In Hong Kong the Vespa is the scooter of choice for deliveries.

Geeze I'd be worried about doing a wheelie if that box were fully loaded.

Back arround 1979 when London was overrun with motorcycle couriers I worked just off Tottenham Court Road and next door was a courier company xspecialising in taking advertising artwork from place to place. All the bikes were Honda 175s and they had boxes much larger than those Chinese scoots!

Nah, that bike doesn't have the torque to pull the front wheel even with that big box on it. They look like PXs. Razz emoticon Laughing emoticon

I love how the grill guy has mod targets on his sign.

It's always a good idea to start a charcoal fire on top of a gasoline powered scooter. He's got the seat up, so I can only assume he has the gas cap off, too.

It's not something I'd do, but he's a trained professional.

Well sure the gas cap is off ... how do you think that grill is running? Laughing emoticon

He's got the seat up, that has to be the fuel source!

I wish I could read the sign, my guess is that it says "High Octane Hot Dogs", "Sausages, extra benzene, no charge" or maybe just "BP flame broiled"

Where do you think he gets the oil for his 2 stroke? Runoff from greasy sausage?
