We all know about safety in the shop, one slip can ruin a career or a month or two of otherwise productive shop time. I would hope all you folks have fun hobbies & like some here we like Motor sports. I finally took a trip to Moses Lake Wa. this last weekend to ride Quads, dirt bikes & to finally drive a good friends sand rail that I donated a healthy 350 V8 to make it the fastest there. The bunch of folks there were as burly as I’ve seen and could kick yer butt with just a look. I however haven’t ridden the sand for a while and got beat up but good just trying to keep up with these guys. No I did not have a wreck just a small rollover in the sand. But the Main Man who we all think the world of got too “throttle happy” and had a bad endo. “Ass over teakettle” and is still in the hospital with a punctured lung & ruptured disc. I’ll be 53 this june & still act like a kid. I’ve had some falls on jobs but have been lucky not to have had such a tragedy with my motorcycle.
I just want to extend my hopes to all my friends here to “have fun but don’t try to be the fastest” We are here for the long run, not the short one!
PS. Thank goodness the trans broke in the sand rail so no one got banged up in that!
