coming home from work, everybody knows these very fun guys that apparently always come on the road when you try to go to work or try to get home.
Yes, I'm talking of the farmers with there oh so slow and wide machines...
So there I was, just cruising and suddenly there he was, blocking the road due to the width of his vehicle.
No other choice than to stay behind and wait until we were on a road with 2 lanes. (this one was only one lane).
We reach a nice 2-lane road, so I prepare to overtake him, moving to the left lane so he can spot me and make some room.
He moves over to the right (I thought he saw me), so I started to overtake him.
But he, when I was right beside him, he moved to the left again!!!
I had no other choice than to go left also, driving my left tyres of the road, into this really deep ditch.
I kept on driving (you can't brake now, can you) and saw this really big rock coming towards my left wheels, and BANG!!! eek! eek!
I seriously thought that my front wheel was split in half! Man such a bang.
I drive on until I reached a location where I could stop and inspect the damage, but no visual damage...
I drove on, testing brakes, taking turns to see if anything was bend or broken, but didn't feel anything.
Next week I'm going to the dealer, to get some new parts fitted (in warranty) and I'll ask him to take a look at my left side.
Anyone has some ideas as to what he should be checking??
btw. the parts that will be replaced are the rubbers strips running on the roof. Mine have shrunken, so they agreed to replace them in warranty.
