Tell us about your crash(es)

I lost it my 3rd day out. I went up a mountain and lost it on the way down going into a turn. I went off the trail and it rolled twice. Once right over me. I bent the bars, small tear on the back of the seat, bent Ebrake lever and some scratches on the plastic. I was wearing full gear and only took some scratches and bruises on my arms. I believe it was a lack of experience and skill more than anything. A desert trail can turn ugly with rocks, steep drops/climbs small narrow canyons and lots of other hazards pretty quickly. I've learned to scout a little before I get into trouble.

The worst I had was on my 400ex. I was jumping fmx, when I hit the ramp I let off the gas too early. I came at the ground like a torpedo dropping about 17 ft. out of the air. I did a forward roll off the atv when it impacted. I landed flat on my back while the atv was doing a front flip behind me. I stood up and the atv landed back on its wheels and ran me over. I threw it off me, got back on and jumped again. Haha, o to be young and stupid. Lol

3 weeks ago I was riding my XX in the road ditch and I came up on what looked like a drainage ditch so I braked hard and turned to go up to the shoulder of the road, the quad ejected me and I remember the quad in the air above me and got the heck out of the way. Flipped the quad back on it's wheels and kept riding. Bent the steering stem back and it is cracked half way around. Was lucky to be able to ride it back home. My shin below my knee must have hit the bars on my way off as that hurt and I think I stretched a muscle by my hip. Mostly all that was hurt was my pride. Still haven't got the $$ to get a stem.

I crashed my 700XX the first time in over a year of ownership last time out just over a week ago. Was on a trail I'd ridden countless other times, and must have been going faster than usual or something. Anyway, I was in mid 3rd gear and high-sided it to the left on this banked turn, and the quad flipped to the right. It slammed my right shoulder and chest into the ground directly into this rock sticking out. It was a hard sudden landing, and it all happened so fast it was weird. I immediately got up and took a short break to make sure I was OK and let the birdies stop spinning. Another rider on a dirtbike happened to stop by and helped my buddy upright the quad. The only thing broken was the right front fender from its mounts, the clutch lever rotated down and the left grip was torn. I was in shock for a few minutes, but the I got alright and was able to finish the ride. My right shoulder and chest are still a little sore to this day.

I only have a few on a quad. I could tell stories all day about crashing on dirt bikes, those damn two wheelers are dangerous I tell you! Below is by far the worst crash I ever had on a quad.

Last September at the Silver State 300 I was riding the second to last section, abut 80 miles or so. About 60 miles into it, from what I was told, there is a high speed left hand corner, I clip a rock with the left front tire and cart wheel the quad. Of course, I remember nothing, not even the crash. (A few weeks later, after talking to others who rode the same section, the last thing I remember was about 5 miles before the crash.) Next guy in the race comes along, and I guess I am laying in the middle of the road knocked out with the quad about 30 feet away upside down. I come to about the time he gets to me. Again, I remember none of this! Couple more people stop and want me to wait for help, I told them I was fine and wanted to keep going so we could finish the race. So I got back on the quad and rode 20 miles to the next pit. Oh yeah, of course I do not remember anything about that 20 miles. First thing I really remember is coming in to the pit. Quad was kind of beat up, but my teammates get it back together enough for one of them to ride to the finish.

I get in one of the chase trucks and we all head for the finish to pick up my teammate and quad. I was acting pretty out of it, so everyone decides I should go to the hospital when we get back to town. I only remember some small things about the ride back, not much at all. We get to the ER, I do not even remember getting there, going in, or waiting to be called back. The first thing I really remember clearly is being in the back with the doctor, from here I pretty much remember everything. My right hip is really sore and starting to swell, so the doc takes some x-rays of my hip and a scan of my head to check everything out. Everything is fine, just beat up, need some time to heal. I feel very lucky, it could have been alot worse.

So that was my first time ever in a ER, and I plan on it being my last! Three weeks later I rode in the last race of the year, hip was killing me, but had to ride, we ended up getting second in the year end championship. Almost seven months later, my damn hip is still a little sore!

I've been very, VERY lucky. Most of you have seen where I rolled my quad on me, but I had another somewhat funny near crash.

I was practicing my launches with paddles and going through the gears when on time I mis-judged how little room I had to stop. I was in the top of fifth when I locked up the rear wheels and slid what seemed forever through pea gravel. I slid on through some brush and into a ditch that had only 1 and a half feet of clean water with a hard bottom. I only got wet, put it in first gear and rode it out.

My worst one on the xx was the day from the video I posted where my cousin and I are doing donuts with our legs out trying to hit each other. I had a flat back tire there, b/c earlier that day I was trying to climb this sweet looking gravel hill, that had some snow and ice on it. I had a pretty good launch, got about 2/3s of the way up it and started to turn around b/c I couldn't go any further and hit a little ravine and it just started rolling. I flew off and it rolled over me, and rolled 6 more times b4 getting to the bottom. But being me, I had to try it again, w/ a better launch. However my cousin climbed the hill this time to try and save it if I lost it. Needless to say I got abotu 3/4 of the way up, started turn and hit the damn lil ravine again, and as I stopped b/c my cousin was in the way (otherwise I believe I could of saved it), it started to roll, so I was climbing off the up hill side and my cousin tried to grab the rear well, and as it started rolling he held on and it catapulted him down the hill. After 2 or 3 rolls, it landed on HIM lol. it was a wonderful day. Just got a flat tire, and a few scratches. Amazingly, nothing got bent or anything.

Sounds like you have some pretty strong family ties. I know I wouldn't do that for my cousins.
