While digging through some old lab reports I also found an interesting artifact from Taiwan, the country where I was teaching in 2001. I found a list of all the brands of scooters for sale in Taiwan. Like a book, each scooter name was followed by a secondary title, painted on the side of the scooter, that supposedly explained the scooter model name. See for yourself if the second part of the title clarifies the first part. Some of these machines are made by Yamaha or Honda but most are made by obscure companies found only in Asia:
- JOCKEY - Are riding with us
- JOCKEY Join us to ride it
- JOG - Is fascinating to you
- CHA CHA - Giving you the best sensation all I have
- HOLD ME - Enjoy the Lovely Satisfaction on the Road
- CABIN – With fresh air feeling
I found a blog with even more of these scooter model names.
