Yeah, that's a 20lb. bag of Iams on there. Cats wouldn't let me be until I went and picked some up.

Not on the Wee but a Keg of Bear on a XS650 back in the early eighties. I had a back rest and only carried it a few miles. i still dream about dropper it and watching it roll past me down the road. Wish I had a picture.

PS: A 70 pound bag of dog food on the passenger seat makes the bike more stable in cross winds.

I don't have a picture, but I once hauled a passenger and a celing fan on my '82 Honda V-45 Sabre.

Just recently my wife had her crutches on her motorcycle with her. Now that gets you some weird looks.

P.S. It was a sprained ankle from riding off road on one her other motorcycles.

I came close to a weird one late this afternoon. Had gone to Lowe's for a replacement locking bolt for a pivot pin on my tractor FEL. No trouble finding the bolt and locking nut but then remembered that I'd just broken a toilet seat bracket. The bracket wasn't separately replaceable on that particular seat, but a replacement seat was cheap enough. However, the toilet seat would have been too large for my top case and I didn't have any decent bungees with me, so buying and hauling a toilet seat will have to wait. Guess I missed the opportunity for somebody to call me a Porta Potty...

I routinely have my tile spade and Sandvik strapped to my bike

once I hauled 2 space heaters about 200 miles, on my SV, I've hauled 4" square x 42" long granite boundary markers

and a watermelon will fit in a pelican 1550

I ride with a cane quite often, always when I travel long distance
