Motorcycles are the number one method of transport in asia. Not only are they fast and capable of driving through crowded streets, apparently they can hold over 2,000 pounds of weight! There seems to be zero limitations to the amount of crap you can throw on these bad boys.
Extended families? No problem.
An entire crop’s worth of rice? Bring it on.
Even a whole sports team of grown men can fit on one of these if you stack them properly. It’s definitely something you need to see to believe.
Make sure to check out Hans Kemp’s photography book Bikes of Burden if you’re into more of this.
