    This is a nice waterfall and it is a refreshing place
    to sit and contemplate life.

    The water so cold and there is small pond beneath
    the waterfall which is safe for visitor to play the water.

    As at first you may think not want to play the water
    but the temptation is too hard to resist.

    This waterfall is located on the Prigen area, so in the
    branch of the road which is to Tretes and Trawas,
    so take left to Tretes area. Location is not far from
    main street but rather secluded so not many visitor
    know this waterfall.

    Just 1 hour ride from my home, this is one of a series
    of Hindu Temples on a trail up Penanggungan mountain.

    This temple was built in 997 AD by a Balinese King
    when he married a Javanese princess.

    Water constantly gushes out the hillside to fill
    the stone pools below. You can bath here if you
    really wish to, it is divided into male and female
    bathing areas.

    If certain reports are to be believed, then we could say that Kawasaki
    Indonesia is secretly working on a new motorcycle, which might feature
    a 210cc engine. This project has been codenamed K210 and we guess
    the ‘210’ in that name could be the engine displacement. While there is
    hardly any information on this new Japanese motorcycle, we believe that
    it is in early stage of the development. These rumours were never negated
    by the manufacturer and at the same time, they were never acknowledged.
    There could be a slight chance of this K210 project being the same one
    but it is too early to comment.

    the best thing about traveling on a small cc bike... I can leave it more often, stop worrying and have freedom to relax.

    expensive big bike really does attract a lot of attention and it is going to be stolen if you leave it unattended.

    smal cc bikes = LOADS of fun + spare money to have MORE fun

    Pasir Putih beach was a sea of people, with barely a pebble visible
    among the bodies, i thought it was time to reveal a few hidden beach
    or pretty little cove that remain uncrowded even on a sunny weekend.

    There’s never any doubt about escaping crowds at Tampora beach .
    This beach remains hidden from view by hill and forest (Wana Wisata).
    Like all the quiet beaches, it takes a little effort to get there and
    there’s nothing there (no hotel), except white pebbled sand, spectacular
    views of Tampora Beach, sheltering cliffs, rock pools and clear water.

    There is an urban legend around Ranu Grati. Locals say that Ranu Grati is
    inhabited by a (half human-snake) spirit call Baru Klinthing, and there
    is an Indonesian navy amphibious tank that was drowned by Baru Klinthing.

    Bike hire is available everywhere in Bali and cost around $10 per day for the average 125cc scooter. If you need a dirt bike, the hotel staff will help you to find Kawasaki KLX150 cost around $15 per day and KLX250 for $45 per day.

    If you need more horsepower, you can ride Husqvarna, but i don't know how much it cost?

    Thanks gungpasuruan

    125 or 250 will do. I think I'll rent an offroad to explore Bali by myself. Not sure if I want a guided tour unless you say it's really worth it. ;)

    Hello all,

    I've got a question that I can't quite find the answer to in the last hour I've spent in this thread, but it is a huge (and so far awesome) thread and I haven't made it all the way through yet.

    Anyway, today I met up with a coworker in Cameroon that I haven't seen in a year (we're both Americans working in Africa). He's 60, and he's lived in Bali with his Balinese wife for the last 8-10 years, has his KITAS, etc, but as I'm finding is very common, everything is in his wife's name.

    One of those things is a Husqvarna TE630 that I'd very much like to fly in and buy off of him. I've read mostly that I can't, on a tourist visa, legally buy a bike, but that it's easy enough to leave in the previous owner's name. While that would be great if I wanted to stay in just Indonesia, I'd like to ride up into Malaysia, Thailand etc.

    Do I have any hope of registering it in my name somehow, without having a ITAS/KITAS? And if not, does anyone know if I'll run into problems trying to leave the country on "someone else's" bike? I don't plan to ship it, just ferry crossings, so I will be with the bike.

    Terima kasih,
    Brenden

    Foreigner are not allowed to registering any motorized vehicle in Indonesia with his name, so it's must registered with Indonesian owner (wife or friend or previous owner) and you should prepare for Police hassles as they ask for bribe.

    but...What is an adventure without problem ?
    It wouldn't be an adventure if something out of the ordinary didn't happen.

    You can get a carnet at Bea Cukai office

    Haha yes, I'm expecting a bit of an adventure and that sounds like what I expected. As long as I can get a carnet I guess I will be fine to leave the country on the bike. Another question...know any aluminum welders in Bali? I'd like to make the rear part of the subframe stronger, and a welder would be easiest.

    Thanks again! I'm hoping to get started by November.
