Life is an Offering

Always when I come across a little offering tray here in Bali, it feels to me like the whole cosmos is in these little baskets, called ‘canang sari ‘. The more special it feels, to find them in front of my door and around the house, when coming home this afternoon. The ritual of Offering… Read More


Assalamualaikum

After spending three days with only myself and pretty much in absolute silence, I found myself on a scooter in Praya with four people. Two adults and two kids; absolutely no biggie here in Indonesia! I met Hidayat from “Trawangan Riders Community Lombok” and his family through a motorcycle friend from Java and I promised I would pop… Read More

First Test Ride + Video

“Where are we going?” “North,” was my answer when the Javanese filming team asked me for the route for the day, while I was saddling up my bike for its first ride. “Where exactly? What’s the course?” I didn’t know. The direction of The Moto Quest isn’t mapped out; it’ll lead where my heart and… Read More



DEUS Slidetober Fest 2013

It was already Thursday morning, when I found out about a Motocross event on the weekend, that Deus was putting together somewhere on the West coast of Bali. Finally something, I thought, that wasn’t “shanti”!! I needed an escape from that spiritual Disneyland of Ubud and sense some moto life. Dirt, noise, grease and a… Read More
