Taipei has probably one of the highest percentage of scooter ownership anywhere. I’ve got no numbers to back that up but there are a LOT of them. It’s crazy how many of them there are in the city. The streets – and the sidewalks – are clogged with them. Most of the scooters are black, nondescript cookie-cutter models that typically had a rather rundown look about them. Some of the hipster had wicked tricked out models, and occasionally you would see these really cool old Taiwanese motorcycles. The old motorcycles often had a lot of character but I wonder what the maintenance would be like for them.
