I've been both suprised and amused in some of your finds.Its amazing what you find when your not really looking for it.

The sanity / mind answers are going to get repetitive and cliche by about the 100th one, aren't they?

Maybe not - let's see how many others think it's being clever.

At this point I am just following to see how many other people have found blue handled channel lock pliers, think so far there are 3 or 4 of us.

Me and my buddy went on ride for about 2 hours, he was on his YZ490 and me sand surfing my turd. nothing spectacular happens but on way home i see a kickstarter laying the in the middle of the trail just as i pass it, i turn around to pick it up and my buddy rolls up, kills the yamaha and says "Someone isn;t lucky today i hope that be my spare!" and then he goes to kick his bike and "Awww fuck!" he has no kickstarter. All I told him was "you are SOO lucky we didn;t have that cigarette break about 7 miles that way," pointing off in the desert.

So his kickstarter vibrated off and then I happen to find it on accident the way home and somehow he didn;t kill the bike since we left his house. And there is only like a million different ways to get home but this one time we happen to take the same trail back

Found a 10mm Allen wrench the other day.

Found another big Allen but didn't get a chance to go back and get it.

Now that's what I call a gr-r-reat find!

Most useful thing I've ever found while riding? Easy, the $73 or so in scattered cash I picked up alongside the road. To be fair, I was on my bicycle at the time, but hey it is riding.

The most useful thing I've ever lost while riding? Easy again. My Eureka pup tent. I hadn't yet mastered the art of bungee and it wasn't on the back of my bike when I got to the campsite in Seneca Rocks. Doubling back didn't find it and I think it was worth about $89, so the cash didn't quite make up for the loss. I think I ended up staying in one of the cabins, with friends who showed me mercy.

This resulted in me buying a cheaper, larger and better Made in China tent which has served me well for about 10 years now, and I can easily transport it on my bike, even my MZ Baghira.
