I guess he got himself cover in case of a flat tire.
When you have a friend who offers you a ride on her “MoTuoChe” you don’t think twice before ditching your driver 😉
While I enjoy my scooter, a 摩托车 ride is truly a Beijing experience. The lack of shock absorbers sure adds to the experience too and that’s not counting the number of head turning among Chinese people seeing two westerners, especially one driving one of their three-wheelers.
I haven’t posted a “What’s on their bike while on my bike” picture in a while.
Maybe because I’m not as impressed with their load anymore or I don’t pay as much attention or maybe I’ve seen them all!!! I do know that the most impressive loads are usually spotted late at night or early in the morning. Maybe I need to make a special discovery trip in the middle of the night to get impressive pictures.
Those are public bikes that can be borrowed (for a small fee/subscription – same that we’ve had for years in Paris, the Velib’) and sometimes there are too many at some spots and not enough at other spots so transfer need to occur. And what better way then to transfer them by putting them on a sanluche.
The Dove gang.
I was way impressed by how the birds stayed put on their little feet each time they were turning or hitting on their brakes.
