Talking Snow (?) pizza run 2013

Thanks Scott for another great run. A bunch of great people. I hope someone will post some pictures. I forgot the camera again.

My tow loop tie down loop failed sending the shackle rocketing into the center of UB's spare (a perfect spot really) with velocity to deform and bash off his license plate, bend the bracket and make a divot in the rim. It could have ended really badly. Its clear that my loop had cracked most of the way through earlier. I think they are fine tow points, just needing to be part of preventative maintenance. They get smacked on rocks a lot.

Edit: I took the photos down because I want to do some more research on them and not hijack an otherwise all-fun run thread! I'll start a new thread later.

It was fun.... May have to do another run in the next month or two when there's a little more snow. Or we could hit the St. Vrain Trail!!!

Looks like you guys had a great time! That tow hook failure is pretty scary... Lets call those tie down loops from now on.
Cheers,
Matt
