i could lecture about chainsaw safety, discuss 'kickback', proper ppe, and the list goes on and on....but this is an unfortunate incident and my well wishes go out to those affected.

As like many motorcycle accidents are reminders to other riders, hopefully this can be used as a wake up call to amateurs that a chainsaw is not just another simple power tool. Also, if anyone is interested in chainsaw safety, i'd be more than happy to sit them down and go over it with them.

4-wheels may be a privilege, but 2-wheels are a passion.
