Coffee and custom motorcycles.

Coffee and custom motorcycles.

I was looking for something to do that weekend when a Facebook event invitation came up. It was for the Bikes and Breakfast morning motorcycle gathering. I have been planning to go to this event for some time now. But most of the time its held down south, which is quite far away from me. This time they are doing it in the east and the event place is just 10 mins from where I live, I then decided that this is my chance to experience what this event is all about.

People: Rizalito Marin

I went through some really dark times during my 5 year motorcycle experience. Most of those can be attributed to bad relationships with mechanics who brought me nothing but misery. It’s extremely hard to find reputable and trust worthy motorcycle mechanics. Most will start of being friendly, but later you realize that their sole intention is to milk you with your hard earned money.

Maarat trail ride with Jaime Dempsey 02/03

We got to the top with no drama.

We got to the top with no problems.

Everyone was delighted to reach the top without encountering any problems. The way everyone rode made everything seem easy, even Jaime was riding confidently and comfortably. So were all smiles once we reached the top, everybody was taking selfies and getting photos to prove that they were able to take their custom bikes to the top. I, on the other hand was busy taking shots and sorting out the action cams in hopes of getting something once we start heading back.

I don’t usually do this. I’m often invited to ride with different groups, sometimes people want to join me on my rides, other times a tour, resort or a hotel would invite me to visit them and almost always I say “No”. I can list down the reasons why I say no to those invitations, but that’s not topic of this post. I do however want to let you know why I said “Yes” to this one.

Travel By Heart: Day 02 – Same country, different language, one culture 01/03

Slow down and you will find something interesting.

Slow down… you might find something interesting.

Time to go, tourists are starting to pour in. In a few minutes, this place will be filled with people taking selfies. I’m not exactly a people person, yes I might be able to talk to families and converse with individuals whom I don’t know. But there’s something about being in big crowds that really stresses me, I actually skipped two big events during my PH tour because of it. Continue reading

The other side of Mayon.

The other side of Mayon.

I’m on my way to Bicol now, there is some kind of itch within me that makes me want to leave the island of Luzon as soon as I can. I felt like I’m not having a proper adventure while I’m still here. I can ride to any part of Luzon anytime I wish because it’s just big island and I have been to the most notable places.
