*this article based on what I feel

I used my friends' bike by the way... when he came with Kawasaki Athlete, "aha, this is the right time to test that bike" said to myself. I immediately asked for a test.

I just want to say "Futuristic" 

Athlete headlamp

Riding position
It's quite good I think. The handlebar designed bit more high, you can compare with other same type like, Suzuki Satria Fu. This one (Athlete) is better for me. For footsteps the position is also good. As a whole the riding position as usual as a road bike, comfortable.

Here is the exciting part. This bike is light.. that's what I felt as started twist the grip. I can easily sped away. This is remembered me for Yamaha Vega ZR, that was light too. But I think Athlete is more light. Eventually I can't tested it further because we take placed in a college. Oh yeah, don't ever compare the acceleration with Suzuki Satria Fu as their specification is so different. Satria is absolutely lead for acceleration.


I felt the handling also light as well as the bike weight. Moreover I felt this is too light because I usually ride a heavy bike (weight) like, minerva r150vx or Yamaha Scorpio. But while I can adapt the handling I thought this bike is easy to control.


Kawasaki athlete provide a semi-sport bike with quite good acceleration without leaving a comfort side. Nice..

Livery design for my bike

I prefer to follow racing livery like motoGP or WSBK rather than create my own design. Racing livery is always attractive and has its own atmosphere.

For my bike which is has a unique yellow color I think Yamaha black and yellow special 50th anniversary livery is the best design to adapt.

Several days ago I was accidentally search green day song in Youtube because I'm bored with my present playlist. Then I found new song titled, Cigarettes and valentines. I clicked and watched it. Do you know? When I heard the song suddenly I remember about Green days previous album American Idiot. Music arrangement, lyrics theme looks similar with American idiot for me.

After that a question came to my mind. Is it really a brand new song? If it yes I really happy because I like American Idiot more than their latest album 21st Century Breakdown.

Then I started a little investigation about the story behind that song. From wikipedia I knew that Cigarettes and valentines was already exist in 2003, a year before American Idiot released, from the album with same title. Eventually the master recording were stolen from the studio by an unknown individual. Instead of re-recording the stolen tracks, they decided to abandon the entire project and start over and resulted American Idiot.

That's why Cigarettes and valentines really close to American idiot in terms of musics material.

Accident in Indonesia

Photo by Antara
According to the Jakarta Metropolitan Police, at least 1000 accident reported in Jakarta during 2010. This fact is totally awful where some of that case caused death. Now, the traffic turned to the dangerous place in Indonesia. As soon as possible this problem must be solved to create a safety for motorist. Accident in Indonesia not only caused by careless driving but also caused by other factors like bad infrastructure and bad vehicle condition.

Some drivers are careless about their vehicle and some other just send it to bad service station for cost reason whereas a regular check for vehicle is important. The most prominent part to check regularly is tires and brake. Those parts are absolutely important for our safety. When their condition is going bad it will threat us. Bad tires will lose your control and make you easily slipped in the road as well as bad brake.

Another aspect that supports the occurrence of accident is bad infrastructure. While small country like Singapore has good traffic facilities, Indonesia which is a big country has bad facilities. Broken traffic light, not clear road sign, and poor road just describe the condition of Indonesia’s traffic. This circumstance automatically threat motorist. They confused by terrible management which can lead an accident.

Poor road condition
The last but not least is about the driver awareness. The awareness especially in Indonesia is less both of the driver, rider, and public transport driver. There are still many motorists who disobey the law for unacceptable reason. Ran a red light, entering bus way road, against traffic flow, and other careless attitude like eat, grooming, and take a cell phone while driving will bring a nightmare; both for the pedestrians and the drivers.

It's dangerous!
To suppress the number of accident in Indonesia we must not only concern to the motorist but also the facilities as well as the officer. Road facilities improvement can be initial step for government to solve this problem. Then it can be followed by safety riding campaign to aware the public.

The Roman Emperor, Max Biaggi

Max Biaggi is a motorcycle racer. He is a former motoGP rider and now race in World Superbike. Many racing fans admire him for his ambition for champion. However some racing fans as well as his colleagues also complained for his attitude. Sometimes he takes a very hard effort and harms his colleagues but in reality every racing fans will miss him if he didn’t take part in a race. Max Biaggi has all the qualities of an incredible sportsman as well as attractive entertainer: His bravery and ambition, remarkable talent, and strong character.

Reviewing previous race. :D

First of all, Biaggi is well known for his ambition. He will do anything to take the podium even have to debate with his team and mechanics to get the best setting. He is also a big risk taker. In 2001 he had a conflict with Yamaha for bike matter. For the consequences he dropped out then joined to Honda because he thinks his previous team didn’t give their best for him. The best rival who ever felt how bitter compete with Roman Emperor –Biaggi’s nickname- is Valentino Rossi.

Biaggi and Rossi
Then, Biaggi is a clever racer who has its own way to finish a race. He is well known for his bravery both in racing style and in taking the racing line. Moreover some racing enthusiast says his racing style is dangerous. Nevertheless I think he is just elegant racer with his own way and very entertaining. His biggest achievement was winning World Superbike Championship in 2010.

Finally, Biaggi is not only a great racer he is also an attractive entertainer. Why? For all the character that I’ve mention before it makes him an entertaining racer. He serves great rivalries, a news maker, and creates a conflict just make a racing competition more enjoyable. The greatest rivalries he ever had are with The Doctor, Valentino Rossi. War of words, elbowing in a race, and hard fight just describe their rivalries.

Max Biaggi is more than a great sportsman. He makes a competition more enjoyable to watch. That’s why a lot of racing fans love him. Even though his performance this year little bit decrease, there is always a place for an entertaining racer as him.

Friends? :D

How to Maintain Your Motorcycle Chain

My bike chains :D

Chains is one of the important parts in the motorcycles. Their task is to transferring power from the engine to the rear wheel. So, they need a proper maintenance to prevent a worse thing that might come to you or other motorist. Chains should be inspected for every 2000 km or twice a month.

We just need to do two simple things in this maintain. First is lubricate then the last is adjusting the tension.

For lubricating we can use SAE 80-90 oil or chain lube product. It's not recommended to use a used oil as a lubricant. It just make it chain worse and more dirty. Before lubricating we need to clean the chain. Then lubricate the chain with rotating the wheel.

After that we inspect the chains if it need an adjustment by pull it up and down. Set the tension by moving the rear axle. Recommended tension is about 2cm - 3cm. Don't forget to see rear axle position by index marks shown in the swing arm. Match it left and right.

Finish. :D

First Impression Tourist Trophy [PS2]

Another video game conjured me up. Now it’s for a motorcycle racing game titled Tourist Trophy. The first time I saw this game, it’s about the slogan –The real riding simulator-. Sounds familiar right? Yeah it was similar as Gran Turismo slogan –the real driving simulator- just difference in word ‘riding and driving’. It makes me assured about this game. I expect this game same as the famous Gran Turismo series. And the important is this is a motorcycle racing game, haha :D you know what? I prefer riding than driving. Ok, now I’ll bring you to the review or first impression when I play this game.

Tourist Trophy is a motorcycle racing game designed by Polyphony Digital, the same team that makes the famous Gran Turismo series (no wonder the slogans is very similar hehe). This game released on 2006 (Yes, I’m late to know this game :D).
