OK, That's Just Nasty...

On my way home from work yesterday, I was traveling down a two lane road when I saw an RV coming toward me in the other lane. I also noticed something spraying into my lane from the back of the RV. I moved over to the extreme right-hand side of my half of the road (pretty well riding the white line) just before the RV passed me. It was at that point that I realized that the spray coming out the back of the RV was the black-water tank draining! I had a really foul-smelling ride for the next couple of miles until I reached the point where he had turned onto the roadway. Thank God I was able to move over in time...

Too bad you couldn`t have got the licence plate number and turned the selfish, lazy S.O.B. in. There`s no reason for dumping black water on a public road. There are drains at most every campground. Good that you avoided getting sprayed.

Once I got north of the point where he started spraying on the roadway, it was ok, but having to ride next to that crap (pun not *really* intended, but I didn't take great strides to avoid it, either) until I reached that point was pretty foul. It by the direction of the trail, it looked like he was *coming* from a campground. I don't know if he didn't want to pay the dump fee or what...

Wash your bike, if you haven't yet. If you flung any of it up under the frame/engine, the stink will follow you. I'm not going to share the details how I know this, but you get the idea.

Was it the Dave Mattews Band tour bus?
The tour bus they "hired" was cought dumping the black water tank on a steel grated bridge crossing the Chicago River a couple years back...the only reason they were caught is because it doused a filled tour boat of tourists on the river...this was near the downtown area even!

Good luck getting the stank off the bike!

ahhh glad you didn't get sprayed!!
I did once by some pigs ohh boys it was nasty!!! Riding on the Highway, i started to smell some bad odor....next thing you know, not too far ahead of me was a 18 wheeler carrying a bunch of pigs...man the smell was bad, my full face didn't make a difference.
Anyway i had 2 options, stay as far as possible from the truck and smell him throughout the ride or pass the damn truck very quickly!! i did the second option, as i was passing it, somehow a pig took a piss and with the wind this thing sprayed all over me!!!!ahhhhhh i was mad and stinky!!! that day i trashed all the clothes i was wearing and washed KAWA for about 4 hours....

PEACE!!!
