Just had to post about what an idiot I am. I am headed to Mexico for the rest of the week with my wife, so I thought this would be a great time to take my bike to the shop for a litle tune up before Louisville in a few weeks.
Here I am with a +$4000 bike strapped to this totally ghetto bike rack I have. It actually has a missing bolt, yet I still use it with a bungie cord. I'm flying down I-85 at 70 MPH and I hear a thump and look out the back window to see my bike -- gone!!!!. I whip off the highway on to the side and the bike is still attached to the rack which is dragging on the ground held by 1 strap. THE BIKE IS NOT HARMED! It's a freakin' miracle!!!
Best part is I drop a couple of F-bombs in front of my six year old son who is coming along with me. He says "what f-bomb daddy?"
Note to self, GET A NEW FREAKIN' BIKE RACK!!!!
