BritishBiker has lost his dear old dog, a 13 year old Border Collie who he brought here with him from the UK when he emigrated.
Liberty Narcissus Bells AKA 'Pup', 'Splick', 'Gibbon', 'Pupletaire' and more.
Born at 0348hrs on November 26th 2005 in England, UK
Died at 1900hrs December 4th 2018 in Philippines
The old girl had a good life both here in the Philippines and in United Kingdom. BB is happy that she is running across the clifftops again.
She is buried on LittleLeg's brother's farm underneath a huge mango tree.

BritishBiker is on driving duty again taking a car load of mothers and kids to another provincial school competition. There was nowhere to park so he drove more than 10km to find a shaded spot under some trees to wait, and then chats to you.
BB explains how he met his wife, LittleLeg, and how they went about building their life together. He also talks more about the new family hooptie, their old Toyota Revo and how brilliant it is proving to be!
BB spots a wiry old farmer watering his seedlings in a nearby field.
Finally at the end he admits the truth of how BB and LL actually met. It ain't pretty!
I hope you like the new logo, painted by a local artist, Sir Jun Cabilao

*Editor's note: For a few days I have been trying to recall how many gears my old Sportster had, I said 5 in the video but I have a nagging feeling that I was wrong.....maybe 4? I can't remember. Didn't matter much I guess as the gearbox shattered several times anyway. Oh crikey now I am thinking it also had chain drive. Getting it confused with my old FXR sorry about that 6th December 2018

It's the first major shopping trip in the BB family's new hooptie, an old Toyota Revo they call the Joy-Liner. They wish you a Merry Christmas and then proceed to fight over food in a Greenwich restaurant. BB talks about his dying dog, his sideline job in Manila Docks and gets lascivious over the waitresses.
NB: The camera angle at times only reveals half of BB's face, and that has to be a good thing!

Join the BritishBiker family for breakfast. The old man talks about his dying dog, ICE agents, the French vs Philippines education systems and more while LittleLeg reviews Baba on some upcoming exams. Mackerel balls anyone?

BritishBiker and LittleLeg take a motovlog ride on 'The Wimp', their Yamaha XT250 Serow to accomplish some tasks and BB gets to describe his expat experience here in the Philippines. BB sees it like this: Wonderment, Resistance and finally, Acceptance, but admits that all three states can exist concurrently!
BB also briefly discusses Bebots Only, a channel that was recently closed down and the creator arrested on some serious charges involving underage children. How come YouTube allowed this to go on for so long?
Lastly, there is a surprise waiting at the end.......a local artist has painted a new picture for BB which he will use as his Channel icon.

BritishBiker is up super early to take his family and friends to another Provincial school competition, this time at Adventist University of the Philippines in Silang, Cavite. The Joy-Liner (their old Toyota Revo) is having some issues but they get there in good time.
Once there BB gets bored and chats about a couple of YouTube channels that some have labelled as 'Hate Channels', Riff Raff Radio 2Wtf and the Pinoy Troll. BB does not feel that this is justified.
On the way home BB and crew stop at Santii's Delicatessen to buy some really smelly cheese, a nice round of Stilton in time for the old guy's birthday.

BritishBiker and LittleLeg take a ride in their 1999 Toyota Revo 1.8 manual which they have named the 'Joy-Liner'. BB road tests this car and finds plenty of reasons why these cars were, and still are, so popular in South-East Asia. Long Live the Asian Utility Vehicle or AUV!

Seats ten and the versatile design allows for a massive cargo area even able to carry a Honda Wave scooter in the back! Rugged construction copes with pot-holed roads and dirt with good ground clearance. Durable, robust, simple and easy to use. The engine is high torque and the gearing is low to pull loads up mountains and on muddy tracks. Good ground clearance and rear wheel drive assist here. Parts are still plentiful and cheap. And all while providing a comfortable car-like ride for the passengers.

Fuel consumption on this manual model is not outrageous but a diesel would use less fuel. Keep in mind though the many disadvantages with diesel, the ultimate cost equation is quite complex, plus there are are an increasing number of smoke belching units nationwide and they can make a brand new diesel engine smoke if there is a whiff of money in it for them.

The BritishBiker family head off to a Provincial MLSP inter-school English competition in Trece Martires City, Cavite. Months of hard work, effort and hope come to nothing and leave Baba completely deflated. But it's OK, the fact she tried her very best and gave it everything is what really counts and what earned her some nice rewards. BB thinks that 'Declamations' are a bit silly anyway and probably not Baba's strongest suit, the judges tending to favour those performers who over-dramatise the piece without due regard for context. It's all about the drama.
We had a nice drive in the Crow, our ancient but rapid Toyota Corolla small-body, and some pleasant treats. BB and LittleLeg are ever so proud of our daughter's valiant efforts, she tried her heart out.

While Baba is at school, the old folk take their new 'Hooptie' out for a spin, they only bought it the day before. It's old, it has some issues but it is an enjoyable car to drive and hopefully will prove to be durable and strong in the coming years. The Toyota Revo was the most popular car in the Philippines for several years.
BritishBiker and LittleLeg discuss the events of the past month, new car, moving house and hitting 1000 subs on YouTube. It took 15 months but we got there in the end! Now what?

BritishBiker spotted an ideal family Hooptie, an old Toyota Revo, for sale online and took LittleLeg off to see it on the Wimp, their Yamaha XT250 Serow. BB motovlogs as they head to a meet up with their friend who also owns a Revo. Was the car ok? Did BB buy it? Was he able to hammer down the asking price?

BB and family are expecting friends and have promised them the best bibingka in the region. This bibingka is a cake made from rice flour and has cheese, salted egg and shredded coconut added, it's incredibly good. BB and his daughter take a ride to hunt it down motovlog style. They fail miserably.

