Riding down the west coast was my dream.
some would advice me not to take that route…
yet they never been there.
tak pernah sampai dan buat tapi nak nasihat orang…
west coast has the best road and the best view to ride in sumatera.
I keep telling myself that i will be back here someday for another ride.
the hilly road,nice curves,nice ppl,friendly ppl.
if they say the road was bad…
its not the whole country.
some parts yes..
bad roads,potholes,u name it.
not 100 %
just some parts.
might drain you.
but the view pays.
and you might get to see some local or traditional show.
especially end of year..
wedding and such lah
Heading south to the tip of Sumatera you will pass Bandar Lampung.
a transit town for local heading to Jawa Island.
To get to Jawa you need to take ferry from Bakauhani.
huge port that runs round the clock…
on board the ferry they hv lots of stuff lah.
selling tape and also Dangdut show
From “Merak” jetty on Jawa side its only 100 km to get to Jakarta…
but believe me the trafic or “macet” as they call it will take you about 4 hours…
i need a break in Jakarta.
Its flood season and the rain greets me everyday around the clock.
