I thought I'll post this one. This is a popular means of transportation in the Philippines. A motorcycle with a side car. It was fondly call tricycle for obvious reasons.

My sister's family used to owned several of this until they sold them but keep this one for personal use.

Lots of this roam around the rural areas. Use to transport anybody or anything. It can fit several people, yes several. As many as 3 inside, the driver and another one at the rear of the driver.

Btw, the tree on the left is the "money tree". A popular chinese tree. I never thought it will grow this big! Ditse, spread her goodwill by giving this away to some friends. I know it is random, but I can't help mentioning it.

In the Philippines, 2010 photo essay.

Also in the My sister Ditse... photo essay.

    This no doubt is the coolest sidecar I have EVER seen, period...I have never seen a sidecar as fancy and as big s this one..being a fan of the motorcycle and it's history it is a treat to see a set up like this one..my brother has a 1985 BMW in a cafe racing style with a faring etc...this BMW sidecar is ULTRA COOL..The motorcycle does not appear to look like a BMW..What kind is it?

    Steven, this is a proof of filipino's ingenuity. It was just any ordinary motorcycle, maybe a Honda, or Suzuki or even a Mariwasa (?). The BMW logo is just a decor, obviously. Most rural areas have small street, so this is so popular means of transortation for a short distance. Then we have jeepney, this is another original transportation that you will not want to miss.
