Howdy friends,

Goofing around as I do, blowing off some steam after work and doing some donuts on the Rancher, I came as close as you can come to rolling over...but saved it. :) Here's the footage. By the way, these new 25" Kenda Bearclaw tires really bite. I love them!

"Buy your guardian angel a beer..." That made me laugh. True though.

WOW! Glad you saved it, and great job catching it on video in slow-mo!
Yes, me too. In over 3100 miles now I haven't turned it over or put it on it's side, or any other sort of "wreck" for that matter. Here's hoping for another 3100 wreck-free miles.

Dam! That was pretty close, good save though!
Yes, there's a fine line between "epic fail" and "epic save." I stayed on the right side of that line this time around.

Yep, it saved my bacon. Kinda like how the monster trucks do it, they're going over and then they peel back hard the other direction and save it. I got lucky.

Looks like all those miles and seat time came in handy, LOL
You know, I think it's true. I've spent enough time (330 hrs) in the saddle that I do have a solid feel for what it's going to do and how it's going to handle. The only thing that has recently changed that is my new tires that are taller, and have more grip.

taller tires also raise your center of gravity, making tipping over easier don't forget!
