    Can You Carry a Load?

    I took these photos in 1998 in Seoul, Korea. It's amazing how much these little 125cc Hyosungs carry every day. One guy even has a mobile bird store.

    yup, its always amazed me how much they can carry on machines of the size most often found in the orient. When I was in Thailand in the 60's you would see entire families on one machine as several folks have posted images of here, and I used to see men peddling bikes with several hundred pounds of blocks of ice stacked well above their heads in Bangkok since many of the sidewalk cafe's and food stores still had old style ice-boxes rather than electric refrigerators.

    There was a thread awhile ago about what folks had carried on their machines over the years, pretty fun stuff. A little ingenuity goes a long way.

    Ok, but how much stuff have you yourself put on your personal machine?



    There's a 1961 R60/2 under there someplace.

    Nice shot there, Marco! You really got my best angle. Can I use that as a wallpaper on my computer?

    A lot of people say "ride it like you stole it". I load it like it was a rented mule.

    Wait'll you see how I load up the R52 for this year's CCC&BBQ.

    I thought you'd appreciate the angle. It was either that one or this one where one could make the case that you could be carrying a load.

    Alas, I can't find the full res versions and may have lost them in a computer swap somewhere along the line.

    Hmmmm, I guess I wasn't over packed after all.

    packed for a camp-out

    That was before I added the food cooler to the rear rack and you can't quite see the full tank panniers.
