Those gave me quite a chuckle.

So many examples of people NOT thinking, before they leave, what might happen if the trip doesn't go as planned. The guy wiht the mirror is the best example I've ever seen. Small fender-bender and that guy's cut to ribbons.

What always amazed me...

is that there will be several of those riders on the road all at once. They're dodging and weaving thru traffic. When Uncle Sugar went me on my all expense paid vacation to I only had about 7 years riding experience under my belt. I knew I'd met my match when a 50cc bike passed my jeep on a dirt road, loaded with chickens, at speed. Rivals anything I'd seen in Rome or Greece.

There is no alternative. We are quick to judge other people to our own standards, but motorcycles are these people's only method of transportation.

These are from Cozumel and Isla Mujeras in Mexico:

Hi my name is Lo Hwang, I make 50 cents a day. I'm sorry I cannot afford a pickup truck or ATTGATT, I can barely afford to put gas in my honda, but it sure beats walking! I apologize if my poverty has upset your delicate ADV sensibilities.

Not really overloaded, but I hauled a 33" mud tire off my LJ Rubicon the other day. Got some odd looks on the way to work.
