Apparently when he’s not dishing out relationship advice on-air, John Gemperle, a.k.a. Papa Jackson, has been vlogging his motorcycle rides.
The 106.7 Energy FM disc jockey, who was formerly known as ‘Papa Jack’ when he was still with 90.7 Love Radio, has taken on a different kind of love through his YouTube channel—his love for bikes, to be exact.
As of this writing, Gemperle has already garnered 327,000 subscribers and 23.6 million total views. His uploads range from travel vlogs, song covers, question-and-answer sessions, as well as pranks and challenges. What caught our attention, though, is his comprehensive motorcycle-related content.
Just like in his radio shows, the TV personality-author’s motovlogs have various segments. He started his Me And My Bike Out There (MAMBOT) series in January last year, when he first spoke his mind while riding his Kawasaki Vulcan 650 S.
Gemperle explained: “We’re going to discuss topics, anything under the sun, while riding a motorcycle. Naniniwala kasi ako na lahat ng mga taong naka-helmet, nagsasalita mag-isa, ha ha! Naglilitanya ako habang naka-helmet, mainam pang i-upload ko na lang.”
Last February, Papa Jackson introduced Love Letters on the Road, where he did what he does best: gave advice to brokenhearted letter senders, only he does the love problem solving on two wheels.
“Medyo nagbabago tayo ng ginagawa sa ating vlogs ngayon. Gusto kong gawin to kasi I love riding motorcycles, and at the same time, daldal ako nang daldal habang nagra-ride, maybe eto na yung pag-usapan natin,” he explained in one of his vlogs.
Gemperle is also trying out bikes and testing their perfomance via the Common-Tao Moto-Review. Among the models that he has already taken for a spin are the KTM 390 Duke, Bristol Classic 400i and Bristol 650.
