Throughout my 30 years of riding, rain is always a factor in deciding wheatear to stop or seek shelter, and usually if it rains too heavy, a biker will need to stop if visibility is low, or not to get the hand phone wet, but I have never encounter flash flood while seeking shelter. This was my first time experiencing flash flood.
I was on my way to return our media test bike to Glenmarie from the office, I saw the dark clouds hovering the horizon, so I decided to make a dash to Kawasaki, to return the Ninja 650. Normally a few drops of rain is no problem for me and usually I will take the Federal Highway to Glenmarie directly entering from Jalan Lapangan Terbang Subang, but this time since I felt that Federal would be raining so I cut through Ara Damansara and make a turn back to Glenmarie, but turns out as I approach Federal Highway it started to rain heavy, so
I decided to stop at the under pass. It got heavier and with-in 10 minutes the water level rose, and turn got worst with the car passing making mini waves and splashing on the divider where many bikers seeking shelter. Reason I stop was not to get my hand phone soaking wet. But more and more rain was pouring, and the motor lanes and main road was flooded!
Even when it stop raining the area that I stopped still flooding and the level was as high as my knees at one point. This is actually my first time experiencing flash flood.
