Riding Scooters in South East Asia
Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia August 2018
Hot damn, I love riding on the back of a moto in South East Asia! Zipping through crowded city streets, dodging all sorts of vehicles, people, and animals, over broken concrete and cobblestones...
In Jogja (as they call it here) I was able to practice again. I always think of my Quebecois friend Phillipe, and the journeys he took me through Brooklyn on his motorcycle years ago- merci toujours mon ami! Thanks to your tips and lots of practice, I can now successfully perch on the back of a scooter, weaving through rush hour city traffic, without ever touching the driver. It is a skill I am quite proud of!
