The Family Motorcycle

Motorcycles are becoming more and more common here as life is more expensive and cars and gas move out of reach of many families. There isn't much point in worrying about safety when you see a family of four on a motorbike. At least the girls are wearing baseball caps to keep the sun off.

Wow! I've seen this as well. It's scary. I've also seen one of these bikes get hit by a car sending 4 people off the bike....no helmets. This happened in Peru. Nasty consequences but I also see this trend as well.

Gosh they wouldn't get five minutes down the road here, but can't compare, another world! I remember the traffic when we were in Egypt, that's a terrifying prospect.Still I guess if you have to get from A to B and haven't got a car...!
