The actual event started on Satuday (26th November), but the Ducati Multistrada's were already arriving on 24/25th.
I have heard about the event from Dennis (an avid biker) then Sherrie tagged me shared link on my facebook page. And I contacted Chloe who had more details about the event. After which I finished by stuff for the day and went to see the bikes before going to the ICT fair, which also started that day. Below are some photos which I took that afternoon.
The escort cars.
The bike was bigger than I anticipated.
This seems to be an another model from Ducati.
Is it me or does the bike look like a kind of bird with beaks?
So after taking a few snaps, I paid my RM 4.00 parking (at Merdeka Palace Hotel) and headed to BCCK for the ICT Fair. Got me a 16GB USB3.0 thumb drive for RM 67.00.
In the evening, I went to pick up Sherrie, who incidentally stays nearby my house. I got lost going to her house. Then got lost again when heading towards the Astana. Traffic was slow and in the end we got there late. =.=
Below are some of my photos from the Astana, where dinner was hosted by our Yang di-Pertua of Sarawak, Tun Datuk Patinggi Abang Muhammad Salahuddin.
After the makan makan session, came the photo taking session :)
The head lights profile is very VERY nice! Wished I had more time to capture it.
Moving off to another part of the Astana for a photo session.
Hmmm orange? Its due to the yellow cast by the ambient light. When I did the standard color correct it become orange hehe !
Yup, color correction got the building white but the left bit of the photos become too "cold". heh~
One of the bikers showing Sherrie the meter cluster. =)
Mingle around for a bit before leaving.
Shot this from my car. When we left, the bikers also decided to leave.
Even police also was driving a Ducati Multistrada ^_^ wow.
We all turned in early as the next morning the actual flag off event was around 8am.