BritishBiker and LittleLeg take a motovlog ride on "Wimp", their Yamaha XT250 Serow motorcycle and talk about the dangers of revealing too much personal information on YouTube. Recently BB had an email from a well-meaning subscriber warning him of these dangers, such as malicious trolls and criminal elements. BB gives his take on the subject, all while riding on errands around the province. He also talks about his daughter's school and a controversial new rule that has angered a number of parents. Come for the ride!

(Note: Today is Remembrance Day, Manila time, and so once this video is up BB is heading off to pay his respect for fallen family, friends and colleagues. God Bless. See you later.)

The BB family encounter something very strange in their new house. The previous occupants believed that kapre, duwende and other malevolent spirits are to blame............that family suffered for years at the hands of mischievous and violent duwende or dwarves. BritishBiker investigates in motovlog style.
Kapre is a tall, bearded, dirty-looking spirit that sits in trees smoking at night. Duwende are dwarves/elves who can often be quite nasty and violent. Aswang is the most well-known monster here who sits on the rooftops of pregnant women's houses, some say it is cannibalistic.

BritishBiker took time out of a busy day to catch up with his Filipina friend, Rochelle, and they get to talk about cars, God, Love and BB's new house!
BB also motovlogs how brutal life used to be in a remote fishing community a few years ago, and how concrete has replaced so many muddy trails. Time changes everything.
He spots a 3rd generation Mitsubishi Strada, still one of his all-time favourite cars, and gets to wonder how many cars he would really need if he were a richer man!

Hello viewer. Didn't feel much like talking but I hope you still enjoy this early morning bank raid on a Yamaha XT250 Serow motorcycle.
I really love riding my bike anywhere in the mornings.
Special thanks to A3 for the terrific sounds, I won't ever forget the many times I saw you guys in Brixton and countrywide at various gigs and festivals.

BB and family take a drive to go shopping for the first time since they moved house.........need to, as the food cupboard is empty and BB was waiting for payday! Moving house is expensive.
BB discusses his personal experience with various internet and TV service providers here in the Philippines over the last 11 years, some good some not so good. He experienced Smartbro, Cignal, Globe and PLDT as well as a small local company which has turned out to be a shining star!!

BritishBiker and LittleLeg have a few errands to run whilst hunting for an artist for a 'Top Secret' commission. Just enough time before the 2nd quarterly PTC (Parent-Teacher Conference) and awards ceremony takes place. Baba came 2ns in English and Maths, both exams she came 1st but her classroom work was not good enough to secure 1st place overall. So, should she get a good thrashing? Lucky for her she was the only High Honours recipient in the whole of Grade 4 (over 40 kids) and so the beating will have to wait for another day. The little star also came 7th in the Principal's List, a superb achievement for such a tiny dot. Hope you enjoy the video troopers.

BritishBiker and LittleLeg take a ride on the Wimp (Yamaha XT250) and visit a steel gate manufacturer, a local SME that employs more than 15 people and is doing a lot of business. They specialise in steel gates, stainless steel fabrications and aluminium window frames. A senior hand demonstrates to BB how they twist the naked steel rods using an old owner jeep and talks about Chinese steel!
Then onwards in search of an artist and some brown bread.

BB tries his hand at recovering a dining chair and talks about the upcoming US Midterm Elections, globalism, the corrupt banking system and the danger that President Trump now faces as he takes on the Federal Reserve. The Fed is nothing more than a private company which fronts up the banking cartels globally. Presidents Lincoln, Kennedy and McKinley were all assassinated after taking on the big banks. Praying for President Trump's safety.

BritishBiker ordered a new steel grille for the front door of his new home and was told it would be two weeks. Miraculously, 4 days later the installation crew arrived with the new gate. See them cut, weld and bolt the new screen which will certainly add to the house's security. This cost P6700 which is an extremely keen price and even though there was extra work, the guys did not charge for it. The design replicates the existing design on the window grilles too. Great people to deal with and highly recommended. Thanks to Arthur Brown for his "Fire" tune, great stuff from 1968. British Biker Philippines Expat

Well viewer, we did it! Hopefully, the last time BB ever needs to move house. Take a look at the actual moving day and a tour of our new home in Cavite Philippines. Three bathrooms, 4 toilets, 4 bedrooms, two kitchens and parking for more than 6 cars.........maybe BB will take in some Somali migrants?

The Sunday before we move house the BB family digs into their compost heap to find you a lovely treat! Some Coconut Beetle larvae, also known as the Asiatic Rhinoceros Beetle, these grubs grow to enormous sizes and eat through any decaying organic matter. Then they wrap themselves in a cocoon and after a few weeks the adult beetle emerges, flies to the top of a coconut tree and eats the new shoots as they sprout. This is what gives many coconut palms the square cut looking fronds or branches. We just wanted to show you before we leave.
This is our 200th published video.

BritishBiker and LittleLeg ride the Wimp to a very poor coastal community to hire some willing folk to help us move house. They are relatives, and as you may know, 'relatives' can cover a huge number of people here. They go deeper into the community and try to find BB's first house in the Philippines but it's too crowded now. The storms and sea have brought the shoreline closer to the houses and removed some of them. BB gets given coffee and dried fish, such generous folk. Good people. BB talks about the flooding there and his exciting life in that place.

BritishBiker and family take another trip to NAIA Manila airport to say a sad farewell to Jerry, LittleLeg's brother. Airport authorities are making a splendid effort to make Terminal 2 more beautiful and it's working. BB talks about US politics and corruption, Free Trade and horrible Harley-Davidson gearboxes. Best of all, BB sees a beautiful girl with great legs wearing heels; it's the little things that make a difference! Join us.
