SCOOTERS & SHROOMS ~ transporting body & mind
« on: June 30, 2012, 08:42:21 pm »
This is not really a Ride Report but I want to share with you a couple of pics of a visit to my kids who have just set up home in Bali- Indonesia.

Scooters are very much the order of the day which makes a lot of sense when one experiences the traffic congestion. This whole visit turned in to a wonderful experience. One can’t help but notice the lack of ‘agro’ on the roads and very little in the way of noticeable crime.  You can quite happily leave your shopping on the parked scooter and expect it to be there when you return.



HEADING OFF TO DINNER ON THE BACK OF CALVINS BIKE (MY SON) ~ GREAT EXCITEMENT!



GOING SHOPPING WITH MY DAUGHTER, ROXY




BIKES PARKED AT KUTA BEACH



RICE PADDYS







A COUPLE OF AMUSING SIGHTS





These ‘Scoopies’ are a very popular bike amongst the ladies and my daughter hopes to be buying one for herself shortly.

The kids bullied me into experiencing the ‘mushroom’ thing with them.....it was a good for a giggle but......NEVER EVER AGAIN!








It was a great experience.....but for a biking holiday, for me....... nothing beats AFRICA on an XT!!   :ricky:

Cool stuff!
I love the East, the people with their smiling chilled non agro attitude and gazillions of scooters allsorts.
If I knew what I know now I would not have spent half my youth in Europe and would much rather have spent time travelling on that side of the world.
Did the scooter and shroom shake thang in Thailand as well and giggled all night long like silly kids. Harmless fun really.
TVB, those shakes in her photos don't look very appetizing and you don't really want to taste the shrooms either but they disguise it very well with whatever else is in them.
