Hello from the Midwest!
« on: June 19, 2017, 07:12:02 AM »
Hello fellow forum members;
I'm not a driver, just a fan of COE's for a long time and sure miss seeing them on the road, but as I understand it, they were tough on the drivers. Looking forward to the Iowa 80 Jamboree in a month and also looking forward to reading and learning more about these fantastic machines

Welcome! I can relate, love the COEs as well. As far as rough ride, depends on the truck. Air ride goes a long way, and the modern versions used in Europe and Australia, from hearing comparisons, are pretty smooth. If you can and want to, would love to see some photos from Iowa 80 as well! Was hoping to go this year but have another trip instead.

Hi Jon;
 Thanks for the welcome.
 I'll be taking lots of photos, so I'll upload them after I'm back home. I drive from Milwaukee to O'Hare in Chicago 5 days a week and I'm always on the look out for interesting rigs. I do see the occasional Cab Over heading either north or south on I-94, but I miss seeing them..

Milwaukee to O'Hare.......not a pleasant trip IMHO but quite a lot of interesting trucks heading every which way plus a few truck stops and an Oasis to boot. I always enjoyed taking photos in this area but the traffic's murder. >:( Welcome aboard & looking forward to your posts. :)
