Nothing particularly compelling and certainly nothing that we all haven't experienced before. I do wonder though if motorists would be less likely to take my right of way if I had a 12 guage strapped to the top tube.

Right of way is to be yielded, not taken.

That would be perfectly legal here in Pee Aye.

I saw that gun mount and couldn't figure out how the hunter would get his game home, did Brooks also sell a deer sled?

Cue for Bautieri's tips on squirrel cookery. He's the expert!
