    Hello,

    I'm planning to do a solo 5-6 day trip from Labuan Bajo to Maumere in early March. I think I've found a few places that will rent one-way for a price, my only question is this - is there enough unpaved road between the two to justify an enduro? I'll probably go: Ruteng - Bajawa - Ende - Kelimutu - Maumere. I'd love to get on some remote gravel roads if possible. Do you think that schedule is too tight to go out of the way? Thanks.

    Not been to Indonesia...
    But have traveled all over Asia on a Yamaha Mio GT125 scoot..
    I live in Thailand half the year..
    a scoot is good for 200km a day..
    just hire a 14 or 17" wheel one if doing gravel...
    Honda wave or Yamaha Fin...
