I found a Pair of "Houston Texan" logo winter gloves recently... One glove one day, didn't find the mate so I tossed it, found the other the next day, went back for the first and it was still there!!!
We don't get much Winter Glove weather down here but there were a couple of times when they came in handy !

My contribution to the thread !

I found a gun 2 weeks ago. A 6 shooter cap gun with the bright orange tip. With the bright chrome plated plastic it was hard to miss on the side of the road. Works great!

I found a pearl izumi ear-warmer headband (mine now), a L. Garneau ear-warmer headband(my husbands now),lots of gloves(no matches yet), various tools-pliers, screwdrivers, gardening shears, pocket knives, phones, marbles etc,but my best find was an iron. Not the sort that you plug in, but the old fashioned cast iron type that had to be heated on the woodstove! It was heavy and getting it home in my jersey pocket was a challenge. The second best find was... a wooden duck, lifesize. it also went in my (now stretched out )jersey pocket.

Don't ask what I've stolen. Kim Go-Dog-Go

I live in a rural area - so there's no telling what I'm likely to see. All the usual stuff - from saddles to furniture; tools, toys, soiled diapers, stray hogs and cattle, the occasional farm implement(s), road kill. Never found any money, though.

On Sunday rides it's not unusual to spot someone's underwear (that probably got thrown from a pickup, in the heat of passion, on "Saturday Nite"): More often ladies than mens. I guess these country folk get wild on Saturday nite. I've also have seen a lot of porno mags and packs of condoms (never opened).

Hubcaps, Cigarette lighters, flashlights that never work - (maybe they burned out the batteries trying to find their underwear).

Today a small caliber bullet, hitch receiver pin and lots of nuts and bolts. Unlike RWG I did not stop on steep hill for fear I would not start again LOL

I am back and glad to find this thread continues and thanks to maschwab for continuing it while I was gone. I built up a new single speed bike and I'm riding again. I found last week.
1 old navy vinyl football and 2 drink koozies. I have like 100 drink koozies I have found and they are great for when we have people over for a pool party in the summer. Don't have to worry about them disappearing!

Interesting thread. I actually went back today for an open end wrench I went past on the road...it was a 5/8 9/16 combination which I can use for my rear axle!

I have found in the past year of commuting, a couple of sockets, another open end wrench, I think that's it for memorable stuff. A few pennies or change from time to time. Yesterday I rode past a card in an envelope and after I'd passed I briefly considered checking to see if someone's birthday money might have been in it, but it was in the gutter and a bad location to have gone back to check[sic] so I didn't.

I saw a sausage in the middle of the road the other day. We were riding so hard and I was so hungry it could have been anything though.
