About 350 big bikers, including 10 women from around the world, are expected to take part in the 12th Borneo Island International Big Bike Festival (BIIBBF) 2011 from June 10 to 12 in Kota Kinabalu.
This annual event hosted by big bike clubs from Sabah, Labuan, Brunei, Sarawak and Indonesia was established to gather all big bikers and over the years, it has become a big draw.
“The 12th BIIBBF has now become the largest bike convoy festival ever in the history of Sabah, thanks to the support from sponsors, Sabah Tourism Board, City Hall, Royal Malaysian Police, Fire and Rescue Department, Road Transport Department, private sectors and government agencies,” the organiser said.

The club will act as an advertising agent to create funds for charity. The three-day convoy will cover a distance of about 283km starting at Sutera Harbour Kota Kinabalu heading to Ranau, Kota Belud and back to Kota Kinabalu on June 11.
They will go on a city tour on June 12 ending at Lintasan Daesoka where a big bike exhibition courtesy of City Hall will be displayed. The public are advised to avoid travelling through the Ranau road to avoid congestion on Saturday morning till afternoon due to the huge convoy.
