In the end of my journey to Bukit Pelangi (Rainbow Hill), I decided to heading to Air Mancur U-turn on jalan Ahmad Yani in the way back to home. Before crossing the street, I parked my bike on SPBU Total parking area. There I saw four Kawasaki motorcycles. If you think the bikes are Ninja or ER series then you’re wrong. Those bikes aren’t full fairing bike nor street bike which we often see. Those motorcycles are Kawasaki adventure or supermoto series, the KLX 150S and D-Tracker 150.
These bikes belong to four cool guys which call them selves the Buitenzorg Motarders. They live around Bogor city and usually hang out to see each other on the weekend. When I met them, they were really humble to introduce them selves and starting conversation. According to them, this kind of motorcycle is comfort for daily usage. They said these bikes are having no difficulty to move quickly across the speed trap, wet and muddy ground, even off-road track with heavy terrain. You can ride it in all street conditions. The fuel consumption is quite thrift for 150 cc engine. These bikes are quite light if we compare it to superbike. Of course, no doubt about it 🙂 .
Well buddy, do you live near Bogor city and have an adventure bike or supermoto like this? Then you can join them. They also accept riders who ride custom bike in adventure bike concept. For example, a Honda CS-1 which have been modified into an adventure bike belong to a member of this community.
