Rule #57: Do Not Ride Behind Morons



Quote:
You know better than to ride around trucks any longer than absolutely necessary, but a far more insidious danger is the unprofessional vacationista whose load-securing skills are often primitive. Whenever you see somebody towing a boat, a trailer, or especially a boat or a trailer with a bunch of other junk strapped onto or around it, expect this to happen and ride accordingly, i.e., nowhere around it. Especially not behind it. That goes double for the bane of Southern California motorists, the gardening truck, which is often a rolling obstacle course of weedwackers, rakes, and aluminum ladders yearning to break free. If you see someone holding a mattress to his roof with one hand out the window, know you’ll be the one most likely to take a nap if you’re silly enough to ride behind him

This rider got back up; we wish him a speedy recovery.

The first thing I thought when I saw that video was that I wouldn't be anywhere near that boat to begin with. Second thing I thought was I would've gone to the left. The third thing was that he wasn't wearing proper gear.

Four wheels move the body ... two wheels move the soul.

I agree with all of that. Hard to imagine what was going through the guy's head when he went right, but, his first mistake was following that thing.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.
