What is the best time of year to come?
Any time of year. The “Wet Season” is from October to February, however we ride all year round, and when it does rain, it RAINS, but it soon stops and it’s always warm.
Do I have to come on a set tour dates?
No. We’d love to see you any time. You may join up with another small group or just go riding with Terry or Bryan.
Can I bring a pillion?
Yes, we’ll limit the routes to tarmac roads. If we do go on gravel the support truck is in attendance to carry the pillion to safer ground.
What is the food like?
At Sinurambi we eat both Eastern and Western style food. If you want to stick to western food it’s no problem, Italian, Spanish, German restaurants are easily available. There are KFC’s, MacDonald’s, Burger Kings and Pizza Huts around town but, if you are slightly adventurous, Sabah offers some of the finest, freshest and most varied food in the world.
I am a vegetarian?
No problem. The range of fresh fruit and veggies here is astounding.
Where do we stay when not at “Sinurambi”
When we are away we stay in the best hotels available or superb private villas.
What is the standard of Medical care in this part of the world?
There is a first class private medical care in Kota Kinabalu. Sabah Medical Centre is located in a brand new “state of the art” hospital. Most of their Doctors and Surgeons are trained in the US, UK or Australia. Remember, the bikes are insured but you are not! You MUST get medical insurance before you come to Sabah.
There is malaria in Sabah but it is rare and we avoid the malarial areas. Westerners, who have lived here for years, do not take anti-malarial pills but it’s your call.
Everyone should be vaccinated against hepatitis wherever they live.
Always a problem for Westerners new to the tropics and exacerbated on a bike. Always carry bottled water and drink lots. We do!
There is a simple deterrent to bringing prohibited substances into Malaysia. It’s called DEATH. Don’t even think about it.
