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.

CPEB: Sinulog Bike Show 2012 at a glance

Pag kalisod diay mahimong judge =) di lalim
pressure kaayo during and after the event =)
Lisod kaayo kay daghan nindot na entries.

Bitaw kidding aside I understand the frustration of those who
did not agree with the final decision. You have invested time, money and
a lot of effort to come up with these amazing creations with your bikes
so I will try to do my best to shed light into the event. I think what happened was there was
no diversity in point of view due to unforeseen circumstances. I think 3 judges are not enough for 50
bikes and there were only 2 points of view available but the show must go on
so the organizers had to keep the event moving forward.

2 judges (representing the bike enthusiasts point of view) and 1 judge (representing the point of view of the Media)
originally there were supposed to be 5 judges total plus 2(from the sponsors side) but they did not push through
so the organizers had to improvise to ensure that the show must go on to prevent postponement of the decision.
I think this is a very important lesson when it comes to judging these kinds of events to come-up
with a well balanced decision. There should be at least 6 to 8 judges to ensure diversity of
point of views and ideas. This is also to make sure that each point of view is well represented.

Points of view to consider:
1. Enthusiasts point of view - persons who are actively involved in the art of
customizing/modifying bikes provided they dont have an entry.
2. Point of view from the Media - people from the Media (Magazine, News paper, Radio, TV)
3. Point of view from a non-motorist - to represent point of view from a regular person who is not into bikes.
4. Point of view from an ordinary motorist - persons who own bikes but not actively
involved in competitive bike modification/customization.
5. Point of view from a mechanic provided he is not affiliated with any of the entries.
6. Point of view from a race rider provided he is not affiliated with any of the entries.

I think having 1 to 2 persons for each can achieve a well balanced decision and it also pays to
have a back-up in-case some backout during the event.

I also think this is part of our evolution as underbone and scooter enthusiasts we share the same
fascination for motorcycles and scooters and we learn new things with each bike show and from these
learnings we can come-up with improvements to ensure the next event will be more balanced
in terms of point of view and much more spectacular. Overall its a good start and I think the organizers did
a good job considering it was their first time, I am confident that they will continue
to evolve and improve to come-up with more unforgettable events next time around. I also
hope for unity and understanding among all the stake holders as we step into the next
chapter of our evolution.

Safe riding to all. I hope you enjoy the pictures below.
