The Amazing Vietnam Motorbikes

Got these in an email from cousin Nick. There are pictures of motorbikes in Vietnam and their various uses. Having been to Vietnam myself, I can personally vouch that the pictures are very real in Vietnamese everyday life.

My own personal experience was seeing a motorbike delivering a full sized fridge balanced precariously in pillion. That one really ultimate. Too bad, I didn't have my digital camera with me back then or my picture would have trumped all of the following below.
Nevertheless, still a very amusing set of photos.

V_icks: Yah man... you won't find me messing with this guy!

sunflower: Really wasted, I didn't take picture of the motorbike balancing the full size fridge when I was there in Oct 2005.

RIS: Balance carefully lor, Left side weight equal right side weight lor. I heart pain the suspension system though. Confirm spoil liao.
