The Hunger Games, Subang 1433H Trackday

In lifestyle, [StRiders]

In this Ramadan month, my riding activities was shockingly scarce. Blame my photographic work as well as sleeping activities that dominated my days from few months ago. Oh, and Mirage was entering her long period of…Hibernation. (more of her story later).

While the laziness virus raiding, few triggers that spirited my brain to active (imagining) are take a look at the SNR photos vault. And the most dangerous album with healthy dose of vigorous drug are my first photographs of circuit activities on Ramadan month, two years ago…

Di bulan Ramadhan ini, aktivitas riding saya termasuk minim. Salahkan kesibukan fotografi serta kegiatan tidur yang mendominasi hari-hari saya beberapa bulan belakangan. Oh, serta Mirage yang masuk periode…Tidur panjang. (more of her story later).

Disaat rasa malas mendera, salah satu pemicu semangat saya untuk kembali aktif (mengkhayal) adalah melihat arsip-arsip foto SNR. Dan yang paling berbahaya unsur penyemangatnya adalah foto-foto pertama saya akan kegiatan sirkuit di bulan Ramadhan, 2 tahun lalu…

For me, SNR headquarter in Bandung had always been the right destination for…sleeping. Cool temperature, solitary (except for some ring-a-ding stroker sounds & Pantura music that sometimes bursting), Palembang mattress. The complete synergy to begin the brain cells regeneration ritual.

Bagi saya, SNR headquarter di Bandung selalu menjadi destinasi yang tepat untuk…tidur. Sejuk, tidak begitu berisik (kecuali suara-suara 2-tak & musik Pantura yang kadang menyeruak), kasur Palembang. Sinergi yang lengkap untuk memulai proses regenerasi sel-sel otak.

…Unless when some poisonous creatures appeared and invited (forcefully) into their bizarre riding experiences. The most dangerously one? As you guess, Panjita. See his grin reflections behind Kuro? Noxious.

…Kecuali saat muncul makhluk-makhluk beracun yang mengajak (paksa) untuk pengalaman-pengalaman riding yang diluar nalar. Salah satu yang paling berbahaya? As you can guess, Panjita. Lihat refleksi seringainya dibalik Kuro? Membahayakan.

Panji’s spontaneous scenarios after ruining my sacred sleep times are : Subang circuit trackday times to testing Kuro’s performances after break-in period. After all, she was two-months age newborn at that time. Incidentally, there was another dangerous creature who participated in this trial of Ramadan…

Skenario spontan Panji setelah mengusik jam tidur sakral saya adalah, trackday di sirkuit Subang untuk mengetes performa Kuro setelah periode break-in yang kala itu, baru berusia beberapa bulan dalam asuhan Panji. Kebetulan, ada makhluk berbahaya lainnya yang ikut serta dalam cobaan bulan Ramadhan itu…

…Aris, with his partner (at that time), Begig. So, sportbike trackday on highly hot and dry circuit. Interesting, very interesting. They also make an oath to keep their fasting even they will tortured completely. God damn.

…Aris, bersama partnernya (saat itu), Begig. Jadi, trackday bersama sportbike di sirkuit dengan suhu tinggi, kering. Menarik, saat menarik. Mereka sendiri bersumpah akan terus beribadah puasa sekalipun akan ditempa habis-habisan. God damn.

I wonder, what in the world was their source of blazing passion to channelling their vulgar desires, in the form of sweated dancing together. The effects of unemployment status (at the time)? Or spiritual influence from the holy month of Ramadan? I didn’t know, maybe they were a religious…To their bike.

Entah darimana semangat mereka berkobar-kobar untuk menyalurkan hasrat vulgar mereka, dalam bentuk dansa bersimbah keringat bersama. Efek dari status pengangguran (saat itu)? Atau pengaruh spiritual dari sucinya bulan Ramadhan? Entahlah, mungkin mereka se-relijius itu…Terhadap motor mereka.

Another Striders that also being the witness of (that didn’t actually) sacred trackday, maybe because their curiosity of where Panji & Aris limit to still keep their fasting. Some special attendees was this couple of MC41, El-Presidente (1st MC41 that tortured by Panji) and Repsie (you know, MC41 trend barometer of CEBERUS Bandung).

Beberapa Striders lain juga ikut menjadi saksi trackday (yang sebenarnya tidak terlalu) suci ini, mungkin karena penasaran dimana limit Panji & Aris menjaga ibadah puasa mereka. Beberapa yang datang adalah 2 MC41 spesial ini, El-Presidente (MC41 pertama yang disiksa Panji) dan Repsie (kalian tahu, barometer trend MC41 di CEBERUS Bandung).

