Around 30 motorcyclists and enthusiasts from all districts gathered in the capital last Wednesday, to commemorate the 74th birthday of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam.

With Bandar Seri Begawan as their starting-point, the riders headed for the Temburong District along a route which took them past iconic landmarks, including Istana
Nurul Iman.

Several female riders from Brunei were among the participants from Sabah, Sarawak, Kuala Lumpur and Indonesia, during the cross-country trip themed ‘Happy Birthday, Your Majesty; We Love You’.

Head of the female motorcyclists Haslina binti Bujang said, “The convoy was well-organised. It was controlled by the leader whom we had to follow. There was no way that any riders could speed up or break the road safety rules.”

Samra binti Haji Sulaiman, a participant from the Brunei-Muara District said, “This was our way of showing our love to His Majesty and also to convey our best wishes…May Allah the Almighty bless His Majesty with long life and good health.”

Leader of the Group for Brunei Bikers Haji Mohammed Noor bin Haji Adinin thanked the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) for approving the event, as well as Radio Television Brunei (RTB) for the coverage of their journey.
