Loaded bikes

I love pictures of bikes with crazy loads. Sure some of these have been posted before, but here it goes anyhow:











Have you got any to post?

A love images like these. They can really be a lesson to "developed" nations. So many people drive vehicles like PUs and SUVs around because they 'need' to be able to do this or do that with them. In reality, the functionality of the vehicle is rarely utilized beyond getting a single occupant from point A to point B.

What we may call ingenuity, most of the world probably calls common sense. If gas prices get really high, these images may begin to emerge from our own communities.

I've seen these photos before but there always enjoyable to view over and over again. My touring bike is nowhere near as over loaded as these pictures but I still haul a lot of stuff for a self-supported tour. Here is a recent photo of my loaded touring bike.
