Besides being able to add friends during the trip, we were also amazed by the cool and fresh natural beauty of Indonesia. Anyway, Indonesia is really beautiful,” said Anang Fauzi, Head of Gomax Adventure.
Although the overall touring trip went smoothly, there were still obstacles encountered. Like the problem with Anang’s motorcycle. Where his motorbike hit a hole that made his motorbike problematic.
“The second day my motorbike had trouble, while traveling it hit a hole so the motorbike died on the way from Madiun to Nganjuk, East Java. The incident happened around 22:30 to 02:00 before I was able to walk to Surabaya. Once in Surabaya to Lombok, on the boat the motor can’t be started again. Finally entered the Yamaha workshop in Lombok,” recalled Anang to Autoride.
