4. Motorcycle Luggage


I’ve always felt that there should be a TV show called Those Amazing Humans to showcase all the stupid things that people do. Yeah, I know that the Darwin Awards cover much of this, but I think the human species shows remarkable ingenuity when it comes to doing incredibly dumb things. Motorcyclists, because they are members of the human race and subject to the same foibles, could supply many episodes of the show. With this photo, however, I rarely think about the person pulling the suitcase. Instead, my thoughts – and sympathies – go to the bag’s poor wheels and bearings. Imagine the passenger’s confusion when the bike finally stops at the departing passenger’s drop-off zone at the airport only to discover his bag is smoking and the molten plastic of the wheels is gluing itself to the tarmac.

    I enjoy these silly 10 lists but this one sets a new standard. Great job.

  • Alexander Pityuk

    I don’t know if it really fits here in this list, but i think it’s just too good to ignore it.

    • Evans Brasfield

      A similar one almost made it into the list. 🙂

    I’m not sure what exactly the bike in #5 is (2000-ish CR250 set up for asphalt?), but I REALLY want to swing a leg over it!

      Cool! As I wrote, it is the one that inspired this whole top 10 list.
