East Timor on Saturday

My bike is on the boat from Darwin to East Timor, I'll be following it on Saturday. If there's any one around Indo between there and Malaysia, it would be good to meet up.

I'll be getting a 60 day visa, but I hope to get through much quicker.

My email is tpwalker@mac.com

Malacca ferry

Good luck with the ferry - when we crossed a coulpe of years ago it was passenger only from Malacca - Dumai...

You can ship your bike seperately to Dumai from a place about 20Km north, check our entry in the shipping pages

Angry biking in Indonesia.. BEWARE

Have just arrived on the ferry in Dumai from Malaka and the police have impounded my bike! Having read Chris's report I was going to miss the police station but customs would not stamp my carnet and rang the police to where I was escorted.
I am trying to contact another office after the weekend and see if there is some way I can get out of this without going back to Melaka. It seems that the prob is the Dumai police. Maybe I can get in from Penang but of course I will lose my 60 day visa if I leave now and it is all extra expense.
Will keep you posted
Linda

Linda, please keep us updated on what happened. Were you able to "work something out" with the police?
