Satu Hati. One Heart.

Astra Honda Indonesia as being part of my ‘Dream Team’!!

It is amazing when things you have been working on so hard over months and months, come back to you through unexpected and new doors. I am feeling stronger than ever about The Moto Quest and everything feels so right about this new chapter in my life. With all the challenges I had to face in making this trip happen, I have never given up on my motorcycle adventure. Having a big company like Astra Honda standing behind me and offering service and support in any branch around whole Indonesia, confirms once again that you should always hold tightly onto your dreams and trust in yourself and their realisation.

I wasn’t supposed to be back in Bali so soon but had two good reasons to jump on a boat back here; meeting the Honda team and become part their family at last Saturday’s Honda Modif Contest 2014 and for my 30th birthday.

Having the “Satu Hati” (One Heart) pin, symbolising Hondas support, fixed onto my jacket on a big stage at the Modif Contest the evening before my birthday, was truly the best present and worth the troubled ferry ride of 8 hours, were people would puke their guts out due to the stormy weather and rough sea.

It was great too see some rad garage built Honda scooters, C70s, Tigers, CBs and other modified models.

Aan & Lulut Kustom FestA special THANK YOU goes to Aan and Lulut, the creative and busy souls behind Kustom Fest in Jogjakarta (Java/Indonesia), who I met a few months ago in Melaka (Malaysia) at the Old Wheels Show. The boys were inspired and excited about my adventure and guaranteed their help… Never would I have expected this promise to manifest itself like this!!! You guys are amazing!!!!

Terima kasih banyak, Astra Honda Indonesia, for having me as part of your beautiful family.
I am looking forward to what the future holds for us.

Salam Satu Hati
