Hello Motos

I snapped these on our way to do some shopping at a local electronics market. We were crossing a bridge over one of the main streets near Taipei Main Station. This is a pretty typical scene on the streets here.
Motorcycles/scooters are the preferred form of transport in this densely populated city. I think this is a cool shot. The red light was directly below me.

Taiwan has the highest percentage of moto/scooter ownership in the world.

I slid over to the other side of the bridge to catch the same group of riders speeding off.

It looks a bit chaotic, but the traffic in this town moves with remarkable efficiency.
