Reminds me of a time back in the 1970's, when I was riding my Electra-Glide (in a 3-piece business suit no less...) home from Chicago to my house in the suburbs. I passed a street-vendor selling BEAUTIFUL potted-palms CHEAP! They were selling like assault-rifles in the ghetto... I couldn't resist... I grabbed a neat 8-footer (musta weighed 50 pounds dirt n' all...) and balanced it half on the tank, and half on the front of the seat on my trusty hog.
I hit the freeway, and found that around 70 mph, the tree got a WHOLE lot lighter... And it BENT in the wind... pushing me into the "unused" most rearward parts of the seat, nearly onto the saddlebags...
I think THAT was the LONGEST, most fatiguing 30-mile ride I ever experienced... But I did get the palm AND the Harley home in one piece... What a site it must have been... LOL!
Ride SAFE... ?
