My son looked at this and said "Wow, he'd have a hard time doing a wheelie.."

I sometimes wish we were this relaxed in the U.S. without so many rules governing everything we do. I know, we're safer as a result of not carrying our household on the back of our motorbikes, but STILL - we need to loosen up.

No wheelies...lol..but these guys did move pretty quickly. They zoomed in and out of the market all day stopping to pick-up and make deliveries.

It is interesting to see how others travel in different parts of the world. We have done some things with our son that we would never be able to do in the States.

That's an awesome photo!

And, for you american's commenting on this, next time you're on the freeway here, count the number of cars/vans passing you with furniture (particularly mattresses) strapped to them. Since I've lived here, I've been stumped as to why there always seems to be someone going somewhere with furniture on their car.
The same whackiness exists here, it's just in front of your nose, so you don't notice it :)

Love these Friday Travel pics, Lucia!

Wow! I would not be able to drive behind him though because I had a mattress almost hit me on a bridge...not a big fan of driving behind cars (or bikes in this case!) loaded up with their household goods!

Wow~ I've sighted similar crazyness on bikes,.. but more horizontal instead of vertical.. saw a biker with 4 kids loaded up behind him once.. This one looks like it'll be hard to keep a balance! It looks like it's ready to tip left or right any minute!

These shots make Photo Friday so much fun - just seeing the quirkiness that exists, well, just about everywhere!

I love these kinds of photos. Here in China we see this all the time but I'm never able to capture it on film!

Dominique said...

I do wonder how this rider keeps his balance!

Dana said...

You'll love Italy. I've seen similar loads, but never on a motorcycle.

Gad zooks! I've seen some piled high but that takes the cake!

Rachel Cotterill said...

Wow, that's quite a stack! :)
