Sometimes when me and my friends are driving around town we always imagine that we a big bike for each of us we will drive all around Cambodia . Especially we would go to Sihanoukville and Siem Reap, because these two provinces are our favorite places to have a holiday; even though to drive from Siem Reap to Sihanoukville would be very far. But if we have a BIG bike for each of us we might DO this!
Me and my friends are really envious of one group who has six people and they drive six big bikes every evening at Hun Sen Park. And their bikes are all different. One is a Honda SL, one is XR, one is AX, and the rest are maybe Baja, but I’m not sure. Every time they drive past it makes a loud powerful noise and we feel very envious.
To have the big bike like we need to have good salaries too, because it needs a lot of petrol, and to fix one is very expensive. It’s really hopeless for my wish to come true. Just imagination. But when we talk about this, we have fun.
So, my friend Pearom has a godfather who has a big bike he bought for $2,800. We always try to borrow his bike to drive around, and sometimes we have luck and he says yes, and sometimes we have no luck and he says no.
It’s very strange that most of the girls in Cambodia don’t like big bikes. They like automatic gear bikes, like the Honda Icon. That’s a real chick-magnet here in Phnom Penh, specially the 2008 model. And other ones are the Honda Air Black, Honda Click, and Suzuki Step. These are the automatic gears that the girls like.
These are pictures I took of Pearom’s godfather’s bike one time when we were lucky and he said yes. These are pictures of Sochiet, Fou, and Chiroth, on the bike, the one and same bike, in front of Chiroth’s house. And no chicks, because this bike is NOT a chick-magnet. Boys like it, we like it, but not chicks.
