Ok, this time we managed to skip (again) 3 days from the office and make use of the Independence Day long weekend to continue our ride from Bukit Tinggi to Banda Aceh. We have 15 bikes all together, that consist of 5 Ducati Multistrada, 6 Ducati Monster, 2 Ducati ST, 1 Ducati SS, and Samuel the Desmosedici Man, bring his GSX 1000.

Today, we flew by morning flight from Jakarta to Padang and directly went to Bukit Tinggi by car. This is a relaxing day. No rush and later we will only warm up the bike and ride to Harau Valley, not too far from Bukit Tinggi.

On the way back home, we prefer to ride and have an easier but nice road though South Jave Inter City Main Road (See the ebove map in green) up to the begening of toll road, up load the bike to the truck and go home by car via toll road. This will save a lot of energy so we could immediately start our business day the day after (on Monday).

2009 March: Jogjakarta Ride 2009 (Part 2)

This time we basically changed all riding plans for our 2 days in Jogjakarta. No ride to Pacitan (beach area) and No ride to the mountain area as well. Since we were still a bit tired by a long and time consuming ride to Jogjakarta on the first day, we prefered just to have a enjoyable and short ride in and arround Jogjakarta for the next 2 days and had another long ride back home via Bandung.

Friday, 27 March 2009: Ratu Boko
Ratu Boko is an archaeological site known as Kraton Ratu Boko or Ratu Boko’s Palace. Ratu Boko is located on a plateau. This place is not far away from Jogjakarta city. It is located at the opposite side of the famous Lara Jonggrang Prambanan Temple (about 3 km from the main street to Solo).
