Duterte plans to go around Metro Manila on his motorcycle
MANILA, Philippines — Motorcycle enthusiast President Rodrigo Duterte is planning to go on a bike ride around Metro Manila.
Brig. General Jose Eriel Niembra, Presidential Security Group Chief, said Duterte won’t stop riding his motorcycle despite being on the hit list of the New People’s Army (NPA).
“He said he will live and die with a motorcycle because he said it is better to die riding a motorcycle rather than to die in bed,” Niembra said, quoting Duterte.
“He has plan to go around Metro Manila on a motorcycle,” he added.
Duterte sustained injuries in October after he fell off a motorcycle at the PSG compound in Malacañang.
Duterte’s lifelong passion for motorcycles has left him with permanent nerve damage in his neck.
