Too close to the highway, the black smoke would probably get me in trouble.

At least I don't cut them up with a sawzall and put them in the trash like EJ

What we like to call a Sawzall brand variable speed reciprocating saw.

Correction. It is a DeWALT branded Reciprocating Saw that is used on said items.

Plus, I am out of the Coarse Tooth Blades right now. So, my stack of Tourance's is getting tall.

Make sure it's a metal cutting blade not a wood blade, especially if it's steel belted radial tire.

I was unaware that the Leaning Tower of Tourances had a twin monument in Gahanna.

How's the tractor? Or is that what's keeping the tire stack from falling over?

Wood blades work good too. I use old junk wood blades to cut 26ga barn siding when we are putting up pole barns.

I'd be afraid of them catching on the cords in a tire but if it works... learn something new.

Alright I'm talkin!

This past Tuesday our own Alansz was WRR'n it over to see the new Honda CRF when he met a pickup truck mid-corner on a 1 lane dirt road. He cut right to miss it, but caught the bumper with his left leg.

A statie showed up, made some anti-dirtbike comments, and ended up citing Alan for left of center . It was a 1 lane road, and the truck was pulling a large trailer... make your own conclusion.

Alan was flown down here to Ohio State University Hospital, and an Inmate picked up his bike, which apparently isn't in to bad of shape.

I met a few folks at the hospital Wednesay, but Alan was pretty zonked. Had a bit of an erector set thing going on with his left leg, which is broken (both bones) just below the knee. That appears to be the only substantial damage though. He was in the transplant department , but had a nice room. The goal was for Surgery Friday, and home Monday or Tuesday.

I went back Thursday morning and he was nowhere to be found. Apparently the doctors were concerned about swelling, so they brought him into surgery early, where they were replacing the external brace with plates and screws on the bones.

Which brings us to Friday (yesterday), I stopped by after work and almost walked into someone else's room. Apparently they moved him out of the transplant department up to the ortho...broken-bone... department, where he's now sharing a room with some elderly guy who is absolutely hating life, yet apparently has a lot of friends. Alan was awake and alert, and fricking miserable; the shared room is ridiculous. The leg looks much better, it's wrapped in ACE type bandage and has one of these things:


Goal now is to leave the Hospital Sunday (Tomorrow).

That corner has no center, The road is about 7 feet wide there, I went through it with my truck and trailer and the trailer tires were in the ditch on the wrong side of the road. It is just a no visibility, sharp, cow path road, anyone of us riding that road could have had the exact same scenario, prob with worse results. If I had been the guy in the truck, the same thing would have happened, just bad timing and I don't see how anyone could be cited..

Thanks for the update.

Yeah, I'd be curious to see what the ticket was for. Left of center or right side of roadway really won't fly because there is no "center line" and it's hard to be on the "right side of the road" when the road is one lane wide. That would, by definition, make both drivers responsible since both were on more than just their right half of the roadway. Failure to control is out, too, since the crash was not caused by failing to control. He should contest it, most def.

Glad he's ok, I was wondering when it was gonna get posted up here, didn't want to be the guy to do it but thanks for busting the hymen, Mike!
