One of our biggest fears about riding on two way trails came true last weekend, came around a blind corner and had a head on collosion (you can hear a faint crunch noise at 0:37). My buddy Doug on his KTM dirtbike hit a guy on his 700xx head on. Both riders were okay, suffered minor hand/wrist jams. Doug has bruises on his chest and knee and he was wearing knee guards and a chest protector! Proof proper PPE pays off.

The dirt bike aftermarket radiator guard was bent to hell, and the radiator suffered a crack (would have been destroyed without the 1/4" aluminum guard).

As far as I know, the 700xx suffered a bent tie rod. The control arms looked fine, but I don't know if any further damage was done. He had one hell of a set up, so he might be a member on here.

Be cautious on blind corners and public riding areas!

I am sorry for both riders and glad everyone is ok. I remind all riding with me when we are riding on two way trails. "dont ride beyond the speed you can stop in half the distance you can see, or be prepared to leave the trail".
