In the Philippines, motorcycle is slowly gaining popularity as an alternative mode of transportation for men and women alike. With traffic jams and the ever-increasing cost of fuel, it seems a practical solution for the people on the go. Motorcycle companies and dealers has caught on this trend by offering motorcycles at affordable terms. But along with its popularity are reports of road accidents. An insurance program called Spyder Assist comes at a very timely manner.
I was at the Festival Mall about a week back to attend the Spyder-Charge Your Summer 2012 mall event. It was a week-long event where Spyder showcased their line of quality multi-sport products from helmets, shades, eye wear, accessories and other protective gears. I realized I didn’t know much about this brand, thinking it was all about shades. I was dead wrong. Of course their eye wear product line was all in display, making me drool as much. I was also drawn to their watches.
There were also bicycles and motorcycles on display. Naturally, handsome Spyder helmets were also there. How i wish I can ride a bike. I can’t so i can only look on with envy. But what I heard during the event sure did make me happy. Not for me, but for motorcycle riders, that is. In partnership with Standard insurance, the company is offering the Spyder Assist™ Program.
