Dred,

You may want to check/clean your intake filters to the engine on the bus and bike.

Just a thought.......

Never heard of them, but that is all they had in stock, and I am VERY pleased so far

Anyone know the mass of a bus, moving at 1 mph? After trying to stop mine by holding onto the mirror, I think it might be just a bit more than my mass + strength x determination/fear. Pretty funny, I knew this was gonna happen eventually – I forget to set the air-brake(there is no position – Park), walk away, and do not notice the bus moving. Well it happened today. I park, walk in to check out the coin laundry, walk thru and return to see the bus moving………..




In fact, it moved about half the distance you see to the nice, new, white pickup. I ran, and after realizing I was NOT superhuman, I jumped inside and stomped the brakes. Pretty funny after all was said and done, but very scary during.

The Moral:

Always pull this lever before exiting the vehicle.



Now, back to my laundry. What are YOU doing today?

E=mc2 --- Good thing the "c" was so low cause there was enough "m" there to do some damage. Glad to hear it turned out OK. Hope the laundry did too.

Keep on Bussin'!

I guarantee anyone witnessing this would have laughed. Bonehead move started it, and another bonehead move, almost ended it poorly. Luckily the wind was not blowing really hard, and the truck was 60 feet away - always good to have big margins for error.
