Caution!-Calcium chloride for dust control

This stuff:

Nasty as it is, it is an improvement to the dirt roads. I went out for a back road ride last night and got into an area of fresh application. Nasty mess on the bike again. When I pulled out onto the pavement, there was a couple young men having trouble with their pedal bike. Being in a remote area and having a tool kit with me, thought I'd stop to see if they needed any help. The instant I touched my back brake I found myself in a full sideways lock up slide. Luckily, I was doing all of about 10 mph. Coulda been ugly though. The pavement was stained on the tread areas for a long way from cars pulling out with wet tires. So, if they use this stuff in your area, pay attention and be careful.

Wow....more rust for the Michigan clunkers?
Thanks for the warning as I go like hell on gravel.
I hope they stay out of Sanilac county.
Its my dream to live on a dirt road far away from people.

I've been riding and driving on this stuff basically all my life. It's not too slick on the dirt roads, just where the cars deposit the residue onto the pavement. It is an oil after all. I've always been careful when pulling out on to the pavement, but I never tried to use my brakes before when my tires were still snotty wet with the stuff. Whoo-Hoo! bad news. Great for doing smoky hole shots back in my younger days though , but on a bike...not.

so slow down to 80 when approaching the tarby...ok...got it.

Also use caution and look out for " loose chippings" on tarby surface.
