    Three days trip due to Christmas Holiday ( 25-26-27 December 2009 ) is an absolute time for me to have a great weekend of riding. With 9 motorcycles with my office associates - Jakarta Defensive Driving Consulting - we all went for an enduro gathering. Time to test our endurance, from machine to physic. It's all about our mental.

    You must be wondering how come the small engine capacity motorcycle could run a great adventure here in Indonesia. Cub with a 110-cc mostly could manage thousand kilometres run thru islands, province to province. I would say that is amazing, it will kill the performance of bigger engine bikes.

    Let's count the participants :
    - 2 Yamaha Scorpio (one 225cc and one got bored up to more than 300cc)
    - 1 Hyosung RX 125 (i think it got bored up)
    - 1 Honda Blade 110 cc
    - 1 Honda Beat 110 cc (automatic transmission)
    - 1 Honda City Sport One 125 cc
    - 1 Yamaha Jupiter 110 cc
    - 1 Yamaha Jupiter MX 135 cc
    - 1 Kawasaki Ninja 250 cc

    Mission : the boss who rode that crazy Scorpio wanted us to test the physic and mental, also the riding skill thru unilimited speed we can afford. Also about the weather, rain is not really an obstacle. He told us to fight the rain and all kind of road in the route.

    The destination is simple :
    Etape 1 : Jakarta - Pelabuhan Ratu
    Etape 2 : Pelabuhan Ratu - Cipanas
    Etape 3 : Cipanas - Jakarta

    The different was we had to ride off the road to country side. No more main road says the boss so we travelled from different country to country. You can imagine where good and clean road will not be available. The group met an offroad comdition, from rocks, mud, slippery side, woods, and name the things you don't like. The tough challenge was we had to finish it with our limited performance of our bikes. We used on road tyres for this activities, no wonder muscles had to work harder.

    Let's see the photos shall we ...

    recklessly i didn't count the kilometres along the route. It was because of the speed of the group during the ride. Not so many chances to take pictures or signed route so i am terribly sorry could not mention the track one by one.

    hopefully i can manage one more trip to do the mapping next time ...

    the driver (bro Jusri) cornered crazily, this Daihatsu Gran Max did a great job for being stand by for our luggage ... i decided not to bring Givi E35 along with me for the rest of the way

    day 2 .. etape 2 ....
    we headed from Pelabuhan Ratu - Jampangkulon - Cianjur Selatan via Gunung Bentang ... i cannot find actual names due to fast convoy....

    no rear box so i could manage more speed to battle with these crazy guys on their bikes, normally i enjoy every kilometres i ride, but now the way went differently, skills to the end ... push push push harder ...........

    cornering , escape-riding , one hell of a ride !! :evil

    jalur nya terlalu menyiksa bracket box, bayangin masuk country road bebatuan dihajar speed kenceng ... kata bos sekalian latihan skill improvement ..

    hasilnya sasis belakang retak .... untungnya box sudah dilepas sehari sebelumnya, sisa perjalanan copot bracket ........

    shall we continue ...........

    in this part i found my rear chasis broken, perhaps the box bracket got the maximum rebound from the crazy route, fortunately i didn't bring the box along so the damage was still acceptable ...

    we rode to Jampangkulon , couple miles from Ujung Genteng but we decided the other way, reached the route of Gunung Bentang, the road took us Cianjur Selatan (West Java).

    The journey and adventure was not enough without falling ... damn i slipped in one of the corners, slippery ... when i headed right i put my leg to pedal lately when suddenly a truck was already in front of me ... i tried to avoid head-to-head crash and land my bike into muddy part of the road, ......

    brukkkkk ................ all body protectors went fine to cover my falling, i'm okay :rofl ............ my friend Herry was behind me came laughing saw me falling, great way of falling ...

    We landed finally at Mandala Kencana (or something like that, i forgot to take pictures of the hotel name) ... all bikes and riders successfully landed with a joyful heart ...

    these are the pictures :
