3. Why southern Luzon --> Legaspi City ?? because Herc and his mates can ride down from Manila and extras can join in along the way .

4. Others can fly into Legaspi and be Jeepney, Bus, and Roro Queens like me.

5. Time would be between April and October when im in Phills .

6. Another option would be a fly in on charted light planes to Santa Fe on Bantayan Island and hire bikes ,

7. 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

Riding to Legaspi, Albay is possible in my book.
Many rider buddies from Naga, Legaspi, Sorsogon and neighboring towns too
It's only 460kms from Makati City.
I can bring a couple of ride buddies.
I prefer a long weekend date with a friday or Monday Philippine holiday.


Any other comments from Philippines Inmates?

2014 Ironman Challenge Orientation night

Well it all started during the orientation night last Dec 18, 2013 at BMW Autohaus in Libis, Quezon City





A whole new breed of riders attended the orientation night. Riders from the provinces of Baguio, Ilocos, Batangas, Cavite, Rizal, Laguna, Alaska to name a few. They where all excited to join the prestigious 2014 BOSS Ironman Challenge! It was set to happen January 11-12, 2014.

During that time I was undecided to join again because I've been doing it for a long time.....



See you on "Send Off" come Jan 10, 2014

I'm assuming this ride is for big bikers only. Right?

Welcome to the Philippine Adventure Rides thread Exwai.


Yes sir, that event was exclusively for large displacement bike. However there is another motorcycle event in the country that accepts smaller bikes as participants.

Feel free to post your Philippine Adventures here as this thread is not only for big bikers.

Herc,

It's fun to see you riding the Ironman on your wide-glide, luxo-tourer scooter! And StampedeBlue still rockin' the DR Big!

I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the RR!

Hey Terry! How are things? I am very sorry for not being able to go to the family dinner/celebration on your last night here in Manila. I have another schedule that night.....

I like that term you used...... "Wide-Glide, Luxo-Tourer Scooter" .... it has the similarities!



Well to continue, the 2014 IX BOSS Ironman Challenge started sending off riders at 11:00pm. Our group was separated and we entered the send of ramp individually. I think was able to go about 11:45pm.

Before send of gsblue participated as a sponsor and his company ..... The WRU GPS Tracking and Navigation had several mine-tracker devices given to special riders. With this device, viewers can track the location of the a specified rider wherever he or she maybe during the event here --> http://wru.ph/eventtracking/boss_ironman/


Check the tracking page here:

Password: 123456



Check out gsblue'c company WRU GPS Tracking and Navigation here ---> http://www.wru.ph/



Here's how the tracking device looks like....





And we were off...





The first chance I was able to take picture was at the end of the TPLex (after NLex and SCTex), at about 12:30am while waiting for the others.....

Checkpoint # 1 and 2

The first checkpoint about 183kms from starting line was in San Jose, Nueva Ecija.

---> https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=T...2&via=1,2&z=12

Being the first stop, so many riders. All was still sharp and fast, the gas station was jampacked. Me and my group fueled up in the station before and just had our passport stamped. Sorry no pictures. I signalled my group to take off.... first time, second, time and at the third time I moved out and rolled slowly hoping for them to catch up.

What??? Me rolling out slowly? That's something unbelievable! But at least I tried..... The slow paced started catching on.... still no group riders on sight of my side mirrors... Since my ever dependable, long time ride buddy stampedeblue was there, I knew they were in good hands. Oh well, I decided that its back to the normal riding condition for me. I rode my normal pace (which is above average fast) and slowly riders started to be in my line of sight, one by one, I overtook them on my "wide -glide, Luxo-Tourer" machine. T

Then after about 219kms of riding my pace, I find myself nearing the next checkpoint in Cauayan, Isabela.

--> https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=S...t=h&mra=ls&z=9

Checkpoint # 2 was handled by a good friend and Touratech ride buddy Enteng Gonzales. Lots of well wishers, volunteers cleaning the helmet visor, giving water and bananas. Good Job guys!

Some pictures in Cauayan, Isabela.







That's Enteng on the right side....






Another friend in Cauayan, Isabela




Job well done! Kudos to all of you at Checkpoint # 2 ..... Mabuhay kayo!





"Ride The World".....

Magapit Bridge in Lalo, Cagayan

I breeze thru the 3rd checkpoint in Tugegarao.

---> https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=C...=10&via=1&z=10



It was about 5:45am when I passed. I was still hot to ride because it was only 105 kilomemeter since the last checkpoint, still warming up. After having my passport stamped and top up fuel..... it was time to go...




About 75kms away

--> https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=C...=10&via=1&z=10



I had to stop at the Magapit Bridge and do some photo ops because this was the first time I brought the scooter to the area. Wouldn't miss the chance to capture it with a pix. Besides, I had to upload to facebook so my followers would know my whereabouts too.



I was now on the halfway mark of the 1200kms Ironman Challenge on my scooter. Balintawak to Magapit about 602kms after at about 7am

--> https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=T...ia=1,2,3,4&z=8




Here's some pix I captured of that moment.....

Checkpoint #4 in Sanchez Mira, Cagayan province

The sun was finally up and I can callup my famliy to inform them to check and track me thru gsblue's WRU GPS Tracking and Navigation. No more worries for family and loved ones as well as other followers..... Thanks for the tracker WRU (gsblue)!



At 7:38am my loved ones tracked me here....




The next checkpoint was in Sanchez Mira, Cagayan province. From the last stop at the bridge to there was only 84kms.

--> https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=M...=h&mra=ls&z=10



Sanchez Mira Checkpoint # 4




Here I come.......






"Hello Checkpoint # 4! Please stamp my passport and top my fuel up sir!" Those were my opening remarks to them. Exchange a few chit chat with the the De La Cruz brothers, Onie, Egay, Bernie and the other sibling before......


I bid them farewell.....
