Noob to adv riding but long time rider on different variations of bikes.

Recently swapped out my Piaggio MP3 400 for a pre loved BMW F650GS.
Ztechnik Vstream screen finally arrived yesterday and installed, albeit painfully, right away.

Hoping to take it on a shake down ride tom to Real, Quezon with some Vespa peeps.

We're set to do a Mt. Data ride via Aritao/Mt. Pulag route next week, any idea how the roads to Abatan via Pulag is?

Hope to meet more of you guys on the road/trails/beach soon!

Welcome vespinoy to the Philippine Adventure Rides of Advrider.com!

That's a nice and light weight duallie you got there.
I can't wait to ride with you and your circle of friends.

Get to know your bike well before you join me and others exploring the beauty of the Philippines Islands!


Fellow inmates, let's welcome vespinoy (Bimbo) to the forums. He is another converted friend of mine. In fact it's been 6 years already since I started to convert him too.



I just finish another epic 3 day journey loop from:

- Manila
- Bulacan Province
- Pampanga Province
- Tarlac Province
- Nueva Ecija
- Aurora Province
- Quirino Province
- Isabela Province
- Ifugao Province
- Mountain Province
- Ilocos Sur Province
- La Union Province
- Pangasinan Province
- Tarlac Province
- Pampanga Province
- Bulacan Province
- Back to Manila

Here are some teaser pix of that awesome ride......


















Do you want to see more???

Your Vee is looking good in a dirty-girl way, Herc! Ridden hard and put away wet (and muddy) !

I'm looking forward to seeing you by this weekend, in Manila. For this trip, I'm making plans to ride to Banaue, Sagada and points north on a Transalp. Will probably fit Baguio, Vigan and Pagudpud into the itinerary. I'll be interested in knowing where your water crossings were, so there is a chance of avoiding them. (Actually that looked fun!)

Here's a map of the planned route that weekend. There were slight changes on the during the 3rd day of the trip. We exited at Tagudin Ilocos, Sur Instead of going down thru Aritao..




This pix is ovelooking the Galgalongan River between Tadian, Mt. Province and Cervantes, Ilocos Sur. The Aluling bridge....

Cheers!!!
