2008 March: SENTUL TRACK DAY

SENTUL TRACK DAY
2008-03-07 and 2008-03-09

Friday (March 07, 2008) is a public holiday. Being a long weekend, some Ducati Riders who were still in town, warmed up their bikes and did some practice rounds in Sentul International Circuit, around 45 Km from Jakarta. Besides the real racer from R15 Team that day, at least I could see 8 Ducati bikes including 3 units of new Ducati Superbike1098 (Setiawan on 1098s, Ochi on 1098 and myself on 1098s). The other 5 Other Ducatista were Eko on Ducati Superbike 996, Steven on Ducati Superbike 748, Milan on Monster 400, Saiful on Monster 400, Satar on Multistrada 1000DS. Other brands of bikes were also present that day. A group of Cagiva and Aprilia bikes as well as some smaller capacity bike like the 150 cc CBR were also present and gathered here to perform endurance and safety testing in one of Asia challenging motor racing track.

I did not set any kind of target for today ride, except to ride and enjoy my 1098s more on motor racing track especially on the turns or corners.

This is the report. Continue reading ‘2008 March: SENTUL TRACK DAY’

2008 February – Jakarta – Padalarang – Wanayasa – Lembang – Bandung

9-10 Feb 2008 Bandung Ride

Riding to Bandung, the Capital City of Jest Java Province is the easiest option for Jakarta riders. Not too far, good and twisty road provide enough justification to go.

This time, I ride to Bandung in a small group, with 2 other Ducati riders, with Yudha (Monster 620) and Danang (Multistrada 1000DS) to catch up and join with a bigger Ducati Group on its way home to Jakarta from Purwokerto (Central Java). The big group of 11 bikes was planned o arrive in Bandung late afternoon this Saturday, February 9, 2008 from Purwekrto after maximizing the long weekend in Indonesia from February 7, 2008.

Still using my favourite bike, red Multistrada 1000DS, 3 of us met at CITOS at 06:00 a.m. I actually prefer to go a bit earlier to avoid traffic jam or heavy traffic in Bogor up to Mega Mendung area. However, this time we only ride in a small group, start a about 6 in the morning was still ok.

After all arrived and met, we were get ready and start. We used full set of rain gear when we start from each own house to CITOS in a light rain but looking at a brighter sky, we decided to only used the rain suite pant to anticipate a quick move for a sudden rain on the way to Puncak Pass. Just before start Iboy came with his Multistrada, but he could not join us this time.

We chose ordinary road via middle Depok, Bogor, Ciawi and ride up to Puncak (the Peak). Careful ride with wet and a bit slippery road up to Bogor, we finally found a nicer weather and dry asphalt in Ciawi. Hm that was good and right on time since we will start climbing to the hill on a twisty road. This twisty road to Puncak is always nice to ride on….
