From the neon-lit streets of Tokyo, where the Bōsōzoku (暴走族)tear through the night with their vibrant displays of rebellion, to the North-South Expressway flanked by palm tree plantations, where the Mat Rempit weave through traffic with audacious skill, motorcycle subcultures have left an indelible mark across the globe. In Great Britain, the Mod epitomize style and sophistication, while in America, the Outlaw motorcycle clubs command both fear and fascination with their outlaw ethos. Yet, amidst this rich tapestry of motorcycle culture. Singapore has its own storied history that should not be ..read more

從出發點基拉爾到附近其他主要城鎮的距離 基拉爾(Killar)位於喜馬偕爾邦最西北部,是一個即將成為城鎮的鄉鎮。這裡是前往基斯特瓦爾(Kishtwar)或基隆(Keylong)方向的重要中途站,對於穿越該地區的人來說,具有關鍵的位置。儘管如此,基拉爾僅有一兩家旅館,這裡不是遊客的熱門勝地,而更像是一個實用的中途休息站。我們從馬尼拉 (Manali) 騎行到這裡,距離230公里,這裡是我們旅程的起點,我們將啟程前往聲名狼藉的基拉爾-基斯特瓦爾公路,該公路是26號州道的一部分(也被稱為基隆-坦迪-基斯特瓦爾公路)。 人生總是能夠適應並找到生存之道 基拉爾至基什特瓦爾的懸崖公路。 危險嗎? 在我們進入基拉爾之前,我們已做好了準備,預計接下來的一天將面對著崎嶇的道路。隨著海拔的提升,道路變得越來越不平坦,甚至已經看不到曾經存在過的柏油路面。散落在周圍的大石塊和山上掉下來的岩石,是落石的痕跡和警告的標誌。急速湍急的瀑布由山上融化的雪水形成,更加增添了道路的挑戰。跨越溪流是探險車手的的喜愛,但當這樣的情景每天都要經歷十幾次時,也會變得有些煩厭。在如此崎嶇不平的道路上駕駛摩托車已經相當困難,我們最不希望遇到的是濕滑的地面。儘管面臨著這些困難和考驗,我不斷提醒自己,這就是我來到這裡的原因。這是我保持身心平衡的唯一安慰。 位於基拉爾郊區某處的潘吉山谷 (Pangi Valley ..read more

Their reluctance often stems from concerns about border bureaucracy, infamous traffic congestion, and their own confidence. Singapore, confined to an island of 28km x 49km, with around 9,500 lane-km of roads and nesting at the southern tip of the vast Eurasian landmass. While our strategic maritime location has propelled economic prosperity, for passionate motorcyclist, this geographic advantage turns to a disadvantage. The only option for an ‘exotic’ rid ..read more
