Jiggles flying auger

12 posts in this topic

Hey jigglestik I read about your auger
flying out of your truck I have one thats right up there with that Monday night
My buddy and I were on our way home from
red with my truck a snowmobile traier
with our six wheelers on it we had just stopped at M&H gas station in Grand Rapids
and checked straps and everything out
and proceded on our way home down the
river road really rough this time of year
got about ten miles and were BSing &
whatever when I feel this thump
& bump!! but there was no Bump there I
looks in the rearview mirror and I see his headlight pointing up in the air and then
down and it swerving down the road behind
us I almost threw up right then and there
so I turn around go back a ways and there its sitting up in someones front yard
ON ITS WHEELS!!! It missed two road signs
by about six inches each a telephone line
box and came to stop about two feet from
a light pole! WHAT LUCK!!!
If it would have been mine it would be in a
hundred pieces right now
WOW what a trip Well anyhow the ****
strap broke I'm getting heavier ones
for mine next time just thoght I'd let
you know youre not the only one this good stuff happens to RR

hey,that would have sucked. i have to confess though the auger after all that bouncing and tumbling at about 50 miles per hour, handled it pretty well. i just had to bounce on the extension a couple times to get rid of the built in shooks shake affect. she fired rite up and never missed a beat. how much did your little escapade cost? brake levers, handle bars,fenders, rims, axels can get kinda spendy. i used to haul bikes around back when they made the good straps, and i still doubled them up. now days its 3-4-5 straps per machine and making sure it's in gear, and setting the parking brake.that's just on the auger. can't be to careful.see ya on the ice---jigglestick---

i feel for ya red. I lost mine on the intersection behind the mall on 38. slid out on the tounge of the trailer and dented the S#$% outa my tailgate. i feel lucky tho, it didn't come off on the corners by McKinney lake. or up on 38. dont know how long i had gone with that broken strap. but at least it was some excitement on a boring day.

Kelly , now "RoadKill" had spied some sunglasses in the road. It is in his nature to recover those items that others discard. Being the spry and nimble treasure hunter that he is,, he mearly slid of the back of the machine without me noticing!!! smile.gif( and we were going about 40 mph) He barely even made a dust cloud!!( of course we were on the pavement)!!!! wink.gif
