US sportbike freestyle champion Aaron Colton stunned people in Metro Manila's busy streets and other parts of the country by pulling off breathtaking, gravity-defying acrobatics on a KTM Duke 690 during his visit to the Philippines in May.

Colton's visit sought to shine a better light on motorcycles, as well as sportbike freestyle.

He said he was stunned by the "incredible" traffic in the Metro Manila. "It’s something that I have never encountered before. I live in Santa Monica now, which is in LA – one of the busiest traffic areas in the US – and it’s not even on comparison to this, literally. (And) there’s crafty drivers out here."

"It’s crazy to experience (them) first-hand, those jeepneys, tricycles, motorcycles," Colton said.
