Thailand to Indonesia, by scooter!

Is it possible? Yes.
Is it easy? No.

I've searched all internet about the topic and it's obvious that Malaysian-Indonesian border crossing can be troublesome and hassle. Main problems are paperwork for customs and significant amount of money involved to prepare it. So here are few basic steps I had to take according to some "internet advisers":

- prepare general set of documents for motorbike (see my next post!)
- find an agent /shipping agency/ in Malaysia who will ship my bike by ferry to Indonesia
- apply and become a member of Automobile Association Malaysia
- apply for "Carnet de Passages" document in Automobile Association Malaysia
- prepare deposit money /cash bond/ for bank according to market value of the bike + custom taxes
- find a shipping agency in Belawan /Sumatra/ to ship bike back to Malaysia
- find a passenger ferry from Malaysia to Sumatra Island
