2009 March: Jogjakarta Ride 2009 (Part 3)

28 March 2009: Borobudur Temple
Most of us have been there and not really interested in exploring the Famoust and the Bigest Acheological Budha Temple, Borobudur. But, we just would like to enjoy the ride to go there and get some famous Borobudur flavour in the ride…

Thus, still be able to enjoying a relaxing morning and breakfast at the hotel, we then get ready for and easy and short ride to Borobudur. I still managed to get this sunrise pic from my hotel room..

“Gave” a Ducati fellow (Monster 620) from Salatiga came and joined the group and guided us to ride through a smaller but emty and twisty road so we could cut off most of heavy and crowded main road to Borobudur. Uh.. it was a nice road and I even can not have any picture of us at such road, since too bussy enjoying the twisty road by myself. Hahaha.. 😀

In short, finally we arrived at Borobudur Temple and tried to enter into the lounge (without booking). Next time we have to remember to book in advance, if we would like to go here again. We were luckly the officer let us to entered into the VIP Lounge area this time. Hm.. from the eyes of the front officers, I could easily guess that the “Ducati Nice Looking Bikes” is the one that helps us.. :mrgreen:


Milan said, it was a rare opportunity and he make sure that he got his bike and he himself, off course, to have this picture.

While our celebrity, Gunawan though it was quite safe and quite (far for the public area, which was so crowded at that time)

But, he instantly realized that it was a miss perception. And this is the result.. Hahahaha.. 😀

We thanked you to Mr Bagus who invited us to join his Harley’s group (who came with cars at that time) for a lunch together. This is Pak Bagus and his wife + some other friends picture.

Enjoying a short break, some fresh juices with Borobudur view

We have just realized that Jewel had a Borobudur’s Cap.. Hahaha.. 😀

It was rain when we went off Borobudur back to Jogjakarta. So we decided to stop a small restaurant just beside the street still closed to Borobudur. Some of us had another lunch.. :mrgreen:

I’m not sure the point of cleaning up the bike in rainy time and the road was still wet. But, well.. I guess it was part of their positive hobby.. So, I let it be.. and hope they will also kind enough cleaning up my bike as well.. Hahaha.. 🙂

See.. we even have to stop again in the midle of the road due to a heavy rain while some of us were too confidence not to bring their rain suit in this short ride…

Finally we arrived at the hotel late afternoon and clean up ourselves. Uh.. I really enjoy another hard hot water shower. Hm..

To be continued in Part 4…

    Hello there Mr. Nugroho,
    I’ve been following your blog for a while now and I find it very interesting, entertaining and educating. I am too a Ducati owner (M696 – Pearl White), but a newbie at that – this is my first Ducati.
    Your Jogjakarta Ride seemed like an awesome and fun trip… Hope everybody made it back safely (and mechanically). I can’t wait to read your next post (Part 4).
    I am glad to hear that there are a lot of Ducatista out there, hopefully I’ll be able to meet some of you when I go back to Jakarta again.
    Please keep posting your thoughts and experiences, I certainly enjoy them.

    Ride safe and have fun!
