It was a beautiful day here yesterday so took the V-Strom out for a ride. I was on a two lane road when a truck pulling a bass boat was rounding a curve heading toward me. All of a sudden, the spare tire from the bass boat trailer came off and comes sliding toward me at probably 50+ mph. I was going around 50mph heading toward it. It looked like a huge hockey puck coming at me, sliding perfectly flat on the road. The tire never even bounced one time, just a perfect slide. Luckily, given the angle it was heading at me I gunned the V-Strom and missed it by a couple of feet. The guy pulling the trailer never even knew it came off. That would have been some way to go - wiped out by a boat trailer tire!
