Well first real post and I'm already eating sh-t, we're off to a good start.
I was riding today when I got passed by a white pickup with one of those American flags you can attach to the windows of your car, probably leftover from July 4th. The dude accelerated and the flag popped off right in front of me. I had the option to A) run over the stars and stripes or B) attempt to swerve and avoid it. I chose plan B, but the road I was on had moderate traffic and lots of sand in what little shoulder there was. To veer out suddenly to the left directly into traffic probably meant I'd die so I cut right real quick and whadyaknow I wiped out on a patch of sand. I was fine and so was the bike except for some scratches on the pedals and brake levers. So I gathered my ego and went back to the little American flag lying there in shoulder of the road, unscathed. I picked it up, stuck it in a nearby house's chain link fence, and rode away while the flag fluttered in the breeze.
Probably more of a symbolic gesture than anything but I feel like I'd wouldn't be able to just run over the flag.
