Water transport

Not transportation on water but transportation to carry water. In And not a drop to drink, I posted a photo of the water filtering station where we buy our drinking water. We don't really have to go there ourselves—the shop delivers using this motorcycle and custom side car.

Looks big enough to transport people when not lugging water.

RuneE said...

That was neat solution - simple and effective.

Initially, I thought this was a mini platform for transporting people. Water is better, though. Great picture and interesting information.

Sailor Girl said...

Ah ah ah!! This is also quite funny indeed!!! Thanks for warning!
Have a nice week!!!

This to me is extrmemly odd, because we just don't have to transport water to our homes and business. Very interesting and No I wouldn't have guessed what this for.

Olivier said...

c'est une bonne idée cette moto, et une solution simple.
it is a good idea this motorbike, and a simple resolution.

Katney said...

A great invention.

Halcyon said...

I like the sidecar. Good idea!

Lily Hydrangea said...

I've never seen anything like this before for this purpose. Odd, & interesting too!

JC said...

Very good! It's an efficient delivery method. The only thing I can think of more efficient, which wouldn't be practical for your water, is the bicycle courier we sometimes see in the big cities.

R and J said...

What a nice invention!

Boise Diva said...

I forget that we're lucky to have water to drink right out of our faucets.

Bergson said...

Bangkok Nik said...

Great shot - just like the bikes here in Bangkok - great to see more blogs from this part of the world! By the way, I've put a link to here from my blog, and thanks for your comments, too! I look forward to more pics and entries like this.

I've been living in Willits too long. I thought it could also be used to haul small livestock like calves, goats, sheep...

Carrie Hayes said...

First time on your blog, you have such wonderful photos to show your city! Great shots!!

JM said...

That is so cool! I've never seen such a side car.

angela said...

How inventive..and I wouldn't have guessed either! Neat shot.

tr3nta said...

And I thought I've seen every thing... great Idea!!! :-)

What a beautiful motorbike. Do you? May it be Easy, achievements. New i hear british. Get The Wrong write decline.

Jackie said...

That is a really cool photo! I wouldn't ever have imagined its use though. I remember when I was a kid my dad had a sidecar on his motorbike (I think I went in it once or twice - this was more than 30 years ago though so my memory is hazy!). It was a bit more enclosed than this one!

Ming the Merciless said...

How cool is that? Is it expensive to buy filtered water?

I just use Brita filter to "clean" my tap water.

Hilda said...

Ming:
Not very expensive. It costs PhP100 (about US$2) for 15 gallons. I'm thinking of getting a Brita too but I have to do some computations first. Since it's imported, it might turn out to be more expensive than just buying filtered water.

i see the same thing here in our village.

Dragonstar said...

very good shot, and a nice way to transport the water. Most unusual for our part of the world.
