I was on my way home to Oak Ridge from the Club House on 61 near Gibsonville one night when I happened upon a pearl white Flat Head Harley abandoned on the side of the road west of Reidsville about 4 in the morning.
I blew by it pretty fast and thought I was seeing things (you know how trips home from the club house could be) so I turned around and went back. Sure enough, there it was, looking like new, factory springer and all.
Then 2 very drunk bikers came crawling out of the ditch happy as hell to see me.
They had found the old bike in a tobacco barn, spent years restoring it, and had taken it for the first test ride. And were having such a great time they forgot to put gas in it.
We used one of their empty liquor bottles to get some gas out of my Superglide and get them going again.
Abandoned Harleys are rare.
