When you think of the palmy shorelines of Bali, the mental imagery usually comes hand-in-hand with clear waters lapping at the sand, peace, quite and the odd barrel to break up the day. Friday the 16th of October was not that. It was not that at all.

DEUS SLIDETOBER FEST 2015

Hundreds of folk hit Batu Tampih Beach to witness Deus Slidetober Fest as dozens of motorcycles, some built for the dirt and some slightly unorthodox, braaapped their way across the sands.

This is one of the few events where almost every other country around the world looks on and says “Man, I wish we were allowed to do that!”
Could you imagine doing this on Bondi, Long Beach or Watergate Bay? It just wouldn’t happen.

The crowds were out in force, as was the sun, making for one roasting hot day of two wheeled fun.
