Stable and stylish tuk-tuks!

I was in Bangkok (thanks to wifey and her company :-) ), and was fascinated by these small public carriers on the road. They are colorful, play loud rock music, are decorated right from the hood to the silencer to the wheels, have cool looking drivers, they sport silencers whose sound are a treat to a "thump" lover's ears.

More importantly, apart from their visual appeal, what I liked about them is that they seem to be lot more stable given their larger wheelbase and lower height than the desi auto-rickshaws. Sure, they seem to have put some good thought into the stability of these 3-wheeled 'rockets' on Bangkok roads.

Here are a few pictures, hope you enjoy them...
