It's All Relative
Addressed to me in the parking lot of the local Mega-Lo Market today by an older gentleman:
"I don't believe I've ever seen an air conditioner strapped to a motorcycle before"
"Once you've seen three Egyptians with three large suitcases riding together on a 125cc through Cairo, it's not that impressive".
(Nope, no picture of those three guys. It's hard to take a good picture at 0200 in the AM at 60 mph, and if I were on the receiving end of a camera flash at night in that situation I'd be seriously pissed off at the guy with camera. Bike picture, however, is one of the many locally owned Egyptian bikes out and about, most of which were about that size. If you owned a 600cc, you were King Stud of the local bike scene.
