Just trucking along….

Drax - The tinyest truck!

Did you know about a special little truck call Drax? ….. Tata…

400cc V-twin engine. This is not your usual delivery vehicle… but its the most common delivery vehicle for fastfood, courier and workers. I once saw a Spark 110 carrying a painter and his crew, left arm holding a large tub of paint and right arm a sack of rollers and tools, extension poles sticking out to the back. The strange looking duo were on their way to a job! I thought that was remarkable that a whole business operates on a little bike. Considering that cost of a truck is really eating away too much of the earnings in this very competitive trade, I guess people carefully look to cut where they can.

Tying down.

From the time that I decided to sell my car, Trio… I knew that this little one is gonna have to pull like a mule. … and so it does. Here we have a 10kg gas tank, fully packed trolley bag of stuff for a weekend on Calliste, my ‘puter and 2 of us with 2 bag packs. Our typical truck load… 🙂

Tying down properly is the most important thing to do. … if you want the cargo to arrive in good shape… or if it arrives at the destination at all…. We havent lost anything so far… but on this particular day, we had a cooked onion by the time we got to Keppel.. well… try not to have food resting on exhaust ok…
