    Noob to adv riding but long time rider on different variations of bikes.

    Recently swapped out my Piaggio MP3 400 for a pre loved BMW F650GS.
    Ztechnik Vstream screen finally arrived yesterday and installed, albeit painfully, right away.

    Hoping to take it on a shake down ride tom to Real, Quezon with some Vespa peeps.

    We're set to do a Mt. Data ride via Aritao/Mt. Pulag route next week, any idea how the roads to Abatan via Pulag is?

    Hope to meet more of you guys on the road/trails/beach soon!

    Your Vee is looking good in a dirty-girl way, Herc! Ridden hard and put away wet (and muddy) ! :lol3

    I'm looking forward to seeing you by this weekend, in Manila. For this trip, I'm making plans to ride to Banaue, Sagada and points north on a Transalp. Will probably fit Baguio, Vigan and Pagudpud into the itinerary. I'll be interested in knowing where your water crossings were, so there is a chance of avoiding them. :rofl(Actually that looked fun!)
