Recently returned from Tacloban just after the typhoon. Unbelievable destruction of a once beautiful area. Amongst all the tragedy though the spirit and perseverance of the filipino people was astounding. Wish I could of stayed longer to help.

Wicked Whats happening in New Zealand



This is local legend Burt Munroe at Bonnerville Speed Week in the 1960s with his 1927 Indian Scout which done over 200 MPH at times . To remember Burt we have a week of racing in November at Invercargill. We have Hillclimb, Speedway long and Short track , Beach, Track, and Street races . Her is Pics of the Wyndham Street Races



No 30 is my friend Sid who raced his OW Yamaha 750 and his Nikkabaker Honda 1100 . He had a great weekend on both bike with 12 wins from 12 races









Its neat seeing all the old bikes out racing . The Burt Munroe Trophy was awarded to an Australian rider who only had 1 arm and leg . He didn't let his handicap stop him enjoying his bike racing . Cheers Toddy

Toddy; I remember Burt coming to the salt flats, the stories of casting his own pistons and things. It is always fun to see the old bikes. Have fun when you get back to the PI.

unfortunately there is possibility there going to get another big one

Agaton or Yolanda Part 2 Super Typhoon a Hoaxed According to PAGASA

Too early to say another 'super typhoon' heading for PH: PAGASA

MANILA - The state weather bureau denied rumors online that a weather formation supposedly stronger than super typhoon "Yolanda" will hit the Philippines in the coming weeks.

"It's too early to predict if the low pressure area (LPA) we are looking into right now will be as strong as Yolanda," Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) forecaster Gener Quiplong said.

"Actually, the possibility of that LPA to be a storm is still being monitored. Also, the LPA can be dissolved and not to continue as a storm," he added.

A report circulating on social media said that "super typhoon Agaton" will hit the Philippines on January 16 and 17, and will be more destructive than Yolanda.


Some netizens posted that "Agaton" is now in the Philippine area of responsibility, and urged the government to take action.

The hashtag "#Yolanda" trended on Twitter on Friday due to discussions about the alleged super typhoon, with several netizens asking for confirmation about "Agaton." Other users on Twitter posted prayers and warnings online.

In its latest update on Friday, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said the death toll due to Yolanda has reached 6,166.

Re Typhoon

I just looked at Pagasa weather map and to me there isn't anything to worry about as yet , lots of blue skies and very little rain . Hope im right . Last thing Phills need is another Yolanda.

I read your blogsot Mendo and you had a awesome adventure, I have been to some of the areas you have been but not near as wild as you, great report, nicely put together, you fellas from Hawaii have some skills, I think you are the same Mendo from the Accidental broadcast BlogSpot, I hope your brothers are alright, this is a wonderful country and as long as you have money life is good but it sucks to get injured

Wicked ADV Rider gathering in the Philippines , Whos in 4 it

There is a lot of inmates who post on here but we have never met each other . Im suggesting we get together for a weekend at a suitable location . I will be having a scout around Southern Luzon late April . An Island off mainland with Roro to it , nipa huts at a beach would be perfect . Y southern Luzon ?? because Herc and his mates can ride down from Manila and extras can join in along the way . Others can fly into Legaspi and be Jeepney, Bus, and Roro Queens like me . Time would be between April and October when im in Phills . Another option would be a fly in on charted light planes to Santa Fe on Bantayan Island and hire bikes , or a fly in to Camiguin Island on commercial flight from Cebu ( arrive Friday leave Mon ) or what ever suits your plans . So can you MAKE time to do this guys ?? Lets have feed back
