I was, however, able to ride this Tuesday, May 18, 2010.
I accompanied my brother to get PNP clearance for his XRM. Didn't take photos there though. It was actually pretty hot, out. A pain to ride around specially mid day.
Afterwards I wound up going to the (Picture Company) Podium store, which I once called home, to do some stuff for work. Helped me cool off too. Then made my way to SM North Annex, where I now stay during office hours. While I spent part of the off day partially working, I was still able to treat myself to a good hearty meal at Army Navy, and a different route home.
On a friend's recommendation, and in search of a good burger, I tried eating at the Army Navy Burger and Burrito place in the Skygarden of SM North Edsa. Ordered myself a double burger, with additional cheese and bacon, plus an order of fries with cheese dip, and a large iced tea. All in all, a good meal to be sure.

very thinly cut fries, good in themselves (cheese dip for gratuitousness)
A double burger is 2 quarter pound patties, with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles
the cheese and bacon were gratuitous.
After all that (unnecessary) nutrition, the inevitable ride home had to be undertaken. I wanted to shake things up and try a route that I've not taken. I've never really even taken it via 4 wheels, I wanted to try it out on two. Passed through Mindanao avenue, and basically just followed the road and the flow of traffic.

For the day, the wanderlust in me was satiated. If only for awhile.
