Has anyone tried this?

I know it sounds stupid and I'll probably be banned for giving people bad ideas, but I was just riding on the freeway riding next to an 18 wheeler and noticed how high up some of the trailers were. Has anyone ever tried riding under one? I'm just curious because I'm not sure if a bike could really fit under there, it looks like the bike could but the rider would be a tight fit with a helmet and all. Not really planning to run out and do it. Yeah. That is all.

Thing is those cars are lowered and the semi trailers are raised a bit to allow the cars to slip under. Doing it on a bike would be a totally bad idea being that you cannot judge the winds and suctions created by the trailer. Rear tires will have you for lunch.

You're not a stuntman so I wouldn't fathom the thought any further than your mind.
