    I was putting along the road looking for things to take pictures of. I saw a car approaching in my mirror so I moved over on the shoulder. As I did, the flashing lights came on. As he got out, I hollered, "I just pulled over to let you by." He said they had reports of a biker in the road. I told him I was just riding around taking pictures of Route 66. He said to be careful, they didn't want anyone getting hit. He probably laughed as he drove away - I'm sure I wasn't the kind of "biker" he was expecting.
