Headed south to the Rio Grande Valley in S. Texas on a job related matter yesterday. IN the distance I could see a bike coming towards me on north bound side in the emergency lane. As it got closer I could see he was running a flag so figured it was a bent. When we passed each other it was a Tour Easy running a Zipper fairing. It was piloted by a gent in what appeared his retirement years. The odd thing was that he was being escorted by a huge motorhome that was pulling a SUV!!!! All this plugging along in the emergency lane at what looked like 15 mph.
