I am informed by a long-time resident expat motorcyclist in Phhom Penh that the bike is a 1995 Honda Dream which has had some modifications to increase safety while carrying 15 mattresses.

Mattress man seems to be trying to ride up a small ridge at the side of the loose dirt road at a shallow angle. Let's hope he doesn't get too much wheel spin.

I wonder how many people it takes to help him get it loaded and balanced when he starts off.

I take my hat off to him.

He made it across the lump in the road, but he did touch his foot to the ground. Later, when he rode off a wooden bridge abutment his front wheel lifted a few inches so he rode the bike skillfully like a unicycle for ten or fifteen feet until he gracefully brought the front wheel back down on the dirt highway; he was like a Chaoyang Circus or Cirque du Soleil performer. He's a better rider than I am ... even if he doesn't wear a helmet, boots, and eye protection.

Well, since he's talking on the cell phone I'd say it falls under the UNsafe category.

Dont have a pic cuz i was the driver, but i just picked up my lady from work and totally had forgotten that i took my passenger pegs off. Had to ride across brooklyn, including highway, with her legs around my waist, leaning back to grab the grab handles. Hope someone got a pic, im sure we looked like a coupla clueless squids. Or a lost carnival side show act.

I like this picture. The longer you look at it, the more things you see, like the guy carrying his lunch bag. However, I don't see how the front wheel is staying down!

Oops, 3, no 4, sentences.

My opinion is there is all kinds of fail in this picture. The 990 Baja is barely touching his tennis shoes on the ground.
Rider 2 in addition to being a tool ( he was in TJ's in Austin loudly telling anyone in the nearby area who he knew) was wearing dress shoes with Jeans, a good helmet and jacket, but he had his BBD girlfriend on the back in a skimpy T shirt jeans and tennis shoes. the munchkin on the Baja asked if I wanted to take his "ride" for spin.
whats wrong with toeing or not flat footing it? that to me seems your really nit picking just to have something to bitch about...?
