weekly photo challenge: warmth

Posted on

While travelling through China, it was very common to see these attached to the mopeds!

Something that will provide warmth …. these look like that they can keep the hands warm in winter! 🙂

      LOL – never thought about it as an invisible man riding it. But you are right, the positioning of the gloves like that does give the sense of there being hands inside 🙂
      Have a great upcoming weekend!

    Hahaha, that’s so smart I can’t believe we haven’t thought of it a long time ago!

      Can’t imagine NOT having those in cold weather… would get to the destination with frostbite??

      Happy New Year – thanks for your comment.

      Guess it makes sense when you have to hold onto handlebars in subzero temperatures!
      Happy New Year and hope 2015 brings you plenty of adventures!

    What a great idea. Perfect for this challenge too.

      Thank you 🙂 We wonder what happens when it is really hot weather though – maybe detachable ?? 😉

    Clever entry! I’m still thinking about it.

      Some of these abstract themes are tricky 🙂 Good luck with locating something you are happy with. Hope you have a great New Year!

    Ha ha ha, gloves attached to moped handle-bars – why did I not think of this during my years of riding a mini moped in India?

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      December 28, 2014 at 11:27 am

      LOL – well, maybe you can next time you are on a moped anywhere in the world in winter 🙂

      Thanks! It is a clever idea because you certainly don’t want frostbitten fingers 😉

    I saw them when I visited last time China as well. However when I noticed people using these it wasstill warm with 25degrees celsius in the morning!

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:

      Well, we were thinking the same… what happens in summer? Guess if its not detachable – they have to wear them as well because they can’t really drive without holding the handle bars, right? Hope you had a lovely Christmas 🙂 We have friends in Germany at the moment who are sharing on Facebook all the snow you are getting!

        Oh the snow is daly only in the southern part. Here in the north there is no snow at all however we have around zero degrees Celsius 🙂

      Not sure what creepy crawlies might think so as well 😉 We think of how the spiders lover our side mirrors in summer – wonder what tries to live in these!

      Hope you are well!, Mr K 🙂

    A genius thing to have on mopeds. If not for them, maybe some of our hands will be permanently stuck on the handlebars 😀 I hope Sydney’s summer is giving you Monkeys lots of warmth! It’s a bit cool in Melbourne, sadly, and we need to wear jackets.

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      December 28, 2014 at 11:32 am

      Hey there Mabel! Sydney summer is a little erratic still. Sunny days, then humidity, then thunder, then windy, then cool… It is highly irregular 🙂 We don’t know what to expect for tomorrow. Hope you are enjoying the festive season.

    Hubby drives a scooter here in Seoul, and these are a required accessory for survival for sure! Better would be the heated handlebars though I think! 😉 Happy holidays you 2! 😀

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      December 28, 2014 at 11:33 am

      Hahaha – heated handlebars! Shelley – you should patent that idea and run with it 🙂 We are sure someone who proposed heated car seats didn’t get the idea picked up for a while.

      It certainly is 🙂 Thank you for visiting!
