Lorenzo completes Indonesian PR visit

MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo completes Indonesian PR visit.
MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo wrapped up his Indonesian Yamaha PR tour on Monday, before starting his one week holiday in Bali.

For the last day of his official activities, the factory Yamaha star flew to Bali from Surabaya to attend a lunchtime meet-and-greet with 1200 Yamaha customers. Lorenzo took to the stage with 100 local actors to take part in a traditional Indonesian show.

Following the show was a press conference for 100 local journalists then selected Yamaha dealers and customers joined the young Spaniard for dinner at a special safari restaurant.

"Today was the last event day in Indonesia for me before my holiday here,” confirmed Lorenzo, during the final 'diary entry' covering his visit. “I woke up with the Jawa Post, the main Indonesian newspaper, in my hands to see myself on the front page, today the issue was a very special "national" version.

“The morning started quietly but not for long. Again I trained a little bit and we had early lunch at eleven because the flight to Bali was at 1pm, I slept all the time on the plane. When you arrive to Bali you feel the weather change. It's a one hour flight and the time is one hour less, but there are some differences!

“From the airport we went straight to the Bali Safari. There was an amazing, typical 'Balinese' show with more than 100 actors on the stage. At the end I was called up and I shook the hands of a lot of fans. More than 1200 people came to see the show and, I hope, also to meet me!

“I still don't understand their language though so I am not so sure what they were saying. After that was the press conference with almost 100 journalists. It is my second time in Bali, but my first time for an event, last year I was here just for my holiday.

“At 6pm it was time for dinner which is very early for me. In Spain it is impossible that early, but here... I've eaten sushi, Bali's spicy soup, fish and green tea. The Safari restaurant was unbelievable. Remember when I was with Yamaha at the Monterey Aquarium? Well, this time I was not under the sea, but in the middle of the jungle!

“The restaurant is a circle and outside of the huge glass around the middle are the animals, the kings of the jungle, 14 lions, so beautiful! Also they have crocodiles, elephants and other animals. It is the biggest and best safari in Indonesia.

After the most dominant performance in 2010 Jorge is relaxed and ready to defend his record destroying title in 2011.I will never forget the look on Rossi's face and body language.

@sladge - real race fans don't frequent this site anymore. we were overwhelmed by the Rossi drama queens who really don't know racing and fill the forum with past, present and future excuses why Rossi is now the 3rd best rider on the grid. you can not accept that Lorenzo out flashed, out raced and out Rossi'ed Rossi. from "if it weren't because of the shoulder Rossi would have been champion" to " Rossi won't be 100% until March and that's why he won't do well. while he'll race Alonso in a car/go-kart and snow board, and bounce a champagne bottle around like the shoulder was fine, , because it is!, and he has all of you fooled. In the end, real race fans win because we don't buy excuses, just results, and the best always wins championships..
