Philippines. It’s a lifestyle for some, a hobby for many and a way of living
for most of the folks. Who would not love the comfort and convenience
motorcycle gives to commuters? Aside from you getting away easily from
traffic jams in the metro there is joy and convenience when you ride a
motorcycle especially during road trips in the country side. My friend and I rode a motorcycle from Quezon City to
Infanta, Quezon Province then back. A 130km ride one way! I was riding on my friend’s
motorcycle thus I had the luxury of sightseeing. Riding a big bike is another
way of great travel adventure.

to wear pants and jacket – it did not burned my skin. 5.
