The tricycle -- a motorcycle with a covered sidecar that seats anywhere from one passenger to as many as the driver will allow (and it sometimes reaches a ridiculous amount, with people hanging on to the back, sides, and top!) -- is a common mode of public transportation in the Philippines. I saw one nearly every day when I lived there, but it was completely foreign to my kids when they first rode on one last December. But they quickly grew to love it (where else would they get a chance to travel by motorcycle, not to say anything about the lack of helmets or seatbelts!). They enjoyed riding tricycles so much, 3Po declared he wanted to drive one when he grew up.
