Yahoo news had a couple of bike crashes in the Pittsburgh area. One on I-70 and the other on I-79.

Anybody know what happened?

The one on 79 was a TOTALLY bald tire with at least a foot long patch of cords showing blew out. That one was a case of rider stupidity! The news listed them as being in critical condition, but the couple riding with them said they had minor injuries and would be ok. They were heading from the Smoky's back to Canada. I didn't see anything about the one on 70

Thanks for the reply. I see a couple more guys actually got killed last night.

Those wrecks were at 2:30 a.m. and 3:15 a.m.. Nothing much to add to that, huh?

How sad that someone would take a chance on a bald tire.
When my tires get to the ware bars, I get rid of them, can't imagine running them any further.
