Random at best. Wish you a lot of lucks.
Ask the people at the town you aim to leave from and ask at the port there and even then make sure you check regularly before the boat leaves or you'll miss it and wait for another days to come.
Edit: Asked a friend from Maumere last day. He said that there is a ferry every Monday at 7 from Ende port to Kupang. There is also two ASDP ferries from Larantuka to Kupang on Monday and Friday at 2 PM. You and your beasts can "ride" them back to Ende from Kupang. If there is bad weather, they may not come, which means that you'll wait for another week. Or if they reach Kupang and then the weather going bad, they'll wait another day to sail back.
When do you think, those ferries go in our direction? Same day or differrent days?

Sorry, 7am.
Like I said before, it is random at best. Every ferry on that part of archipelago run from one port to another, circling the islands. I even heard one goes as far as Surabaya (Java island) and Sulawesi island. If the weather gone bad, they stop at one port and wait, and that can takes more than 7 hours.

Best of luck. When you somehow managed to get one on your way to Sumbawa Island's harbor, contact me, either by emal or phone message. I'll catch some fresh food and it takes time to prepare.

Hi Tigersyndicate!

We just arrived in Kupang (West-Timor) and hopefully we´ll take the "hell" ferry tomorrow to Larantuka (Flores).

Cheers

Sorry, if I didn´t mention it: yes: we choosen our route: blue!
Biggest argument: we can visit YOU, Mr. Blek!

But after visiting you? Who knows? One thing we learned on our a.t.w.-trip: it never works out as you planned:-)

Looking forward to meet you, Blek!

Greetings from Kupang!

Panny

Glad you two are doing well before the hell...

You can always change your route after you reach Sumbawa island. There is a ship named Tilong Kabila twice every month from Asakota harbor to Ujung Pandang (Makassar), Sulawesi island, and it is not as "hell" as the ships there at East Nusa Tenggara.

bike to Borneo

Hi, just stumbled on this thread, checked out LonelyPlanet's thorntree as well, and everywhere it seems to indicate that to take my bike to Borneo (I'm presently driving down the east coast of the peninsula) just won't work or will be a massive migraine. I have a 125CC Honda Dream, so no massive monster. Since this was posted two years ago, is this still the case? If I take the blue route (south through Indonesia, as I am making my way very slowly to Bali), I should leave out of Georgetown? I was hoping to drive all the way down the east coast and hop over from Singapore.

Hi kenax. :)
There is a shipping company on Georgetown, and if it is Honda Dream underbone supercub, I think the shipment will be easy. Sure they have experience shipping small bikes to East Malaysia (Borneo) or straight to Medan, Indonesia.
