Malaysia-Sri Lanka Friendship Ride 2014

Local firm Buzzword Sdn Bhd will be organising the first ever large cc motorcycle convoy ride in Sri Lanka, open exclusively to Malaysian bikers and owners of bikes above 500cc.

The ride will be the first of its kind ever held in the island nation, and riders will go into the record books for being the first riders to ride bikes larger than 350cc around the nation. The convoy ride will take approximate 14 days and is scheduled to take place next year starting from March 21 until April 3.

Organizers have undertaken special arrangements with the local Sri Lankan authorities, with plans of riding into some of Sri Lanka’s notable sites and town. Highlights include a visit in the religious city of Kandy, followed by a ride into Sri Lanka’s east coast seaside retreat of Trincomalee, as well as an excursion and two-nights stay in the former war-torn town of Kilinochi especially hosted by the Sri Lankan Armed Forces.

Only bikes above 500cc will be allowed to join, with shipping services to and from Sri lanka available. Interested riders need only pay an entrance fee of RM8,200 per person that is inclusive of accommodation, meals, heritage site entrance fees, two meals daily, and a support crew. Riders who wish to bring along a pillion will need to add another RM6,700 per person. Organisers states that shipping and freight charges would cost RM5,300 both ways per bike, whilst fuel costs and air tickets will be borne by participants.
