Ok, so I was riding today and was coming up to a red light, and I see something bouncing towards me kinda fast. It kinda spooked me, but I stopped for the light and the darn things hits me in the leg. When it had bounced off, and laying on the ground I see that it is a gas cap. I'm like What the...? There are no cars that I noticed it could have popped off of, so I'm not sure where it came from.

It made me laugh though.:laughing

SO...what strange things have ya'll been hit by? Other than a car or the pavement.

A Wendys salad bowl, an Arbys soda cup(the LARGE :mad size), a few cigarette butts, plenty of bugs, and 1 real close call from a blackbird.(the actual bird, not the bike)

Oh and an empty plastic trashcan from a guy hauling untied trash... he was already pulled over ready for my redemption, and he got it too.

My older brother got nailed by a peacock in the backroads of washington. :laughing

Cigarette butts, lit ( :mad ) A couple of cups, dodged a bundle of roofing shingles (damn ******** down here don't know how to tie anything down. :rant ), and dodged a piece of PVC pipe as it rolled towards me. I've been pegged by a clump of Louisiana red clay. That shit hurt! :rant

I got smacked dead in my new visor by a damned seagull. Scratched the hell out of it:rant


Had a Wal-Mart bag cover my headlight while I was doing 75 on the tollway and been hit by a ton of garbage. Had a bitch throw a McD's cup, prolly over 1/2 full, out and splash all over me when it hit the ground.

I'm guessing he wasn't wearing a full face helmet? I tried to spit gum out of my mouth once with my full face on and I found it on my crotch when I got where I was going.:shake

Myself, Gixster, and The Bone where headed to Dallas from OKC, as we were nearing Dallas, traffic was starting to thicken, we were in the fast lane going with the flow of traffic going roughly 80 ish. We were riding in a staggered formation. We were following a car, when all the sudden it ran over a plastic bumper like that would go on the front of a van. When it ran over the bumper, it kicked it up in the air, it first hit Gixster's bike near the headlight and deflected it over to the right where it hit The Bone. From there it got deflected back to me, who was following behind. I somewhat saw it coming, I got down a little bit, but still didn't have a whole lot of time to react. It hit me about forehead height. I've got scuffs on the top of my shield and on my lid from where it hit me.


There was a guy in a white Eclipse who was behind us that saw the whole thing, after that happened he pulled up beside me, gave me a big :thumb with a smile that you could kinda tell meant "god I'm glad I didn't have to run over you guys."


By far probably one of the most frightening moments I've had on the bike . :eek :eek :eek

Extension ladder on the 405, 2x4's on I-5, beer bottle on the 110 (bounced off my front fender and hit my helmet) and some asshole in a Corolla threw a coffee cup with saucer at me ( Who the fuck takes a saucer with him?) on Sepulveda Blvd.

God I miss LA.

NOT.
