Pimp My Ride, Tenerife Stylee

Rusty Motorcycle

It’s difficult to decide whether the protagonist of this tale should get an reward for his resourcefulness, or whether he should be considered as a possible future winner of a Darwin Award.

Whatever, he may possibly already have set some sort of world record for the most number of motoring offences committed at any one time – all while still a minor.

What is is about moped users in Tenerife, for heaven’s sake? We’ve previously had a goat on a moped,  wearing a crash helmet and then there was the snake on a moped, without a helmet. This time there are no strange animals involved, you’ll be glad to hear, unless you count the reckless two-legged rider, of course …

In this latest report, the youngster was apprehended by the Civil Guard’s Traffic Division in Tenerife after he’d been observed circulating on his moped, on the hard-shoulder of the TF-5 highway, in sentido contrario (going the wrong way.)

The lad explained to the police patrol in Icod de los Vinos that he was on his way to the petrol station to fill up and inflate the tyres. (As you do, I guess!)

The report states that officers found him riding without a helmet, with no driving licence, no insurance, nor documentation for the vehicle, which also didn’t have a registration plate. The motorcycle didn’t have the necessary registration or documentation, as it had been assembled out of pieces of various others.
