    And here are a few reasons why...

    I could never get across this bridge, obviously too many missing boards.

    I can't carry a refrigerator in the upright position. And laying it down is very dangerous.
    [​IMG]

    Pigs in a blanket make my upholstery smell bad.
    [​IMG]

    When fording is not an option... well I just don't see me fast-roping across the rapids with my 'burb fastened securely to my inner thighs.
    [​IMG]

    Child safety seats are PIA to install correctly.
    [​IMG]

    Difficult to cover and conceal.
    [​IMG]

    Not enough beverage containment aparati.
    [​IMG]

    There is never enough additional seating.
    [​IMG]

    I have to rent or borrow a trailer every time I want to get a parts vehicle brought home.

    [​IMG]

    Huge blind spots.
    [​IMG]

    I can't decide how much lift I need to install larger tires without trimming the fenders. Will 35" tires fit with a 4" lift? I just don't know.
    [​IMG]

    I can only hunt and fish for game that will fit inside the cargo area. It's very restrictive to an outdoorsman such as myself.

    Some things just don't need to be in the passenger compartment.

    My 'burb only seats 5 without the third row seat.

    AND...

    You have to run what you have. But most of those pics look a little scary.

    It's even beter seeing that stuff in person. I can remember getting on a moped in Thailand with 5 other guys from the ship......not sure how we did it though.
    I bet the beer was the bonding force that kept us all together.

    I have a book somewhere about Asians and their Bikes. I think its based in Thailand. I need to look for that. My mom works for a company that does adoptions and sponsorship in Asian countries. She has seen probably 50%+ of the above in person(especially whole families on one motorcycle). I can't wait until I get the chance to go.
