Saw you run over that fucking tire tread.

You hit it with both wheels and it flew up in the air behind you, flipped a couple times, and then almost got the pickup truck following you.

I was actually surprised you made it.

I was on the green kawasaki touring bike. you passed me a minute before you hit that thing.

you made it, dude! W007!

Oof. Been there, done that. Scared the hell out of me. I was amazed that it didn't destroy my tires and wheels.

Yes re-caps from big trucks, this time of year as the temps rise those re caps that have been driven low on air/ slow leak will heat up and blow off, some times the whole tire will explode like a grenade, dont drive next to big trucks.

Even 1 ton trucks with duals have enough weight and psi to be kind of scary when they blow. One of many reasons to stay ahead or behind but not next to bigger vehicles if possible.
