    -- a 45 caliber bullet I turned into the military guard when entering the base where I work
    -- an Iphone with a broken screen that still worked and was able to return
    -- A new phone case that fit my wife's new phone perfectly
    -- VHS cassettes of porn (guy must have ditched when he saw his wife coming)
    -- A dead beaver the size of a large German Shepherd
    -- used prophylactics (ugh, good thing I use fenders)
    -- A garage door opener that I may be able to program to replace the one that blew off my bike when on my car rack
    -- A UNM student ID that I was able to return
    -- a porcupine, coyotes, raccoon ( carrying a Surefire flashlight is useful for such early morning sightings),

If I get a chance and ever see this again I'm going to stop the car quickly if I can do so safely, And run like crazy toward them to see who these people are.

    I always end up finding bags with pornographic DVD's with only the cases left. There were also a few rusty wheelchairs in this lake, which kind of creeped me out.

    Sounds like it was fresh enough to keep you warm if you were to slip it into your jersey pocket.

    Hey I live in kokomo Indiana. its pretty cool to hear about someone talking about here even if that person is an idiot. Whatever its not my home town. I don't see very many on bike around here and the one person I did see told me he had got to to many duis and that's the only reason he rides. Not me tho I ride cuz I like it. If you ever ride in kokomo be careful lots of people will be ********. As far as the highway thing I'm surprised you didn't see me I cross that highway at least 10.times a week.

    Just some of the basics so far:

    Smooshed cat
    Condoms
    Homeless person area burrowed out in the woods just off the bike trail
    A sign for people to hold to protest "Planned Parenthood"

    And some better ones I'll post when I think of them.

    I found a bunch of dental picks, the good ones like dentist actually use, on the road. I ran over a few and was worried about getting a flat.

    Yesterday I found milk crate full of orange juice pints. Looks like the milk truck guy forgot to close the hatch.

    OK, that must be why I carry straps around with me. I would definitely put that on my rack.

    A free bike!
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/26-Mens-NE...n-Bike/4231518
    Last week, me and a friend found one of these, with a sign next to it saying "free" - We were a mile from my house, so we took turns carrying it.
    Its in good shape, but was clearly put together poorly. Everything needs adjustment, the chain was tangled, the rear wheel was off, the back brakes cable was not connected to the handle, and the chain has a bit of rust I need to clean. I have it in the basement while I slowly work on it, more for fun than anything else. Cheap bike, low quality, but a free beater bike isn't a bad deal!

    Sometimes last week I saw a bra on the road while riding to work.

    No, I didn't pick it up...

    No, it wasn't a Victoria Secret type of bra either.

    Think it might have fallen off someone's laundry basket

    USB drive, with no incriminating data or contact info, sadly.
    Lots of broken glasses...
    And a ziplock bag with some mulch in it. Can't imagine why someone is carrying around a little bag with an ounce of mulch in it..

    I was out by LAX when I saw the roadkill 'coon. On Coyote Creek Trail when I saw the coyote in the creek.

    Mostly it's GU packets and old tubes. Shopping carts in the river beds. Homeless encampments under the freeways.
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    A few weeks ago I came across a bob cat trotting up the trail. He ducked off about 100 feet in front of me. I see turkeys, geese and coyote's and deer quite often.

    I see lots of wildlife. Coyotes, foxes, bobcats, skunks, armadillos, possums, raccoons, etc. I've even seen an owl just chillin on a park bench.

    The strangest thing I saw was a very upset John dropping off a tranny hooker. (S)he tried flagging me down after he drove off, but I just kept going.

    The other week as I was headed out to the VA I saw a vulture on the side of the road eating carrion. I literally said to myself "Holy f***ing s**t." As other then on nature shows on TV I've never actually saw a vulture out in the wild actually eating carrion.

    And just this past week I found some gals purse/clutch and returned it. Sadly, she wasn't home at the time so I just left it in her mailbox.

    I too usually see a LOT of bras, women's tops, socks, shoes etc.

    The strangest looking thing I have come across was a frozen glove laying fingers up like some poor guy sunk into the roadside. The fingers were even splayed out an alarming, help me, fashion. The best finds have been bungie cords(can't have too many of those),an awesome 12" Snap on adjustable wrench and money.

    Assorted tools, the best being a 1/2" drive torque wrench, lots of pliers, vise-grips, occassional wrench.
    Unopened beer or liquor, often along rural roads where it was tossed out the window at night by an underage person when they noticed they were being followed by the cops.
    Assorted clothing, found a Subway restaurant employees cap yesterday. The only other item of clothing I ever bothered to pick up was a nice windbreaker that was lying along the highway clean and dry.
    Perhaps the most interesting was a youth sized Diamondback MTB in excellent condition. It was obviously dumped/abandoned so I contacted the local PD and took it in. It wasn't claimed within 60 days and was donated to a local charity.
