Did anyone see the Star story on the Mat Rempit demonstration in Penang? Since their emergence in the Malaysian consciousness Mat Rempits have been called dregs of society, road menaces and even gangsters but never were they a force for social or political change.

Mat Rempits want to Selamatkan Penang (save Penang) and also demand a Mat Rempit race track while they were at it. But there is one saving grace. Someone in the organising committee must have a good sense of humour. The Mat Rempits were dressed in YELLOW!!! Awwright!!!
Here is Wikipedia's description of Mat Rempit for the uninitiated...
