You know better than to ride around trucks any longer than absolutely necessary, but a far more insidious danger is the unprofessional vacationista whose load-securing skills are often primitive. Whenever you see somebody towing a boat, a trailer, or especially a boat or a trailer with a bunch of other junk strapped onto or around it, expect this to happen and ride accordingly, i.e., nowhere around it. Especially not behind it. That goes double for the bane of Southern California motorists, the gardening truck, which is often a rolling obstacle course of weedwackers, rakes, and aluminum ladders yearning to break free. If you see someone holding a mattress to his roof with one hand out the window, know you’ll be the one most likely to take a nap if you’re silly enough to ride behind him

This rider got back up; we wish him a speedy recovery.

That looks tied down. I never ride at night for one reason: can't see whatever flying off or in path. Some oem roof racks are a hazard and need to be recalled. Mattresses seem to attract those that fail to secure for whatever reason. Everyone does very good in CA.

If anyone does choose to hang out and ride behind one of these types of people, be sure you know how to quick steer the bike and avoid falling shit. Don't be like this guy:
