I was just reading an article that Polaris is stopping selling ATV's and Quads in Australia starting this year. Several ranchers have died in rollovers in the past 10 years and familys have pushed for stricter safety measures like roll bars on all ATV's or SxS's or any recreational off road unit sold. Polaris said the Aussie market is less then 2% for them so. See Ya Later.
Here in Maine from January 1st to current day March 16th we've had 11 snowmobile related deaths on the trails here. All were speeding, 'most' all had been drinking but not all. Most were riders from out of state but several were from Maine. All preventable. Slow down, don't drink.

Government trying to protect people from Darwinism, a futile venture. Idiots will always find some way to hurt or kill themselves. Why else was that show Jackass so popular?

U have to respect these things, u can easily get hurt bad on one before u even know it. Was watching YouTube videos of riders in WV, one family had a 4 seater crew with whole family on it, went threw a mud hole and apparently there was a small down tree in it, it caught in skid pan come up threw back floor board,( driver didn't know cause it was behind in back seat), came threw floor hit his daughter so hard in the side of head it knocked her helmet completely off her head and outta machine, then tree came on up and threw back window before he even knowed what happened, couple inches to left it could have been terrible...she just got scratched up a little luckily..
Just a fluke, probably wouldn't happen again in a million years. But you have to respect them..
Also had a young boy here a few years ago cut to sharp to turn into pasture and dropped off the edge of terricoter pipe rolled it over on him,( this was a John Deere gator) when they found him fire ants had eat him up.. gotta be careful some things just happen
