Bali IV – Motor Bikes Unlimited

Few words and a bunch of photos. I missed getting some fully loaded bikes, like the one I saw yesterday carrying dozens and dozens of eggs. Also missed my favourite – women riding side-saddle, heads held high – very elegant. They stay on effortlessly!

Check these out and yes, do the 2 click to get up close – look at the faces.

See the little guy in the gold/blue shirt – plays for the Seminyak roosters.

Hundreds of cars, trucks, bikes, motor bikes and pedestrians shuffle themselves through this intersection hourly – beep, beep – without swearing, fist waving, or even flipping the bird! No traffic lights, give way signs or traffic cops.  As a walker, I call it the ‘leap of faith’ – it’s proof there’s a higher power when you get across in one piece.

I’ve heard that teaching young girls martial arts, not only arms them with self-protection skills, but also builds their sense of self-respect. Abuse of young women and women of all ages, I think, is a big deal here. These girls are about to ride into my favourite inter-section. I watched them make it with fingers crossed.

    Love, Cathy Lee

  2. I can’t believe how many people can fit on one bike and so casually placed, babies and all!

    Not surprised at accidents there – the sights and sounds must be amazing – like Nickie, I am in awe at how many are on a bike – I take it, helmets are not mandatory there too – what sweet innocent faces! Doesn’t one wonder where they are all going?
