So yesterday I had a special case of the specials. I purchased a cheapo mobile phone mount off ebay (you already know this story isn't going to end well). It was a 2 piece thing with a bracket and a slot in cradle. I was listening to music off my phone as I rode along Richmond Rd at about 80kmh. Then I feel a tug on my ears. Music stops. I look down to see the cradle had jumped off the bracket with my phone attached. The thought went through my head as I pulled over, is it even worth stopping? I'm running late and my phone has no chance. There was also a huge truck coming behind me. Well I was wrong. I get off my bike to see the phone less than 20 m away. It must have jumped along the road a fair bit as there was no way I stopped that quickly. I'm not really sure how it didn't get hit by the truck as it was right in the wheel track. There was a line of cars heading straight for it too which I had to frantically wave my arms at to not hit it. And the phone was working perfectly. Good job Samsung. In the process of panic stop to pick up my phone I also must have dropped my second cradle out of my pocket which I was supposed to deliver to another netrider after I got two instead of one off ebay. It was still in an envelope with my name and address on it, so there's a chance that it may find its way back to me. But I don't think anyone wants it now given the quality of the other one and I really hope it got hit by that truck. So that brings me to my third drop of the day. As I was gearing up at uni I saw my keys still in my topbox and thought I should put them in my pocket. Of course I forgot. And after an hour ride across most of Sydney as I degeared I realised that I couldn't find my keys anywhere. I quickly realised what had happened. Now I've done the same thing before and that time the keys traveled over an hour and 80km to still be in place in my topbox at the end of my journey. So I didn't hold much hope in finding them. And the car key is over $100 to replace and the strata security is $60, plus they were all original keys. Of course I just made 1 call to campus security. And thankfully for speed bumps and trying to get the front wheel up on empty roads leaving the uni late at night, the keys got picked up and handed to security. So tl;dr I'm an absolutely lucky imbecile. I had never lost anything while riding, yet I managed to drop 3 things yesterday. So what have you dropped off your bike? Did it survive? Did it get returned to you?
