    Picture Story

    Last week we were riding on NC Rt 28 between Deals Gap and Fontana Damn.  Sweet curvy road following a stream through the mountains.  We got stuck behind a guy riding a Harley with a gigantic piece tied to the back of the bike.



    We probably could have found a way to pass him but we spent time trying to figure out what he had strapped to his bike.  Coming around a curve we suddenly encountered a road crew blocking one lane.  It wasn't an emergency stop but it was unexpected.  As the guy came to a stop things didn't quite work out.



    His bike was stopped when he tumbled off.  He was OK.  The amazing thing was that the gigantic load on back did not come loose.  Guys from the road crew ran over and picked up the bike.

    Uffffff! What a bad luck.

    In the end it is known who carried in that gigantic bag?
    I would carry a lot of weight in the bag and as we rounded the curve the weight of the bag beat the bike.

    This is like one of those movies such as Pulp Fiction or Ronin where everything revolves around a mysterious package and you never find out what it was.  Of coarse, not quite as much drama involved here.

    I wonder what his shoulder felt like the next day?   Must have been heavy whatever it was.  Maybe trying to get out of alimony payments.  LOL

    Correct. That shoulder is sure to hurt.
