I flip it straight back on a hill went all the way over an back on its wheels it fell back on a tree about 6" in diameter an ripped it out if the ground roots and all it ended up on top of the tree.It cracked the top pushed the roll bar that goes over your head down about 8" an pushed the front bumper back am bent the two roof clamps on the back. I hit my head on the roll cage an my shoulder on something. All three of the seats came out an was laying on the ground.

Yeah, i never wear one either, i dont drive crazy or in areas where im gonna wreck my Viking, there was a time years ago, when on atv, where i was going up a steep hill, and at the top i accidently gassed it, front end came off the ground, i feel off to the bottom, the atv rolled down, and filliped over, and the handlebars hit me in the face and broke my nose, i wish i had a helmet that day for sure.

Well at least its salvageable and you are ok thats the most important part. Hope everything is well.

On another note how many of you have insurance on your viking or outdoor vehicles?

I have it on my Can-am, ONLY because my credit Union requires it now...BS...

When i used to get atvs, i used go finance through the dealer, then refinace it at the credit union for a lower rate, but with the Viking i didn't because i wouldnt save any money at all, having to pay for insurance every year..

I bought it to ride not to sit an look at it. The hill I wrecked on many people have went up it on 4 wheelers an utv's. It could happen to you or anybody anytime.

New rule for the forum, next time someone crashes first make sure everyone involved is ok, and then take some pics. I don't care who you are, everyone likes to see carnage

Oh a wreck is inevitable if you do any kind of serious riding. I've been fortunate and have been able to pull out some saves. Ive only hit the dirt 1 time thankfully. On my old Polaris sport 400 2 stroke. Power sliding at 35 to 40 mph is very tricky lol. Its **** when the dirt jumps up and bites ya. Luckily I walked away from it rolled the quad back over and kept goin. I buy my stuff to ride as well and not let it sit around.
