Pocket Full of Garden – Lewie Dunn
“This is the bike I had built specifically for Lewie, It’s a kind of Tracker Scrambler Dual Sport hybrid.” says Dustin Humphrey, director of Deus Indonesia. “The bike is all black because, well, Lewie just is an all black kind of guy. It has two back tires because, well, Lewie is a two back tire kind of guy. The bike went well for him, although he won’t ride it around town because he reckons it’s too flash. Now that the trip is over I will probably take the knobbys off and put on something a little more street friendly.”
Here’s a little insight into the trip from Mr. Two Back Tire’s himself.
How long have you been riding a motorcycle?
Just a couple of years. Since Dustin invited me to Bali really… Pretty good bikes to learn on huh?
What does motorcycling mean to you?
A form of transportation, without being loud and arrogant in the process.
What bike did you ride on the trip? Thoughts? Would you add or remove / improve anything?
I rode a badass looking, jet black, eye catching, lady respecting, rocking rollin’, slayin’ machine. Which has an engine that has something to do with KLX’s. Excuse the ignorance.
How was it living on the bike for 8 days? Is this the longest trip you have done on a motorcycle?
It was really cool to be honest. To get to experience parts of Bali that I never knew existed was eye opening. Woah that’s deep… Super long trip which I kinda didn’t want to end.
What was your most memorable part of the trip?
Probably that part when we crossed the Atlantic ocean… Well it was a “small” river, but mannnn…. Our guide thought I was some enduro legend. I got soaked head to toe, was really pissed off about my brand new boots. Buuuut, it was really cool at the end of the day. Kinda wanna do it again. Let’s round up an amateur group. I’ll lead the way.
If you could do any part different, what would it be?
Have heaps of money and shout the boys Bintangs every night.
Pick another person from the trip and give us a little insight on them. Anything impressive / disappointing?
Peloton Tom… I thought he would bring a bunch of vegan treats. All he had was a hilarious collection of jokes and a handsome smile… What’s doing later?
You went to quite a different type of Bali than you are used to. What surprised you the most about the areas you visited?
The climate and the realisation that Indonesian teenagers just don’t sleep.
Out of everyone on the trip who would you let punch you in the face?
Harry Mark, our photographer, because I give him way too much grief for how nice and hard working he is. Ah hell it, I’m going to have to hit myself for that aren’t I?
If you had to choose a song to listen to in your helmet whist riding those mountain roads, what would it be?
Silverchair – Tomorrow… obviously.
Where else in the World would you like to explore via motorcycle and why?
Round trip of Aus. My Dad did it back in the 70’s and he turned out alright…