All right, its time to hit the dancefloor! Observing Aris action with Begig, now I know the history of how Ruby can fully-controlled by Aris. Bob Dylan said :

“Behind every beautiful thing there’s been some kind of pain.”

You can read their special story here, it fit for waiting into Ifṭār.

Baiklah, saatnya melindas lantai dansa! Melihat aksi Aris bersama Begig, saya jadi tahu bagaimana sejarahnya Ruby dapat dikendalikan sedemikian rupa oleh Aris. Bob Dylan pernah berujar :

“Dibalik setiap hal yang indah, tersembunyi sebuah keluh-kesah”

Anda bisa membacanya di kisah spesial mereka disini, cocok untuk menunggu jam berbuka.

Panji also hypnotized to keep spurring Kuro, even he sweated as s****l i*********e. (whoops, I nearly forget this was Ramadan month). Ah, the sensation of the first dance with new partner, who didn’t enamoured? From the beginning, they had concentrate their Suhoor fuel to breaking their bike performance limit. And that becomes my cue for start enthusiastic, testing my photographic skills in circuit arena.

Panji juga terhipnotis untuk terus memacu Kuro, sekalipun bersimbah keringat seperti sedang be********n s*****l. (whops, hampir lupa ini bulan Ramadhan). Ah, sensasi berdansa bersama partner baru, siapa tidak terpikat? Dari awal mereka sudah menghimpun energi-energi sahur untuk berlari menghantam limit performa motor bersama. Dan menjadi petunjuk saya untuk tidak kalah bersemangat mengetes kemampuan fotografi di arena sirkuit.

Now I remember, how complex was the first time snapping on circuit that not just being documented, but also creating visual art that containing aesthetic substances. I learn a lots techniques from Dhey here, from slow-and-fluid panning, Dutch angle (that becoming my favourite signature), and also some outside the viewfinder tricks like…

Saya kembali ingat, betapa rumitnya pertama kali memotret di arena sirkuit yang tidak hanya menjadi dokumentasi, namun juga karya visual yang memiliki substansi estetika. Saya belajar banyak teknik dari Dhey disini, seperti slow-and-fluid panning, Dutch angle (yang sekarang menjadi signature favorit saya), serta teknik-teknik diluar viewfinder seperti…

…Utilize transport service into pit and circuit area of Kuro & Begig Delivery. Yeah, keeping the stamina was crucial on physically and imaginative draining activities as motosport photography.

…Menggunakan jasa antar menuju pit dan area-area di sekitar sirkuit menggunakan fasilitas Kuro & Begig Delivery. Yeah, menjaga sisa stamina krusial dalam kegiatan yang menantang fisik & kemampuan imajinasi seperti fotografi motosport.

Yeah, keep learning was my mantra every time I jump into the field, either on motorcycle or photography world. Especially at Subang, where surprising things appeared suddenly, as those competition-spec Vespa rider…

Ya, terus belajar adalah mantra saya setiap kali turun ke lapangan, baik dalam dunia motor ataupun fotografi. Terutama di Subang, dimana hal-hal menakjubkan kadang muncul tiba-tiba, seperti rider-rider Vespa kompetisi…

…That we admittedly, pushing their limit harder with their wild scooter. Maybe its time SNR to recite the world of scooter with its romantic puffs and melancholy timbre.

…Yang kami semua akui, jauh lebih brutal dalam mencapai titik maksimal dengan skuter liar mereka. Mungkin saatnya SNR mengulas soal dunia skuter penghasil asap romantis dengan lengkingan melankolis ini.

And, they also encouraging Panji & Aris to keep spirited, finishing lap-by-lap with their partner. Fasting ritual aren’t restriction & limiting for seeking verse by verse of their motorcycle notation mysteries.

Dan, mereka juga menjadi penyemangat Panji & Aris untuk tidak kalah bersemangat menghabiskan lap demi lap bersama partner mereka. Ibadah puasa, bukanlah restriksi & limitasi dalam mencari bait demi bait akan notasi misteri motor mereka.

Hopefully, their spirited (two years ago, whether now) act also infecting all of us. Myself? Hmm, there was some (reverse) improvement of motosports photographic (this for example), also on restraining the carnal desires on Ramadan month.

Okay, good morning and its time to pull out into pillow, waiting Adhān Maghrib.

Semoga, semangat mereka (dua tahun yang lalu, entah sekarang) juga dapat menjangkit kita semua. Saya sendiri? Hmm, ada sedikit perkembangan (mundur) dalam beberapa foto terakhir motosports (sebagai contoh disini), juga dalam menahan hawa nafsu duniawi di bulan Ramadhan.

Baiklah, selamat pagi dan saatnya menarik diri menuju bantal menunggu Adzan Maghrib.
