This is what most of us hope to avoid. On a moto taxi, it’s quicker to get through.
Let’s go to Lyon, shall we?
This moto taxi’s fairings practically turn it into a car of sorts. It’s like a golf cart moving very fast. With room for a mother and child…
This is one of the ads that got me thinking about taking a moto taxi in Paris. In the pictures it looks great. In real life (with my lack of experience riding), it was a little less serene.
Moto taxis are everywhere — especially in Asia. In fact, until I rode a moto tax in Paris, I didn’t realize there were any in the Western world. Join me for this 5 minute jaunt through Siagon, Viet Nam
The businessman who gets on the back of this bike is far less well protected than I was. I had a leather jacket and gloves and a leather lap robe. But he still arrives happy — in the ad at least
Holy cow – we were moving really fast… at least, it felt that way to me. The creatures in the video below could have been interchanged with me and my pilot on the road from CDG to Paris, that fine spring morning last year…
Oh, the pain… the suffering… the angst. Getting stuck in a cab at CDG… what a horrible way to start a Paris visit. Once you get out of the airport, if the roads are open, it’s not so painful, but imagine what it’s like when the roads are clogged. Yeah, not so much fun.
This video is speeded up in some places, which is how I wish a lot of my cab rides had been.
This humble little video is shot from the inside of a car and shows motorcycles passing by the traffic … which moves very, very slowly. This is one of the reasons I took a moto taxi last year in Paris.
Nice footage, nice music. Enjoy this 2:08 minutes of sightseeing
