A few pictures taken during the ride, so far one of the best ride ever! So who cares whether it's done on 110cc or 1200cc but we did 1,400km on it with minor hiccups.

Ride hard, Ride safe.

Hahahahha... I like your words bro! Because in Jakarta, some people thought that having a big bore bike is a prestige due to the regulation here for daily used is under 250cc, so if you want to have a big bore bike, you have to pay much higher.. maybe about 200% from the original price.. and some of big bore bike owner think that any motorcycle small cc are not their "level" to hang out.. hahahha.. what a pity! But not all of them like that, some of them are my friends and truly bikers.

South Sulawesi? U mean Manado? woow.. there's where my mom come from.. I believe you're enjoying your ride there, because sulawesi has a lot of beautiful scenery and beach.. And they have a very good food either!

One of my friend from Jakarta, Haryo (H17) has come back from riding in Malaysia and woooww, you have a lot of beautiful places too there with a very great road condition. I believe my baby 200 will be like a bicycle along the highway there hahahaha..

Nice to have friend Satu Rumpun.. Let's just forget about the political differentiation between our country, because every riders are brother, am I correct?

Salam,

We didn't go to Manado only at Makassar & entire southern regions.
Yes, Sulawesi is beautiful, beaches & mountains & the people and not forgetting the sea food.

Those highways & good roads are in the peninsular Malaysia, aki reside in Sarawak which is the eastern part of Malaysia, sharing boundaries with Brunei & Kalimantan. In this part of the country, the road isn't as good as our counterpart in peninsular.

Big bore bikes meant nothing if they collect dust parked in the garage rather than out there on the road.

Ride hard, Ride safe.

Hi Aki,

looks like you had a great trip to Ujung Pandan/Makasar, that is one Indoneian I land I have not yet visited. You are right about cc's you can have more fun on bad roads on small bikes than big ones. In 1982 I did 3300km in six weeks around Sumatra on a Honda C90, in those days many raods were mud in the rainy season, a big bike woould just get stuck.

Ride safe.

Hi Griffin,

I read you RR of the trip to Thailand, great stuff. I was not on the Cambodia trip, I ride mostly alone, cos i don't know to many other bikers in Malaysia, and travel a lot for work. We should meet up some time, I live in Mont Kiara, and am around most weekends.

Take care.
Dean in KL

@ Dean & T-Redz, it's the ride that matters not the bike UNLESS you're in one of these roads in the jungle.


Jungle twisties - unforgiving!


Oops what's on the other side?


As far as your eyes could see, no human on sight!
This is the time you wish that you brought a spare tank of fuel with you. Oh shit! my last engine service is long overdue! Pray hard that your bike doesn't break down or your tyre tube holds.
I love this feeling!
