A big city as Madrid is getting collapsed everyday with thousands of cars. To relieve this craziness the authorities are imposing restrictive measures as the paying parking lots on the street (no single place is free within all central Madrid) and the restriction of traffic through the historic center. In addition they are promoting of the use of motorcycles giving them privileges such as the possibility of driving in the taxi-bus lane and permitting to perform some special turns.
As I was born in Barcelona, I'm used to see lots of motorbikes in the city, but here in Madrid there aren't many of them. It would be a relief for the traffic if a half of the car users drove motorbikes. With a motorbike you can do in 10 minutes what with a car would be 50 minutes. And best of all you can park the bike in front of the door without problem.
Also it would be a big reduction of solid particles to the atmosphere, helping to not to destroy the earth so quick as we are doing now. The next big thing will be to use electrical vehicles to move within the city with zero emissions.
Driving a motorbike, you get faster to your destination, help the planet and enjoy the views.
We did this panorama mounting the tripod on the scooter platform with the panosaurus head and holding it with my knees. Asia was behind me operating the remote control (as you can see on the picture) and I was holding the bike with my right hand and turning the pano-head with the left one.
