Well, what do I do with all these posties now?

The Japan scooter fans know that Japanese mail is delivered on the backs of Honda MD 50′s also known as “the postie“. The image above is of 500 posties once destined for Southeast Asia and the Middle East, but now waiting in vein. Why? Well, the buyers were paying in US dollars, which was fine until a couple of weeks ago when the Yen began to climb. It’s now at a 5% higher value; enough to ice this deal.
So, there they sit with their inviting seats shining bright in the warm winter sun… no one to twist their throttle… no one to honk their horn… Sad and unloved. :`(
Arigato to Akisan for the news from Japan.
