Without a doubt, the motorcycle I saw most during my time in Japan was the Honda Super Cub. Makes sense considering there are more of them around the globe than any other motorized vehicle, two wheels or four. What impressed me most about this particular one was the many different areas in which its owner was determined to fit groceries. We sometimes take for granted the fact that motorcycles aren’t recreational items in other parts of the world like they are here. This brought that reality back into focus for me.
