You know better than to ride around trucks any longer than absolutely necessary, but a far more insidious danger is the unprofessional vacationista whose load-securing skills are often primitive. Whenever you see somebody towing a boat, a trailer, or especially a boat or a trailer with a bunch of other junk strapped onto or around it, expect this to happen and ride accordingly, i.e., nowhere around it. Especially not behind it. That goes double for the bane of Southern California motorists, the gardening truck, which is often a rolling obstacle course of weedwackers, rakes, and aluminum ladders yearning to break free. If you see someone holding a mattress to his roof with one hand out the window, know you’ll be the one most likely to take a nap if you’re silly enough to ride behind him

This rider got back up; we wish him a speedy recovery.

I got stuck directly behind a pig truck once. Most awful riding experience of my life. It took me longer than it should have to pull over and put many cars between myself and the truck. Only positive was I had a full face helmet on.

Bull haulers around dodge city leave there bottem gates open so the waste leaks out the bottom.
The roads covered with it.
I wish I had a dollar for every mattress I have seen on the side of road in the 2,000,000 miles I drove commercially coast to coast.
