I woke up in Solo feeling perfectly fine, so I decided a trip to a doctor was not necessary…so, off to Gunung Bromo!

Gunung Bromo (the name Bromo is derived from Brahma, the Hindu creator god) is an active volcano in Eastern Java that is surrounded by a massive expanse of sand (called the “Sea of Sand”), which functions as a wonderful motorcycle playground.

We hiked up Bromo and around the crater, then spent a ton of time riding around in the sand…I’ll let the pictures do the talking…

  1. pat, you’ve been riding for a long time now. i’ve lost track of where it is that you are. what country are you in now? looks like asia, mongolia ? kazakstan or something? amazing ride.

    • I’m in Indonesia now, which has had some great experiences (better than expected riding as well). Should be here another two weeks, then I’ll be off to Australia
