Frog Rider

Are you a motorist? a commuter? or a rider? Well for sure you have seen a frog rider. It’s my term to those scooter/underbone motorcycle riders who place their feet conspicuously on the passengers foot peg or at the rear portion of their bike. Imitating the manner or style of a motogp racer or for me a “frog”.  Modestly aside, didn’t they feel any joint pain on their knees for riding on a very uncomfortable position?

They look so ridiculous funny especially at the back-view. It seems they’re about to leap anytime haha! Yay! Don’t get me wrong here guys because I’m a rider too myself. Actually I did tried it for the heck of it, but it only last a few minutes coz I feel silly lol.

Maybe If I have time I would take actual photos.  For now the image above somehow fits what they look like hehe. 😀

Motorhome

Going to the countryside, camping or simply being outdoor is something I’d really love to do. Its the time to bond with nature and leave techieness for the meantime. That’s why when I got some spare time I always engage myself on some long drive with my motorcycle.

If only motorcycle can be use for motorhome towing that would be great! I could plan a much longer itinerary as I could bring along everything I need (some cold beer and nachos hehe). I guess this wasn’t a dream anymore as I gawked upon the above photo of a motorhome being towed by a chopper bike at craziestgadgets.com.
