Unlike any other riders who take motorcycling or motor biking less serious, Halik’s leading man Jericho Rosales considers the activity personal.
Echo said in an interview with a blogger that his love for motor biking started since his parents gave him a motorcycle toy. “It was in die-cast metal and had a key that you would pull [so it would run.]”, is how he described it. Since then, his fascination for motorcycles grew.
Echo said that in motor biking, “you’re one with your surroundings.”
“There’s a sense of fulfillment in being able to balance”, Echo added.
He also revealed that a privilege he gets from motor biking is a certain amount of freedom, which he needs as a celebrity. He described that wearing a helmet and a mask enables well-known people like him to go out on the road without anybody noticing. It therefore gives him the chance to freely move like an ordinary citizen, which he loves to experience.
The Halik leading man has five motor bikes on his garage: one is a Vespa scooter, another is dirt bike which he already used in a competition. He also has a track bike, the other is a Ducati Scrambler and a Ural Cruiser.
Echo also shared in a separate media interview that in riding a two-wheeled vehicle, being cautious is what he primarily keeps in mind. “Freedom comes with responsibility”, the multi-talented actor stated. He said that he wears protective gear whenever he rides his bikes. Aside from that, he also stated that he checks his bike carefully before riding on it, never drinks any alcoholic beverage before riding and he avoids to ride if he’s sleepy. Jericho added he was self-taught in motor biking, but he added he once attended a series of weekend classes at local biking school.
Jericho added in another interview that he belonged to a group of riders called ‘The Bratpack’. With him in that group are other celebrities, such as Drew Arellano, Ryan Agoncillo and Paolo Abrera.
