Bikers from across the Causeway rode to Bukit Merah in the annual X’clusive Kembara Amal convoy recently. They had been to Port Dickson, Kuala Terengganu and Shah Alam previously. Since it was Visit Perak Year 2012, Perak became their destination this year.
Started by Rider Speed Machine, a team of motorbike enthusiasts, the Singapore-Perak ride was done to raise funds for orphans and the disabled in Bukit Merah and Taiping. Over RM5,000 was collected and handed over to the recipients earlier on.
Petrol for the 131 bikers was sponsored by Mr Klaus Bosshammer. Klaus hoped more funds could be collected next year.
