My first time to have a motorcycle blessed. I got my 2014 Kawasaki ER-6N just last December 24th. Praying for a safe trip whenever I use this bike.
Kaybiang Tunnel ride with Northgate Riders
Good Times with good friends. Enjoyed the backroads, good views and the open highways.
Destination: Kaybiang Tunnel – the country’s longest underground highway tunnel
Route: Muntinlupa – Bacoor – Imus – Dasmarinas – Trece Martires – Naic – Maragondon – Ternate – Nasugbu (Batangas) – Tagaytay – Amadeo – General Trias – Dasmarinas – Imus – Bacoor – Muntinlupa – Las Pinas – Paranaque (220 kms)
I enjoyed it more the second time around with the company of good friends. The last time I was here, everything was still under construction, although the good people let me pass through to the other side. Now it’s open to the public. This tunnel connects Ternate, Cavite and Nasugbu, Batangas – reducing the usual 4 hour travel time to 1 hour only.
A visit at Kawasaki Leisure Bikes Showroom aka Kawasaki Krib in Libis, Quezon City. This was for my ER-6N’s PMS. I also took some pictures so check out the beautiful leisure bikes on display!
Thank God for motorcycling, I am able to reach places I’ve only dreamed about and explore the beauty of our country. My last hurrah for 2013: The highest point in the Philippine Highway system in Atok, Benguet. It was quite fulfilling to travel this far and enjoy the breathtaking views. We are all blessed, happy new year! Live Free…
Palawan Adventure by The Pinoy Rider
The Provincial Map of Palawan
Just a week after traveling to the beautiful Kaybiang Tunnel in Ternate, I went on a birthday trip to Palawan. Initially, I wanted to bring my Honda CBR to Palawan but upon checking the costs, I figured maybe next time when I get rich, so I just booked a plane ticket. It was alright with me because I knew that motorbike rental shops in Palawan are abundant. I also knew some people who are renting out their own bikes so bike condition wouldn’t be a problem.
Hi Guys, please grab the latest copy of InsideRACING Magazine (Volume 11 Number 10) and read about my journey from Metro Manila to Cebu via Bicol – Samar – Leyte, right before Typhoon Yolanda hit Visayas. Hopefully this Epic Ride will serve as a guide for future travelers who would like to travel the same route as it contains all the necessary information to help you on your trip: from the route you will take up to the RoRo details you will need. Though it is difficult, it is possible – all 3 islands and 1100 kilometers of it. Live free…
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
Cebu’s affluent gated communities located north of the Cebu City, which was developed by the same corporation that had developed Manila’s prestigious gated communities of Forbes Park, Dasmariñas Village, and Ayala Alabang. This prime subdivision is located on a hill or an elevated area, providing a breezy living environment and stunning views of the city.
Thanks for the warm welcome AMBC-Cebu! Can’t wait to conquer the TCH with you guys!

During one of my recent trips to the Province of Isabela, I chanced upon this huge fixture by the side of the main highway of Ilagan, Isabela. At first, I thought it was just some sort of a decoration. But upon looking closely, it dawned upon me that this big structure was actually one of Isabela’s Pride – as it was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s biggest rocking chair.
Met up with my good friend, and the only lady racer I know – Team Suzuki – Vman Racing’s Danna Uy here in Cebu. Thanks for the insights and the kind words. Good luck on your racing career Danna!

Located on Mt Busay, Tops offers a beautiful view of Cebu.
To get away from the stresses of the Metro, I will be embarking on a journey to Cebu via motorbike. I went here before taking on the route from Ormoc, now I think it’s time to take either the Isabel or Palompon pump boats to bring me to the Queen City of the South.
I am currently conditioning my bike, and preparing the stuff I would be using. Preparation is key in this arduos task as this will require me to travel at least a thousand kilometers, and boarding 2 ferry boats to reach Visayas.
I plan on staying in Cebu for at least a couple of months, not only to tour, but also to de-stress and be refreshed. Not bad for a plan, eh?
Trees, plants, flowers, and people. That’s all I saw.
The Pamplona church, built in the 1617, is the oldest in Cagayan.
I highly recommend you guys to go on a little bit of pansit food trip whenever you visit Cagayan.
