Sorry, that was just a tune that popped into my head, and now I can't get rid of it, Nancy Sinatra's old "These boots were made for walking" song.

But forget the song, read the text below in the Reuters captions. Only 89K new cars were registered, while 257K motorcycles were registered. That's more than 3 times the number of motorcycles sold over cars.

Jakarta's governor FauziBowo plans to regulate vehicle use in the capital, especially motorcycles, after Indonesia's Transport Department revealed data on registered vehicles in the capital reached 6.7 million units. According to the data, 89,317 new cars were registered in the first half of this year and motorcycle registrations increased to 257,681 units. REUTERS/Beawiharta
