I was passing a transport truck while out riding yesterday. I was on a passing section that gently turned to the right. So, I was leaned over on overtaking when from around the transport truck, in the middle of my lane appears a piece of chromework from a car or something, headlight surround or ?????, about 12" long and a couple inches high.
No time to avoid; hit it square on leaned over; hopped the front end about a foot to the left but, I stayed up. I stopped and checked, finding a nice bruise on the tire right up to the rim on the right side, with some slight tread cutting.
Thank you Dunlop for making sturdy carcasses for your m/c tires; you just saved my ass.
