Just off of the road in a curve; not the best idea I've had but it made for a few good photos. The BRP in Western NC.

Ha! Don't do that in BC! You can't be within 10 feet of them, fines, AND points on your licence! Technically, if its a car parked there, and there is an emergency, they can smash the windows to put the firehose through!

I would worry more about the car he got on the stinger with out primary straps and secondary safety chains.

But,what do I know.
Years ago I saw a NYC Traffic tow truck pick up a bike, dangle it from the cable, and started driving. Every time he started or stopped, the bike smashed into the back of the truck. This was pre flatbeds. God knows if the owner was ever reimbursed for the damage.

I must confess guys. Looks are deceiving, the temperature was in the high 40's when I took this photo. Living in the Western NC mountains we have extreme swings in temperature. The ice on the rock cliffs were from a arctic cold front that moved through the mountains two day before. It was in the teens for several days but warmed back up fast. Made for a good pic and conversation.

Look closely at the windshield near the throttle, I believe it is already cracked.

Coudn`t resist it when I saw this mini roundabout.


Badly parked ?
Surely not,Officer...it looks pretty much perfectly central to me.
