Yamaha RX-Z the most Confiscated at Sungai Golok

Apparently there are also hardcore Yamaha RX-Z fans in Thailand because it is the most confiscated item at Sungai Golok.

The Malaysian Customs Department (JKDM) said the motorcycle and other cloned vehicles were the most smuggled goods through illegal bases along the Golok River during the first three months of this year.

JKDM Deputy Director General of Customs Enforcement and Compliance, Datuk Sazali Mohamad said 272 investigation papers were opened as a result of the seizures. The biggest seizure recorded was the motorcycle model and the cloned vehicles, which involved a tax-inclusive value of RM784,738.

Commenting further, he said the increase in smuggling was due to the dry season which made the Golok River shallow.

“There is no denying that with the distance of the Sungai Golok border as far as 106 kilometers, assignments are quite limited but JKDM with a membership of 500 people always helps other agencies that are more important in guarding the national border.

“We identified about 140 illegal bases along the 106 kilometers of Sungai Golok and on average there is one illegal base per kilometer.

The second highest seizure involved contraband cigarettes with a value and tax amounting to RM418,735.79.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
