Jesus Erle Sebastian's "Menaces on Two Wheels" is totally out of line.
he surely got the attention of a lot of bikers. and sad to say it ain't generally nice.
mr sebastian is really making bikers and drivers not coexist properly on the road.
i thought your magazine is out to promote motoring and not start a fight with bikers.
man, if ever i get a picture of what you look like, i will post it at motorcyclephillipines.com so that the attention you are seeking will surely come to you
relax lang tayo
its just an opinion -- with very little tact -- but an opinion nonetheless. "let the man with no sin cast the first stone" ika nga.
lets not fuel one man's opinion to a general declaration of war shall we. I dont know yet the implications of his article or what other TG readers think about his article -- is it the truth maybe, is it repsonsible maybe not, was it done with tact - defenitely not, is it immorral --- maybe his little confession on seeing someone hurt skims between that aspect.
We made noise before - when Ford came out with their Lynnx Ad (the car weaving in and out of bikes) next thing you experience are this guys on Lynx's actually doing what was on the TV Ad...(go figure). Motorcyle Advocates of the Philippines (MAP) should act on this like it did with the Ford Ad anything that can promote further endangerment of our lives on the road should be taken seriously. Really the seriousness is not yet realized by the Vern and Erle --- but thats because they dont ride motorcycles (or do they).
The Federation both LMFI even the NATIONAL FEDERATION or the MPF should be writing love letters to the editor is my guess. so let the groups handle it properly. Picture posting wont help -- i'm sure TG Management thought tis out and this is what sells their magazine, i'm sure they didnt realize the negative effect it would have.
Being a car enthusiast myself --- this just lives a sour taste in my mouth. If you ask me --- nah wont pick the Mag ever again. but i'm .000000000000001 of their reader base that their advertisers are targetting - get a million more me's and advertisers start to take notice, their tone will change.
Poor John - he likes TG magazine and this is what he gets to read on perhaps what would be one of his favorite mags.
too late!, posted his pic na sa mcp at sa mcasia few days back! now all riders knows what his cute mug looks like.
