Motorbike clubs – there is almost always a certain negative connotation whenever these two words come together.
Flashing images of wheelie stunts and zooming riders may come to mind but rest assured, these clubs admit only gentlemen (and in one particular case, ladies) who hold road ethics close to heart.
Claiming their coveted spot as one of Malaysia’s pioneer motorcycle clubs, this communal group of bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts have garnered a wide rapport ever since their inception back in 1992. Eligible for high-powered motorcycles of 500cc engine capacity and above, this club is not only big in machines but the heart as well – they’re well known as a regular organiser for the 3 Nation Charity Ride Event in order to raise money for various charity organizations.
With two of its founders being ladies, Throttle Riot have indeed done away with the conventional masculine image often associated in the biker’s scene. With a catchy and couldn’t-care-less motto of ‘riding kick-ass motorcycles and having fun’, their most recent success with the Moto &Gincu event gathered 70-odd female bikers for a convoy to commemorate International Women’s Day.
