I want to buy/hire a motorbike in Indonesia. I arrive in Jakarta and want to travel through Java, Bali and Lombok for 2 months. Any advices?
I would like to have some advice about buying a bike in Java travel through Java, Lombok and Bali and returning it in Java or sell it in Lombok (last is preferred). Is there anyone who has done the same? I already heard that you need to have the approvel of the original owner to drive on other islands and that you need to have the insurance papers. Has any of you a good contact person or the name of a shop to buy a second hand bike in Java (around jakarta or in jakarta). If this is in your opinion to much of hassle for just two months, is there any one who rented a bike in Jakarta and made a nice trip trough java and returned the bike in Jakarta. Could you give some information about your trip? Thanks a lot!
