Kymco 1st ever Media Fun Ride to the Bicol Region

An hour after sunrise, the day started at the Kymco Plant in Taguig City and the inclement weather condition did not hamper the 1st Kymco ride. Eight media personalities were invited together with the members of the Kymco Xciting Club for an amazing fun ride to the Bicol Region, riding on the finest Kymco scooter models available in the local market. This road trip was by buddy system and this writer was paired with Edward Dangan Jr. of Wheels magazine and on day one we were assigned to the latest Kymco model, the Racing King 180 ABS. Travel time from Taguig City to Turbina in Calamba Laguna was just under an hour passing through the service road and about an hour more of waiting for Manong (Andy Rodriguez) and Manang (Novelyn Quiamco) of 2NER magazine since they were not that familiar with the area but after lunch in San Pablo City Laguna, it was time to test the Kymco Racing King 180 ABS capabilities. It could exceed legal tollways speed limits effortlessly and on wet road surface, the ABS surely was an advantage with nail pounding power. Nightfall came as we reached the Sta. Rita Resort and on our way we had to pass through a half a kilometer of muddy road and all Kymco scooters made it, safely. With all day and night of traveling and after dinner, it was time to hit the sack.
On day two, we were assigned to the Kymco Super Z 125 and the torque response was not so bad, coming from an 180cc scooter, one thing for sure, ABS was not available and the seat was surely, firm. Good thing this writer decided to strap the ever dependable back pack on the seat, as a backrest. After half a day of travel, we reached our home away from home and we were welcomed at Casa Basilisa in Albay. After lunch we headed to Albay ATV Adventure, here we parked our assigned scooters and switched to the Kymco MXU 150 ATV to head towards the area of Mt. Mayon for some activities and on our way up, the ATVs were the best vehicle to use through several river crossings and mountain trails. As the sun set for the day, we had some fellowship back at our resort, for all participants to unwind till the early morning.
On day three, for some participants, it was for more sightseeing and most participants opted for the much needed rest, in preparation for the long travel back to Taguig City and finally, home.
Thank you super much to Kymco Philippines, for being part of the 1st Kymco Media Fun Ride from Taguig City to Daraga Albay in the Bicol Region; it was most certainly an experience, never to forget.
