The moped is Vietnam’s cow – it works all year round, on all terrain, and with any task.
One task the moped is especially good at is carrying goods. Here are just a few of the strangest things we saw on the back of a moped.
1. See it to bee-lieve it
Well how else will they get to their destination? Fly individually? This guy didn’t want to get stung for taking that chance.
2. The Iceman
Not Kimi Raikkonen, just this guy delivering a large cube of slowly melting ice to a bar.
3. Do it yourself
Building materials are a pretty common sight on the back of a bike, many with trailers like this.
4. You’re going bananas
I love it when my bananas taste of small moped engine fumes.
5. Playing chicken
Again, it’s better than making the bird fly. And you’ve got a supply of eggs for the long trip too.
6. China in your hand
With all the weaving in and out of traffic, this is a pretty bold move.
7. Handle with care
These boxes of glasses are being well treated, albeit the wrong way round.
8. Water ya doing?
All that bottled water has to get around the small streets somehow.
9. A fruitful endeavor
Just off to the market, as you do.
10. The Ghost of Tom Load
Judging by the size of the pallet on the back there was a pretty sizeable load on here.
11. Whistle while you work
If you read carefully, the box clearly says ‘do not drop’. Judging by the way this is secured, I’m pretty sure that instruction meant nothing.
12. Overnight stay
The perfect place for a pillow and clothes.
13. Cut the crap
And here’s how toilet paper is transported.
14. Blooming hell
Bad picture, but the passenger here is carrying a bouquet of flowers under a plastic sheet.
There’s more tree than moped here.
16. Quite a bit of luggage
For one day, these magnificent little motorcycles had to carry all of our luggage as well as our weighty frames.
17. Fried rice
In the heat of the sun, this uncovered rice is going to be cooked on the back of this moped.
18. A crisp day
All that potato goodness almost in reach…
BONUS! The mobile bomb
Flammable gas? Check. Direct sunlight? Check. A complete nonchalance from the driver? Check. What could possibly go wrong…
