So many times.  No no no no.  Don't let Cher influence your decision because of a double yellow either.  Shots

The rider was going too slow.  Lingering about at 44mph seems a bit timid in then midst of certain death; just line it up and blast on through.   That's what I do…

Seriously, it all looked reasonably do-able from the riders vantage point as he began to "pass:"  no driveways or turn-offs for other cars or the tractor thing to turn on to; good visibility ahead with no stopped traffic in their lane… But just as the rider totally commits to his move, they crest the small hill and immediately there is a farm road on the right with a gas station or something right there as well  Shocked

I've come across these sprayers a few times and there's always that little Evil on my shoulder that tells me it would be an epic experience. That little guy can be a real idiot sometimes so I usually tune him out. Usually.  Mr. Evil has provided some of the most memorable experiences I've found myself in so of course I still have to hear him out.  Grin

I came up behind one of these once while south of Bonham a bit. I considered doing the same exact thing, but then I thought "If I die doing this stupid thing, what are people going to say about me at my funeral?".

So I didn't do it.

But I could have.

 ByeBye

if you did it Mark no one would fault you, after all being old and demented like you many things are forgiven.

We'll just say you thought it was a drive-through car wash or something...
