Help for Typhoon Yolanda (International Name: Haiyan)

null

For those in Central Visayas, please help out in repacking goods to be delivered to the people from Bogo / Bantayan this weekend. These people lost their homes and families, and the least that we could do is to give them a little something. You may bring drinking water (1L / 1.5L Bottles), ready to eat food (none that would require any cooking like rice, noodles, etc), old clothes, etc. If you don’t have much, then you can give them your time. Feel free to give me a call at 0917-7213745 if you want to help. I will be at PITLANE RESTOBAR in A.S. Fortuna, Mandaue City this November 15th, Friday at 3 pm to help out. The ride to Bogo will be on the next day, as I (we) will be bringing the goods personally to them. #ReliefPH #YolandaPH

Pictures ng mga Pasaway!!! – PinoyRider.com edition

If there’s one thing that ticks me off, it would be irresponsibe motorcyclists. These people put the disciplined ones in a bad light, up to the point wherein the general public stereotypes all riders as irresponsible, uneducated, and unsafe.

I will be constantly updating this entry as I get to capture more pictures…to let everyone know how NOT to ride a motorcycle.

Sorsogon trip preparation – luggage.

I will be riding a sportbike for my “End of Luzon” trip so that poses a big problem – where to put my stuff for so many days. Initially I was thinking of bringing my Oxford Side Panniers but i figured it might be such a hassle dismounting it whenever I needed to make a stop since anyone can basically steal it by cutting it’s straps. The obvious answer – a topbox … But the dilemma was…a topbox on a sportbike? how bad would that look in pictures? I’ve seen so many sportbikers post pictures in the internet with their topboxes and it’s bracket being mounted so high, it looks like a hanger. I wouldn’t wanna be caught dead bringing one of those.

My Brand new Honda CBR 150R PGM FI

After a thorough elimination process, going through several bikes – Bajaj Rouser 220, Yamaha FZ16, among others…

Got a new bike.

Not sure how this will fit when I’m on my “Rides and Touring” mode since it’s a sport bike (Givi Side Bags perhaps?), but it sure damn looks good, and fast!

Please welcome Badong – my brand new Honda CBR 150R PGM FI Sport bike.
