I wonder if they drew straws to see who was in the car.

Off Topic A place for you CBR junkies to boldly go off topic. Almost anything goes.

I wonder if they drew straws to see who was in the car.

Mattie, if you ever get bored with your day to day route, you can give this a whirl.

Pffft, Renault trucks... the suspension bottoms out in the smallest bumps...

I do have to confess there are days I could consider trying that from a motorway offramp, the fall is just a wee bit too long...

Joking aside, the truck must have had the original air spring seat removed and replaced with one that has at least four point harness, otherwise the driver was catapulted to the sleeping compartment above him. I had a Renault Midlum before the Man, it had leaf springs in front, didn`t take much to hit your head on the roof if a speedbump caught up on you or sth.

I showed it to the wife and she just rolled her eyes and shook her head. Women, what do they know?

My wife rolls her eyes and shakes her head to just about everything I do so I've long ignored that... why does it seem that all fun is either forbidden or morally questionable? Or do I just have a quirky taste...

Would you jump your truck over a moving vehicle for vast amounts of YouTube glory?

I dunno. My wife does exactly the same thing. She's a shoe junkie and I'm an adrenalin junkie. We both have our vices. Except I don't have to have a rack to hold all my bikes.
