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).

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….

2006-Dec: Ride to Bandung

Before the end of 2006, together with other 14 Ducs (5 Multistrada, 5 Monster, 2 SBK 999, 1 SS 900, 1 ST2) I join a ride on an alternative route from Jakarta to Bandung (West Java) on Dec 2-3, 2006. This time we rode via Cibubur, Jonggol, Cileungsi, Cikalongkulon, Cirata Dam, Cikalongwelan, Darangdan, Wanayasa, Ciater and Lembang and entering into Bandung city from the north down from Mount Tangkuban Perahu. Although a bit longer route, it was always nice to ride in empty small village roads, ride between the tea plantation and ride in the heavy fog around the mountain area. Get ready with the rain coat, since riding in the rain is one of the consequences to ride in December in Indonesia. See this: Breafing before start.
