I love riding motorbikes. Once in the Philippines, fed up with public transport I decided to get my driver’s license for a motor. A longtime dream of mine.
I started out on a Yamaha ZS 150 and outgrew that bike pretty fast realizing I needed something bigger to maintain my safety riding in the road rage in the Philippines.
The bigger bike, a Kawasaki Dominar 400 came with more respect from other drivers. More power and more safety.
Highlights from the trips through the Philippines are:
- The Bicol old Zag-Zag Route
- The San Juanico Bridge
- Devils Mountains on Mindoro
- The Tagaytay Area round Lake Taal
- The island of Siquijor
- Samar and Leyte
- And Riding the coastal road on Bohol.
But there are plenty more great roads and amazing views I passed riding the Philippines. I did several short trips and one 8 months long trip with all my luggage on the bike. It was epic!

The videos of the many road trips through the Philippines, mostly together with my son are on the Leaving Holland YouTube Channel. You will see some pretty ugly road rage, some awesome landscapes, and some amazing roads we drive there. And the cities we passed through. I think the best memory was the Ashes bursting from Mount Mayon while passing there, that was an unforgettable moment. That I did get on camera while driving.
Don’t forget to subscribe to the YouTube Channel, at the moment I am on a road trip in Mexico riding a BMW G 310 GS

For Mexico, the road trip started in January 2021 when I decided the buy a BMW G 310 GS, the perfect bike for on and off-road here in Mexico.
All materials have arrived, even those arriving from the USA and we ride!
