Exclamation *WARNING*

I was on 59 traveling southbound exiting 610 just after Chimney Rock and I narrowly missed a 2x4 laying in the lane. Just giving you guys a heads up...

Good looking out.

For anyone who hasn't taken the msf(shame shame), a good way to minimalize the chance of a crash in a collision with something like this is to get up on your feet and use your arms and knees as shock absorbers. It also helps if you have the bike as upright as possible rather than leaned over. Accellerating right before impact will take weight off the front wheel and help to get you over as well.

Just thought I'd pass that along. Its helped me once or twice.

Normally the bike would ride right over it like a 60 Mph speed bump. I would be concerned running over an aluminum ladder lol. Thanks for the heads up though dude!

I was on 59S around 1pm and saw the same debris you saw on the left lane. It had nails and in it too...luckily the traffic (at the time) slowed down because if they didn't I would have probably ran over it.

People are driving like . Today I nearly got turned into on 59S bound exiting Wilcrest/Belfort at the last minute and yesterday myself and another road buddy (stranger on a bike w/ his girl - full gear on I believe an old red Honda VFR?) nearly got rear ended by a CRV following too closely ob 45N bound right before 610 around lunch time. And it's not even Black Friday yet! Be safe everyone

Easy fix.

Step one pull out Licences and flip over
Step Two: call number on back of card and inform them of the object in the middle of road
Step three Officer dispatch will call you back when it has been picked up and thank you for saving lives.

all this is free of charge and we pay taxes for this. no need to read any more deaths here on MH pass this on.

I almost ran over a mattress on 183 in Austin on the upper level one night. I pulled over ran up, yanked that ****er off the road.

Normally I call 311 but this thing was asking to kill someone cause It was right at the end of a slight uphill curve.

I have been in all of the above situations. Seen debris on the road and wondered whether I should post. I've run over stuff that wasn't a big deal (stood on the pegs ok), and I've hit that I didn't even see fast enough to avoid. Thanks for posting, someday this could save a life or at the very least a wreck.

Great info man, maybe post up a new thread with it for the masses to know?

Chadmod hit a piece of debris on the freeway also, I think it was a bed post. Wasn't even a member of this forum when it happened, and I didn't know the guy, but I remember it was a huge deal. Hopefully his crash raised awareness for road debris.
