From FB….this is the shit that makes me want to ride offtrail…

 

This was the third close call today and this was too close. You people need to slow down in corners. This happened today in Newberry, I was as tight as I could be and someone smoked me head on at 45. “Ride right” they say. I was all the way right. You guys need to slow down. Please.

 

Well my absolute worst nightmare came true, and I’m lucky I’m typing this. I worry about my dad everytime he goes riding because of this, I will always lead my group because of this reason. I got hit head on on my side of the trail by someone on a rental sled FLYING around 40-50 mph easy. My sled is mangled. My back is re- injured and possible broke thumb, in very sore. I think I’m gonna get into boating and stick to the mountains on the sled.

Not surprised at all. Bad part is I see people who, “have been riding for years” do the same shit. It’s one of the biggest reasons why I don’t trail ride nearly as much as I use to. If the off trail was good all of the time in Michigan, or I could afford to go out west a bunch, I wouldn’t even trail ride anymore.

If I ever have an accident with someone this is how it would look for me as well.  

Had my closest call of the season last weekend when I came tight around a corner (As I always do) and someone was cutting it short on their LEFT side if the trail.  My son who didn't see how close it was, said the guy was slowed down and nearly stopped by the time he went by him with that "I just shit my bibs" look on his face.... STAY RIGHT PEOPLE!!!  In ALL corners - even if that means you have to slow the fuck down!

the little dealerships back then were cool, gas stations and hardware stores selling sleds as a sideline.    just about all of them have disappeared or had to grow up since then.   I parked a few weeks back at what was Petes Garage which was a cat dealer for decades but prob been 15 years since they closed now.
