well......day started out really well. Took my wife out to Knolls (sand dunes and dry lake beds in western Utah) to ride the ATV's. Very nice morning into early afternoon. This was Laurie's second time riding in her life. She did fantastic on the sand and the hard pack.

Then it all changed in a flash. She got cocky. We went out on the dry lake bed and she decide to get the bike into 4Th gear and she decided to turn way to sharp to head back to where I was. I watched my wife turn into Superwomen flying about 30 feet from the ATV that was now rolling over 3 times. She landed VERY HARD on her right shoulder and snapped her clavicle in half. (even the ER doctor was impressed how bad she snapped it) When I got to her side I could see her eyes had rolled back into her eye socked. Thank God I bought her a very good helmet. She was out for about 7 minutes.

The thing she was the maddest about was she can't ride for 6 weeks....I love this women. Her ATV goes to the ATV doctor on Tuesday....it needs help too.

We are home, she is still high from the Morphine and other stuff they gave her.

I was surprise how she was upset that she wasn't going to be able to ride for awhile. Yesterday I ordered her a new helmet. She wants her damaged helmet in her office to show her friends why you wear a helmet :yes:

update.......no surgery yet. The Doctor wants to give the bone more time to see if it will heal by itself.

That's the good news. Bad news. We were in Puerto Vallarta on vacation and my wife slipped on some marble stairs and might have broke her tail bone.

      I need to figure out how to clean/fix or replace my neutral switch assembly On my 2008 Yamaha big bear 400 as generally the neutral light doesn’t come on when it is in neutral. To get it to come on I have to wiggle the foot shifter and hold it in just the right spot.
      I have googled it and can’t find much on the 400’s. I can’t find a service manual online and the parts manual is super vague.
      I think it is in the right side engine cover area, but not certain. 
       Any help would be great. thanks

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?
