At last! Shootupnride’s [Striders Shootout] column are back! So, what’s today story? Hmmm…Time to check stock images at SNR fanpage

Gah, it got excessively of nasty and wet pictures, complete with soil, water, insects and even carrion. Disgusting! Why those Striders are proud corrupting SNR fanpage hygiene? Okay, its time to find the answer, by looking at some Striders in action pic, ravaging Indonesia natural terrain…Prepare the splash!

At last! Kolom [Striders Shootout] kembali! Err, saya cerita apa ya? Hmmm…Saatnya cek stok foto di fanpage SNR

Gah, banyak sekali foto-foto jorok, basah, lengkap dengan tanah, air, bahkan bangkai serangga. Menjijikan! Kenapa para Striders dengan bangga mengotori fanpage SNR? Saatnya kita menengok foto -foto Striders yang beraksi menerjang medan-medan alam Indonesia…Prepare the splash!

Cross-country motorcycle riding, especially on rainy season always guarantee viscous composition of mud & another disgusting things on the photo. See the front tires that belonging to Chandra’s Shogun FD 125 above, surely it will not fit for “Most Beautiful Motorcycle Tyre Photo 2014“…

Mengendarai motor melintasi alam, apalagi di musim hujan selalu menjamin komposisi kental akan lumpur & hal-hal menjijikan dalam foto. Lihat ban depan Shogun FD 125 milik Chandra Sudrajat diatas, tidak mungkin masuk dalam kategori “Foto Terindah Ban Motor 2014″…

…But look at what they did (and enjoyed) together before the previous photo was taken? They bravely run into natural pool (or swamp?) at Bromo, this is spartaaaaa! Yeah, I can imagine Chandra big smile behind his full-face helmet, certainly covered by dirty mud!

…Namun melihat apa yang mereka lakukan (dan nikmati) bersama sebelum foto itu diambil? Mereka menerjang kolam (atau rawa?) alami di Bromo, this is spartaaaaa! Dan saya bisa membayangkan senyum lebar Chandra dibalik helm full-face, yang kotor akan lumpur tentunya!

Speaking getting dirty at Bromo, Mujtaba Arief also had similar story with Chandra. The difference was, his white Vario didn’t included its air filter. And finally, jammed. Reckless desert ride? At least they had an interesting experience that immortalized in this photo. But please, don’t imitate Arief action okay!

Bicara soal kotor-kotoran di Bromo, Mujtaba Arief juga punya cerita yang mirip dengan Chandra. Bedanya, Vario putih tunggangannya tidak dilengkapi filter udara. Dan akhirnya macet. Reckless desert ride? Setidaknya mereka punya pengalaman yang menarik yang terperangkap dalam foto ini. Namun jangan tiru aksi Arief ya!

Indeed, some Striders had prepared arsenal to face the rural battlefield. Check the Ahmad Dani Udiawan F1ZR rear tire above. Lightweight two-stroker, combined with “appropriate” footwork, should ensure the continuity of pleasure (read : inappropriate) crossing the natural barriers…

Memang, beberapa Striders sudah menyiapkan persenjataan untuk menghadapi medan tempur. Cek ban belakang pacul di F1ZR milik Ahmad Dani Udiawan diatas. Stroker berbobot ringan, kaki-kaki “tepat”, tentu menjamin kelangsungan akan kesenangan (dan ketidak-patutan) akan melintasi rintangan-rintangan alam…

Hey, how about stocker bike? Hery Kancil answered that classic question with the this photo. Ugh, looking his photo forcing us to think :

“That photo was so dirty, it makes us want to take a bath…”

Hey, bagaimana dengan motor standar? Hery Kancil menjawabnya dengan foto diatas. Ugh, melihat foto diatas membuat kami sampai berpikiran :

“Saking kotornya foto itu sampai-sampai kami jadi ingin mandi…”

No matter what size of bikes, riders and nature that shall be passed, those Striders…gritty enough to drown their motorcycle into problem. Damarezky got his reason Sasori (Scorpio 225 without front fenders above) looks like as it finished plowing fields :

“Because larger tire still can’t reached by my wallet, at least covering it by mud make it looks, well, larger. Even, chain and fender rubbing creaking sounds absolutely didn’t pleasure my ears…”

Tidak peduli ukuran motor, pengendara & alam yang akan dilewati, Striders-striders ini selalu berani untuk…menenggelamkan motor mereka kedalam masalah. Damarezky punya alasan mengapa Sasori (Scorpio tanpa fender depan diatas) seperti baru selesai membantu petani membajak sawah :

“Karena ban berukuran lebih besar belum mampu diraih dompet saya, setidaknya balutan lumpur bisa membuatnya terlihat lebih besar. Meski bunyi gesekan rantai & fender akibat tanah tidak terdengar seperti musik di telinga”

That’s it. Moments like getting stucked, drowned, and crashed pretty sure always being consequence of playing dirty. Hey, Iqbal picture above reminded me about this post, that got quote “That’s what comrade are for

Itulah, momen-momen seperti tertahan, tenggelam & rusak akan selalu menjadi konsekuensi bermain kotor. Hey, saya jadi ingat akan post ini soal berbagi lumpur & masalah, yang mengingatkan saya akan “Itulah gunanya rekan yang menemani perjalanan”

Even, yeah, best friends armed with camera more prioritize immortalizing humiliation moments than helping first…

Meski, ya, teman terbaik yang dipersenjatai kamera lebih memprioritaskan mengabadikan momen-momen memalukan dibanding menolong dahulu…

Relax, Rizki Novrizal and Nadia, his Ninja 150 M didn’t suffer serious sore, except unison of scornful laugh by Diki & Firly, that also shared same Bukit Tunggul dirt slide punishment. No pain? No gain!

Tenang, Rizki Novrizal dan Nadia, Ninja 150 M-nya tidak menderita cedera serius, kecuali suara tawa unison Diki & Firly, yang sama-sama mengalami hukuman dari dirt slide Bukit Tunggul. No pain? No gain!

Anyway, that’s some photos that being evidence of how dirtiness, aren’t always carry a negative connotation. Yes, not all of those no-safe-guaranteed actions got happy endings, if aren’t ridden with right mindset and bravery. Surely, not everyone want to trying the hardship of crossing Tea field as Abank Arie and Ki Raden, his Supra X 125…

Anyway, itulah beberapa foto-foto yang menjadi bukti mengapa kotor, tidak selalu berkonotasi negatif. Ya, tidak semuanya menyenangkan memang untuk aksi tanpa jaminan keselamatan diatas, jika tidak disertai dengan mindset dan keberanian yang tepat. Tentu tidak semua orang mau merasakan kesulitan melintasi kebun teh seperti Abank Arie dan Ki Raden, Supra X 125 diatas…

…But who aren’t tempted with serene scene above? Coffee, camera and sublimity of nature, what a combination! Just like Tomiko Van sings at “New World“;

“Because we’ve realized that freedom isn’t something you’re given. It’s something you grab with your hands.”

…Tapi siapa yang tidak tergiur akan suasana tenteram diatas? Kopi, kamera dan keindahan alam liar, what a combination! Seperti Tomiko Van nyanyikan dalam “New World“;

“Because we’ve realized that freedom isn’t something you’re given. It’s something you grab with your hands.”
