There was a saying “Rome was not built in a day” which means, success doesn’t come easy (I think lah!) The same goes to our group, the Royale Riders. I remembered we started off as friends who came from different bikers’ group such as GMC, Bradir, Howling Metal and so on over a cup of coffee. Then, we began contacting each other frequently when there were invitations from government agencies to display our bikes at their special events. By then, our chat group admin decided to call us as TTS Royale.

As our interest in riding grew, some of us had silently talked about registering the group with one of the government bodies in Sarawak. Many of us were unaware of this plan, including me. Unfortunately, right before the work on registration started, the group was hit by a big wave; it started to break into pieces due to a major crisis among its members, so the plan was postponed.
Thank goodness, it was only a pruning process, whereby the admin cut all the bad branches from the tree. It may looked mean, but I guessed, that’s what a leader had to do in ensuring the survival of a group.
When the members regroup, they became stronger and united, so I came out with the idea of pushing the group to register as a legal club once again and glad they agreed to it. We had a few meetings and the process was tedious because I had to prepare a very long club constitution as required by the ministry.
After all the hard work, we finally submitted all our documents to the ministry in August 2015 and waited only for 8 working days to be informed by them that, our club had successfully been registered as The Royale Riders. Without further a due, we brought our families, who had been supporting us in our hobby, to D11 Steamboat, Kuching for a scrumptious dinner.
The food here is delicious but crowded due to its popularity among Kuchingnites.
We’re looking forward to more interesting and bigger projects to come. Announcing our first major project is the Serian Bike Fest which will be held on 24th October 2015. The main organiser is Yellowbean Ent. Hopefully it will be a success. Till then…bye! Adios Amigos!
