My arse kissed the tar just before 7AM this morning, donít make the same mistake.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. T. E. Lawrence

Probably the slipperiest substance known to man, Diesel on tar.

Excepting politicians of course.

Glad you're OK. Thanks for the warning. I'll be out there tomorrow. Should be okay by then.

the one and more serious of the two accidents that I've had over the years, was also diesel in a turn - the other was a cage making a u-turn :xxbah:

Diesel spills can also be huge fun, during the late 80's I encountered a very big diesel spill in the road between Orkney and Vaal Reefs no 9 shaft.

Even a Datsun 120Y can pull endless wheelspin on tar with 4 guys on board......... :ricky: :thumleft:
