So I was racin today and was coming around a corner 3rd gear tapped when I got stuck splitting two gnarly ruts...high centered and my FRONT stopped instantly...my rear end decided to continue on and ended up pile driving me into the dirt. I never thought my quad would be able to do a stoppie like that...but it did...and it hurt like a mother.

Well this is my stem...that hit the ground about a half a foot away from my head....I was lucky. There was a lot of force slamming down...

it'll buff out.

how does the frame look around there? i know everytime i bent a stem it would always tweak the frame as well.

We checked and everything seems ok...I raced again today and it seemed to be handling the same.

I wish I coulda rode it out drummer....it was in the middle of my second moto and I was battling it out with 2 guys....I tipped the quad back over only to find that my bars were on my gas tank.

Damn bro, your lucky you didn't get hurt. Glad to hear your already back racing.

Kinda sounds like (R.I.P. Jeremy Lusk's) crash in a way, someone was watching over you.
