An Air Horn saved my bonnet!

Really.

A large recycling truck started inexplicably rolling back towards me at an intersection today. After a mad scramble to remember where the horn was (cue rapidly increasing heart rate and pucker factor!) I found it where I'd left it - on the lighting stalk tip.

Result! He stopped rolling back, the chassis rails literally two inches from my 605 bonnet. :shock:

This is twice in the last five days, people have failed to notice a large car, headlights ablaze, loud exhaust... No wonder motorcyclists are quitting around suburban areas - if I am in danger, imagine their predicament.

Definitely need some pseudo-funereal writing for the front doors, in flourishing gold or silver script: "Raide & Morte, Funerary Assistants"

How about "City Morgue - You kill 'em We chill 'em."

If I wash it tomorrow, sure. Covered in sap and pollen right now. :oops:
