Top Story 2010!

There would be a short rally ride on 1st August, Sunday, 12noon at Esso, Gelang Patah, JB, Malaysia. It is to welcome the first official couple from Singapore that had circumnavigated the globe on their 'last minute' motorcycle. They had traveled thro Asia, Europe, Africa, South America, North America, Oceania and back to Asia via East Timor and Indonesia. Their journey started since 1st January 2008.

The coupled had various anonymous records: they are the first couple from Singapore and maybe Southeast Asia to

1) Circumnavigated round the world on a motorcycle without any companionship and backup support vehicle.

2) Traveled on a motorcycle from Ushuaia (Argentina) to Arctic Circle (Alaska, USA) using the Pan American Highway (the world's longest "motorable road" according to Guinness World Record).

3) The first couple in the world that had lost the motorcycle before the round the world trip.

Upon reaching Singapore land, the Singapore flag would be raised on their bike and would ride with it to Clementi Ave 2 with the convoy.

Their record and success for the round the world trip would also dedicate to Singapore’s 45th Birthday!

Please join them for the ride.

Lets look back the inspirational journey of Goh Mia Chun and Samantha Pan Ling Hong since 2007.

SINGAPORE : A young husband-and-wife team has embarked on a journey of a lifetime - an 18-month trip around the world on a motorbike.

Goh Mia Chun and his wife Pan Ling Hong quit their jobs to go on this trip that will take them through 48 countries.

"My motive is to see as much as possible, to experience as much as possible and to see the world," said Goh.

If they succeed, they'll be the first Singapore couple to complete this route.
It has taken them five years to plan the trip and there have been bumps along the way.
They spent S$40,000 on a motorbike and modifications such as a larger fuel tank.

But their motorbike was stolen in October while travelling in Malaysia.
The couple had to spend 40% of their budget to buy a replacement.
Shortly before leaving, the couple prayed before locking up their home.

Fellow bikers accompanied them to Tuas Checkpoint to give them a proper send-off on their marathon journey.
