You can put anything on your motorbike in Bali as long as it fits (this is true as the time this post is written : September 19th 2009). Like this photo. There was a bunch of baloons for sale carried on a motor bike. There were so many baloons so it occupy half of the road. Just like the size of a car.
If you driveor ride a motor bike in Bali, you need to be ready for the unexpected traffic such as this. (pst, this is a final warning to you, next time you will probably see something more strange than this!).
Here is a list of what people carry on motor bike in Bali:
- 4 to 5 passengers (father, mother, son, daughther, and puppy).
- box of chickens
- goat (has to lie in between two persons)
- fire wood piled to five meters high
- anything, even baby elephant
I never seen the last item, but theoritically it is possible. :)
