Kase Lens – Mobile Photography and videography

When I originally planned the Philippine tour that I did back in 2014. I was dead set on using the iPhone 6 to document the whole trip. Then after a couple of weeks of using the iPhone, I was taking decent photos but I was not satisfied with the quality. It felt like I was taking the same kinds of photos again and again.

I did try to purchase some phone lenses from a Mac store before, they were not really that cheap as one would cost around 800-1300 PHP and I bought 2.

I have done around 5,000 Kms on this helmet and to be totally honest,  I’m impressed. After doing the PH Tour I decided to retire my old LS2 helmet because parts of it have already rusted, rubber parts were already peeling, water seeps in when you are riding in the rain and when it’s a pain in the ass to replace the visors whenever you are riding on a bright sunny day.

KTM Duke 390, 2014 Model

This is a review of the KTM DUKE 390 2014 model which I decided to sell after 3 months of owning it. It’s not news anymore that I won this motorcycle, I did not buy it for myself or was it a motorcycle that I had in mind when I was looking for a something to purchase. I liked it, I really do but there are just some reasons technical, financial and personal that made me want to let it go.
