Exclamation What I Saw Monday Night...(Ugly)

WHERE:
Monday evening, at 8:30PM, headed southbound on the Maine Turnpike.

Conditions:
several hours of Snow/freezing rain mix, with 4+ inches of accumulated crap on the driving surface. it is a 3 lane road, and I was only driving in 1. I was in my Avalanche, in 4WD. yup, it was slicker that deer shit on a door knob!...

What we saw:
An '05, or '06 K1200 LT (Graphite) in the breakdown lane, on the sidestand, in 4-5 inches of snow, 2 state cop cars with their lights on, and a white cargo van.....oh shit!


I was traveling south, doing a maximum of 45MPH, ad the 2 cruisers had their lights on. the bike was near a guard rail, and the van was in front.

from my perspective, it appeared the K12 was attempting to "beat the storm", and got busted. I am totally in awe of this stupid bastard. he drove 30 miles or more in standing snow/freezing rain, on a turnpike. The van driver was obviously a Good Samaritan, who had no freaking idea how much this pig weighs. No ramps, and they were looking at lifting it into the back!

Ouch! can we say, "Call my chiropractor!!"

the bike was gone when I came back through 2 hours later (with 6+ inches of snow)

damn, he must have had some big brass one to even attempt that stunt.

Are you sure the LT didnt stop to help the van?

Doug
'05 K1200LT,
My dog is very selective where he will pee, yet he will poop anywhere. In that regard; we couldn’t be more different.

That was my first thought, or the guys old lady called the cops to try and stop him.
My ex wifes first experience with me was a New Years eve party on leaving she said we could take her car. I told her you can ride with me, you can follow me in your car but I'm not riding in it or leaving my bike.
25 miles through a white out snowstorm, (she brings this up when ever she talks about our relationship) I turn around beard covered in ice and snow with an ear to ear grin! . She admits that "thinking back I knew right then, there was no house breaking you and should have run for my life "

I just tell them now from the start, don't try to fix me, I'm not broken. I like being this way, living like tomorrow never comes, one day it won't.
