Another Distracted Bike Rider in Osaka

Like my previous post concerning the stylish bike texting guy, I notice many distracted bike riders in Japan. I'm surprised there aren't more accidents. This guy is riding on a busy 4-lane road, texting, listening to music with headphones, no helmet (very common in Japan) and only a few fingers on the grips; and he still has time to stare at me taking his picture! How dare he!! Ha ha. I got a good expression!! 

Ride on Osaka!!


  1. Bike repair shops will always thrive. This is partly because bikes need fixing due to regular wear and tear. However it is also due to bicycle riders who damage their gear while doing foolishness.

    I for one don't think that texting while driving or driving is safe. why risk your life/ Why risk someone else's life. Just pull off the road and do what you have to do. You're not a comedy performer so behave like a serious road user.

  2. Yup, I'm on your side. It only takes a second to be killed. It also only takes a second to stop and reply to a text or check messages...thanks for your comment!

  3. The grasp is the lever simply forward of the left hand hold. Sportbikes regularly just require just a two-fingered task (or draw of the lever), while different bicycles like the cruisers and visiting motorcycles commonly require your entire hand to pull the lever and connect with the grasp.strap ratchet tie down
