I think we've all carried a bit more than we planned on our motorcycles, at one time or another. A parcel which we got at the post office, something we bought at the spur of the moment, etc and then had to carry home on the motorcycle....

Well, we are nothing compared to Ricardo Kuhn, master motorcycle cargo transporter. Ricardo lives in the San Francisco area, and runs Motomacondo. He doesn't have a car, since he prefers motorcycles. He often needs to go and pickup or deliver consignments, and the only way he can do it, is stack stuff on his motorcycle !

On top of that, he's a passionate bicyclist, and often needs to bring his bicycles, so he's adapted his motorcycle to carry his bikes.

So if you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, and you see a motorcycle stacked with cargo and/or bicycles, chances are it's Ricardo Kuhn. Give him a wave, and get out of his way..... we should be seeing more from Ricardo on these pages shortly as he as promised to write some interesting "how-to" articles, like his first one some time ago {link}.
