Show off your favorite mode of transportation, make it flashy! This should be easy if you own a nice boat, motorcycle or spaceship, but it's even better if you manage to make your battered bicycle or your oldest shoes look like a rapper's pimpmobile.

circa 1985. Mayan ruins Tikal, Guatemala. Two intrepid young lads from Europe bought them in Mexico and planned to drive them into Guatemala then back. These were either "CZ" or "Jawa" brand 2-stroke motorcycles made in Czechoslovakia. Highly regarded for ... well for nothing actually. Cheap to buy, cheap to fix and would run on any grade of gasoline. Clever/desperate riders became expert at substituting automobile bits/pieces (especially electrical components!) to fix them on the road.
