Buddy of mine went up a steep ditch bank when we were riding Saturday.

I turned around in time to see his front wheels going over backwards.

Luckily he was walking it up the bank, not riding it.

New parts already ordered.....

That could have been serious had he been riding it. Bad enough as it is though.

as they say, can always replace a material item, so, glad he didn;'t get hurt
seen a few of these crashes that didn;t go so well
so always good when one can walk away and in time I gather even laugh about it LOL
after all
what fun would riding be if NO one ever crashed or did something silly??

This past Saturday my buddy almost did the exact same thing climbing out of a steep v-shaped wash, with his '06 Foreman. He came out of it in a balanced wheelie and teetered at the top, then tipped forward. Luckily no crash, so we can laugh about it.

I freaked out until I saw him standing there and realized he hadn't been riding it when it went over backwards.

He had a cooler full of beer on a rear drop basket on it, so it was just asking for a tip over going up a steep grade.

New bumper will be here today. I think I can straighten the front rack, so hopefully he'll get away with about $200.

First ride after I had all of this crap off putting a winch on it. LOL

Should have put something like a Husky on the front, would never have flipped then :)

His Yeti kept the Colorado koolaide nice and safe.

We've given him hell about that ******* rolex, amd it continued after the mishap.

"Good thing you had that $350 cooler or you would have lost $10 worth of beer!"
