28 August, 2015 - We Have A Record! Most Pillions On A Motorcycle - Incredible
Record number of motorcycle pillions
#Crowded #Pillions #Records - This has got to be a record, and I don't even think they were trying to go for one. The most number of people on a motorcycle (that wasn't a stunt bike). I counted 14, maybe there are more, since some are well hidden. The feat itself is amazing and incredible, but what's even more impressive is the solidity of the motorcycle and the bike's tires. Amazing.


24 August, 2015 - Stuffed In A Taxi, A Motorcycle Taxi
Bangui Motorcycle Taxi
Central African Republic  flag

New Motorcycle Hearse
#Hearse #Funny #Panniers - We've seen motorcycle hearses before. There are more and more of them, some of them very elaborate contraptions, some of them simpler. But all of them either involve a sidecar or a trailer.

Here is a Kawasaki with a double body carrier, a two-for-the-price-of-one motorcycle hearse....either that or someone really needed a lot of space to carry stuff.


23 October, 2014 - And The Father Of The Year Award Goes To ...
Father of The Year Award
#Idiots #ATGATT #Morons - ... this douche bag. I can't tell from the photo if there is an actual baby in the baby carrier, but even if there isn't, it's still a very dumb move. The photo was taken somewhere in the Middle East.

#Cargo #Crazy #Funny - Back to being amazed. This is part 6 of a series of photos of motorcycle and scooters carrying anything you can imagine. These bikes are truly versatile, and can carry the craziest things you can image. Some of them are pretty cruel considering they are transporting live animals (just look at the first one), but that's life.


31 July, 2014 - There Is Never Enough Space On A Motorcycle
Never enough space on motorcycles
#Funny #Panniers #Cargo - No matter what you do, there never is enough space on your motorcycle to bring things with you. Even with panniers, topcase, tank bags, etc ... it's never enough. Until now..... these panniers will even fit a dead body.

Motorcycle Milk Delivery India
India flag
#India #MilkDelivery - For those of you who were born in the previous century (and then some), the "No Milk Today" was a famous song back then (and today it can be heard as part of the Sons of Anarchy TV series, year 3). But it seems to be applicable to India, where it seems motorcycles deliver milk.

#Colombia #ATGATT #Cargo - Do you think this is safe? Really?

Overcrowded, no ATGATT. The only thing I am always amazed at are the motorcycles themselves. They seem to take any punishment, any weight, any stress and keep on riding.

Scooters and a ladder
#Funny #Fail - Of course nothing is going to go wrong. Let's face it, scooters were invented to transport big ladders.

Dominican Republic Moto taxi
Dominican Republic flag
#Taxi #Photo #Confusing - When I saw this photo I was about to bin it when I suddenly realized that the photo was confusing. According to the text, the photo is that of a motorcycle taxi rider and a passenger with her purchased goods. But look closely at the photo. A left arm is going about the passenger's head, while another left arm is holding a sack. Or is it that there is a third person on the motorcycle?


5 August, 2013 - Gone On A Plum Assignment - Taking My Baby With Me
Gone Motorcycle Ride With Baby
#Funny #Parenting #Fail - I have received over the weekend a nice plum assignment from one of the magazines I work for. It is pretty last minute stuff, so I did not have the time to prepare many articles for your amusement, and the return date is a bit up-in-the-air as well.

I hope to be back by next weekend, so normal regular articles will appear by then. In the mean time, I have not forgotten you, and you will receive some amusing and/or informative motorcycle articles during the week. I am traveling with PC, so if anything comes up, and I have the time, I will let you know.

On this trip, I have taken my baby with me (although my SWMBO does not like being called "baby")...


18 July, 2013 - Everything But The Kitchen Sink, But A Dog
Everything But Sink Plus Dog
#Funny #Cargo #Loaded - Some people really want to carry everything with them on their motorcycle. And I mean everything. Guess if you are going on holidays, or moving house, you have very little choice if you only have a motorcycle as means of transportation.

But a kayak, bicycle and a dog???

Pakistan Crowded Motorcycle
Pakistan flag
I've been truly amazed how many people can fit on a motorcycle, and not for a dare, but in real day-to-day life. take this family for example in Pakistan: 6 (six) people on one smallish motorcycle. I already have problems when my (rather skinny) SWMBO sits behind me and moves around a bit.

It's an example of a) riding skills and b) the motorcycle manufacturers.

Here are 31 photos of motorcycles carrying anything, even the kitchen sink..

We all know, or should know, that the heavier your motorcycle, the more fuel you'll consume.

And even in Afghanistan, petrol is at a premium, so I guess bikers are doing what they can to lighten their loads....


