So I was riding around with my friends last night and we were heading our way back home. I decide to have A little bit more fun while I could. So I do some wheelies while I could. But what I didn't realize was that my grips were twisting while I was riding and i have the grip "donuts" cut in half so wouldn't get caught on the throttle. But the grips spun slowly but surely far enough back around to get caught on the throttle in the wide open position. So I said one more wheelie for the heck of it and sure enough the throttle got stuck wide open in 3rd gear going 40ish and rips me off the bike when the grab bar hits the ground. As soon as I stop getting thrown on the ground I my self 20feet from where I initially fell off the bike. My friends told me I was getting tossed around like a rag doll and I did 1 front flip(more like a mid air summer salt) they told me I slid and rolled the whole time I was going through thorn bushes. Also, my right shoe flew off and tore my laces off and so did my helmet(it was strapped, but probably not tight enough.) Lastly my arm hit a tree to I think. I'm just really sore, cut, bruised and currently my neck is super stiff and sore. Nothing serious but I felt like sharing. The damage to the quad is a cracked sub frame and damaged plastics. I defiantly wished i had my tether kill switch attached on my wrist.

If the pictures are on the inappropriate side please let me know.

I guess you can call it the crash site.


Quad landed here.


Here is my arm that hit the tree after it is cleaned up.

No roses ahah just wild thorns bushes. I have never seen one rose on those thorns I flew into. I have been riding there since I was 6 and never seen one rose. But it doesn't really matter a thorns are thorns right? Aha

All of this was were most of the damage was done too me. All of that has thorns in there.


But thanks for the kind words and I hope to get her back up and going again!

These are the new ones

After the incident, I decided to get my self new gear after realizing crashing can happen to every one at any given moment and I'm not invincible... Lol!

After all, I am lucky I am able to ride again.
If I had hit a tree with my body full on, it could have been much worse.

Here is me doing a little jumping.
It took me a couple months to get her up to riding condition again, so I'm a bit rusty and sort of have to used to the quad again and the new smaller front tires.

Anyway, the quad and I are all good now! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1409398705.209243.jpg
