Transportation/motorcyle in Philippines

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I've been back in Philippines and will be spending way more time here from now on. I decided to buy a small motorcycle and have been riding it over the past week. Wow it is definitely an eye opener riding here and can see it will take awhile to truly figure out all the "cultural" differences in sharing the road. 

I ended up buying a brand new 2018 Honda CB 150R streetfire. It was only a little over PhP96,000 (around $1800 US dollars). It does fine even with me and my wife on it. It was a fairly easy task to purchase the bike but I needed the family to help with temp registration and things like that. They all have motorcycles so we go everywhere together so I'm not alone yet, lol. 

 

Anyways, just thought I'd share.

Yup, first time I was there in 2011, I road a friends little motor bike around and realized quickly just honk a lot haha.

We are supposed to be loaned a car this next trip in April  I believe so that will be interesting.

Good you were able to get it registered so quickly.  Getting your own wheels is the only way to go in the Philippines, it gives you freedom. 

 

At your location what are the rules on riding motorbike?  Used to be no helmets were needed, but it seems as if they enforce that rule, at least in Davao City area.

I laughed when I read "honk a lot". Everyone honks their horn every 30 seconds and no one pays attention!...hahahaha

It's true...and your right pretty silly since you never know who is being honked at or who is honking! In the us people get upset if they are honked at, lol. I just honked at animals and people on side of road who didn't seem to be paying attention.
