    View attachment 1740903 Sumbawa, Indonesia is a magical island. It’s riding paradise with very little traffic, very many beautiful vistas and some stunning beaches. Just got back from 11 days riding. Here are some more snaps.

    terrific!
    i rode the island of flores in early 2015 for 2 weeks. i rented a standard honda scooter which was the only kind of motorcycle available for rent. a dirt bike/ enduro would have been preferable but it showed again, only 2 wheels matter in the end...
    pavement, gravel and dirt track, it's all there and offers a lot of fun!!! in case you go to flores check out 4 pohon bungalow resort (google it). the owner can get you on the right tracks! View attachment 1724038

    Hi Steve, good to see you and the little Kwaka still tripping around.

    Kimie and I were about to book a ticket to Lombok around an hour ago, with the plan of catching up with you and Serah, and riding over to Sumbawa again - had a last second change of mind and instead we are off to South Korea. Don't worry, we will make it over there in the not too distant future. :-)

    Look forward to seeing more of what you have been up to recently.
