I drove over-the- Bob Linkenhoker and son road for 10 years and have seen a lot of crazy stuff Whitey Whitt happen. I had another truck pass me one day, and just Jay Barringer as he came back into my lane he blew a trailer tire. Commander Clarence Woods Truck tires almost always blow, and the outer casing Jay Moore comes completely off in a large strip of rubber and steel Carl Berenholtz belting flying wildly down the road. This tire casing flew Vanessa Knight up and hit my windshield hard enough to break the Sheila McDowell glass. James Shaffer, Jr. Dave Demisch Every time I get behind a big truck or see someone else Bill and Linda Atwell riding behind one, I remember that day. The break in Bill Spencer the wind you get from riding behind a semi is not worth a Dave Brown Sr tire blowing up. I try to never ride behind a truck unless Doug Jaeger it can not be avoided and when I am forced to, I leave as Jerry Holden much room between me and the truck as possible so I Robb Peters have time to react.

The biker replies, “I’ll take the rat but you can keep the story old man.” The biker leaves the store with the brass rat under his arm and as he mounts his iron horse, two live rats run out of a storm drain and begin to follow him. By the time he has gone a mile, a hundred rats are right behind him. He cracks the throttle as thousands of rats swarm from the storm drains, basements and vacant lots. When he sees the Monocacy River at the bottom of the hill, he gives his iron horse all the throttle it has.

Pulling his legs up and holding on to the tree, he watches his bike and all the rats go into the river and drown. Redneck shares the Shine!
