Couple of shots my g/f got from the back seat while we rided in Tehran, Islamic Republic of IRAN - 4 to 5 persons on the 50-125cc bikes is soooo common there:


 
 
Also they carried unimaginable stuff on the scooters:



Had those wierd windscreens, some scooters even had a roof for the rain! etc.

Stunning stuff  :)

Most of all - they take very little room in the traffic compared to cars and trucks.

Its a family vehicle!

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Ja nou maar fine!  A lot of guys from the Land of Curries on a Hero Honda with a supped-up suspension.  I will be much more impressed if they do a wheelie ... or even better, what about a stoppie?
