RH & CC Testing

#11
I have been told by 'old timers' that the old Asbestos products worked so well also because they had a high? perm rating, i.e. they let vapor get through. Don't know if that is for real.

I do know is Asbestos is expensive to deal with. To do CaCl testing with it on the floor, in California, you need over $2000 just in permits. But the testing companies will do RapidRH testing of asbestos laden floors as they have to disturb just inches of floor space. The limit in CA being 4 s/f where you get into Cal-OSHA requirements.

Think I'd walk away until it was abated, which I have in the past.

The old glues and the old flooring that used asbestos (VAT and such) would breath quite well. My favorite sales girl says "you could stick a shrimp boat to the ocean floor with the old cut-back adhesive".

When you get to be my age, you don't worry about asbestos.... It takes years to get you.... Tongue

You youngsters better watch out though.... Big Grin

Well that picture of me is about 6 years old..... Big Grin

I went 'down' on my Harley and lost a toe.... Exclamation

Don't ride as much as I'd like, but I ride when I can.

My boots saved my feet. I gave it up after 25+ years and lots of miles. Figured sliding 120' on pavement with my Ultra Glide sliding next to me, a fratured sternum and 9 fractured ribs was my swan song. Miss it tho.

Yikes. I always believed you couldn't come off on a Harley. Either because they don't corner than fast so they curb temptation, or because you can hear them coming.

Does this mean my mid-life crisis will have to be serviced by some other obsession? I was all ready to grab me a Sportster or Heritage Classic. Got the thumbs up from the bride as well- she loves going on the back.

I actually dropped mine on my foot while parking it at the hotel we were staying at..... Dodgy

I bumped against a log planter along the building and my foot caught then the bike tipped and my foot twisted under it and was pinned by the bike frame against the log. My foot was being crushed and I couldn't twist around to lift the bike (Ultra with a lot of touring bags on it loaded with junk of course). My wife couldn't lift the bike either. Together we struggled until I finally popped my shoulder out and managed to turn enough to force the bike up enough to get my foot out. I ended up killing my two smallest toes and the surgeon fixed them up into one weird looking toe.

Not a real exciting accident. Big Grin

There's a lot of Whitetail Deer where I live. I see them every day in fact. I have hit a lot of them with cars and trucks, but never with a bike. I ride very slow at dusk and night in my area, and I swear by loud pipes. I had a buddy hit a deer at 75mph on his quite mufflered bike....

Ouch! I wish mine had been that "minor". I'd still be riding. I actually was going only 35-40 mph on a back road outside Pittsburgh when I hit a THICK layer of gravel that I didn't see. Sucked me down and threw me off in a split second and no time to react. Deer are real bad around here too. Like I said, full recovery has taken a year...just what the Doc said. Did I mention the lacerations and road rash?

Yes, that was a boring accident to have JD, a disgrace! If you're going to get mangled toes, you should at least be sliding at 70 mph, under a gas tanker or something, like Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon or whichever movie I saw that stunt in.

I suppose I can't talk. A truck reversed into me in a parking lot. It was a borrowed bike too.

Loud pipes! Exactly right. Some straight Vance and Hines...I don't care who complains about the noise, it's safer. At least, that's a good alibi for wanting to advertise the glorious sound of a big V-twin.

JN, your injuries sound awful. Would have been even more awful if you got one of those annoying, pontificating doctors who preach about the stupidity of riding motorbikes (and they drive Volvos...)
