Met with Lucas of Di’ Gigant Tours Borneo in Samarinda. He has given me some amazing options in the year or so we’ve been discussing it. For example, I was dead keen to hike in the forest and see wild pygmy elephants, but it was the wrong season.
Still hoping to do a homestay.
Very happy for the assistance Lucas gave us navigating out of the city. 34 degrees, helmet, jacket, gloves, dead-stopped traffic = not fun.
I have been to Samarinda before and found is really easy to ride through. In general I’m finding traffic everywhere a lot worse than last time, and travel times slower.
The bike had it’s first failure here too – I think the wheel speed sensor which apparently is connected to numerous systems.
