And we are concerned about whether the motorcycle is overloaded in a top case ...  :005:

A straight line is only the shortest connection between two curves ...

I suspect it's balsa tree. Even so seems a big load for offroading. Another benefit of this bikes is their seaworthiness - sure they floats well  :001:

Yes, I also think it's balsa wood, I couldn't explain other everything else. But freshly felled balsa also weighs an average of 150-200 KG per cubic meter.

And that's why the knowledge of local market is so important for structure analysis  :001:

As far I know trucks and other vehicles oriented to Russian, Asian, African and South America market has generous safety factors in their chasis - engineers knows that overloading is something common. So the vehicles are built with this idea in mind and they are more sturdy than their European siblings. Probably the bikes on a video are local versions of some japan trail bikes.

I would like to see what happens with Ducati trail models in this circumstances  :745:
