#Repost from @adventuriderz with @regram.app ... Surprise! Dalam kondisi motor yang masih standard ting-ting ternyata KLX230 sanggup melibas berbagai macam handicap di Gisting 360 Adventure Trail 2019. Menurut saya motor ini punya power dan torsi yang melimpah. Kapan pun dibutuhkan power dan torsi itu selalu tersedia. Uniknya power dan torsi itu disalurkan dengan smooth, tapi ngisi terus. Mau dipake santai enak, mau diajak kenceng pun mau. Padahal ini masih standard lho. Knalpot aja belum diganti. Ban juga masih standard ban dual purpose, bukan ban offroad. Eh ya, review lengkapnya bakal saya ulas di blog ya! . .

Day 72 – 23/08/2019 – A very warm day in sunny Albania as I leave Tirana early in the morning. Due to the summer holidays, it seemed like the whole country was highly keen to head to the beaches. The single-lane road from Tirana to the beachside area of Shengjin was absolutely chockers with traffic that was at a near-standstill. Good thing that I’m a foreigner on a foreign motorcycle, so rules don’t apply to me, right? Nevertheless, the cops seemed okay with me using the emergency lane and footpaths while traffic wasn’t moving.
As mentioned yesterday, thousands of concrete bunkers are spread across the whole country. Since the fall of Communism in Albania, many of them had faced demolition as people sought ways to make some money from scrap metal to keep their head above the waters in an economically troubled nation. Though many of them in urban areas had been destroyed, there are still many examples that exist. In Shengjin, larger bunkers had been built into cliff faces. The interior of these particular bunkers feature trenches and recessed walls to enable defence in case of an attack, as well as enough room to roll in an artillery and store ammunition supplies.
One of the best-known example of a functional bunker in the small town of Bajze is the tattoo parlour created by Keq Marku. Born in Albania in an era that he describes as being not too different from present-day North Korea, he spent some time emigrating and living in other parts of the world for decades, being deported many times from various countries before eventually returning to his home country and settling down as a family man. His creations both as a tattoo artist and a canvas painter reflect both the hardships and personal triumphs throughout his life. A humble human who wants nothing else but to provide for his family at home while exercising his creativity in this original bunker 100 metres away, it was a great privilege for me to hear about his life story, and to learn and understand the challenges faced by the Albanians. Much respect.
Nothing like a ride in the Aussie bush on a perfect day... Till you find a patch of snow (yes snow- crazy weather here)... and cop a snowball in the face in the ensuing fight...
Ah, the joys of the ride.
Dreaming of the beautiful nothingness in the Bartang Valley. Wish I could ride this place again right now to refresh the soul.
July 2020 we’ll be there with our @rideunlimited.co.uk tour, seems like forever away though 🙈

Anyone here keen to join me on my adventure? 🔥
I’ll be leaving Poland on my motorbike in exactly one month heading towards my final destination - Cape Town. I’ll be taking East coast of Africa and going south with no particular plan.
I have no time frames and I usually go with the flow - so that trip will be also done this way; no rush, no pressure. •
I’ll be traveling by myself so if anyone out there is doing similar route, would be great to meet along the way! 🙌
