Iranian farmers take two goats for a cruise on their motorbike

We thought we'd seen it all at MotorbikeTimes when we discovered YouTube sensation, Stich the biker dog, and his owner had their motorcycle stolen last week. But you'll have to rub your eyes in disbelief by what we've stumbled upon this week; two goats on a motorbike - yes you did read that right.

Captured on camera by a passenger in a passing car in Iran, the hilarious footage shows two Iranian farmers cruising on their motorbike with two goats on their laps. Ignoring their own safety, the men decide to do the courteous thing of lending one of the goat passengers a helmet whilst the other one is left dangling uncomfortably over the edge.

It is believed the two men were taking their goats back to their farm, but we can't help but think it would have been easier to move the animals in a different mode of transport - maybe they wanted to experience the thrill of the open road.

To see the bizarre footage of the goat motorbike ride, click on the player below:
