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?

And how many tires do you know that can take that kind of weight?

Typhoon Bopha killed 647 people and caused crop damage worth 8.5 billion pesos ($210 million). the most intense storm to hit the Philippines this year wiped out about 90 percent of three coastal towns in Davao Oriental province and buried an entire town in neighboring Compostela Valley province under mud.
