Just a short Sunday ride, but I've never been here before.



After taking a narrow exit from People’s Park in the Sky to Tagaytay-Cabuyao Road (a few gravelly sections, but not that bad; unlike my friends on dual sports, I was on a street bike, and it was fine), you end up at the Canlubang Mansion (aka, the Marcos Mansion) near Barangay Casile, Cabuyao, Laguna.



It's a dilapidated (and supposedly haunted) reminder of the excesses of the Marcoses era.

Thanks! I lurk a lot, nakakahiya lang mag-post (if you're a foreigner - it's embarrassing to post) since my rides aren't as adventurous/picturesque as those of most of the contributors on this thread, ha ha ;P

Sa US lang naman talaga snob ang mga tao sa scooters. For the rest of the world, a scooter is a motorcycle, ibang klaseng motorsiklo lang. I don't think a big bike is better or worse than a scooter. Lots of riders have and use both; the right tool for the right task. :)

It dont matter what u ride , as long as you enjoy it . To me the perfect ride is a Yamaha YBR 125 in Philippines , but I would prefer it if they had spoke rims . I will try and post some of my new pics. Im still at Bantayan Island till end month then away to Palawan . Cheers Toddy

Yep, taga BF. Daming riders dito; lahat ng mga kasama ko sa pics, mga kapitbahay lang (and coincidentally, all of them happen to also own scooters, he he).

Dream ko rin magka VStrom 650. I really like my current bike of course, pero sa totoo lang, masyado siyang mabigat.
