Very exciting. I just got word a few minutes ago that I made it to the official roster of participants in the 2012 Petron SAFE RUN
SAFERUN is a SAFE AND RESULT-ORIENTED event wherein motorcycle manufactures and enthusiasts can test the fuel efficiency, performance, durability and dependability of their motorcycles over a 2-day 750km run in actual traffic conditions, various terrain and weather conditions.
Officially it states 2 days but in reality you have to cover the 750 kms in 19 hours and 30 minutes due to the cut-off times.
First Leg is from Manila to Alaminos, Pangasinan. Day 2 is from Alaminos to Petron Kisad in Baguio City.
The main reason I joined this event is due to the fact that it tries to veer away from the usual “racing” events that we see, which we know are very dangerous.
Now I have to get me and bike ready in order to at least achieve a respectable placing. 😉
