Sport-Cruising in the Philippines

2009 Annual Philippine Sport-Cruise Adventure

This year we had 9 bikes and 1 support car. ~1150 miles
over 6 days counter-clockwise around the island of Luzon.
Some beautiful roads and a few lousy ones, some very ordinary
hotels and a couple of ringers all added up to a great ride with
some great friends.

We started in Batangas, then over night in Clark, San Frenando,
Pagudpud, Cuayan, Banaue, Clark then Back home to Batangas.

December to February is the best time of the year to ride.
Not much rain with temps averaging in the 70's and 80's.


Some misc pics...fuzzy ones are with a phone camera... Enjoy!


The famous Patapat Coastal Bridge Northern most road in the Philippines, Beautiful riding day overcast with a cool breeze.



Mike hiding behind my GL at Cabanas hotel in San Frenando, La Union..



A stop in Ifugao Valley.



Pulling out of Banaue Hotel



Local transportation...the "tricycle"...A 125-150cc with a hand made side car. Watch out - they are everywhere.



Kiangan, Ifugao; A WWII shrine where Japanese Imperial Army General Tomoyuki Yamash_ta surrendered to American and Filipino forces.



What a country !



Some serious discussions...Bill, Gary, Peter, Larry, Dale, Mike, Dave, Mike, John and yours truly (behind the camera)

Yes, those photos bring back memories. While stationed there in the mid 60's, we rode our Honda 300's everywhere, The Honda 450 came available in 1966 and we thought that was the biggest fastest bike on the planet. Times have changed. Thanks for the photos.
