The streets have everything from lorries to western SUV's to pedicabs but a
Vespa-like motorcycle is the ultimate instrument of mobility in Vietnam.
People speak with pride of how many motorcycles are in their household and
going out to ride in the evening is both recreation and social activity.
I don't think anyone ever considers whether there's any practical limit to how
many people or what kind of cargo will fit on a motorcycle. Whatever you
happen to have goes on the motorcycle. It's that simple.
