And that's where the problem is!!! I know some of you are going to say, I drink and ride all the time and I'm fine. You are the small % of people who can do it there is a bigger % of people who can't!!!

I don't care what you do how long you have rode a quad, your going to crash!! Crap happends!!! I got bucked off my quad twice this weekend. So what! It's going to happen! How many people were killed in car crashes this weekend? There is no motor sport where death or crashes don't happen.

Brian,

I spent the weekend at the Hatfield-McCoy Indian Ridge trail area and I heard of only one serious accident. According to the rumors that one involved a rental ATV that lost its brakes and resulted in a rear end collision and a seroiusly broken arm and ambulance ride. FYI, this was an on-road accident, can't say if alcohol was also part of it.

With just the shear number of ATVs that were in that small area I am surprised there were not more.

We also we at H/M this weekend at the Browning Fork trail system. We stayed in Man,WV. One in our group rolled her Kingquad of the mountain. Luckily she wasn't hurt, just scratches and bruises. It was about 200 yards from the parking lot on a narrow spot of trail. I beleive she cought her tire on a rock on the bank and she rolled over. She stayed on the ground then the bike went off about 150ft steep bank. We were able to drive it back but it needs some TLC!

Yeah, I saw a lot of situations like that. Late Sunday I saw a polaris (I think) being towed back by another ATV, and the whole front suspension looked to be torn off. They had it strapped to back rack of the ATV with it just rolling on its rear tires. The front tires/wheels/hubs? were tied on to the towing ATV. It was quite a sight going down the road. I later saw them push the "remains" onto a trailer with another ATV. I wish I had taken a picture, but didn't want to add to their misforture doing that.
