I'm always reaching out to Asian rental companies to see who will allow one-way and even international rentals. There's not many, but there are a few. I'm doing Vietnam / Cambodia / Laos this October on a rented Pegasus 250 enduro. I've shipped my own bike a couple of times, but for an "annual leave" trip, the cost is really prohibitive. Anyway I've found a company in Bali that is willing to rent me a KLX250 one way to Kupang (West Timor / Indonesia), maybe even East Timor. For now I'm assuming I will have to get is shipped back to Bali, and I've got that covered if I need it. This is an early enquiry for travel about a year from now: anybody interested in picking up the return rental from Dili to Bali? If you've ever tried to arrange this, you will know it is super hard to source a bike. This would save me the cost of return shipping. There's plenty of things that could wrong with this proposal, I just want to see if anybody is interested to begin with. Logistics * The bike would have Indonesian registration. I believe this would make the border crossing from East Timor to West Timor straightforward, and no carnet would be needed (there's $400 saved straight away). I prefer to ride the other direction. it is possible to get into East Timor without a carnet, but it's not straightforward. * We would have to figure out some arrangement for payment to the rental company and liability. I can imagine they would not be keen to let you take delivery of the bike without meeting you. Maybe you would have to pay a pretty fat deposit - I don't know. * A lot of people end up "buying" their own bike in Indonesia for this trip. What they don't realise is that they are not the legal owners and they are not insured. It is not legal for foreigners to own a motor vehicle in Indonesia (not even expats who have a work visa). So those happy, beaming bloggers who post pictures of "their scooter" .. well, actually it's not! * Engine compression of the KLX is technically too high to run on 88 RON "Pertamina", which is all you can get outside of cities in Indonesia. It should be run on 91 RON "Pertamax", but you absolutely cannot get that in the villages and rural areas. Consequently you would need to ride conservatively to avoid getting serious engine damage. I don't know who pays for that if it happens - one of many details to discuss.
