Travelling over the land we only could average about 20 mph (already the speed limit for the common trucks!) with our modern Toyota van.
Thanks alicethomas

Most of them only located on small parts of Java. By the way, your bike is recently launched in Indonesia, it's called Yamaha Byson. Great job Melroy and congrats!
Thanks Bumpy ahead.

Photos from ride

Melroy,

If you have some high resolution photos from this ride I'd be interested in them for publication in the Iron Butt Magazine.

Please contact me via email.

Thanks

Great achievement dude. I am from India and know the traffic. Maintaining an average of 66 km/hr means that you had to be traveling around 100 km/hr most of the time and that is not an easy feat on Indian roads.

100 km/hr may seem slow for the folks here in US and many other parts of the world...but I have been riding in both places and know how difficult this is.

You truly deserve an ironbuttplus award. Congrats.

Post if you have any other pics of the trip(if you had the time for it) and maybe details about how often you stopped to rest... for food etc..

Kudos to you! A SS1000 is an accomplishment, and on a 153cc bike, you sir, accomplished a lot!

Thanks fizzer.It was tough as you get lot of trucks driving which makes it risky.The only stops I took were at petrol stations for refuelling.

Are you saying that you didn't even stop to pee during the 24 hours? No stops for food, coffee?
