The Shining, Waduk Sermo Striders Meet

In [StRiders]

Still remember “special agenda” hint in this post? Yes, my photographer instinct whispered, that night, 16 April 2014, there will be an interesting phenomenon that won’t show its powerful charm if it’s observed from Yogyakarta. It needs an area where that kind of phenomenon could disperse his fascinating charm perfectly.

Here’s Yogyakarta 2nd Striders Meet, on Waduk Sermo, Kulonprogro.

Masih ingat selentingan saya akan “agenda khusus” dalam post ini? Ya, insting fotografer saya membisikkan bahwa di malam 16 April 2014, akan terjadi fenomena menarik yang saya rasa pesonanya kurang kuat jika ditangkap di Yogyakarta. Butuh sebuah area dimana fenomena itu dapat terlihat pancarannya secara sempurna.

Here’s Yogyakarta 2nd Striders Meet, berlokasi di Waduk Sermo, Kulonprogo.

After chatting with Mas Aziz at Warung DOHC Garage, my curiosity drasws to one Strider that….quite rare to find: a Satria F150 otaku, that considered as a…Ricer.

Fortunately, there are some Raider…rider who loves their bike and also loves to ride, find its full potential, and of course, making stories and pictures of beautiful memories with their ​​beloved partner. Hey Saskia, there’s others lucky Raider that had same maniac owner as Panji!

Setelah berbincang-bincang bersama Mas Azis di Warung DOHC Garage, saya penasaran akan salah satu Striders yang bagi saya….cukup jarang ditemui : Fans berat Satria F150, motor yang bagi kalangan umum dianggap…Ricer.

Untunglah, masih ada sebagian rider motor ini yang mencintai motornya dengan cara riding untuk mencari & merasakan potensi motornya, dan membuat cerita & foto akan memori-memori indah bersama partner kesayangannya. Hey Saskia, ada Raider lain yang beruntung punya pemilik yang sama maniaknya seperti Panji!

Yap, that lucky Raider was Bahtiar’s Hideko, talent of this wallpaper. And what makes me proud is: Bahtiar print that picture into a pretty huge poster, gracing his room. When your photo is getting appreciated by someone and display it as a trophy for their own private room, hmmm, what a honour!

Yap, Raider beruntung itu adalah Hideko milik Bahtiar, model dalam wallpaper ini. Dan yang membuat saya bangga, Bahtiar mencetak wallpapernya menjadi poster, menghiasi kamarnya. Ketika foto buatan anda di apresiasi orang, dan menjadikannya tropi dalam ruang pribadi-nya, hmmm, membanggakan!

Alright, back to my special agenda. Apparently true; On that night, the moonlight were at its peak, transforming pitch-black Waduk sermo, into a nature theater of moonlight ; It’s time to create newest rider profile!

Alright, kembali ke soal agenda khusus saya. Rupanya benar, di malam itu cahaya bulan sedang kuat sekali pancarannya, membuat Waduk Sermo yang biasanya gelap gulita, berubah menjadi sebuah teater alam akan pantulan cahaya bulan; Saatnya memulai proses membuat foto profil rider terbaru!

Dramatic trails of clouds, soft and sublime moonlight, such a match to be a background that oozes special “hang-out” ambience. Or at least, turning Bahtiar and Hideko snotty faces brighter after a hectic day of working…

Awan yang dramatis, cahaya lembut nan elok dari bulan, sangat cocok untuk menjadi latar belakang yang membangun suasana “nongkrong” yang spesial. Atau setidaknya, membuat wajah Bahtiar & Hideko semakin cerah setelah seharian bekerja…

Here’s Bahtiar & Hideko partner in crime : Adhani and his black zenki CBR 150R that…I didn’t knew its name until now. Let’s just called it…”Ennegrecido” (its meaning? Google translate is our friend). Lots of bitter and sweet memory that Adhani feels at Waduk Sermo. Maybe he can spill it out on SNR somedays.

Inilah partner in crime Bahtiar & Hideko , Adhani dan CBR 150R hitam yang…sampai sekarang saya belum tahu namanya. Let’s just called it…”Ennegrecido” (artinya? Google translate is our friend). Banyak kisah manis & pahit yang sudah dirasakan Adhani di Waduk Sermo. Mungkin lain kali dia akan menceritakannya di SNR.

Recently, I hang-out (and spitting each other) together with this massive creature. Here’s Big D & Sasori folks! I summon him to play together because first, his home was nearby to Wates, and second plus the most important reason : To accompany my ride home because Sasori HID-powered eyes. (you know, my prehistoric bike light are same as Miley Cyrus music, easy and irresponsible)

Belakangan ini, saya sering bermain (dan gontok-gontokan) bersama sosok berukuran…Lapang diatas. Inilah Big D & Sasori. Saya ajak karena selain rumahnya dekat, juga untuk menemani saya pulang dengan kekuatan HID lampunya (you know, lampu motor prasejarah saya sama seperti musik Miley Cyrus, ringan dan kurang bertanggung-jawab).

Finally…I can pose in front of camera! Now I knew this awkward feels to be sniped by lens, so im not surprised why Nabilah JKT48 looks a little embarrassed when I target her with my camera. Well, its time for me to learn how to become a subject of pics, not only learning how to take a pic. As Goethe said :

“A man’s manners are a mirror in which he shows his portrait…”

Pervy grin, crotch covering, not surprise why is she afraid of me hahaha….

Akhirnya…Saya bisa bergaya didepan kamera! Sekarang saya tahu bagaimana canggungnya berada dalam sorotan lensa, tidak heran Nabilah JKT48 sedikit sungkan saat saya todong dengan kamera saya. Well, saatnya saya selain belajar memotret, juga menjadi subjek akan foto. Seperti Goethe bilang :

“A man’s manners are a mirror in which he shows his portrait…”

Seringai mesum, menutupi selangkangan, tidak heran Nabila JKT48 gentar hahaha…

Well, that’s some flashback from Waduk Sermo Striders Meet from last month. Many things that I get, either of photography and motorcycle world. Hopefully, we can meet again on another Striders Meet, because John Lennon said :

“We all shine on…like the moon and the stars and the sun…we all shine on…come on and on and on…”

Ya, itulah kilasan pendek akan Waduk Sermo Striders Meet malam itu. Banyak hal yang saya dapat dalam pertemuan itu, baik soal fotografi & dunia motor. Semoga lain kali kita bisa bertemu dalam Striders Meet, karena John Lennon pernah berkata :

“We all shine on…like the moon and the stars and the sun…we all shine on…come on and on and on…”
