Partakan “Ride and Rock” Fest



If there is one event that motorcycle enthusiasts  need to block off their calendars, it should better be the  Partakan’s “Ride and Rock” Themed Festival.



Partakan is an Ilocano term for “speed” and this festivity takes place every summer.

Last April 2014, ROPALI MOTORCYCLES sponsored the festivity at the Pozo Robo Beach Resort in Sta Ana, Cagayan. True to the theme, the event was not just a showcase of speed, but also a showdown of rock bands as well. We were entertained by bands like Sandwich, 6 Cycle Minds, Pedi Cab, Banda ni Kleggy,  The Chongkeys, Epic Band and lot more, from morning until the next day.

Games and raffle draws were held among for motorcycle clubbers, wherein the grand prize of PhP 60 thousand was won by the motorcycle club from Taguig. Four motorcycles were also raffled off.

Truly, this is one experience of riding up north and if you are fortunate enough, you can even bring home a brand new motorcycle.

Mr. Aldous Alingog, General Manager of ROPALI MOTORCYCLES is confident that its fans can look forward to an event at a much bigger scale next year.

    The Side Tripper

    “Make sure you don’t take any side trips,” warns Schumler, from a phrase in the 1993 American film Swing Kids. If you are someone who does not have time to lose, then it is better for you to stick to your main agenda, because there is something about side tripping that submerges the soul in experiences that sometimes make you hope that time would stand still, as the experiences they bring can be more impactful than the main trip itself. It is that free flowing agenda, an unexpected sleepover or a detour that has unintentionally brought pleasant surprises. You can live without it, like you can eat a cake without its icing, but your journey may not be as meaningful. If travel is the ‘best medicine for the heart’,* then for me, side trips are secret ingredients to the most memorable travels and other events that can happen in between or off the main route of one’s itineraries. Welcome to Side Tripper, a collection of photographs and blogs about the many side trip adventures of our family and friends. *Source: The Global Commission on Aging and Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, in partnership with the U.S. Travel Association (Los Angeles Times, December 17, 2013 by Chris Erskine)
