  • Crazy Ass Happening On My Ride Today


    I was out riding today enjoying a sunny dry day. Something we haven't seen much lately here in New Hampshire

    Cruising along on a nice back road when I saw a truck with what looked like a horse trailer pulling out of a road on the left and making a left hand turn so he would be in front of me going down the road. I slowed down to let him go. Before the truck completed the turn into my lane, one of the rear doors of the trailer swung open and out fell a cow in the middle of the road. Of course I had to stop. There's a friggin' cow laying in the middle of the road! The guy driving the truck stopped too. The cow just laid there for a minute then slow and very wobbly got up on all fours. She was clearly dazed. I went over to help but I don't know anything about cows. The driver got there after me and he got the cow to walk. The cow slowly came back to it's senses and walked back into the trailer. 15 minutes later, were up and running again.

    Thankfully the cow was OK. It was a good thing that it happened while the truck was still going very slow pulling onto the road. Glad this didn't happen while we were going the speed limit (or more) down the road. I stayed a pretty good distance behind the trailer until they turned off. I seen some things happen on the road over the years while out riding. But this is definitely a 1st I never expected.

    Wow! I had a guy lose his boat trailer from the hitch right in front of our building as I was pulling the bike out for a ride. The trailer was dragging on the ground, held on only by the safety chains. As the pickup truck stopped, the winch post of the trailer rammed into the tailgate of the (beautiful) truck, denting it.

    Helped him reload the trailer onto the truck, properly this time. The guy hadn't had it all the way down over the hitch ball when he loaded it up. Turns out this is the SECOND time he's done this over the years. Lucky he was running under 30 MPH when it jumped off.

    Glad to hear the cow was OK! Highway speeds would have been tragic to see that unfold. Nice to hear you're seeing some sunshine now in the middle of July...

        Had a friend encounter a Black Angus bull in the road on a dark night on an unlit backroad. It ended as ugly as it possibly could.

          Back in 1979 I bought a brand new Chevy Impala 2 dr. coupe, dark blue with a landau vinyl roof and wire hubcaps. Took it to a field party that weekend out in the country and had a great time getting impaired so my brother drove it home to his place where I was staying the night. On that drive home speeding along on a two lane highway # 25 a horse appeared on the road in front of us, the only reason we didn't hit it was we spotted it's silhouette in an oncoming cars headlights, my bro jammed on the brakes hard then off again as we careened around it on the gravel shoulder, I thank my lucky stars he didn't drink as much as me that night.

            Damn those older 2 dr coups had long heavy doors.

          I had a '76 and a '77 Caprice, really liked the '76. At a stop light and some DA hit me head-on in the '76 and totaled the thing. Bought a '77 and hit a deer that required a new front clip to be installed... Loved both cars but it didn't end well for either of them.
