Mainly I want to buy some hard panniers for storage and also get a surfboard rack made up (like the ones you see on scooters in bali). I was wondering if anyone knew any places in Surabaya that sell panniers as I have seen lots of motorbike repair places but none with boxes or panniers.
Also can anyone recommend any nice weekend trips to do from Surabaya with some nice roads/scenery?
for better scenery and experience when you go to bali, i recommend you to cross the southbound lanes of Java. you'll see beach and mountain scenery along that way. and when you're almost get to banyuwangi, try to visiting alas purwo national park. you'll find nice surf spot there.
