Motoworld Philippines in partnership with Metzeler Motorcycle Tyres, Yamaha Motor Philippines, Imprint Customs and Forged Philippines invited select motorcycle enthusiasts, vloggers and media outfits that will face this year’s 2019 Metzeler Lahar Experience last April 17, 2019 at Angeles City, Pampanga.
These special guests get an exclusive sneak peak at the parts of the route and some of the activities the participants will undergo the Lahar Challenge.
Using Yamaha XTZs installed with Metzeler MC360 Off-Road tires as their steeds for the day, the participants’ riding skills were put to test as they have learned new ways on how to maneuver the motorcycles across the unpredictable lahar, while others experienced the rough, beautiful lahar landscape by taking a special tour in a 4×4 vehicle. The special route took everyone through Sapang Bato, hot springs, streams and other points of interest in the lahar area. Participants were also challenged with exciting games such as the Fastest Lap Tandem Ride and Forged Fire Starting Challenge. With the use of Morakniv’s Eldris Neck Knife Kit of Forged Philippines, the participants even learned how to start fire – one of the most basic outdoor survival skills.
