Sunrise ride with the Sunset Riders... Makes sense?... Didn't think so...

Monday, November 24, 2008

The morning after bombing the town with the NOS Boys, I went on a ride to Tagaytay with my officemates. Now THAT'S a teambuilding event! Too bad we're from different teams.

I Met up with Jovs, Joveth, and EJ at Jollibee Madrigal at 4am. Then rode off to meet Karl at SM Molino at 5am. A bit of a ways further we met up with Emgrey and Grace.

Somwhere in Cavite, Emgrey got a flat, so we had to find a vulcanizer guy who's up at 6am. Well we found the guy and he was happy to oblige. WHile waiting we took the opportunity to take a few pics.

Early morning bike bling!

This is us finally finding a vulcanizing shop. Next task: Wake the guy up.

Of course a few group pics.

This is me asking Emgrey if everything's ok. And now that that's done, we sped off to Mahogany Market for some Bulalo. It was too dark inside the Mahogany Maket to take pics cause it wasn't well lit. So no pics.

Fast forward to Mushroom Burger. Heard so much about this place. Had to take pics.

I really don't get the "frostbite" poses, guys.

Emgrey's attempts at an artistic shot. The model looks high.

After that we headed out to the restos near Taal to take a gander at this ol' beaut... And to take more pics of course.

The Teriyaki Boy mascot has got to be THE most unfriendly looking mascot ever! He's got that "GETAWAYFROMME!" look on his face.

By the power of... Emgrey?!?!?

NOS Boys Saturday Night Bombing Run

Sunday, November 23, 2008

Ok, little story first. On the way home Friday night, my headlamp went out. I was bummed. Went to Gil's The following day to have it looked at. Turns out the Bulb's busted. Gotta fork over some cash for a new one. Which leads us to a new problem. The headlamp assembly's pretty tight, so we(Gil, Jon, Pablo, Edward) couldn't figure out how to openi it without smashing it. However, I NEEDED a headlamp bad, so Gil ripped out a foglamp from a nearby truck, and slapped it onto my bike.

Here's Gil helping with the "calibration".

As you can see, the "wiring" is really truly "intricate".

Anyway, fast forward to 7pm. Gil and I were waiting for Jon, a newbie to arrive. Edwin's already with us and was simply warming his engine up. Jon shows up at 7pm on the dot, apologizing, and blaming Saturday night traffic. So we head out to Jolilbee, to meet up with Ed, Cicero, and Jauhn who's coming from work.
Gil's Honda Steed, and my Yamaha Dragstar.
Jon's Honda "CB550-engine-in-a-CB750-frame" custom bike, and Edwin's Honda Steed.

All in a row.

Turns out, Ed's at a carshow in SM MOA, and Cicero can't make it. So the minute Jauhn came over, from work, we sped off to Macapagal, taking the quickest "cop-free" route to meet up with Ed.
Gil decided to do a quick "round-the-mall" run. Great idea. After scaring random children, and setting off car alarms with the roar of our engines, we decided to hang out at Cafe de Lipa in Petron. Turns out Gil frequents the joint to work his magic on a young waitress who works there. The fun never stops for Gil. Hehehehe.

Ah, there you go, better lighting...

Another angle...


Yes, our bikes are cam whores.

Meh. Shaky hands give a bit of a hazy effect.

I finally hung out with the NOS boys again. It's been so long. Plus I REALLY needed this rideout.

It's Julio - F*cking - Valiente, bitches!

Ladies gentlemen...

The legendary...

The indestructible...

The ridiculous...

Julio Valiente!

He's so hardcore, physics doesn't apply to him. Gravity is but a mere myth to him!

And yes, I know it's a catchy tune. So in case you're in the mood to embarass yourselves, here are the lyrics!

julio valiente!
julio valiente! 2x

ito ang kasaysayan na nangyari noon
aming naaalala mapahanggang ngaun
ang bayang san basilio kahit na kay liit
bawat dampa'y may taong sadyang mababait

julio valiente! 3x
valiente valiente aaaaahhhh

ngunit saang mangdako may ahas din pala
mga taksil na taong mapagsamantala
isang julio valiente sadyang mapagmahal
ang nagtanggol sa bayan tuwing may mangangamkam

julio valiente makisig matapang
sanay sa pag gamit ng gulok at punyal
sya'y tunay na bayaning mahirap makalaban
at kahit sa baril man mahusay ang kamay

maging ang kalaban ay napakarami
wala ring panalo at hindi mag wawagi
hanggang may san basilio ay may isang valiente
nagtatanggol sa bayan kung may umaapi

julio valiente! 3x
valiente valiente aaaaahhhh

Hell yea.

No, not the Ultimate Warrior! That would totally own though.Ü

I saw a Yamaha Star Warrior.

A 1700cc beast of a bike. I wonder who it belonged to...

My father passed away on October 24, at 11:45pm. He died in his sleep. It was caused by a heart attack according to the attending physician.

So I've been very busy taking care of family matters.

Don't worry dad... I'll take it from here... I'll make you proud...
