Besides his well-known affinity for guitars, DPM Wong also holds Class 2, 2A, and 2B licences which he picked up when he was a student in the United States. At one point in his life, he once owned a Suzuki street bike and a scooter for a period of time which he used to shuttle to and fro work. 

Upon finding out about the event, he said that he was “glad to have the opportunity to ride with Riders Aid Singapore this time to support a good cause.”

DPM Wong autographed the motorcycle that was used during the event which will be kept as a display piece in Royal Enfield’s dealership in Ubi.
