Beginning of last season, my father flipped a brand new rancher backward on a steep hill, he hit a rut.

I have broken three helmets in spec-freaken-tacular crashes........... ok not really but the last one was pretty good. I did the same thing your dad did on my old Honda 4x4. I got right to the top of a hill and it wheelied over on me with two friends holding the front rack. It was a tank and it landed on me twice on the way back down the hill. It broke my helmet in two places and ripped my boot off and flung it almost 20 feet into the creek. I don't have any pics of me but i have an old grainy photo of the quad.

The rear rack was bent into the tire.....by my helmet and my shoulder. It flipped up into the air and landed on me about half way down the hill.

The rack was bent so bad we had to torch it off, it also broke the swingarm mount out of the frame and bent the bars and the rear shock.

It hurt.

Ha no, well at least not that one in particular. It had more to do with the fact that i rode with a bunch of guys that all had sport machines, Banshee's 300ex Warrior Blaster........ i was the only guy on a 4x4 and it was big and heavy and slow. I used to run over everything with it when we made trails, we even made a special bumper from scratch.

I will have to check the archives for some good crash photos, most of the stuff i have are just pictures of bent up machines
