about 2:00 am we were comng home from riding all night. We were riding down paved road with no light on, the moon was out a little. the guy in front of me slowed down to take a turn and I didnt see him until the last second. I locked my brakes up, and my front grabbed hard. my fron left tire hit his back right tire and it sent me and the bike flying. I had a helmet on but still ended up with a scar on the chin and some of my teeth were smashed. this was a year and a half ago, I have had 4 root canals, 2 extractions, probobally like 5 crowns and soon I get 3 implants (I call em bolt on teeth) to replace the ones I shattered (at least they were all back teeth though!) anyhow I had a huge gouge in the side of my helmet from the road, I would have been dead without it...

I was riding my quad about 20 mph down a trail and an xr 200 with no brakes came around a turn about 50 mph.His bars came over mine and broke both bones in my arm.

As I remember some of my less fortunate rides I am reminded that these kind of posts are exactly what greedy lawyers and others that seek to abolish our sport want to see. Many proud people bragging {almost} about their war wounds. Although most of us galdly sit around the campfire and share our experiences, both good and bad, the ones posted in a public forum cannot serve the better good because they can be used to say that the sport is inherantly dangerous. If a person wants to relate such a story and then explain how it should have been done to avoid the mistake. Some in this posting have done that by saying...'this bad thing happened because I didn't follow the rules'. This sort of comment followed by a warning to always adhere to good riding practices will only strengthen our sport.

OK, then if lawyers read, both my grandfathers died from lung (is that the organ that you breathe with?...am I right?) cancer because they were smoking. Sounds more dangerous to me than some guys crashing once in a while.
I'm not bashing you Holyman (sadly enough, you are right), but I like this post...it's kinda fun, and *lawyers, please read and note* even after 10 years of riding (and I'm 18 now), I never crashed seriously. The biggest injury I have suffered was an ankle.... (when the ligaments are elongated, I don't know how that's called), that kept me from running for 1 week. Have I been safer? luckier? I don't know, but just to tell the lawyers that you can ride, have fun, and not hurt yourself!
Ride on!
