    Saw this guy during yesterday morning's commute. He's either taking a major road trip, or it's moving day!

    IMG_1993.JPG I took this in Punjab last month. It was a bit more typical to see 3 guys but I didn't catch them on camera.

    (Side note: see those speakers on the Gurudwala? They start at 4am, ask me how I know)

    Wow...much better picture.

    It looks like a weestrom...am I right?

    He did put some serious thought into this...just didn't throw it on the bike.

    For about three years, I was in a living situation that required me to use a laundromat on the other side of town, and I only had a motorcycle (no car).
    Once a month, I would load up my K1200r with a months worth of dirty laundry strapped to the back across the panniers and on the tail in various duffle bags. Not quite as bad as the guy above, but it looked pretty ridiculous and unwieldy.
    I also used that bike to get the SJC/SFO whenever I traveled. I'd strap all my suitcases on the back too. That K bike was quite the mule.


    Perhaps he's on laundry day too, or heading to the airport.
