RIDE N’ SEEK is a host driven motorcycle travel documentary set in Malaysia. The host, Jaime Dempsey, is a bubbly blonde American Biker girl who begins an epic road trip to travel through every state of Peninsular Malaysia to explore both the mainstream and “off the beaten track” locations and activities.

She is funny, irreverent, quirky, unpredictable and up for anything. She actively seeks out the unusual and participates in all of the activities she stumbles upon. Sometimes she fails and sometimes she succeeds but she always has a great time participating and immersing herself in the local culture. In each episode she meets interesting people who shares fast facts and the history of the state, she also takes part in some amazing activities at each location.

Riding on a Harley, Jamie digs out the best and the most unusual things to do in Malaysia. The route she plans will take her off the highway and onto small roads often bypassed by modern travelers. These long winding roads meander through sleepy little kampung towns well off the beaten track and unknown to the majority of travelers. Along the way she meets fascinating local people, experiences the variety of the country and sees Malaysia in a way that only the freedom of two wheels can give you.

This is the real “rough guide” to Malaysia and paves the way for those who have always dreamed of touring Malaysia in this way. Jamie follows the road less traveled and seeks out uniquely Malaysian things to do in hard to reach places. From action adventure to serene beauty, this series brings to light what very few get to see.

Shot in HD and incorporating mini cameras mounted on the bikes, the viewer will have a bird’s eye view of the journey from the perspective of the rider.

Short synopsis –

Jaime Dempsey is determined to tread a new path through Peninsular Malaysia. Riding through the country on a Harley, she takes us off the beaten track to visit places best reached on two wheels. On the way she rides almost everything there is in the country; from a Formula car to a mountain bike to an ostrich and even a big plastic ball. There’s no stopping the irreverent Jaime; in every state she meets a local personality who gives her tips on the best places to visit and the most delicious of local delicacies to try. This is a journey that showcases the great variety that there is in Malaysia and sets the stage for more motorbiking adventures through Asia…


Starting in Johor Bahru, our intrepid traveler heads north along the east coast through Pahang, Terengganu, Kelantan, Perak, Selangor and Malacca before the journey comes to an end.

Episode 1: JOHOR
Johor is the starting point for the journey and a great way to get into the swing of things. Jamie gets a brief introduction to the geography and history of the state and some fast facts on the things Johor is famous for. Jamie meets the owner of Big Loud Rides (BLR) who gives her the inside scoop on some activities that she can do in Johor. Armed with the inside information, Jamie decides to explore the town and heads to the Glass Temple. She gets a personalized tour of this fascinating Hindu temple by the priest himself.

BLR has told Jamie about a local racetrack that was once the venue for the world motorcycle championships. Some of the biggest stars of the time used to race there, including World Champion Mick Doohan and Ken Roberts Jr so she heads to Pasir Gudang to try a few laps of this historic circuit. After testing out her bike, she meets ex-Formula One driver, Alex Yoong. He puts her in a Formula car and she has a go on the circuit.

After saying goodbye, Jamie heads to a cool local hangout called Lost Malaya to meet some local Harley riders. The next morning her ride begins in earnest and it’s time to pack the miles under her seat. Before she sets off she meets Malaysian adventure rider Alex Wong who advises her on the best way to do the trip safely and gives her tips on some of the things she should and should not do.

After saying goodbye to Alex, Jamie hits the road. Along the ride she sees a crocodile farm and an Ostrich farm and ends up feeding a 130-year-old crocodile and riding an ostrich.

Jaime has traveled into Pahang and is sightseeing along the way. Beautiful beaches and vistas abound as she follows the coastal road towards Kuantan. On the way she stops by the royal city of Pekan for a quick tour around the historic city. Heading towards Cherating, she stops at the world famous kite-boarding destination, Balok Beach. As a keen surfer, Jaime is keen to try this sport and stops to give it a try.

Jaime arrives at the beautiful beach town and backpacker’s paradise of Cherating. She stays at Ruby’s Place, a tiny hotel with a private beach and a turtle sanctuary. Jamie builds a fire on the beach and reflects on the journey thus far.

