Philippines! 2 week impromptu trip.... I need a bike.

From the title, yep, on the 23rd of July I head to the Philippines for 2 weeks.
Looking at renting a KLR650 from www.mabuhaybikes.com/ unless an inmate has a better suggestion.

Also.. what happened to that map of people willing to have a tent thrown in their back yard? A link would be appreciated.


SOooo, really stoked about this. This will be my first "no government support" alone trip. ANY and ALL advisement is welcome here :)

Free citizens must protect themselves. Police do not protect you from crime, they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because unarmed and facing armed thugs, I am inadequate.

Nice bike in Angeles City have a couple of Kawasaki Versys and ER6's.

http://www.nice-bike.com/

Easy to ride from there compared to Manila.

Your going to be there in the rain season, just check your route, some roads eg east coast are unsealed and turn to mud.

Have a great time.

Sounds like fun!

Good luck and have fun! Filipino people are wonderful (well.. some of the taxi drivers.. some super nice, others not so much).

I've only rented a bike on Cebu province, but would like to some day travel around Baguio and points north with my fiance/wife on a moto.

I'd would be interested and very appreciative if you have time to share your motorbike adventure. I've only traveled to Baguio by bus, but it is beautiful with very comfortable temperatures. Probably the only place this spoiled Colorado resident could camp in the Phils.

Money tip... Be sure to have smaller bills (100s) when you need to get around by taxi or even incidental food/drink expenses. Money exchange booths give out 1000s, but nobody likes to take them for small purchases, so get a good supply of small bills when you exchange US$.
