    Thank you for stopping by BikerMonkeyBlog.com and following! I love your “About” and can’t wait to read your stories my friend. Ride Safe. BikerMonkey

  2. Hi Doms, thanks for dropping by Traveling-up.com. It’s always nice to hear from fellow riders & it seems you’re from Bicol as well (my hometown is Naga City). Just checked out your Igorot on Board posts. I agree that it was really difficult to focus on driving on with the awesome landscape heading up Sagada. More power to your blog and stay safe on the road 🙂

  3. Hola, Doms, followed you for your unique About page! haha. Love the idea of hearing travel stories from a rider’s visor! Must be pretty darn close to the truth and the nitty-gritty of wherever you choose to go, eh?

    Thanks for dropping by my ambitious baby blog and your sunshiny words of encouragement!


    • I’m not much of a writer so please forgive me if I might not be able to fully relay the thrills of my adventures on my blog posts. I was a (lot) more of a rider than a writer after all. I promise I’ll do best. Cheers!

    hi! we are scheduled in Legaspi this coming July and we want to include the Cagraray island to our itenerary, sadly i can’t find someone who can tour us around without getting the day tour of Missibis. reading your blog gave me hope that it is possible. if it’s not too much to ask, do you know someone or a tour company who can give us a tour around the island? thank you so much in advance for your help.

    • I don’t see any way you are getting a day tour in Misibis except through them. It’s their resort after all. You can rent a van to see the Cagraray Ecopark and enjoy the scenery along the way. If you really want to enter the premises of Misibis Resort, according to the guard at the gate I spoke with, you have to pay P1000/head entrance fee. I hope you have a blast in Legazpi!

    My friend and i were planning to travel from manila to Batac, Ilocos Norte. we have our individual bikes, Honda wave 100 and CB110 (mine). Any tips or advice in terms of preparations? also while riding, is there any road hazards and safety measures we have take note or watch out for? (its our first time going up north)

    can you also tell the travel time? (including stop overs and refuel)

    Thanks in advance. 🙂

    btw, i read your North luzon loop adventure. nice one sir. Thumbs up!!!!

    • Hey Roy, I suggest you take a shorter 300-km ride with your buddy to get a feel of a long ride. Just prep your bike especially the tires, electrical wiring, brakes, and have it serviced by a trusted mechanic. You can only prepare for so much though so pack a lot of common sense, pray and trust your gut 😉 Enjoy the ride!
