This video shows a businessman taking a moto taxi – it explains a little about how things work, and it shows a safe and successful arrival… even after splitting lanes. A well-made video, for sure, and a pleasure to watch. Happy Monday!
Daily Ride – Fast forward from Paris to the airport
Found this awesome, awesome video of the ride from Paris to the airport – I believe it’s CDG, since they pull up at terminal 2F. But I can’t be 100% sure. Check out the quick moves past the truck at 00:41 and again around 1:27. There’s lots of driving through tunnels, which I found… exciting… on my own ride last year. This driver (unlike my pilot at the time) appears to know his way quite well. Enjoy.
The Daily Ride – All Aboard a Honda GL 1800 Gold Wing
The Honda Gold Wing is the gold standard for moto taxi drivers in Paris. Some pilot other types (like my own pilot did during that “adventure” I had), but the Gold Wing is very, very common. This video shows all the features and conveniences the bike provides and shows a passenger comfortably traveling with the driver.
Daily Ride – Vintage footage of a moto taxi ride to the airport
We have come a long way in video production, in just the past 8 years, for sure.
In development – a first-hand account of moto taxi transport at CDG
The book is in development. Expecting release in early 2015, just in time for all the cabin-fever-crazed folks to live vicariously on a motorcycle in Paris.

I didn’t shoot this video, but I could have, on my last business trip to Paris.
Didn’t have my Go Pro with me, on that visit, but this guy did, and it brings back memories.
