And when you think about our intended usage, how that bus looks right now, and how a sticks&staples rig would have come through that..........

That's sad to see this. That 67 year old driver simply drifted off the road, then overcorrected. Completely preventable.

Agreed. I'm not defending the guy.

I wasn't implying anything toward you. Sorry if it seemed that way.

I was just reiterating what I read.

its very easy to panic and over-correct when you drop a wheel off the pavement.. dualies like to hop up on the road very quick and cause the vehicle to surge toward the opposite side..

it takes a lot of practice to ride out the course with no gas no brake and attempt to Ease the vehicle back on... and very dependent on the ridge ytou dropped off of..

Yup, I lost a steer tire on my way home when I picked up this bus from the bus barn. Bent the rim while trying to get back on the blacktop.

The skoolie made out alot better than this one did. Havent heard any details on the crash yet but it makes us a little nervous as bus drivers, could so easily happen to any of us. One glance in the mirror because we heard something in the back is all it takes to get distracted.