19 December, 2012 - Record Number Of People On A Motorcycle
Record Most People On 1 Motorcycle
Guinness World Records logo
In the past we've often shown you photos of a lot of people on a motorcycle. Usually it's because they have no choice.. it's the only way they can get anywhere. The largest number of "passengers" we've counted so far has been 13.

But on November 2010 a bunch of soldiers in India set out to break the world record of the number of people on a motorcycle. And the number? 54! On a Royal Enfield 500 motorcycle...........

13 December, 2012 - Philippines: Testimony Of Motorcycle Maker’s Quality
Philippines Crowded motorcycle
Philippines flag
When I see these frequent photos of several people (usually more than 5) riding on the same motorcycle, I can't but help wonder: a) how dangerous it is and b) how incredibly well built the motorcycle is to withstand this kind of punishment.

Have you considered how your motorcycle, be it a Ducati, BMW, KTM or Triumph would hold up with 7 people riding on it for miles of bad roads?


4 December, 2012 - OMG! This Guy Is So Unsafe!
Phoning and Riding Bad
OMG, what is this guy thinking. Can't he see he's riding his motorcycle so unsafe? I mean... is he blind or what? His center stand is way too low to be safe. It's scraping the road. That is a serious error, and could be very dangerous.

He should be paying more attention. Motorcycles are dangerous, and riding with center stands scraping the ground is not the way to do it.

There are times when riding your motorcycle, you know that you need to ride real carefully. Like when it's snowing. Or during heavy wind. Or broken road surfaces.....

Old fashion milk delivery... not matter what the weather is, and on a motorcycle.

Motorcycle Goat Transport

It's all about the caption. Photos can say 1,000 words, but a one -liner in a caption can ignore 10,000.

I just gulped my coffee when I saw the caption under this photo.... "goat ... to entertain their relatives and friends?".

China Courrier Service

Wow, that's an impressive figure; 35,000 express delivery companies in China, most using motorcycles and scooters.

No wonder the likes of DHL can't cope (the fact that their customer service is nonexistent doesn't help either).

16 December, 2011 - Motorcycles And Their Computers
Motorcycle Computer
Technology has become a big part of motorcycles, they are used to control everything except the steering part (and that'll happen one of these days). They control engine, ABS, suspension, windscreen, etc.

Thankfully, the computer technology has shrunk enough to make them not noticeable. But one manufacturer is struggling to keep the computer technology down to a manageable size....

Egypt Gas Canisters and Pillions
I guess if you got to do it, you got to do it, but bringing several passengers, plus a dangerous cargo on your motorcycle is not a smart thing to do.

But then, if you don't have a choice....


5 December, 2011 - Egypt: Family On Motorcycle At Protests - Brave

Are they brave, stupid or dedicated about their freedom... riding with so many on a motorcycle during protests can be any of these choices.

I choose for brave and dedicated.


30 November, 2011 - On My Way Back, Guess What I Picked Up?
Carrying a donkey on a motorcycle
If everything went according to plans, I should be heading back to the office from Paris, after the Paris Motorcycle Exhibition 2011.

As usual, you get loaded down with press packs from any self-respecting motorcycle manufacturer, so I guess I should be something like this:

26 May, 2011 - A 5 Wheels Motorcycle?

You've got to ask yourself what is going on here.

Is the scooter a backup for the motorcycle? Is it a break-down service for small motorcycles and scooters? Is it a his and hers thing?


23 May, 2011 - 34 Motorcycles Carrying A Lot Of People
Motorcycle Loaded With Many People
Most bikers prefer riding their motorcycle alone, but having a pillion is okay. It's a bit more tricky, since the weight of the pillion, when shifting can upset the balance of the motorcycle.

Having two pillions is very difficult, so what do you think about riding a motorcycle or scooter with more than 2 pillions?

Here are 34 photos of motorcycles and scooters carrying a hell of a lot of people.... scary!

For those of you who have to haul lots of stuff around, you know that a pick-up truck not only is great vehicle, but it looks good. But if you're into motorcycles and not cages, then you might think you're out of options.

However, in Asia, motorcycle pick-ups (or are they called Pick-up Motorcycles) are as common as their cage counterparts in North America. No matter if you're transporting cargo or people, there's a motorcycle for it.

Here are 45 examples of motorcycle pick-ups.

Looks to me that 3rd World-ridden motorcycles are stronger than their Western counterparts.

24 May, 2010 - First Real Motorcycle Hearse
Long Motorcycle Hearse
It's amazing the length we'll go to for a decent burial.

A company in New Zealand has developed the first true motorcycle hearse. Not one wit a sidecar, or a trailer, but a real motorcycle, just lengthened a bit, and a hydraulic system for the casket.

Powered by a Harley engine, you'll get buried in style (and probably noise).
