Accompanying a friend on the Laguna Loop as he checks out the handling of his new GS LC. Nakakainggit.

Namimiss ko na mag-ride. Nakakainggit mga posts niyo. Im currently in Melbourne for work and won't be back till end of July. I was hoping to get on a rental bike here but driving on the left is more confusing than i expected.

Keep those RRs coming

Not only driving. Remember to look the correct way before stepping off the curb, the traffic is coming from the wrong way.

A closer shot of our Laguna Loop ride (just keep going past Jariel's Peak).



If you're riding in San Pablo, check out Patis Garden Cafe. Sarap!

Welcome! Sent you a pm :) Congrats, let us know how you're finding the new GS (unless you had the same bike in the US. But congrats anyway :) )

Always ride with my camera so pics will come! I can borrow a scooter and come out sometimes I once rode a scooter from Makati to Manaoag, Pangasinan and back in one day on a Sniper which was an unforgettable trip to say the least.

Haha had the same exact bike in the States. Put 20000km on mine before leaving and it is the best motorcycle I have ever rode period. Look forward to meeting up for coffee or an adult beverage one day.

My hometown is just less than 30 minutes from manoag, Urdaneta City. But because of family, work and schedule, cant go home that often even if I wanted to

*Goodluck with riding on your new GS with sir GT

Well if you ever get time on Wednesdays we usually go there at least once a month on Wednesday for my wife to attend mass there.

This is a great thread. Hopefully I can ride in the Philippines someday. What is the best way to rent a motorcycle with panniers in Manila?
