Sreypov's Got A Moto Waiting For Her In The USA 🛵💨

I guess it is very optimistic thinking, but in anticipation of our arrival in the USA, I purchased a very cute vintage motorbike for @sreypov.

Wheels Are Waiting In The USA 🦸🏽‍♀️

     Some of you know from my recent post titled 🤷‍♂️ Sidecar Or Not? 🛵 Brainstorming Future Family Transport For The USA 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧, that I have been contemplating how we're gonna get from point A to point B in my little farmtown in southern Indiana.

     I'm definitely getting a sidecar for my Vespa, and there's no doubt that will be much fun. It will also help us to maintain some remnants of our way of life in Cambodia. We actually had a Bajaj RE autorickshaw in Cambodia, and before that a motorbike that we rode 4-up on. Tuk-tuks aren't really available in the USA, so the next best thing is a sidecar, but that only moves 3 of 4 family members.

Problem Solved 👨‍🔧

     That handsome guy in the above photo is my Dad, who drove 2 hours to get this exquisite 1982 Yamaha Towny 2-Speed. I found the bike on Facebook Marketplace, and my Dad was nice enough to pick it up for me and surprise Sreypov. My Dad sent me a few photos, but I've also uploaded all the images from the Facebook Marketplace listing. SOLD!!!

A Cambodian Life In The USA? 🤷‍♂️

     I guess it's a bit optimistic because we don't even have an interview date for US Immigration, but we're grasping for straws when it comes to positive news in Suriname. This moto cost me $800, a little more than I was hoping to spend, but it only had 2,000+ miles on it, and basically still looks brand new.

     I really wished to get Sreypov a classic Vespa, but 50cc classic Vespas are nearly impossible to find in the USA, plus they command a high price. It's a perfect learner bike for my wife, and even though she already knows how to ride, she's by no means super confident on two wheels yet.

     I hope with this little beauty Sreypov and I will get to make some fun memories. Even without a sidecar for my Vespa, Monkey-B could ride on the back of this lightweight with Mom, and we can have lots of fun countryside adventures, and try to create some Cambodian fun in the Indiana countryside.

     We will likely be the talk of town with this bright moped and my Vespa cruising the streets, a far cry from being part of the moto swarm on the roads of Cambodia. I forgot to mention that USA law dictates in order to drive a motorbike over 50cc, one must first pass obtain an automotive license before getting a motorcycle learner's permit.

     My wife doesn't want anything to do with a car, and I can't blame her, but it's a stupid law that you have to know how to drive a car before you can ride a motorcycle in the USA. Well, thanks to good ole' American bureaucracy Pov is gonna be restricted to 50cc, but certainly not style.

     Enjoy this GIF of my Dad giving it his approval. After his thumbs-up, I think he gave it full-throttle, notice how he had to lean forward to prevent a wheelie from all that horsepower.

Help me give this bike a name in the comments below. The best one I have so far is BumbleBee, but that's way too easy, surely you Hivers have something better...

Wow so cute, congrats for the new motorbike. I would appreciate if you could teach me how did you upload video like what you did in your blog above. Thanks in advance.

The last image is actually a GIF, not a video. For a proper video upload 3Speak is the way to go. You can create GIFs online easily through various websites, then upload them to Hive, but Hive recommends they are less than 25MB each.

In my experience, I've never been able to successfully upload a GIF to Hive any larger than 15MB. I make my GIFs in the Shotcut, but it's overkill if you're just trying to make GIFs only. Perhaps Giphy might be helpful for you.

There will be no backroad left unexplored, and we will make picnic trips just like we used to in Cambodia, even though it's something absolutely no one does in southern Indiana. I assume we'll be chased off private property occasionally, but I'm also certain there will be an equal amount of curiosity and interesting conversations sparked too.

Wow, that bike is so cool.
I'm very interested in seeing it.

It's a shame she can't get a 125cc bike like we had in Cambodia, it would be much more capable. However, this bike will get the job done, and I love vintage 2-strokes. With me riding the Vespa next to her, people will hear us coming before we arrive.

What a cute motorbike. I suggest her name is Hivians.As to remember we are in Hive.

That might be a good name, plus it keeps with the bee-theme, which the yellow color accentuates so well already. Yama-hivian?

I can’t wait to ride it, this is my favorite color. Your dad or my father’s in law is so handsome. I hope to see him and his wife soon.

I hope we are there soon and you're riding this yellow beauty all over Hillbillyville, Indiana.

I would love one of those. Honestly though I would be too scared to ride it in the city. Traffic is unruly here.

I think it was so nice that your dad did this. It's a sign that the wheels are in motion and you are on way.

I love the gif and I see where you get your good looks from!

Well, if things don't work out I can likely sell it for more or the same as what I bought it for. I am one of the few gingers in our family, but if you saw my aunt who is also a ginger, you'd think she was my Mom. The wheels are now literally in motion...

Sometimes you just gotta clean things up and make some nice zeros.
