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:

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      It’s been a pleasure serving all of you. I can not ride anymore. My illness has turned to the worst and I can barely walk anymore. I will still be here helping where I can. I might just get an oddsey and work the sh!t out of it. But I’m done. I didn’t want to be in this situation. But I have to take it. It’s been so much fun here guys!

      Looking at buying a used ATV and was curious as to what the average lifespan is on one? I was browsing ebay and I saw one with 120 hours on it. I'm not sure if that is a lot or a little? Saw another with 1400 miles for a reasonable amount of money and another that looked better but had 4200 miles on it.
      How many miles or hours is too much? I'm looking at 4x4 ATV's for carrying deer stands etc into the woods and hopefully carrying deer out
