Nice photos again. :)

One hasn't see rain until they have been in a tropical rain, and then add the wind of a typhoon. Flash floods and/or mud slides can be a real danger in many areas. Glad you were okay. The Army must have been out looking for rebels?

Pinay Ako, Thanks for the additional photos, They show how nice not only the riding is but, the people, and the country. As I have said, in other postings, for the life of me, I can't see why the Philippines has not been over run with foreign Adventure riders.

Three days in the rain will test anyone.

A nice place to ride, a nice place to relax, and nice eats, looks like it was a fun trip. (Glad to see you guys saved the Halo-Halo for the end of the meal.)

very cool rr and lots of nice pics. i'm impressed to see you young adv riders on small bikes.

here in the usa, we trailer small bikes.... only saw once a 125 ridden by an australian kid touring california and a korean kid on a 50cc did a cross country.

looking forward to see more of your adventurers.....

yeah.. whenever im somewhere for a ride (especially in the mountains where one will rarely see vehicles passing) the kids & the people cheer when they notice im a girl.

but of course they also cheer for my ride buddies (just a louder one for me)

and sometimes, when i pass by a group having a picnic beside the falls or beach, they invite us for a hefty meal (if i just have a lil space in my tummy for that, i will really give in )

there probably are some foreigners who tour some parts of the philippines on two wheels... but maybe they don't know this site? that's why they don't share their experiences here? i duno... just maybe.

even just a day of riding in the rain in a very cold place gives me that chill!

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR........

no, i ate the Halo-halo alternately with the pansit palabok.

i love the contrasting taste of a salty/sour against the sweetness of the dessert

here in the PI, majority owns and rides small bikes (considering the financial capability, road/traffic condition & fuel efficiency)

BUT there are the young ONES & ONCE who also have big bikes (but not alot u will see on the roads)

here in the PI, SOME trailer their big bikes to get to some roads that are more worthy of the superbike's speed and agility.

thanks for keeping this thread alive

im too forgetful that sometimes i don't remember i have a thread here

here are some pictures i hope you guys will enjoy

`````````````````````````````````````````````````` ```````````

aw....

I can't find the pics of the next ride i did..

(maybe it's on the cd)

here are few from my longest ride for a day on my 125cc bike



my David and their Goliaths



waiting for our bar-B-Qs

`````````````````````````````````````````````````` ```````
`````````````````````````````````````````````````` ```````
`````````````````````````````````````````````````` ```````

after about a couple of weeks....... the event.......



my energizer for the ride



with the other participants



another fellow rider



one of the committee





before take-off



my only shot during the entire ride (courtesy of another rider)

it was my first time to do the North Loop so i kept on asking the passersby for directions.

1,080 kms. for a day on my small bike.

i was alone most of the time.

on the latter part of the event, i was lucky to have joined a group who was also participants of the event.

and before the finish line, there was the last gas stop.

they said they will wait for me...

and i was left all alone.

the zigzag of Naguillan Road all the way to Baguio City (finish line) i was almost freezing, my hands and body trembling becoz of too much cold.

i was almost crying to death being alone in the zigzag at 2 in the morning.

the whole place is really creepy.....

BUT in the end it was rewarding.

Please tell us more about this North Loop.

1080 K, that is what 680 miles?

On a 125cc, how long did it take you? And do you think that you will ever do it again?

I forgot your young.

1,080 kms. = 671.080 miles (according to google)

it took me about 23 hours and 36 minutes for that loop.

IF i get a higher displacement bike, "maybe" i'll do it again for a reason.

but for just accomplishing it?

not anymore....

me on a 125 cc bike did it in 24 hours....

anybody on a higher displacement bike can definitely do it less than that (unless the bike or the rider bugs down )



the ride started in POINT 2 (Manila)
(it was exactly in Taguig BUT it's not written there
[or i just did not find it there?])

then POINT 13 (Bulacan), 24 (Cagayan) then to the left --- Sanchez Mira, Pagupud, all the way to Laoag which is POINT 22

then POINT 21.... POINT 20

POINT 29 (BAGUIO) --- Finish Line

Boy, or rather GIRL, to maintain an average of over 28 mph for 23.6 hours going through all of those towns with traffic, gas stops and all, that is great. That is a trip you can tell your Grandchildren about.

Thanks for the map, that will sure help people who are not familiar with the area understand just what you did.

You are showing what a joy motorcycling can be. This proves the size of the bike does not determine how much fun you can have.

Thank you for showing us your trips.

Take Care, Ride Safe...
