Lush!  What are those small silver wheels under the exhaust for?

Crash bobbins. Helps with rocks and stones, when reversing bike backwards and also bumps from other bikes because of the jammed packed groups of bikes crowded around when in traffic. I actually got bumped in Bandung on them and knocked over against the bike to my left. We all managed to keep our balance and you just carry on. Culture here is that car is automatically at fault regardless if it bumps a bike
