Thanks to all

I had insurance so replacing it is no concern. It felt good hugging my two sons this morning too ! No broken bones and it just got the skin on my knee as it passed through the dash. Pushed the dash,steering wheel and front left tire back toawards me about 8 inches . I had about 350-400 PBS of gear in the back too.

I wandered onto the shoulder of the road while looking behind me at a jacket that had just blown out of the bed onto the road . Rode the ditch out for 20-30 feet. Tryin to get it settled down and as soon as I got it halfway stable the concrete covert showed up. Had just started to hit the brakes when I hit. My left foot pushed right through the floorboard from the pressure of impact

The good lord was with me that day guys.....I had a little voice remind me to put on the seatbelt about 30seconds before it happened. I'm a blessed man, and can say the Teryx is built pretty safe.

I'm on an I phone now.....but will get pics up tonight when I can get helped. To the PC

Here are the pics....the frame is bent in the middle in a "U" shape, and where the front drivers lower A-arm connects...its bent in like crazy too. You can really tell when you see the pic of my wife in the drivers seat.

I was one heck of a ride for sure......dead stop from 40mph into a concrete covert....Seat belts fellas ! Even when you are not riding hard ! I was just cruising down a county road.....not even to the trails yet.

Yeah, Im still feeling it

I can finally shut my jaw all the way today, but Ive been running on about 2-3 hours of sleep a night for the past few days. Knee has been keeping me up, heading to the family doctor tomarrow to get some better pain meds.

Sarah was hysterical when she arrived at the scene, I called her and told her it was bad and she needed to hurry.....she beat everyone else and she was the farthest away. Once she sat in it and realized how much damage it had taken and how close to death I was....she started crying.

Ill say it again fellas....seatbelt SAVED MY LIFE that day !

Unbelievable, this could have been a lot worse. I am glad your alive. You are right about the seat belts, 4-point harness here.

I hope you get well soon. There is a bright side to this story. You get to shop for a new machine. all the more reason for a speedy recovery....

Yep....Ive been REALLY eyeballing the 09 Rhino 700's. Im just wondering how the kids fit in the bed of one. Any insight is extremely welcome ! The Teryx was 58" wide...and I see the Rhinos are 54"...thats only 2" loss on both sides....am I missing something ? They seem to LOOK much narrower !

Is everyone happy with the power Rhinos have ? (perhaps I should start a new thread for this discussion).

Ive never really like the sound of polaris machines..... Arctic cats are too wide......Big reds are to damn ugly..... Guess that leaves another Teryx or a Rhino ?


PS, Feeling better everyday...thanks to all for the positive words !
