Check this out! This is unbelievable! How would you like it, if there was a ban on all bikes under 400cc's, you were NOT allowed to ride on the highways, you were NOT allowed to wear a full face helmet, you were NOT allowed to have a passenger, god, I would hate to see what would happen if you started stunting around there!

From the article...

"In recent months it has been realized that because motorcycles are the only vehicles that can slip through the chaotic, lawless mess of Manila traffic criminals are using them as getaway vehicles. To try to combat this, one counsellor decided to introduce a no backride law (no passengers on motorcycles). Another decided that because these criminals are hard to recognize when wearing full face helmets he would introduce a ban of full face helmets while another said everyone passing through their part of the city must register their helmets! Lastly a senator decided he would introduce a law that all motorcyclists must paint their name and plate number on their helmet!"

great. sounds like their president might be related to ours.

I wnet to the phillipines a few years ago on a missions trip. Fed children in catbalogan (on samar). Helped to build a playground at an orphanage. It wouldn't be my first choice but outside of manila the people were super nice and hospitable. The food wasn't bad at all either

The filipino family I knew/know would have all the people over from their Kuntaw school (martial arts gym) and they'd cook all kinds of stuff and way more than you could eat. Food was half spanish half asian given the islands former conquerors, good combo.
