Hooray! Another big event on the motorcycle world is about to happen this August. As the National Racing Association (NRA) is proud to introduce MOTOKHANA here in the country.

So what exactly is MOTOKHANA?

Its a multi-category, rider skills challenge wherein a competitor’s objective is to ride through a pre-designed course in the shortest time, and with as little error as possible.

So If you believe you’re a good a rider as you think you are, then MOTOKHANA is the event for you.

This latest activity from the National Racing Association (NRA) is set to make its debut on August 15, 2009 at the Liberty Center on Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong City.

Here are the Competition Classes:

1. Solo (Scooter)
2. Solo (Underbone)
3. Solo (Small Bike)
4. Team

Entry fee is Php1,000 only.

For more details simply logon at or call the National Racing Association at tel. no. 725 3949, mobile no. (0917) 820 2391.

What’s great about it is that any rider can join, as long as he or she has a license to ride (Restriction 1) and has a currently registered motorcycle. And lastly, of course you definitely have the guts and the skills to nail it! Hmmm…C’yah there!!!

UPDATES: As of 14 August 2009

Due to unforeseen events, the maiden staging of the MOTOKHANA, scheduled on August 15, 2009, at the Liberty Center in Mandaluyong City, has been postponed to September 19, 2009.

I want my MP3

I want my…I want my….I want my MP3! (to the tune of “Money for Nothing” by Dire Strait) However, there’s something diverse about this kind of mp3 to the mp3 that we’re all familiar with. You can’t download it (I wish i could hehe) or even play it on your MP3 player.

I’m talking about the awesome and revolutionary project of Piaggio – the Piaggio MP3. Its an innovative three wheeler scooter with two wheels on its front that can tilt to an amazing 40-degree lean angle, much greater and safer than most bikes on the street today. With a short practice, a newbie rider can utilize the MP3 just like an ordinary scooter. At the price a bit lower than 9 grand for the 400cc variant, it definitely will fall under my WISHLIST category and perhaps on my TWO-WHEELS also, even though its 3 haha!
