Biker chick ...finally

I have never driven a motobike/scooter in my life.Yesterday was thee ultimate break in experience to driving a two wheeler. I was not given a second to practice or anticipate what was coming my way. Number one it was a shifter , number two i would be driving on the opposite side of the road, number three I would be driving in Asia(always insane),number four i was going to be driving all day...and all of this for the small sum of3$ sounds like a bad idea right?Yeah probably was but it turned out to be one of the coolest days thus far. I handled that scooter like a champ after the first few wobbly turns and was soon weaving in and out of traffick at 60km an hour. I soon found myself at a destination about an hour away. We went off roading for a bit and i assure you that i thought myself a gonner more than once. However after a bit we pulled over and decided to use our legs. We hiked around for a while and found a small diamond in the rough. A hill tribe community! It was awesome we met a couple villagers and communicated as best we could. The rest of our adventure included long necked women, a broken motorbike, a lot of sun, a few temples, one great sunset, and a spectacular night cruise.. I have given up on typing because the keyboard at this internet cafe is ridiculous. So the end
