laid it once it's side , and several almost side tip overs where trees held me from going over ... all cosmetic damages [un-repaired at the moment] .. well the front lower fender has been repaired on each side do to tree limbs getting in there and ripping them off the mount screws [as in torn out holes] ... so mostly road rash as any woods rig gets in 5000 miles

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

couple year ago i went ride with my ac 650 atv. we have 800meter long tarmac straight in our village.after two pint of beer I was going to try to wheelie all the straight. 100meter before straight ends i noticed that my glove was between the throttle grip... when speed was about 90km/h
I fell on my stomach, and I dragged 20 meters along the tarmac. atv dropped back to tires and stopped in field. only rear light was broken after all

I hit a stump on a turkey trail one of the guys I use to know liked. bent the front tie rod, they replaced the rack under warranty. and at the same time it bent the rear bearing carrier and ripped the bolt hole and bent the lower a arm on the same side. I got it back and the next weekend it ripped the rear diff out of the frame and broke two axles. needless to say after that got fixed it became a Wild Cat and the rest is history. I have had zero issues with my WC.
