Welcome to Underbone Tuner

Underbone tuner is a free online magazine for Underbones, Scooters, Backbones and occasionally we might squeeze in a big bike or two . We have been covering small motorcycles modifying culture for over 8 years already and still counting. We have the latest updates/news on motorcycle racing events from all over the country such as circuit, motocross, flat track, endurance, trail and supermoto. We cover motorshows from all over the country. We cover the latest bike launches and the latest trends in bike modifying culture.

But at the core of Underbone Tuner is the bike modifying / customizing culture. We scour the country for the best motorcycle builders/modifiers. We feature the owners of these amazing bikes and the talented teams and individuals behind these bikes. We give you the story behind those builds and hopefully we inspire others to keep this fascinating culture alive.

This website is dedicated to all motorcycle enthusiasts, this our life, this is our passion, this is who we are. We may be riding different bikes but we share the same fascination and love for motorcycles. We are all brothers in two wheels.

Underbone Tuner was able to interview Jed Ko of SkutGarage a Team that has
been making waves on the Circuit with their dominating performance on the open automatic categories.

This is how it went.

1. Can you tell us more about Skut Garage? how did you guys get started? can
you give us a brief history of skut garage?

It started with our hobby in scooter collection. While drinking with friends the
night before the OZR race in danao last year we decided to join the race in the
morning. With our basic knowledge about scooter tuning we decided to build a bike
that night for the race (a 90cc Honda Dio). People were laughing at our scooter
competing against underbones, luckily we won second place on Danao local's
category. We were not really serious about it but just joined the race for fun.
This then inspired us to form a group. SKUTGARAGE


2. Where is your club or race team based? Who are the officers? Who founded it?

We are based in Danao City. It is founded by Jed Ko, Joma "Daloy" Ko and our
rider Mark "Atchong" Capoy.


3. SkutGarage has dominated all scooter categories, what makes you different from
the rest of the teams? What is the x-factor that makes skutgarage exceed above the
rest?

Maybe because we join races just for fun, no pressure on winning. Winning the race
is the very last thing on our mind. I think we also have a competitive rider.


4.what are your future plans? Do you plan to field in more riders? Do you plan to venture in the underbone categories?

For now, we have a new rider (Gilbert "bitog" Miro) for the automatic class,
he won 2nd place in Danao Locals Category, 5th place on Mixed Automatic Open.
Hopefully next year we will give underbone category a try.


5. Can you share some advise to the readers about how to be successful in scooter/underbone racing?

Take one step at a time,enjoy what you are doing,have fun and learn from the experts.

6. Who are your sponsors that you would like to thank?

Our biggest sponsor are my parents, Bagwis Game Farm,Pauls Cellshop,1337 Internet
and Gaming, Sweet Inn Drive. And Special thanks to Mr. Bobby Mencias of BMR.


7. Any message you can give to underbone tuner magazine?

Thank you to Underbone tuner magazine, for supporting the local underbone/racing
scene, again,THANK YOU and MORE POWER!!!!
