Jailbait Ford is Dead! Adjusting to pedestrianism.
If anyone's interested, we know what motorbicycle James May used.

Who here likes vietnamese food? Reading this has made me hungry for a bowl of pho and lemongrass now.

Must have been part of a challenge - most outlandish thing you can carry?
Certainly it's common place in Vietnam and Cambodia to see all sorts of thing on the back of tiny bikes - I saw furniture, livestock, haystacks and whole families being carried.

Either that, or part of the challenge was to incorporate a boat somehow........

Hence Clarkson making a boat out of his bike and Hammond carrying a boat on the back of his.....:hmm:

To quote a SIARPC (Sanjiv, Sanjay?)

yeah, I know that. I just don't see how you can transport those with a tiny bike. Do you just pile the pigs on top of each other?

Ah sorry - thought it was a language thing. The pigs were in baskets - kind of panniers on the back. Yhe goats were in a big crate and we also saw a little child clutching two piglets while clinging on to his mother!

Who needs a lorry when you can use a moped :D

Looks like the Vietnam episode is going to be 12x08, the last of the run.
