A brief personal intermission: An anniversary


14/3/2015: Today last year, with a motley crew of eleven, I started riding my Triumph Explorer on a spiritual adventure that I thought would surely be enough to last a lifetime. We would spend 60 days and over 18,000 km on the saddles of the motorcycles through a dozen countries. Another ten blessed days were spent in Madinnah and Makkah.
I wish I was there now ...

    Touching ending with the recitation of labbaikallah. How we wish we were there.

    Salam Datuk. Thank you so very much for the beautiful film of your expedition and very moving ending. Most of us won't have that opportunity to travel through all those breathtaking places which then culminates in the most holiest places in the world.

    Great video Rocky, how you seague pink floyd into labbaik allah...(and i wonder how some ostard will intrepret it)

    but the muslim undertones jarrs with the actual knowledge and technologies that made your video and travel possible..

    there is nothing that our muslim brothers had contributed - the bikes, the leather, the navigation equipment, the backup and support systems, the recording equipment, your sunglasses etc...

    muslims today had contributed nada to them. we are just consumers.

    sorry, but thats what i remembered about it. salams

  8. Alhamdullilah, Bro Rock. Rendering PInk Floyd musical since College days brought about many fond memories. Sd does ending the verse in Mecca n Medina , not only memories come to light but new soul are found to lead a new path in life for eternity. Syukran .
