Gone for the weekend: RIZAL PROVINCE by The Pinoy Rider
Right at the doorsteps of Metro Manila and nestled at the southern end of the Sierra Madre, Rizal holds many secret natural and cultural treasures – from its seemingly endless zigzag roads, to alluring waterfalls and stunning rock formations, Spanish-era churches to 5 thousand year-old artworks (No kidding! Read on to find out what it is) and a passionate dedication to arts- the Province of Rizal truly has a whole lot more to offer to riders and travelers alike.
This is a 30+ liter Kappa topbox I installed on a fuel-injected Honda CBR to aid me in my touring.
Now, I didn’t want to put a bracket wherein it would make my bike look like a hanger because of the high bracket.
Mind you, this project was done with functionality in mind so I know for a fact that it risked losing some of the beauty of the bike. Anyway, I plan on using this mostly on out-of-town trips for my Motorcycle tour of the Philippines.
Please watch the video for more info. 😉

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.
IntraClub & Pocketbikes, IR Club Races and IR Open Club Races.
Last May 12th, I attended the 3rd round of the IR Club Race Series as a spectator and I had a lot of fun watching the races.
Hopefully I could invite my readers here to check out the remaining races this season (schedule posted in the pictures) because I’m sure you’ll have as much fun as I did watching the exciting races.
The location was also accessible as it’s only at the end of Buendia. It was actually my first time to watch a race (seriously) so it was a treat for me. Special thanks to Mr. Al Camba of Inside Racing for being so accommodating.
For the past few years, I’ve wanted to go to Daranak Falls. Whenever I pass by Rizal en route to doing a Laguna loop, I always happen to pass by the narrow road leading there from the highway and I promised myself to go back the next time I was in the area. That plan never materialized, not until today.
