The Vespa Club of the Philippines (VCOP) recently invited the content creator and his YouTube team to the first-ever Tikoy Ride, which was co-organized by motorcycle club Binondo Wasps. Riders from the Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau also guided the scooter enthusiasts as they traveled around the city.
Before and after the group ride, Reyes indulged his ‘inaanaks’ with selfies and even interacted with some of them. One actually printed Ninong Ry stickers so he had something to give away.
The Internet celebrity also got the chance to check out rare scoots like a 1955 Lambretta, Vespa LXV150, and PX150, whose side mirror he accidentally hit while riding.
“Sir, kamusta yung side mirror mo? Baka kapresyo na ng motor ko yung side mirror mo? Wala bang damage? Pasensya na. Ang ganda naman ng motor mo, sir,” Reyes can be heard telling the owner, who seemed to be content with being included in the vlog.
Sweaty but satisfied with the experience, Ninong Ry ended the vlog saying: “Uwi na kami, nag-enjoy kami. Maraming-maraming salamat sa Binondo Wasps and Vespa Club of the Philippines. Di ko alam bakit niyo kami sinali, manggugulo lang naman kami sa inyo, tsaka manghihingi ng mga bagay-bagay.”
