Food & Drinks

There are many food and drink stalls here, and there’s something to cater for every appetite. Coffees, fruit juices, kebabs, chicken, noodles, and rice dishes are all available. The rotisserie chicken looked really good.

The Moto Show

On Saturday a large bike exhibition and competition was held. Among the bikes that could be seen were classic and retro bikes competing in the Open category, Hondas, Yamaha, Suzukis, and Kawasakis competing in the Kapcai categories, and several custom bikes and big bikes. Biker clubs from all across Malaysia came together to make this event possible.

Biker Gear

Besides the assorted food and drinks, are several booths selling paraphernalia, accessories, clothes, and souvenirs for bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts. Look for the booths selling racing jerseys to the left of the main stage. Several name-brands wares can be seen on sale, such as Shoei, Alpinestars, HJC Helmets,  and Timsun Tyres.

The Rock Show

On Friday night, the crowd was entertained by the band Dinamik, who have a very charismatic frontman, and a very steady drummer. The band belted out original material and cover songs amplified by a very solid sound system. The use of pyrotechnics have to be commended.

Takeaways from  Himpunan 2 Roda 2022

The Good

This event was a breath of much-needed fresh air to Taiping, with bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the country spending their weekend here. Guessing from the turnout, this could have possibly been the largest event in Taiping since the Covid-19 Movement Restriction Orders were lifted.


The Bad

Bands playing their hearts out to static, silently-appreciative audiences. One frontman even had to ask “tepuk sikit” (clap a little).


The Ugly

There were so many people who weren’t wearing facemasks walking about and socialising.
