that really sucks what happened

I know this is a Quad forum and this was on a motorcycle but from eyewitness statements and my brother being only a few seconds behind me here is what I believe happened. I pulled out of a resteraunt where we stopped for lunch. Pulling out I turned right and went up a short hill and into a long right hand turn. For some reason I began to wobble. I wound up standing the bike up and crossed the double yellow. When this happened I struck a car head on. We were both doing around 50MPH so it was about a 100MPH impact. I damaged the undercarriage, the bumper, grill, hood and windshield. I set off the air bags and disabled the car. On the bike, I wound up tearing the seat off with my legs. I also broke the handle bars with my pelvis and tore off the front fairing and windshield. As I was flying through the air I glanced off the windshield and landed about 30 feet from the car, unconscious and busted up bad. I don't remember any of that day and my brain has blocked several weeks around that time. As far as what happened to me, the list is as follows: Broken pelvis both in half and the left leg socket is broken, cracked the right leg socket and broke my tail bone loose, I broke 4 ribs and punctured my right lung, even with a helmet, I had 3 brain bleeds and a concusion, I broke a bone in my left wrist and have tendon damage in my left hand and forearm, there is also nerve damage in my left leg and I have trouble movimg my left foot, I seperated the A/C joint in my right shoulder and have pain in the rotator cuff of my left shoulder, this doesn't even include the soft tissue damage. Then while in the hospital, I developed a blood clot and had to have a filter put into the main vein against my spine just below the kidneys. I have been through more than 9 hours of surgery and now in physicical therapy. This is what I can piece together. I may never really know what happened. As for the bike, the insurance company totaled it.

Man that would suck atleast your still alive. I hope you have a full recovery and you can get back riding again.I have a friend that was in a bad bike accident. He had a 93 year old man back out right in front of him. He was in icu for three months and them rehab for another three. His whole left side was busted up and he got a blood clot in his brain. He's a lot better now he graduated college and can drive but he never got back on a bike again.

Well like your friend, I too am not going to ride motorcycles anymore. I have too much repair work and metal in me now to chance it. Even riding quads I am sure I will be taking it a little easier.

      Hey I have a 97 bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) that i bought for 1000 last June and sunk another 1000 into it already.  When i went to look at it, the seller had warmed it up before hand (he was riding it when I got there).  it ran good so i bought it and took it home that evening... next morning it wouldn't hardly start.  I discovered the carb was clogged, there was chunks of rust in the fuel valve, the choke lever was missing and other things.  I have since cleaned the carb and replaced the fuel valve and gas lines and cleaned out the gas tank and cap.  
      Enough background on it, the problem is this:  It floods if i push it past half throttle in 4th and 5th gear even going downhill and shifting correctly.  It also has to idle and warm up when you first start it which is really annoying now that its cold...  It also smokes blue smoke for about 15 seconds when started cold-  does not smoke at all once warm but the exhaust still smells like burnt metal.  A friend told me that it didn't have enough compression.  I also found out that the valves are a common cause for low compression on Kawasakis..  I have never adjusted valves before-  the most I've ever got into a engine was a head gasket on a riding mower so I'm new to this.  My goal is to get this bike running and starting cold like a top-  should i tear down and rebuild the top end?  What should i try first?  I tore the carb apart and rebuilt it and fiddled with the air screw and nothing changed.  I also ordered a compression test kit that should be coming in soon.

      Ive also considered just selling it for like $500 and taking the hit-  Id rather not sink too much more into this machine..  lol

      I am new to this site. I found this site while researching solutions to my father-in-law’s atv. Impressed with the amount of knowledge being passed. Hope I can help others in the future.
       
      thanks

      Hello there, i am wanting to know, what would be a good 4 wheeler with a manual transmission?  Either a real manual with a clutch, or a semi automatic transmission. Either 2 or 4WD will do.  What i do want is one that has a rack at each end and can pull a small trailer.   So what are your suggestions? I am open to most any brand though Linhai is the only one from China i would buy.    
         So far it looks like Arctic Cat is overwhelmingly what fits what i'm looking for, but like i said, i'm open to almost any make. If there is any rivalry over brands count me out, i like them all.   What i do want is one that will last through farm use, hauling feed sacks and so forth.
