Thanks for your comment vanveen!
It would be easier and faster paced crossing the bridge if I used my tiny YBR 125G.




For those haven't seen the video of the Touratech Travel Event 2012 in the Phils last March 2012....check it out!

Just got back from the PI, had great trip and already planning the next trip. Unfortunately I didn't ride a motorcycle except in a tricycle. Where is the best place to buy a used motorcyle on Luzon (especially in northern Luzon)? My dad is building is more townhomes in Dagupan City and now have a place to store a motorcyle now.


Btw I took a lot pictures and let me know if want me to post of them.

Thank you for posting scrappyscooter!

Please do upload the pictures you've taken to show other inmate your experience here in the Philippines. Dagupan City is a very hot and humid place because it is near the sea.

Cheers!!!

Nice Pics...

Very inspiring for a newbie in Adventure Riding like me.

I'm racking up the mileage on my GS and preparing myself for the 2014 BOSS Ironman Challenge

Meantime, I guess the Touratech Run this coming weekend serves as my dry run.
