Mothers: Lock Your Daughters in Their Rooms!

Bikers on Their Harleys – An Increasingly Common Sight on Bali's Roadways.


(1/3/2005)

Bikers on Their Harleys Whichever name you choose to use - Monster Bikes, Harleys, Choppers or Hoggs - motorbikes with engines more powerful than the average family car, are becoming a common sight on Bali's streets. Accordingly, there are a number of companies on the Island selling big-bike tours; incentive and conference groups who, in search of something different, arrange transfers to local restaurants on the back of large motor bikes; a popular local restaurant called "Handlebars" that doubles as a big bike repair shop; and Bali even has its own Official Harley Davidson dealership.

When your in Bali you're truly in Hogg Heaven.

In fact, the highways of Bali have become so attractive to big-bike enthusiasts that members of the Jakarta-based Harley Owners Group now hold regular tours and events in Bali. For example, there was recently a large October-Fest held on Kuta beach attended by an entire platoon of big bikes. While recently, bikers from Kalimantan (Borneo) brought their bikes all the way from their jungle homes to roam the by-ways of Bali.

Bikes on Boats

Inexplicably drawn to anything with a large engine, members of the Harley Owners Group roared up to the pier of Bali Hai Cruises in Benoa harbor to join a Sunset Dinner Cruise on Thursday, December 30, 2004, on board the 300 passenger Bali Hai II.

Those expecting that what followed will be tale of drunken debauchery and wild partying may be disappointed. Although loath to admit it, Indonesia's biking community is predominately populated by successful businessmen with growing waistlines and graying temples. That man in the leather jacket ahead of your your bus is typically someone's Husband or Father, riding his bike to enjoy the thrills of the open road and recapture the lost thrills of a now distant youth.

Thus, the bikers joining the Thursday night Bali Hai Cruise roared up to the pier only to then politely park their bikes, sipped on welcome drinks while chatting with fellow passengers, and then participated in a civilized dinner cruise of Bali's harbor. Reports from other passengers indicate that the bikers' table manners were impeccable.

Easy Rider

So friendly were the visiting bikers, in fact, that one young lady passenger admiring the bikes after the cruise took up an offer for a joy ride, her arms wrapped securely around a local version of an aging Peter Fonda.

Now, several days later, the girl's parents remain hopeful that the biker might one day safely return their daughter to her anxious parents.
