Seems like a little orange paint or a flag might have been nice...... I'll bet he needed a change of uniform after that sudden stop.

Sort of lucky that had a wood axle. If that had been a good lump of nicely welded steel that would have been an even more sudden stop Ouch! Cheers Col

Yeah, Well! What can I say Brian, what can I say??? This doesn't bode well for you at all What ever happened to common sense??? You could always move down to "The Great Down Under" where good Dentists can make a living and ones Eyes can Fry in their sockets. Not to mention the great tracts of Salt Flats and Clay Pans to operate ones Land Yachts.. "Come ON Down" Ron
