25 Ridiculous And Crazy Things Carried On A Bike

While motorcycles like a Harley Davidson or Yamaha may seem like a leather-clad, cool guy’s form of transit in the West, anyone who has traveled to Africa or Asia knows a motorbike is a lifeline for millions of people. Beyond just a means of conveyance, motorbikes are prized items, demarcating people who can afford one and those who can’t. (The line for people who can afford cars is on a whole different level.) Motorbikes are often shared between families, used to transport said families (sometimes with up to five or more people on a single bike at a time) and used to transport goods from the farm to market or anywhere else.

In this list, we’ve cruised around to find the most ridiculous things people have ever carried on the back of a motorbike. While carrying more than two people may seem wild enough for some delicate sensibilities, true motorbike experts have honed their craft and are able to carry loads many times the weight of the bike itself. You’ll be flat-out amazed at the massive loads some people can carry – from 1,000 eggs to a mobile shop on wheels to even an entire car on the back of a bike. Prepare to be amazed with this list of the 25 Ridiculous And Crazy Things Carried On A Bike.
