So the previous posting was more like a preview and this post was about the actual flag off event at Merdeka Palace on 26/11/2011.
I reached the venue around 8am. Many local bikers were already gathering (some say 40 some say 50 local bikers) around to support the Ducati Multistrada Borneo Experience event.
All kinds of bikes were there.
Ducati Multistrada surrounded =)
Police bike surrounded :)
Whops. blur photo!
Datuk SM Zulkifli SM Amin who is NAZA Group of Companies Group Chief Operating Officer giving his speech.
I didnt catch his name, but I think he is from Ducati.

Police stopping traffic while everyone gets in line.
Suddenly my angle was blocked by reporters ~_~' sad.
Change angle... what to do...
Big bikes going all the way to the end. Awesome!
I love this shot. Heh! I tried to get the reflection on the mirror to show his helmet.. almost made it!
Check out this video created by my friend a photo enthusiast.
It was a cool event, too bad was not able to join the whole convoy. For more details on the event. Head to http://www.smf.net.my/. Hopefully they enjoyed their trip here, and more events like this come our way =)
