Petron Corporation, the country’s leading oil company, signified its support for safety awareness especially among motorcycle riders by sponsoring the first Biker Meet-Up of Safe-T-Ryders Training Center, held last 18 February 2012 at the Ortigas Home Depot Complex in Pasig City.
Targeted at TODAs, motorcycle clubs and individual riders, the Biker Meet-Up program included an open forum with former LTO chief Alberto Suansing, who is currently the executive director of the Philippine Global Road Safety Partnership (PGRSP). In a lively exchange of ideas, Suansing discussed safety concerns with the biker-participants.
TV-radio host and biker Love-Love Tioseco was the celebrity guest for the Meet-and-Greet portion of the event, and the participants had the opportunity to have their photos taken with her.
Finally, the program concluded with a short presentation on the dangers of riding under the influence of alcohol. In an interactive demonstration using FatalVision goggles, the Safe-T-Ryder team simulated the effects of drinking on visual perception and the damaging consequences that can result in injuries and even death.
The range of Petron Sprint 4T motorcycle oils was also introduced to the participants, with an overview of their specifications and uses. Formulated to meet the different performance requirements of four-stroke motorcycles operating under moderate to severe driving conditions, Petron Sprint 4T is available in three variants—Sprint 4T Enduro for racing, Sprint 4T Rider for riding dependability, and Sprint 4T Extra for reliable performance.
Through its partnership with Safe-T-Ryders Training Center, Petron continues to strengthen its safety riding advocacy, particularly efforts to educate motorcycle riders to become responsible road users.
