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.

      Hi guys I have a 2003 Arctic 250 4X4 it starts idles and runs great for about 10 min. then it spits and sputters and dies but it starts right up like nothing happened idles good till you give gas and it does it again let off the gas and it's idling great again this goes on for about 15 to 20 min. and then it takes off runs good all day like nothing was wrong.
      I cleaned the carburetor it looked like a new one inside found a little gunk in one orifice, new air filter no crimped lines air line to tank good I did put a meter on the battery idling it said 16.5 V that's high I think would a voltage regulator cause this?
      Suzuki shop wanted to sale me a stator for $556.00 but said it could be something else also thought I'd see what you guys say about it
      Thanks