The next day Jamie heads up to Kuala Terengganu with a few stops along the way. Terengganu was the first state to receive Islam in 1303 and was a vassal state to Siam until power was transferred to the British in 1909. The state is famous for its boat-building heritage and the tradition continues to this day. We visit a master boat builder and learn what it takes to build one of these amazing old boats.

After exploring the town, Jaime heads to the amazing Crystal Mosque, the centerpiece of the state. She is given a guided tour of the shining glass monument and learns a little bit about Islam. Jaime’s goal is to eat at least one local delicacy in every state.

Leaving the coast behind, Jamie heads inland towards Lake Kenyir where she stays on a houseboat. It is a beautiful sanctuary and the largest man-made lake in Southeast Asia. She gets to swim with the fishes and ends her day reflecting on her journey thus far.

Kelantan is a hidden gem and home to the most fascinating of Malay traditions. Jaime meets an old war historian who shows her some old relics including an old tree that still bears bullet scars. She also picks up some fascinating information on the Pacific War, which actually started in Kelantan. Jaime rides the wind again, this time trying her hand at Wau (kite) flying, songkat and batik making.

Jaime takes a ride around the island and spends a night at a heritage hotel to round off her colonial adventure. Heading south towards Ipoh, Jaime meets Marcus Ozwald and his friends for a 4×4 adventure. Marcus is a regular competitor in the Rainforest Challenge and Jaime gets to drive one of these hybrid beasts.

Heading south to Bernam River, Jaime then meets Capt Andreas, who runs a flight school. Jaime leaves the familiarity of the ground and two wheels as he takes her up in a Cessna to teach her how to fly.

After that tasty excursion, Jaime meets the Red Warriors motorcycle stunt team. This team has some young stuntwomen who do stunts for a living and Jaime gets to participate with the team.

Short on time and nearing the end of her trip, Jaime’s last stop is the historic town of Malacca. She meets Bibik Kim Neo. Kim is a famous local actor who plays a character called Bibik Nonya.

Short synopsis:
Jaime meets with Malaysian songstress and DJ Sarimah Ibrahim and heads to the historic city of Malacca to dine on authentic Nyonya cuisine with Bibik Kim Neo.


Born in Illinois, but raised in England, Jaime spent her formative years studying in the UK and traveling around Europe. She caught the travel bug pretty young and has always been looking for new places to go and new things to try. An interest in art took her to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA and it is there that she took up Photography. She spent about 6 years working as a photographer in the Philadelphia area and shot everything from architecture to local celebrities. Her favorite part of shooting people was putting together their “look”. Soon this love had her exchanging her camera for a steamer and a rack of clothes and she spent the next few years as a stylist.

Eventually the travel & adventure bug kicked in again and Jaime found herself riding her motorcycle 3000 miles to the West coast and landing in Los Angeles. She took up riding about 8 years ago and has owned such bikes as a Yamaha XS650, Harley Iron 883, and a Ducati Monster 695. California is a great place to live for people who love riding. All year round Jaime and her gang of SoCal riders take trips up the coast or to the dessert. She loves the thrill of splitting lanes and maneuvering the twisting roads in the hills. Riding motorcycles isn’t the only great thing about living in SoCal, the mountains are only a few hours away from the city for snowboarding, and the waves at the ocean only a 30 minute ride in the other direction are great for surfing. Jaime has since become a real California girl.

When first moving to Los Angeles she kept up with her styling and spent a good amount of time on sets for shows like LA Ink. She has also styled celebrities such as Pit Bull and Ving Rhames. Living in LA has also given Jaime the chance to appear briefly on the shows Entourage and Hell’s Kitchen. Though she hasn’t spent much time in front of the camera, she has worked in the industry long enough not to be intimidated by it and finds it to be really fun!

Currently, she has found a place where she can combine her love of fashion with her extreme sport and adventure seeking personality at Volcom. There she works with designers and merchandisers to create fashionable yet functional swim wear for young surfer girls everywhere.

Jaime will never stop looking for new adventures, and she has always believed in taking every opportunity that comes her way!
