The Annual Bali Vespa Rally is not something you will find in the tour brochures and highlighted on sites like Trip Advisor and Expedia. It’s a quirky local gathering which see’s a number of clubs from around the island ride to a central meeting place, compare monstrosities, drink Arak and listen to terrible music.
And monstrosities are the order of the day! I don’t mean that in an entirely negative way in as much as Doctor Frankenstein was both repulsed and fascinated by his creature. The Balinese people are renowned for their creativity and I cant think of too many places on the planet where freedom of expression could possibly be more represented on two wheel shit boxes than here.
The photos and video were shot by me and are from my visit to the Island in 2014.
