The Chinese have many variations of methods to get from Point A to Point B. In Beijing, there are a reported 3.7 million cars, trucks & busses, 9 million bicycles, and an untold number of motorbikes, motorscooters, & motorcycles.
There are many variations of conversions of motorbikes into vehicles that can carry extra passengers and a wide variety of cargo. The attached photo is of one of the better ones we saw. Some are just a frame with canvas sides, some are cobbled together with metal, and some are professionally done in metal or fiberglass, like this one. With today's gas prices in the USA this approach would seem to be very practical. I'd love to have one!
