KUALA TERENGGANU: They had prepared meticulously before the nationwide journey on their British classic motorcycles last August in conjunction with the country’s 51st Merdeka Day.
But of the 25 members of the Kuala Lumpur-Selangor Brit Iron Brothers on the trip, only 10 managed to complete the club’s inaugural trip across Peninsular Malaysia.
Some of their precious wheels were the Norton Triumph, BSA A7, BSA A10, AJS, Matchless and Royal Anfield motorcycles.

Md Nayan Abdullah, proud owner of a limited edition BSA A7 String Up and among the 10 who completed the 3,030km journey, said having completed the task in a week had given the club members a great sense of achievement, especially for a club which had been formed only three years ago.
Nayan, who received the certification from MBR representative Josephine Intachat, said the club planned to tour Borneo next on their classic bikes, covering Sabah, Sarawak, Brunei and parts of Kalimantan in the next two years.
