In getting scooter, safety must always be the first priority to get those road load of fun. Be prepared always and know how to overcome those adversities along the way.

The purpose why hubby got a scooter is for him to get ASAP to his work, avoiding those traffic which is just near to our residential place.

Since it is also along Technopark in Laguna, sometimes transportation become on schedule and taking a ride would take into special transport price which is much higher.

It was lately we discovered some benefits – that is, thrift way to commute compared in bringing car.   One can run the daily errands that would burn less fuel and saving money in return.

Best part, easy to park. This can be slipped in between of parked cars.

There were also times we use the scooter for road trips like taking quick dip in the hot spring in Calamba or going to Nuvali in Sta. Rosa – all in Laguna.

Here were some practical tips I learned also taking those scooter road trips with hubby:

  • Check always motorbike’s condition.

  • Hydrate yourself with lot of water to drink before the ride.
  • Check easy route and gas stops around thru road apps like Google map.
