All right we have all done some dumb things but can u beat this. After a great Fathers Day ride, the wife and kids off to the bathroom I load up the quads. I drive my quad up on the trailer and go a bit to far. I put the quad into reverse hit the gas but jumps back into drive. My front wheels are heading over so I gun the throttle to get good clearance as to not get bottom hung up on trailer. All is well but front plants down and I end up vertical on the front tires and quad starts to go over. I try to jump off and leg gets pinned between handle bars and quad expecting to her a crack when a tree catches the quad and I get out. The guys in the staging area were great, helped me out and all tried not to laugh to hard. I knew I made their day. Quad is fine just my ego bruised. Who can beat that!!!

Ha man that sounds like hell! A few years back my dad was trying to take our 650 off of the trailor on christmas eve. Needless to say, it was cold. The throttle was stuck and while in reverse he put a lot of pressure on it. It came loose, then stuck again while pushed all the way in. The atv (and my father) shot off of the trailor and hit a truck, throwing my dad onto the ground. It climbed the side of the truck and then drove in a circle and ran right over my dad!!! It kept going and finally stopped on its nose after it climbed a tree and almost flipped. It was my dad, my brother and I. Ill skip the details but we pushed it onto the trailor & went home. My dad had no broken bones, just a little soreness. The culprit was a lack of some kind of fluid, not sure what exactly. That atv is now my favorite due to the power!

One of my buddies tried to jump his 4-wheeler out of the back of his truck backwards. LOL. He thought it would land on the tires. I told him it wouldn't work, but he wouldn't listen. He landed on the back of the ATV and then it flipped over on top of him. It was a 4wd truck with big tires and a lift, so it was pretty high off the ground. I still laugh when I think about that. LMAO. Reverse is geared too low, plus he didn't have room to get his speed up. I can't believe he thought he could do that. LOL. He didn't get hurt, though.

climbed a 12 foot hill, only to have a small chid pull in front of me at the top , hard right turn to avoid the smearing of child , sideways back down same hill only to land before the rancher did, it landed softly on me , 3 broken ribs on right side, 1 colapsed lung, and a dislocated shoulder, but the rancher was not hurt and the kids dad felt like hell, great day it was !
