Just got back from a 10 day trip around Palawan, picked up a XRM 125 for the trip. Yeah small little bike, but good enough to get the job done. The guy meet me at the airport. Loaded my bags up and left directly from airport parking lot. So basic route was Puerto Princessa to El Nido and back. And some explration along the way. Sorry not a big written report, picture report!

How much was bike rental ?? How many hours riding from PP to Elnido ?? What condition is road in , What was cost of rooms you stayed in ?? Great to see you getting on a small bike and looking around .

300 for the xrm, a xr200 was 500 a day. 5 hours or riding time, nice clean roads and not much traffic, easy to get gas. After Taytay the road turns to dirt for the last 40K to el nido, but its being paved now, so maybe be done within the next 6 months. Staid at Green views just 3K outside of elnido for 600 a night, low season rates. Very nice and on the beach.

Thanks for the info Dan , hopefully I will get there next year , this years travel is all sorted for now . I bet El Nedo will get more popular with road all finished . A friend of mine said there is great rides south of PP as well .

Hi Joel , do you live in Burbank ?? I have flown into the airport there twice and stayed with ADV Rider Harry Swan over the hill at Hollywood. 1st time I went riding in North Amerika I got a bit lost and clocked up 27,000miles in 4 months. Cheers Toddy

Wicked Virgin Island

This Island is about 30mins by pump boat from Santa Fe at Bantayan Island . Cool place to visit .











Cost to go here was 1,200p for boat shared between 6 of us , 100p each to go on island as it is privately owned and 300p to hire cottage for the day . 350p each for day in paradise. Cheers Toddy

:eek.....27k miles.....wow, are you sure it's not in kilometers.....

let me know next time you fly in. burbank airport is just about a mile from me. i could even hear your plane landing. what's harry's handle here in the forum? great if we could all hook up.

those pics from the islands make me want to go home and live there permanently. i enjoy both open water fishing and diving. yeah, love the warm water; visibility must be very good too and lots of good stuff to see.

kababayan and friends, keep those pics coming....and big thanks to all.

YaYa 27k miles in 4 months in 05 then in 06 done 19k miles in 3 months and 09 10k miles in just Alaska and Yukon . That was my 2nd trip to Alaska , great people in the great white north. I went to Sturgis bike rally each time . Dont know if I will get back to North Amerika again as its so cheap to live in the Phills . Life and work in New Zealand for 5-6 months and the rest of year in Phills suits me. So much to see here .

Nice pictures to bump the thread up.

Well, we in the Island of Luzon were not so blessed with dry weather since Monday. Those strong torrential rains have continuously pouring and there is floodwaters about. This was how it looked outside my house...

A local with his Invention Intervention water contraption!






My Neighbor bringing his friend to dry land after a drinking session. LOL!






The floodwaters taken from the gate of my house....
