How Many Pigs Can Your Scooter Carry?

October 24, 2006 Scooters 5 Comments

You know, I’ve never tried carrying any pigs, eggs or construction materials on my scooter. But, it seems many are able to transport quite large objects without a gargantuan truck.

Friends of mine sent me the link to a fun website that is nothing but great images of people transporting goods or many people via bike or scooter. Click on the photo at right to see an additional 22 images, including a scooter hauling quite a few pigs to market.

Third world? Yes, but just maybe we can learn a few things from them about getting by with less, including making a smaller impact on the planet’s environment. As I begin to travel more I think I need to find some of these far away places where scooters can transport so much. Maybe I can become as well traveled as Matt Harding.

Who is Matt? Good question. But, the better question is, “Where the Hell is Matt?” Very hard to describe but basically this self-described “deadbeat” has traveled to nearly 40 countries and has put together a video of him dancing (poorly) in many places all over the world. It will bring a smile to your face. So, Where the Hell is Matt?

    I like the guy with all the black and white chickens, and the guy with all the milk jugs.

    I was amazed on my recent trip to Mexico to see an entire family–mom, dad, a ~6 year old, and baby, all without helmets–riding on ONE scooter, carrying grocery bags.

    It’s the kind of thing that makes you think about priorities in life–here in the States, families that size claim to need a monster SUV.

  3. I’m using this next time someone tells me I carry too much stuff on my bike.

    Ah, the life of a musician.

    Thanks for blogging all this great UD!
