Time flies, ambilis naka one year na pala yung MTV ko haha! This coincide din to my first ever solo long ride to Baguio. Kaputukan nuon ng kantang “Hayaan mo sila” by the notorious pinoy rap group Ex-Battalion, kaya yun sila ang naisipan kong gayahin, nag-enjoy naman ako kase talaga namang hilig ko din mga rap music 😀
History repeats itself as me and my childhood friend Romel De Vera was at the same place 30 years ago, sitting on a BMX (this time its original and sad to say it’s not ours haha, thanks Kuya Alvin!) as we spend an afternoon at the back of Folk Arts Theater together with the 80’s BMXers FB group in celebration of World BMX Day 2017.
It was an awesome afternoon as guys whose ages were more or less the same like us were all over the place, biking, freestylin, hitting the ramp, making selfies and groupies, or simply chit-chatting with one another while reminiscing the past. Nakita ko din dun mga idol ko sa ramp at mga nakakarera namin sa Jammin Jay at sa Philcite nung araw haha!
Good thing our client/ride buddy Kuya Alvin invited us to attend the event, ok lang daw kahit wala kaming BMX, at least daw eh magkitakita at magka bonding ulit kami.
I was surprise that I could still able to do the Infinity Roll, yun nga lang nung pinaulit sa akin para ma videohan eh wala na sablay na kase hilo na ako haha! Unlike the two young flatlanders from Mariveles, Bataan na nandun din sa place exhibiting their amazing spinning talent on BMX, wala silang mga hilo hehe!
Can’t wait for the 2018 celebration haha!
Watch my video and see the radness and awesomeness that day!
Got my latest accessories for my bike Rusty last week. Its called a Sissy bar, built mainly for the backrider para me masandalan. I told the welder to use stainless steel and make it long. Why? Because I’ve got this idea during our last ride na walang malagyan ng extra bag namin ng kaangkas ko, I had to plea to one of the single riders to gave my bag a lift haha! Kaya eto naging design ko, its long para pwedeng itali yung bag sa sissy bar while it sits on my Givi Box, good thing the builder easily understands it and just continue building it, tapos mura pa sumingil, I told myself, its a great deal here! I will surely come back here pag me new and crazy ideas na naman ako na ipagagawa ko.
Dinagdagan ko pa ng big rope for that rat look and para comfy din sa sasandal dito, and since wala pa kami long ride after I’ve got the sissy bar, I’ve already proven it’s worthyness during pamamalengke at yung me extra akong dala na naka plastic o extra bag, tinatali ko na lang sya dun, lagayan ng helmet pede rin hehe.
