2008 October: Track Day at Sentul

Sentul Circuit, October 16, 2008.

More than 1,5 month not riding my sport bike, it was so tempting when some friends called me asking if I would like to practice on Thursday morning. Just skip half day from the office and back to work again after lunch. Hm… that was good idea since I only have a meeting late afternoon on Thursday. So, finally I said “Yes, I will come.”

Actually it is better to practice during the working day (if we can) since the track is relatively empty compare to practice during the weekend. Today we have Didi, Ari, Bona, Ochi ,Samuel and I.

Part 3: Gathering in Mega Mendung

Saturday-Sunday, October 11-12, 2008 Mega Mendung

Morning ride to Puncak has been done. Charity activities also have been completed. The rest, was just a relaxing time and get together, enjoying very fresh mountain air at Mega Mendung.

Mega Mendung is quite famous recreational area, since it represents a mountain climate but not too far from Jakarta. We were lucky and thank you for the generous of Didi, the Club President who provide his family villa to be used by us.

Before the riders arrived, Putri, my oldest daughter who went and arrived there earlier with the other kids by car under Mom Grace supervison, took some pictures representing the beauty of this place:

Arriving at Mega Mendung from Puncak Pass, we show a full set of meals were being prepared for us. Hm.. it is going to be a big lunch, I guess.

But we better finish our main agenda first, distributing some basic foods (rice, sugar, palm oil, nodles, etc) which is famous as “Sembako” to the deserved poor people at the surrounding area.

Part 1: Jakarta –Puncak-Mega Mendung Ride

This time, the ride is only a short distance. It was designed for a relaxing ride and focus more on the charity and gathering activities.

This is a kind of annual social routine activities of the Ducati community. If last year we rode to Serang almost at the beach level for the annual charity activity, this time we prefer to ride to a mountain area, Mega Mendung.

June 2008: Superbike Race at Indoprix

Saturday, June 14, 2008: Qualifying Time Practice

Although it is more serious than the fun race, for me this race is quite relax and not too stressful. It was because the fast riders (lap time below 1:40) were not allowed to participate in. So I could hope no one will overlap me within the race. Hahaha…

Come in the morning, we enter into the track for 30 minutes qualifying and practice at 10.00 a.m.
