When I was 15

Found an ounce of pot right under the trailer as we were unloading the dirt bikes in a rest area up on the Cape. I don't know how useful it was, as I felt pretty useless for the next week or two!

I found a one gallon gas can out near the sand dunes a few years back. The spout was a little melted, like it had been on a bike and contacted the exhaust. I still have it, and use it for mixed gas for my chainsaw and weed whacker.

Myself. Whenever I start to feel beaten down, a ride always brings me back

Decided the only thing I could do with it was purchase a cheap lunch and use the rest for gas and search for some lonely roads.

25 years ago on an 85 XL350 found a tool box loaded with tools out in the woods. They were left by a jeep or truck and had a decent amount of rust. Bungeed it up and took it home. Cleaned all the tools up and still use the tool box and tools to this day.

Oh deer!

About 40 lbs of venison and half a dozen vultures. Great photo up! I started slowing down just when the unholy stench of putrefying Bambi penetrated my helmet, and sped back up.

Last spring I spotted a coffee cup on a bumper. I was on a new-to-me bike, so my brother on his trusty Nighthawk 250 zipped in, dumped the coffee and handed the cup to the flabbergasted driver.

Weirdest thing wasn't even on a bike- it was canoeing down below the Hoover dam. Stop, crawl outa the water, make camp and wander back into a slot canyon about 150 yards, and there's a gap in the rock... that had a brand new 3 D cell maglight in it. Worked perfectly, even had batteries. Used it for years until I left it by the side of the road.

Several years ago I was in my cage getting on the SF bay bridge, east bound, from Treaure island. I look down and to my left is practically an entire tool box. looked in the rear view mirror no one behind me, scoop up the tools throw them in the car and take off. apperantly fell off some ones truck. still have most of the tools.

3/8" Craftsman ratchet.

20" of nice 2" steel channel stock I cut in half and use for a grate in my wood burning stove. Works great!

$20 bill while walking with my wife in Puerto Rico. We immediately lost it back in a casino.

A 16 oz. Bluegrass brand claw hammer with ACE scratched on the handle near the head.
I was going around Lexinton on New Circle and spotted a new red gas jug in the weeds. I hooked a U-ie and it was mine.
