Was it one of those, so-long-a Peterbilt-can-pass double yellows? Or was it a hairpin so tight, I don't care if you're Lance Armestong* on a pitbike it aint safe, yellows?

No tight bends or trucks on the Trace - but my friend had already passed a couple of Harleys and a KLR when I caught up with him and escorted him safely to the side of the road.

Is this turning into the "Show us the turtle you saved" thread? If so, here's mine from the BRP:

Tried to help this guy across the road but he didn't want any of it. Bugger jumped up when I reached for him and did a 180! Didn't feel like losing any fingers so I left him alone.

That is a snapping turtle, they are very fast and very agressive lol. Be careful around those things :eek1

They also have a long frickin' neck. If you grab him by the back end, he can still get you.

:lol3 Not quite that bad - but you do need to be careful. You certainly don't want one to ever get hold of you.

I've seen what they can do to a fairly thick branch and I surely didn't want to find out what he could do to my finger(s). I was just shocked at how quickly he could "jump".

You've got to respect those cantankerous buggers. I think a few million years ago they said "Evolve? What the hell for?" and have been grumbling along ever since. I moved one off the road with a shovel the other day, and it was facing me and hissing the whole time.

They can't reach all the way around their body, but that spin move is surprisingly quick.....

I've seen them when snorkeling. They're graceful underwater.

Didn't Chuck Berry sing a song about that?

Snappers are pretty cool. I snagged one while bass fishing in Georgia years ago that probably weighed 100lbs or more

Soon as his head came out of the water, my dad quickly cut the line. It's head was at least 6 inches across and it's feet were bigger than my hands

Road Use
 
Well, I learned to ride in Europe; Greece originally. We were taught to use the entire road, depending on traffic and conditions of course. I still cross lines today, not because I'm too slow or not riding correctly, I just always straighten my corners where-ever possible and of course where I won't get caught....:rofl Now this guy, looks not like what I would be doing......
