Whats the fastest speed you've been thrown from your "horse"?

3 posts in this topic

The other day, I took the atv back to work after dinner. 3 miles of gravel road. As it is an older polaris with the chain drive, when I heard a couple little clicks coming from the front drive area, I figured the front drive chain was too loose. So, I let off down to 35-40 mph. About 10 seconds later, the chain locked on sprocket and the ride began! What started as a slow sideways skid turned violent at about 90 degrees. Long story short, I hit the gravel in a roll and kept with it until I saw the machine stop. No helmet, lucky it it was cool so I had a sweatshirt on. Just a little sore on the side that hit the "dirt". Bent handlebars on atv looks to be the only damage on that. In retrospect, I should've limped it staight to town and bought a lotto ticket, it was obviously my "lucky day".
