Two of KMOG Borneo Ride 2017.As usual, we got early for a simple yet hearty breakfast at the hotel. The exception though, was the crisp and chilly mountain air, which accompanied us. Almost everyone went outside afterwards to draw lungfuls of it.As we arrived after dark last night, we couldn’t see what was beside the roads. Well, Kundasang didn’t surprise at the break of day. The hotel was situated on a hilltop tall and was surrounded by tall pine trees looked. Looking around below, were lush valleys, interspersed with little houses.However, there was a pathway which led to a viewing platform just outside the restaurant, and there, we stared at Mount Kinabalu’s crown.Ranau, the site of the devastating 2015 Sabah earthquake, was just 20km away. Looking up the side of the mountain, there were massive patches of light-coloured rocks, evidence of landslides due to the quake. Still, the mountain was beautiful and I could only wished we had scaled it to the top during this trip.The KMOG Borneo Ride 2017 convoy pushed off at exactly 8.30am, the efficient marshals made sure of that.It took just a few kilometres out of Kundasang for us to realize that the road was very narrow, much like the old Gombak-Genting Sempah road, without the landslides (and cyclists).Traffic was wonderfully light, except for a number of big trucks we encountered.However, the road’s condition increasingly deteriorated the further we rode. Many sections were uneven with plenty of potholes and patches thrown in. Legacy of the earthquake?KTM Malaysia had graciously loaned the 1290 Super Duke GT to me for this ride. There was another GT ridden by Mr. Kan and we pulled away from the middle pack to enjoy the corners. I rounded a corner and came face-to-face with section which resembled a motocross double jump! I clamped down on the brakes hard and triggered the ABS but I was too close, so I the brakes go and yanked on the throttle, because I didn’t want the rear to kick up hard and endo me into road.The bike flew but the “landing zone” was badly rutted. I caught a rut and it drove me to the road’s shoulder. I gave the bike some gas and the bike recovered itself smartly.I had set the riding mode to STREET and the damping for the electronically-controlled semi-active WP suspension to COMFORT. However, the road surface was so bad it caused the bike to wallow in midcorner. Switching to STREET helped somewhat, it was too harsh in the rough sections. Going faster than 120 km/h, helped though.I watched with jealously as the 1290 Adventure Duke T and the 1290 Super Adventure S’s suspension (also electronic) soaked up the bumps as if they weren’t there. A few riders could even relax one arm while riding.We rode past the town of Ranau, but there wasn’t time to check out the view as we concentrated on the road and traffic.We reached the Sabah Tea Resort Restaurant 36km away without incident. We got the real taste of freshly brewed Sabah tea. At the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre At a restaurant in Sepilok We rode back down the hill, whose road was a no-road. It was an unpaved gravel road with some big rocks. The GT did well, never threatening to throw away a tyre despite being more of a sport-tourer, with the emphasis on sport.It was a straight shot to Sepilok from there.We reached the Banana Cafe just in time for lunch. Stopping at the Sabah Tea Plantation for teacenter_img …and pictures The owner of restaurant treated us to the UFO cake Wefie time The guys couldn’t help monkeying around Highlights included the Sabah Tea plantation and Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre.

Japan fails to earn handball berth

first_img GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES ZADAR, Croatia – Japan missed out on gaining an Olympic berth in the men’s handball competition for the first time in 20 years on Sunday after a 44-31 defeat to Russia in the final qualifying competition for this summer’s Beijing Games.Japan made a promising start. But with the score level at 5-5, mistakes started to creep in. The Russians took a 19-13 lead at halftime before making their superior power and height pay in the second half. “Russia took advantage of our mistakes in offense and defense,” said Japan coach Kiyoharu Sakamaki. “Their players’ movement was quicker both on and off the ball. A lot of our play here was not what you would call world class.”Japan, which last played in an Olympic men’s handball event in the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul, finished in third place in its group in qualifying Tournament 3 with a 1-2 record.

