Samarinda 34 degrees plus traffic

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.
