    Just a little poll


    I was thinking as I was driving into work this morning. What would happen If I hit one of those HUGE rubber grommet thingamajigs? Yea know the ones that go on the bottom of an orange cone so trucks don't blow them over....they are all over Rt. 3 with all the construction going on. Which leads me to my question?

    What is the biggest object you have successfully run over? I think the biggest for me was some tire shrapnel from a 18 wheeler.

    Just a little poll

    Pine branch that fell out of a tree, it was right there, no time to even react, which is what prolly saved my ass as I rode straight across it at 60mph± it was about 20 feet long, (completly crossed the road) main stem was about 6" dia and about 8 feet across.

    I have also succesfully navigated across several hundred feet of black ice

    I hit one of the rubber grommet things they put on the traffic cones on Rt. 3 doing about 60mph and the bike didn't even twitch.

    It was night and it just happened too fast, otherwise I dodge them during the day.

    Incase you didn't know, those"rubber grommett thingys" are made from the sidewalls of old truck tires. So it would theoretically be the same as riding over truck tire bits.

    One dead animal of unknown origin at about 75 MPH. Stonner rode right up to it and then swerved at the last second, turning around to watch the show. I caught about 3 feet of air and kept going. Bastard...

    Hmmm...I can't think of the largest object I've hit on the bike. But I have rearended a BUNCH of different cars in my big truck. The best 'show' being a mid-90's Olds Calais. The front of my truck ended up in the passenger compartment of her car. Not a pretty sight, and almost lost my license and truck 'cuz of it. But man! What a show! Musta had about a thousand people standing around watching that one!
