    So, can your KTM do this?

    Two 75 pound bales of hay. Went about 75 kms, no problem. Used a few bungi cords and wrapped with the blue tarp to avoid suspicion. Actually passed a local RCMP and didn't have a problem. I couldn't see out my mirror though and couldn't tell if anyone was behind me.

    _Thanks to Hector for taking the photo - he was returning back to Vancouver from a 14 day ride to the Yukon on his Beemer! - this was taken between Whistler and Squamish._

    Actually, I've seen a number of photos from Asia with bikes loaded with all manner of goods and service personnel - you have too, they are all over the innertubes. Yeah, we have a lot to learn from our neighbors who must make do with what they have. Fortunately I didn't learn a valuable life lesson on this trip, like pricey ticket or a bale bailing at 100 kmph into oncoming traffic. Those bales were solid and secure! :clap and nobody died...

    -1 if compared to the picture below. I was a daily passenger right in front of a beloved & most skillful rider on earth.

    For a few years, with all kinds of weather (except snow) in a hectic & congested traffic that millions of people simply just refuse or can not walk across a street, none of us even had a single scratch.

    AND it was a tiny Vespa. What a wonderful rider!!! :))))))))))).
