Motorcyclists to the rescue in Haiti

In the midst of the devastation in Haiti, I've read numerous reports where motorcycles have been used effectively in the chaos that followed in the wake of the earthquake.

With roads clogged, debri blocking roadways, traffic congestion from other cars and people and mayhem everywhere, motorcycles are being used as the only effective mode of transportation where cars can't go. Motorcycles are being used to carry in supplies to demolished city centers and they are being used as transportation for city officials to survey the area as they try to bring things back together. With communication systems down, motorcycles are also being used to carry messages back and forth in the chaos.
