Mat Rempit Ghostly Ride
A motorcyclist’s encounter with an unexpected encounter with the truly ride.
Nazimi’s work as a dispatch driver for a solicitor company for the town of Alor Setar in Kedah. Nazimi is a self confessed Mat Rempit where practically every night he takes off on his specially modified bike to perform stunts, showing off (to impress the girls) but basically, I guess, he is simply bored.
One night, a few years ago, after “performing” their tricky stunts on their motorbikes and evading the police, they adjoun to their favourite ‘teh tarik’ stall. Over endless drinks, they will relate tales of their exploits to everybody who will listen. By that time, it was already after 4am before they finally got it a night.
A Pictorial of a Mat Rempit
Nazimi took off on his motorbike speeding away to the road leading to his kampong. There were not many lamp posts and therefore the lights were not really adequate but enough to get by. As he was riding alone on his bike, he was suddenly overtaken by a black colour motorbike..it was a Yamaha 250cc.
A Yamaha 250cc
The Yamaha was just cruising just behind Nazimi for a few minutes before picking up speed at tremendous speed and flashed away..Alamak! Nazimi had to control his motorbike, as he was shock and seriously taken aback as the Yamaha’s rider was non-existent! In other words, there was no rider on the Yamaha bike – just the bike only. The thought that the Yamaha bike was happily travelling by itself with no rider was impossible to understand.
Nazimi had to pull to the side of the road, as he was shivering uncontrollably at the riderless Yamaha. It took at least 10 minutes to sufficiently calm himself before riding back home.
His mum found huddled in bed and he has to take a week before he got back to work…Seram!
