I remembered last year, in 2015, the club talked about organising Bau Bike Week (BBW) but, it was only a topic over a cup of coffee. To my surprised, we walked the talk, where a proposal was submitted to Dato Henry Harry Jinep, Tasik Biru assemblyman, by one of our club members, lobbying for his patronage. I guessed due to his tight schedule, the proposal went silent.
As Dato Henry is enthusiastic about big bikes, he bought himself two 650cc Honda bikes from Huat Bing, Batu Kawah and ever since he got his hands on these bikes, he invited us for a few rides around Bau, Lundu and Tebedu since January 2016. He called it as a “Stress Reliever” activity. And guess what? I didn’t have a single clue that he was also running for the state election last April under the flagship of Barisan Nasional. Anyway, putting politics aside, our proposal finally caught his attention in May and we had series of serious discussions after that; Meeting after meeting, riding after riding…hehehe

Dato Henry thinks BBW is really a good event for the Bau community as it could attract tourists to Bau and make Bau a happening town. He wishes it to be a yearly event for Bau and with that in mind, he asked three motorcycle clubs to jointly organise the event, namely the Royale Riders (TRR), Tikuan Bikers Club (TBC) and Bikers Dayak Borneo (BDB). These clubs have members mostly residing in Bau.

Therefore, after the details were scrutinised, the first BBW in 2016 will be from 27 to 28 August at Tasik Biru. So, register early to get BBW package for only RM90.00.
