    Bringing any motorbike into the Philippines will mean you have to pay import duty ....

    This is not what
    - You think the bike is worth
    - You can prove the bike is worth i.e. similar bikes advertised

    But
    - On what Bureau of Customs decides the bike is worth.

    And when you leave the country this is not refunded !!!

    Please visit / hire a bike in the Ph - but do not import your own.

    thank you for this info, we won't be riding the philipines then, just looking at possible routes for a RTW.

    I bought my bike off this website, excellent experience. Easy to search, filter and mostly serious sellers. Facebook Marketplace is ok also but I find most ads lacking details/good photos and many sellers are flaky/unknowledgeable.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm interested in buying a CRF250 Rally or a CRF250L, maybe a Yamaha TT250, used or new when I get there this coming January.

    If you see something that's a good deal, please let me know.

    Joel,
    If you are living in Luzon - get a 400+ else you can not use the expressways. I do not think there are such things in Cebu/South .... but on Luzon - this makes a huge difference in doing 200 kms quickly - oh my wife complains at the cost ... Err $4 from Manila to Clark in toll fees. Instead of the stop-start-brake-clutch workout you get when riding on here.

    Just my 2p/2c/0.02Eu

    hello Gary.

    hahaha...the world just getting smaller.

    i have no schedule but have to be in Manila by mid-February for a h.s. class reunion.

    if i decided to go south, i want that beer.

    let's stay in touch via pm

    thanks

    hello Tim. thanks for the advice.

    i enjoy taking the back roads and off beaten path, so it has to be an enduro or dual-sport bike with at least a 19" front. i haven't seen a mid-sized thumper at that displacement unless Honda start selling the CFR450L there in the P.I.

    hopefully, i could find a big thumper in the used bike market.

    I'll help you find a bike before you arrive here @NSFW. I will PM you the details once I see one. Not promising anything as my plate is full but I will keep this mind. Honda ADV rally 250 cost about 249k brandnew without panniers.
