It was our first time driving a moped and that means some people won't rent to you, but we rented one from the place where we were staying where they were really laid-back about it. The moped was pink and gray with a floor board that said "playboy" with multi-colored bunnies (The playboy brand is everywhere in asia, we have playboy brand towels in our flat).
We had it for 24 hours and couldn't have been on a better island to use it. On Koh Lanta, it's impossible to get lost because there are only 3 roads but the island was big enough to explore and discover lonely rocky beaches and joy-ride. One time we pulled off, we were hiking down to a beach, looking at rubber being collected from the trees and saw a monkey swinging around in them.
In one part of the ride I was filming, we saw a guy wipe out on his bike in the opposite lane and skid into ours and then off the road. I partially caught it on film. Amazingly, he was unscathed and he picked up a few broken pieces of his bike and then later passed us going way too fast again. Daniel did a great job driving, and it was so much fun and so good on gas, we are thinking about a Vespa when we get back to SC!
