I noticed the existence of “a motor bike with pedals” first time in my life in a French movie, “Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain“. Many people like the movie; for me, the movie was not that fascinating (I did not like the camera angles), but I liked the motor bike, which I thought had been annihilated. I found the motor bike is called “moped”.
We used to make a lot of mopeds in Japan, too, but they are not manufactured any more.
It is not useful with a very small power, but it is not useless, either.
Today, I rode my moped to a gas station.
It took time to wake up the engine, especially during the winter time.
I filled up the tank.
In the evening, Katya and I took Maya-san for a hole-digging walk.
Katya caught a slight cold in Tateshina, but she is getting much better.
I hope she will be OK in Karuizawa.
