Life In The Slow Lane

In Southeast Asia small capacity machines like this are pressed into service carrying staggering amounts of stuff. Speed isn’t important, just the ability to move produce and people from A to B, no matter how slowly. I have seen 2 adults, 2 kids and a dog on a C90 outfit loaded down with bags of rice higher than the riders head, and all at a stately 5-10 mph.

  1. Saw the same thing in South Korea, trays of tofu, about 2-3 foot square, stacked about 5-6 foot high on the back of wee Hyosung Suzuki 125s going from what could be considered a "factory" off to the shops or wherever during the winter when the roads were very slick.

    Saw all types of things on the back of them. Scary! the TT cards, been too busy to let ya know...sorry....a horrid thing called work got in the way!
