        When he isn’t shooting hoops or a TV drama, Xian Lim is busy pursuing his passion for motorcycles. And just like with anything he does, the actor-basketball player conducts himself well on the track.

        Riding coach Sam Tamayo can attest to this. The LTO-accredited instructor from Mx Messiah Fairgrounds (MMF) Academy only has good words for Lim, who, despite being a “beginner” in terms of riding skill, is very professional and eager to learn.

        “We trained yesterday—some night riding and riding on wet surfaces,” Tamayo shared.

        Lim recalled in one of Coach Tamayo’s vlogs: “Parang ang mga pinag-aaralan pa natin nun is clutch lang talaga eh no. Yung kagat ng clutch, basically thats it. Ta’s going around in circles, figure eights, yun lang talaga. Tumagal din naman ako dito...12 and up sessions. I got to learn.

        The Fil-Am revealed that undergoing training also proved useful in his acting career when he was faced with a role that required him to ride a motorcycle. 

        “Had I not taken that, kamot ulo,” he said.
