    Aside from YMPH, various motorcycle distributors, clubs, and associations also participated in the event.

    In an interview, Acuesta shared that the company joined the activity to express its support to the tourism department’s thrust “in reviving the interest on the nation’s most beautiful wonders.”

    “The pandemic and lockdowns hit these places hard, and we wanted to be part of bringing back life to these areas by showing our fellow Filipinos that these places are ready to welcome them once again,” he told Carmudi Philippines.

    Further, Acuesta said that the event helped them enjoy the exhilarating experience of riding a motorcycle — especially in a group — while going to various scenic spots in the country.

    “There are so many places to go and destinations to discover. I hope riders who haven’t had the chance to go out and ride again will be able to do so soon and enjoy every second of it. We must also be responsible in cultivating these tourist spots because this is the signature of culture — one we can share with each other and to the rest of the world.”
