This is my weekend ride to Tagaytay with a z650 buddy. It was a great and surprising experience for me as I really hate going to the said destination due to its notorious traffic and travel time.

Tagaytay is in the Province of Batanggas situated in South area of the Metro. About 60kms away. The fastest and most efficient way is to use SLEX (south Luzon Expressway). Our overall travel time from Pasig Area to Tagaytay using motorcycle is roughly an hour which is a big surprise to myself. I definitely recommend this as a travel destination for riders out there.

Enjoy and be safe riding.

PS - some minor issues happened on our way back. Good thing is this kamote guy helped me. I know lots of people hate kamote (squid) rider on the road as they are not safe rider nor safe to themselves (no safety gears), but this proves that they are the real person who has genuine concern to others. Salamat uli sa tumulong saken. And YES I KNOW, I wrongly picked up my bike. My back and leg are fine, sored for few days but all good thing nothing serious happen (injury).

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Watch me on my motovlog at least twice a week to show you my transition and my survival on this worsening traffic situation in Metro Manila. And now becoming my advocacy to use scooter as a traffic solution to help our country move forward. From a NO EXPERIENCE at all in any motorcycle riding before to an advocate for daily commuting. Go thru my channel and watch my newbie videos from when a bought a unit and my daily journey to show you the daily situation and advantages/disadvantages of it.

I got (jan2017) - Like Italia125 (sold), Vespa and Cafe400 (sold) motorcycle. Now i have a new Kawasaki z650.

This is my advocacy channel to to encourage everyone to join scooter pack. This is a regular episode on my channel to show the different destination in the metro using scooter. This will give you idea of the traffic and time savings youll get from using a scooter in the city.

      Hahaha bago ka magcomment siguraduhin mo munang may motor ka bata...isipin mo nalang dn kung lahat ng motorista e pinili nalang ang kotse edi mas lumala traffic sa pinas...wala namang masama mag counter flow or lane splitting basta walang naargabyado...ang motor ginawa para sa mabilisan na usad alangan pumila kapa sa traffuc kung may pwede naman singitan at wala naman maargabyado unggoy

      Rami car riders ang kala kamote lahat ng riders. We should change that mindset. Again some riders are previous car rider switching to bike to ease out the traffic in the metro. its in fact my advocacy in my channel. So give respect to us as we give you a favor in lesser car on the road. All we need is little space than the space your suv is occupying on our public road

      Sensya na sir. Hindi naman cguro yan pasaway. Whats important is to do it safely. Any non bike rider wouldn't understand. Kaya po kami nakamotor ay para makaiwas at mapabilis byahe sa traffic. but of course at a safe and with respect to others. Kung pipila kami na parang kotse edi sana un suv na lang dinala namen diba gaya ng lahat. If you notice no one gets offended because we are respectful and courteous. So again, no offense to you sir but i can assure you kaya mas maluwag ang traffic at some point ay dahil sa sakripisyo ng ibang tao para mag motor na lang at makatulong umusad tayo. I tell you I would rather be in the convenience of a car. Respect is important at di garapal...

      Pag ginamit naman nya left hand to fix his visor mamatayan din sya ng makina, most probably same result. Neutral siguro then use left hand to fix the visor, that's much better but still he is safe, not a major incident.. Shit happens ika nga.

      You drive way too close to the back of other cars. You lane split too fast. You take far too many unnecessary risks, in which you're relying on the other drivers to drive well. Take responsibility for your own riding and your own safety.

      If that truck in front of you (that you *can't see around* ) brakes hard, you're gonna go into the back of it.

      Those gaps you try and squeeze through... If those vehicles ( *that you can't see through* ) make a quick change, you'll get crushed.

      Ride safe. Ride smart. And please take a riding/safety course. I can tell you're a good guy, that's why I'm saying this.

      I'm enjoying my Z650 in Thailand. Hope you're having fun there in Philippines.

      I ride here in the Philippines and a defensive style is needed. I scan the road constantly and assess the risks and assume that every driver will do the unexpected. I think that’s the safest way to handle the roads here. Oh and keep an eye out for dogs at all times. Stay safe

      city lights In reply to city lights

      Hey man, glad you replied.

      I'm British, and live in Bangkok. I have adapted well to both the big city and to rural Thai roads. And my riding style is defensive.

      That means, I'm *always* creating space between myself and other vehicles, which often means slowing down. ANd I assume every vehicle is a drunken madman (which they often are).

      I try to live by this quote "in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king". Whereby, I try to be the person on the road who is *thinking hard about safety* amidst 1000s of drivers/riders who are not.

      I think the worst thing you can do is to "Drive like everyone else. Drive like a Thai. Drive like a Filipino.... Drive like a local" no, no, no!!! The best thing to do is watch a good safety channel like MCRider *awesome!* and become the safest rider on the road.

      Safe travels buddy!

      Hey thanks for the feedback. Well video footage can be deceiving but thanks for the advice as well, il take it as i see the concern. You from Thailand? But yes its almost the same in here for riding culture. There are ways to get behavior of drivers and cars, all you need is to anticipate all and assess the risk property, its a cultural thing from riders and drivers (but im no expert) and I take advice from others. It may seems scary to others (western) that im relying on them to drive properly but its completely the opposite - all riders on the road are treated stupid and i need to be defensive always in every essence of riding. I think im doing fine so far for the past year im riding here in Manila. My lil accident is a newbie mistake in handling a bigbike and not on riding style (though your truck concern is valid - me stupid there). If you can ride here, then im sure youll know what i mean and adopt quickly. And yes i have attended safety riding seminar. Western wouldnt understand until they get here. We have lots of western riders (motovlogger) as well you can check them out as they have adapted as well to Manila riding. Ride safe buddy...
