samudrasg,yes carnet will be require.just info you better avoid jakarta-bandung route unless you may enjoy hard traffic jam.central java to east would be great.

I used Mr Lim at Cakra Enterprises in Penang to ship my bike from near Medan to Penang. Contact details are:



At the time (mid 2012) they were only taking bikes from Sumatra back to Malaysia because of problems with the Indonesian Navy. That may have changed.





A fair bit further north than you want, but he may know contacts

No, you can't go with the bike. I flew over. It took one or two days, if I recall correctly.

Yeah, the onion boat is what mine came over on. I presume the 2012 difficulties with the navy have been resolved?

got this reply:

Yes the onion boat leaves every Wednesday and he needs to contact Mr Lim (cakrashipping@gmail.com). Very helpful and quick to reply to emails. Easy peasy. xx
