Damn that coulda been bad! Back in the day I had the bearings on the left front steer of a Peterbilt conv. Seize up ...letting the front left tire and rim spin off the axle at 60 mph and 40,000 lbs on the trailer. The tire and rim bounced up and smashed the mirror, dropping the axle n spindle onto the highway, cocking the hood up in front of me, I actually broke the side window with my head when I got whipped into it. I left a 700 foot, groove in I-75 before it stopped. After it stopped an ole hippie came walking up with the bearings, lock nut, etc. all melted together and smoking....on a stick. He looked at me and said Far out! Helluva sparks show...u lose this!
Anyway, glad u didnt go thru that on a 2 wheeler....coulda been alot worse!
