Motorcycles are the transport of choice if not necessity for the masses of Indonesia, mostly the step-through models ranging from 50 to 125cc, easy to purchase, cheap to run and a source of transport for the whole family, household appliances, furniture and domestic farm animals.
The most passengers I ever saw on a bike was six, two adults and four children, a quick Google Image search will probably supersede this easily.
Apparently immediately after purchase it is advisable to disconnect the odometer so when the bike is eventually sold the mileage will read 200k, but as every vehicle’s Speedo reads the same it is ignored anyway.
So you ask, with the speedo disconnected how will the rider know how fast he is going?
Faster than YOU that’s all he needs to know!
