Wheelie - ZIL-131 Russian Logging truck - Phonsavan (Laos)

This russian-made ZIL-131 6x6 logging truck was loaded with very heavy and long logs, so the center of gravity of the gear was close to the rear wheels. When the truck had to pass through a small ditch on the side of the road, the front of the truck took up quite high. The truck was not going fast, but it needed a lot of power to pass that ditch (you can see the black smoke from the engine roaring). I was riding my motorbike on the road when I saw that. It was fun to watch and i was able to make a good capture of that amazing image!