Minnesota Hockey Coaches Association Wants Longer Season

first_img Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE Skip Auto (360p) UNDATED — The high school hockey season would be two weeks longer with the potential of two additional games if the Minnesota Hockey Coaches Association has its way.   Concerns over players leaving high school programs to play junior level hockey and the need for more development time has prompted the move.MHCA Executive Director Mike MacMillan says other competing organizations frequently cite the shorter high school season as reasons to leave. In order to keep up with the latest development trends, MacMillan says the kids need more ice time…You know, we’re one of the number one developers of hockey talent in the country.  Under long-term athlete development, the science says now (at the age group we’re working with) that we actually should be on the ice with them a little bit longer and they should be competing in a couple more games.St. Cloud Cathedral Activities Director Emmett Keenan isn’t opposed to the idea, but he says it’s important to put the student athlete’s best interest first…What I like to look at is what’s the educational value of it.  You know that’s what we’re doing here.  It’s education-based athletics.  One of the issues, of course, is if we start a week earlier, you create more tension for those fall athletes who are also winter athletes, basically jumping from one season to the next with no rest.Keenan says when kids leave for junior hockey, many times it is the college coach who is encouraging that player to leave their high school program to get more experience through playing more games.MacMillan says if the changes are approved, schools would have the option whether to join in a longer season or not.The proposal has been submitted to the Minnesota State High School League. It’s unclear when a decision would come. 720p HD About Connatix V56892center_img About Connatix V56892 360p 1/1 1080p HDlast_img read more

Liverpool legend’s ‘tremendous’ attack on Everton player makes the news for…

first_imgGraeme Souness isn’t shy why it comes to sharing his feelings on players, and Andre Gomes was the target for the Liverpool legend last week. Working as a pundit following Everton’s 6-2 loss to Tottenham, Souness wasn’t feeling much Christmas spirit and slammed the Portuguese midfielder for his performance.Catalan newspaper Sport have been somewhat taken aback by the rant, and made sure to point out Souness is a former Liverpool player, and a very successful Anfield legend as well.Sport and others in the Spanish media have been celebrating Gomes’ achievements since his loan move to Everton. The Goodison Park club’s fans have really taken to the Barcelona owned player and there’s already been talk of a permanent deal in the next summer transfer window.Souness felt Gomes was something of a passenger as his side was overrun by Tottenham.It certainly wasn’t one of the player’s best performances since making the move to English football, but he wasn’t the worst player for Everton, which is maybe why the ‘attack’ is catching Spanish attention.For the Toffees it may not be such a bad thing.

“I didn’t want to play in another PL club” – Tottenham…

first_imgThe defender’s contract was initially up at the end of the 2019-20 season, and with no agreement being found until December 2019, speculation was rife.Clubs like Manchester United, who needed a centre-back, were heavily linked, but they decided to make a move for Harry Maguire instead.However, even if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s club had made an adequate offer to Daniel Levy for the now 31-year-old, it appears Alderweireld wouldn’t have been interested in the move anyways.In an interview with Sport/Foot Magazine in Belgium due to be published on Wednesday, the centre-back looked back at his rather long and tedious contract situation.Embed from Getty ImagesHe said: “People thought that’s all I was thinking about but that wasn’t the case. Without being clever, I always had faith in me and knew that it would sort itself out. I was motivated because I knew that, the better I played, the more opportunities I would have, but I opted for loyalty and stability.“I’ve always tried to make the right choices: I stayed a long time at Ajax, until I won something, before going further. Here too, I think I’ve made the right choice. I didn’t want to play in another club in the Premier League because I’ve built something here.“I had played in Spain and Holland, and I preferred to stay than leave for a new adventure again, take my family with me. My challenge now is to do better here”.The centre-back has been a stalwart at Spurs under both Mauricio Pochettino and José Mourinho this season, starting 36 games from a possible 42, as well as scoring one goal and picking up another two assists along the Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!
