So im bored, heres my story.
Last year september, we we camping and quading up by payson, az on the rim, and we were having a good time. About the 4th day there my gf and i had an argument or something, so i decided to go our riding alone. ( bad idea also.) I had a 96 Polaris 400 sport. It was very nice 2 stroke, twist throttle quad. It was also raining pretty hard, AND I wasnt wearing a helmet.
So i go out and im doing about 40-50 mph pn this dirt road, and i hit this jump that i dont see. Well it was all good, but when i came down to land, my front right tire hit a big puddle as my left tire stayed on solid groung. This caused the bike to flip, throwing me off.
I ended up being thrown about 30 feet, rolled 10 times and skid onmy face another 5-10 feet. My quad rolled into a tree.
I was laying on the ground for i dont know how long. Then another group of riders came, and saw me. The quad was still running so they drove that back to my camp and put me in a rhino and drove me back as well. My gf and her mom drove me down to the hospital which was about 45 mins away.
I was in the hospital about 7 hours, had a bunch of ct scans x rays and everything, but luckily nothing was even broken!!! My face didnt turn out so well, and my left side was pretty torn up. My hospital bill ended up being 21,000 dollars.
Moral of the story, Always ride with other people. Always wear protective gear, espessially helmet, and BE SAFE!!
Heres pics of what my face looked like after a day or 2.
