    Sort of like the lions of the Serengeti National Park of Africa that follow the great herds of Wildebeest as they pass their AO, my Italian made, 08 WR250 follows the yellow beasts it finds in the highlands of Cebu. Not sure where these guys are going, but I'm down with them.

    Heading west I think... Just not 100% where but with such a limited road structure, I've been there.

    Not sure if those trees are dead and dying or just a funny color

    Allentown and Allentown ridge in the background for a landmark.

    Little better view of some of the farm ground here.

    When I saw this herd, I thought it was a little odd, with that roller included... Normally a roller means cement pouring and no cement in sight yet here... There is an issue I have witnessed for yrs here... A road is graded and then rain water causes big gullies to wash out over the preceding 1-3 yrs .. Just mother-nature at work really ... Just a guess but it appears they are gonna compressed the new graded roads with the roller in an attempt to keep the roads passable, longer. That wheel on the front actually vibrates the ground as it rolls over it and causes the ground to shake ~20 feet away from it.

    Looking back to the east where I came from today

    Small view of some farming again; ain't no 28BIL$ or whatever the newer $$ bailout number is, coming for these farmers.

    My new ProGrip helmet... Actually got it on sale here; this place just does not have sales often on pricey stuff like this, might have to go back and get a second one that just might be the last USD I ever have to spend on a dirtbike helmet. Two helmets lasting ~3 yrs each, moves me right close to the 70 yr mark and I doubt I can actually ride that long.

    Nice to see the yellow plant pictures, I've worked with big machinery since I was 18, various types, still do now but railway based not road.
