That looks like a normal day in Malaysian traffic.

Think they need some better tires...we've got a lot of scooters in our area...DUI's, Mexicans who can't get licenses, and the occasional gal who thinks she's cool on a scoot.

When it rains, I get away from them....every corner is an adventure. Hopefully someone makes a sticky scoot tire...they all seem to slip and slide here.


Common sense is dead. The wake is tomorrow.

Hopefully no riders got seriously hurt, but that was a hoot to watch. I guess the speed seems faster than it actually is. I've never seen so many highsides. Great training film for what happens when your tire grip says no.

That was funny. They just scramble and get back on. Looks like fun (with the right gear).

Lots of front end let goes. Look like a fahn hoot though.

Beautiful, but I don't think it's correct to classify them as scooters.

They look like motorcycles to me.
