Looks like you're really lucky
Assume the blowout was on the trailer
HoJo was asking me last night whether you may be coming up for Bikeweek
Can't be more than five or six weeks away now
Is your truck repairable?
No it was totaled officially yesterday. Bad thing is I didn't know you could have insurance on a utility trailer, so it is not covered and is also totaled. I should have a new ride and trailer by the end of next week.
Anyone that does alot of trailering might want to learn from me and get insurance on the trailer.
Thanks for the invite!! It all depends on work as it looks like I may be busier that last year..
Sorry to hear about all that damage, but at least you are ok and a truck and trailer are easier replaced than a person. Insurance is a good idea..
About 15 years ago, I also blew a tire on my trailer and fortunately I was doing only about 45 MPH. I felt the trailer starting to wobble as the tire bulged before it blew.
Salt water rots the steel belts inside the tires and now the new trailer tires are nylon belted only.
I blew a trailer tire sometime last year at about 70 mph. A large chunk of tire passed the truck. I saw it shoot past my window right after I heard the bang.
No drama, just pulled over and changed it. I don't think my trailer tires are rated for over 55 mph.
Next to bearings, tire inflation pressure is the most overlooked item on trailers. Most of them require 50 PSI and some even more. Just yesterday I checked mine and the were 10 PSI low..
I had the Ducati and F 650 on the open trailer headed to GA a few years back. Of all places to blow a trailer tire, I had to be in the next to left lane just starting across the I-295 St Johns River bridge. Crossed the three lanes to the right side emergency lane without a collision. Although Courtney who was about 12-13 at the time was about to freak out. That's a looonng bridge to cross at less than 5 mph in the emergency lane.
I usually don't go over 40 psi on trailer tires unless I'm hauling weight
Fifty PSI in junk tires is a lot
Although the trailer John was pulling with his atv I'd have had 50 in the tires
Hoping you're busy Oscar but
Hoping you can come to The Scrub too
Sounds so far like we'll have a good group
Wondering if Chuck is planning on Bikeweek this year
Haven't heard from him lately
John in WV
If I could remember how to spell Johnny West I'd PM him
And The Pres
Cape Fear Keith
Sure do wish he'd come
It's been too freakin' long dangit!
It's been two weeks now since my Dad fell again
This time he broke his pelvis
Back in rehab for a couple of months
Seems to be never ending
He was transferring from his Electic Wheel chair over to his recliner and just fell on his arse
Just got off the phone with him, he says he needs more tooth pics but I checked yesterday and...WTF!
You have to laugh if you can't cry, right?
Anyway, Scrub is a go this year and I can't wait
Oysters this coming WE
Superbowl isn't it?
Got another dead oak in our front yard
Last year while the black folks across the street had a huge party
Rented tent and big screen TV
We burn't a stump and drank a sheet pot load of beer :slurp
Looks like a repeat this year
Except that Hailey is having friends over for a movie marathon Saturday
House full of 14 year olds
Think I'll clean the Mako while we're burning the stump and roastin' oysters
Most likely sausage and Mac-n-cheese Friday
Boston Butt Saturday in lieu of ribs, so much simpler
Depending on when everyone plans to show and leave
We'll do chicken and rice/paella one night
I really don't care, suggestions are always welcome :dg
Scrub... I was wondering if it was a "go" this year...
John, you can insure the trailer AND all the contents of the trailer. I had my landscape trailer and everything in it insured.
Allen, Do you know the dates of the Scrub weekend?
Yup, lesson learned, just left the State Farm and got my check, I am picking up the Armada in an hour. I will buy a new trailer this week and get it insured. I already have the rzr fully insured.
Glad to hear there will be a "Scrub" this time around. The menu as planned looks really good, too.
Maybe I can get a dog-sitter for the hound and pry Beth out of the house and bring her up. She always complains that I get to go and have the fun while she's stuck tending the dog.
First WE of Bikeweek, the eighth
I'm going up Thursday and more than likely leaving Monday
