Just called him and they are sold...

I need a couple wheels bad, I can't drive my SSR...

A dog ran out in front of me the other night, and I had to hit the curb... Needless to say instead of killing the dog it killed the wheels.

Decisions, Decisions.

Let's see. Hit the dog, or, hit the curb? Hit the dog, or, hit the curb? Oops, too late. Hit the dog. Dog gone.

I hope you really don't think hitting a dog is funny. Sure hope you are never in my path and I have the same choice to make. Might need some body and paint work but the wheels would be fine.

Dont think too many animal lovers will find your reply funny either!!!!!!!

Well cleaning guts and gore out from under the hood and body would really suck. I guess this is why we have insurance.!!!!

Anyone who sacrifices a set of wheels for a dog, is alright in book! :thumbs

Bcbear, Lighten up a little. It's Friday afternoon and you take yourself much too seriously. I too would take the curb if I had the time to make that decision. No where in my post did I say that I would intentionally hit the dog. It was not my intent to arouse the ire of you or any other animal lover. If you took it that way, my sincere apologies. Sit back, have a cool refreshment, unpucker a bit, and feel better knowing that I would not intentionally run over a dog, or you, if I could avoid the situation. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

*****

Up here in balmy Wisconsin, with 58 miles on #9035.....shazam.... a white-tail jumps on the road in from of me.....with ditches on both sides.

Now that the shudder is through your spine.....

the brakes work much better than the reviews say they do!

Seemed like I went from 50 to 0 in about 12 feet.......and I appreciated wearing my safety belt.

Mr. Deer thankfully left happy (as did I).

I can envision sitting around the campfire telling this SSR horror story....Hope this doesn't give anyone nightmares....LOL

Bcbear, Origin of the "Dog Gone" phrase.

I just remembered where the "dog gone" phrase originated. It's not politically correct by today's standards so please don't be offended or think I advocate animal cruelty. My father was a WW 2 Navy man and this little poem was a WW 2 standard. He would have a beer or two and quote it when I was a small kid. Here goes: " a dog stood on a burning deck, flames roaring around his neck, hot dog. To quench his firey appetite, he swallowed a a stick of dynamite, dog gone". Perhaps this will help to show that my original post, which used the "dog gone" phrase, was not intended to be as harsh or cruel as you interpreted it to be. I certainly didn't mean it as you apparently took it. Have a good weekend and enjoy all the nice "rides" you have.

Thanks for clearing up the misunderstanding.

I would hate to think someone who likes fine cars would be so cruel as to hurt an animal. As much as I care for my collection of 14 cars and 4 bikes, they can always be repaired or replaced. Once a life is taken there is no bringing it back.

I can now take your advice - grab a cold one and chill for the rest of the evening.

Again, thanks for setting me straight.

Marc

HI Red & Marc,

Just to let you know I don't think anyone of our members here would really want to hurt any living thing.

FYI: I have been told that if you are driving on the highway and an animal darts in front of you... the best thing for you to do is either let up on the gas or hit the brakes or hold on tight and just keep going straight... but don't swerve because it might land yourself into a tree or worse yet another oncoming vehicle.

Ps. I got that bit of advice from a high-mileage highway-traveling guy...

Marc, I know you'll be pleased to know that I've been a proud PETA member since 1960. It's a local Southern chapter whose full name is People Eating Tasty Animals or PETA for short. Just kidding guys and please no grief from the animal rights groups. It was meant to be humor and nothing else!

Animals in the road

Learned 30 years ago, (in the academy), that while driving on the road, if an animal smaller than a deer runs in front of you, you let up on the gas, but never, ever try an evasive manuver. Nine times out of ten, you'll miss the animal, but you'll do serious damage to the vehicle, yourself or others. If the animal is bigger than a deer, bend over and kiss you *** goodby, and say, "Oh Oh, this is going to hurt".
Mike :cool
PS: I'm a big dog lover, would not like to hurt anything, but come hell or high water, I'm going home without a trip to the hospital. :thumbs

I was more concerned with what kind of damage would be done to the front of the truck if I had hit the dog. Not too sure how strong the grill up there is. I had rather replace a couple wheels instead of all that stuff.

I went ahead and bought a set of aftermarket wheels yesterday, and I went with 20" all the way around. I'll post pictures once we get the correct tires for the front.

Thanks Everyone!
Ron

On that same note, if you swerve to avoid an accident and get into a different accident, that second accident puts YOU at fault, in the eyes of` the law, the insurance company to name a couple.
