Johor Sultan surprises residents with candid visits on motorcycle

Johor’s Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar is known for his love of cars and motorcycles, and some residents got to witness the royal leader in action over the weekend.

Riding on a Honda Dash Wave motorcycle, the suave Sultan Ibrahim made an impromptu visit to the Istana Bukit Serene crown arch on Saturday (Oct 21).

There, he mingled with surprised visitors and even took photos with a bride and groom who were on their wedding photoshoot.

It was one of the rare times the sultan interacted with members of the public candidly, and he appeared to be in a pleasant mood as families with children greeted him.

The ruler later also paid a visit to residents at Kampung Lepau on a different motorbike, and posted photos and a video of the visit on his Facebook page.
