    This 4 island ride was quite a ways for my 08 TXC250 Husqvarna ....About 1200 miles total, much on the pavement, so I saved my bike by staying at about the 6G RPM mark when on the hard top ...


    We were lucky enough to have a ro-ro boat from Cebu to Leyte just up the road from Danao City where we live... It was a very small port area ...

    We had a flat and had to stop by a shop to get a tube ... The local cops had issues also ... One was pulling the other due to a broke throttle cable ....

    We found some very big lava flows on this beach area ... The cloud formations here are very cool also ... And they change from minute to minute almost and morph into another breath taking view ..
