Every december, the rainy season begins in Jakarta and the torrential downpours are begin to cause flooding. With flood waters rising over river banks and flood gates, water quickly spills into the streets, clogging and stopping traffic. This year, Jakarta has seen the worst flooding in ten years and the city is in a state of emergency, with flood waters reaching 10 meters in some places. However, that hasn't stopped these motorcycles from traveling. As you can see from these pictures, Jakarta's riders are braving the storm.
