Yamaha Fun in Buenos Aires

Colectivo Bus Line 9 in the downtown Buenos Aires, Argentina
I bet the guy on the motorbike is twice as fast as every car or bus in Buenos Aires. On the other hand he is also twice as vulnerable to traffic injuries. Well, the biker obviously realized that I had photographed him. Actually, I was more interested in the fancy bus behind him, no offense buddy. I really love these unique and eye-catching Colectivos.
Have you ever weaved through traffic on a motorbike?

Wonderful slice of life. And yeah, the biker looks like he's ready to grab your camera - or something!

Naw, I'd let other do the bike riding. Interesting traffic light, sort of leaning over the colourful bus.

Don't worry, there were no issues. The guy on the motorbike was completely cool and easy. I think his helmet made him grim and unsmiling and he was concentrating on the traffic.

Oh yes I have and it was thrilling. I grew up though and now, won't get near one. Great photos my friend!

Thanks for visiting San Diego!

Not on a motorbike but on a bicycle and that's really scary. It's amazing how many people in cars don't even see you!
