Adventure Addict is this you at Bantayan Island ?????? Cheers Toddy
That isn't me, but here is a picture of us arriving at Bantayan from Negros:
And in Negros before the hop to Bantayan:
I will get to Manila April fools day.... hahaha... for 5 weeks ....will spend time with Kandi... and have week after Easter open to 10 day of wander... short rides before that.... rented DR650 for whole stay.......
You're going to have a great time, Jeepsterman! Welcome to the forum!
Is there a commercial business that has DRs in the Philippines now? Even knowing of a private individual with a single DR for rent would be welcome news.
Plan is ferry to Calbayog Samar , Biri Island to girlfriends for Holy week , Check out Cantanduanes Island as a possible place for ADV Riders Get Together , Palawan then Bantayan Island till late Oct .
Here is the bike ride we done today from my town Te Anau to Milford Sound and back 120km each way of best ride and scenery in New Zealand . I know Herc would love to see these pics and he would say " I wish I could do some of the rides you do Toddy " If we have an ADV Rider Meet up we will have to dedicate it to Herc as he was real keen . This thread went very quite after we lost Herc and a lot of us were very sad . I had never met him personally but he gave me a lot of advice and I loved his pics and ride reports . If any of you guys are around where I will be let me know and we can have a beer . Ride Safe Toddy
Adventure Addict , where do you live in Cebu ?? would be great to meet you .
I have been looking through many of the posts here and it really make me "homesick".
Can not wait to get back to Phils and go touring again.. :)
I am in the area between Liloan and Compostela just north of Cebu city...
Would be great to meet you (or any of the ADV guys for that matter) anytime

I have been a lurker on this thread for quite sometime now, I dont understand why am I so affected by his passing though I dont know him in person, couldnt resist to sign up and post my condolences although its been long overdue. He will surely be missed by alot of philippine riders.

cheers and goodluck!
On your way back you can pass by Paranaque and have coffee at my place.
Time to keep us up to date on your ride Bro . When will you be around Leyte and Samar ?
Sorry if I haven't posted an update. I'm back in Laguna recuperating from the Visayas-Mindanao trip. I will do the North Luzon this weekend. Thank you guys for the coffee but this would be somewhat an endurance ride as I have to be back to work by Monday. Here are some of the pictures during my 7-day trip:
Molo Church in Iloilo
The Ruins in Bacolod
It was my birthday and the last RORO (ferry) for Dapitan left just 10 minutes before I got to the Port of Dumaguete. I was too cheap to get a room so I spent the night in the port's passenger terminal.
I got the first ferry trip off Negros Island to Mindanao the following day. There were a lot of (big) bikes in Dapitan since the 20th Annual Motorcycle Convention is a day away. I made my way down to Ilagan via the coastal roads of Oroquieta then took a short ferry trip in Ozamis City.
Maria Cristina Falls
it was only 3PM but the route I am about to take is 'HOSTILE' and 'CRITICAL' so I have to wait the following morning to proceed. That's when I got extra time and was able to get my hands on a keyboard, hence my first post about this trip..
The following morning, my target was Cotabato City via Marawi City.
a lot of rough roads but I made it out in one piece. There were also military checkpoints every 10-20 kms but even they still precaution against traveling these parts alone.
I was asked to remove my helmet when I got to Cotabato City. I obliged but as soon as I made the first turn, I put it back on. I was like "You guys have any idea what the ADVers will say about ATGATT!"
The Grand Mosque
oh, it comes in PINK too??
I was feeling great about my progress I blew past Cotabato City and headed for General Santos City
I was still feeling great when I got to GenSan that I decided, "Why not ride some more?" so I made it to Davao City by 10PM
Glad you made it safely back. Can't view the pics from the office
thanks for sharing
