Manila, Philippines. The Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association (MDPPA), the premier group of motorcycle manufacturers in the country, joined Motorsiklo Xklusibo’s eighth anniversary celebration at the Tagaytay International Convention Center late August.
Almost 16,000 riders from different regions joined the event titled “Great to be 8!” which doubled as a grand reunion of the radio program’s followers and motorcycle enthusiasts. All attendees enjoyed the motorcycle displays, games and freebies. Some booths offered discounts on different products. Event sponsors raffled off many big items, including a Honda CB150R, Kawasaki Avenger, Suzuki Raider R150 carb type, Suzuki Raider R150 FI, Yamaha FZi. Inside RACING pocket bike, Motorstar Xplorer Z200, PMR Origin and TVS Apache.
The MDPPA gave away freebies such as MDPPA arm bands to all motorcycle riders who visited their booth and joined their prepared activities. The association also seized the opportunity to advance its road safety campaign. Besides distributing free road safety manuals, the group encouraged riders to put the free stickers on their motorcycles or helmets to serve as a constant reminder to always wear the proper riding gear.
Motorsiklo Xklusibo host Edwin Go said that the event was made for everyone! The success of the event was a joint effort of all. “Mabuhay ang mga sponsors, manufacturers, dealers, marshals, traffic enforcers, police personnel who patrol the perimeters for peace and safety, and of course the riding community. Dito, naipakita natin na walang kulay, walang club, walang personalidad, iisa ang layunin, iisa ang gusto — kaligayahan, katatawanan, kainan, bilihan, biruan at maraming magandang gawain,” he added.
MDPPA and Motorsiklo Xklusibo have been partners for years in promoting road safety to everyone.
