Don't ride behind or stay very far back from any vehicle that has stuff attached that can fly off.

Examples:

- Anything on top (Bicycle, Thule cargo box, mattress, canoe, kayak, etc....)

- Work trucks - like a gardener with a pickup filled with all sorts of crap, work truck filled with tools, etc....

- Trailered cars or bikes

The list goes on forever.....

Assume that anything might fly/fall off, hit you and ruin your day will do just that.


I think it was on ADV where I read of a rider who had an oncoming Subaru lose a kayak mid-turn and almost take him out.

In Sturgis in 2005 a rider was killed when a Porta-pottie fell off of a truck in front of him.
