Moto Ambulance


There is a new Unicef campaign to raise money to put 35 more motorcycles in the field to deliver crucial aid to areas that are difficult to reach when roads are damaged or non-existent.
https://www.unicefusa...*

Improve your moto-karma; donate your unassessed speed fines, unused fuel budget, and unneeded farkle fund. Great cause, tax deductible.

They had a similar thing in the "Long way down" movie. Richard Branson sponsered a dozen or so moped like bikes.

Fricken nutz.

Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented immigrant'
is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist'

That guy is hauling time-critical medical supplies (likely blood). He's a volunteer, they have a foundation that does that and also educates fellow riders and drivers. Mad props to them.

Sometimes being crazy is necessary to get the job done

In his instance he might find it necessary to use some of those supplies he carries.

I thought they are EMT's, and with the traffic in the cities the work in they can arrive on scene faster than a full truck type ambulance. There is a great deal of portable gear you can carry on a bike these days....but if this is what they do that is cool.

I remember back at the time I flew I transported medical supplies in coolers in my private plane....it was a relay, I would pick up from someone else then fly to another airport and hand them off to another pilot. One of the few things a private pilot can do as it is all a no money exchanged type deal. I have been away from flying for about 20 years now so that could have changed....but it was a cool thing to do and was a good feeling.

Sounds to me like he already has him beat...plus the added emergency vehicle lights.

I could never do what he did & hope to never need someone who can.
