I know of somebody who tried to bike Mindanao from Manila solo in the late 80s. Everything went well until he got to Sulu where he unwittingly entered hot territory. Good thing it was the local Muslim barangay officials & soldiers who intercepted him first. Further down the road, it would have been the MNLF. He still got detained for about three days. The soldiers released him after they were convinced that he was just a harmless, adventurous fool.
Anyway, if you're going as far as Tawi-Tawi, why settle for Bonggao? If I were you, I'd go to Sitangkai instead- the LAST & SOUTHERNMOST municipality of the Philippines.
Sitangkai has no roads- everybody moves about in boats. So even if a bike is useless there, I'd still like to see that unique place.
Just a travel tip.

Dale Abenojar rode a motorbike up Mt. Apo? I really wonder what the heck he's trying to prove.
In 2004, he forced a 4x4 up Pinatubo. Man, you should see the damage he wrought to the trail! And for what?
What's he gonna do next, go up Everest on a Sherman tank? (He failed doing it on foot.)
;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
I heard he hired sherpa's to bring that motorbike up.., disamantled the bike first and assembled again when they reached the summit, took photos and dismantled the bike again before going down ... isn't that cool?, yep i heard also that they brought motocross bikes up the summit of mount Pulag...

stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.

anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....
Aug 13, 2019 11:27:45 GMT 8
anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.

anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.

lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.

anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

stealthwanderer: Hello! Meron bang pumapasok around Greenhills? If so, saan kayo nagpapark ng bike?
