This shows the importance of wearing a helmet and also keeping your hands on the wheel in a roll over.

If he had rolled the other way; his hands would have went in the same direction...and the importance of not throwing your safety net on the floor (or removing it) would have become all to apparent also.

We rode with (and behind) a group of Rhinos when they first came out and one could see very plainly that a lot of people were going to get hurt from involuntary reflex actions right from the start.

That should definitely be a good lesson for the use of Helmets.

Thanks for posting Gary.

Good post! I know first hand how even with a roll cage you should wear a helmet!

back in jan of ’10 when we had a snow me and a buddy were on his mule and just doing 10mph, we turned and started sliding and i guess it hit something and flipped on its side. i busted my head open on the roll cage and had to get 6 stitches right above my right temple. oh and all ways wear the the seat belts i did not have the lap belt on at the time. I don’t think it would have done much any ways, but it may have helped.


Unless i’m going yard work(picking up rocks/sticks moving stuff) i all ways wear a helmet.

That is definitely the truth, I saw a video a few years back of a fellow that flipped a sand car. His hand went up and was caught between the cage that the and the surface, he lost his hand. After seeing that video I put wrist restraints in for the boys, probably should for me too.

We have some new folks move in down the block from me and there is a young man that was in a quad accident.
It turns out Mike is about 23, suffers from brain damage and has trouble even walking. So yes, wear that helmet.

Definitely a good argument for the aftermarket cage and the helmet. Glad everyone was okay.
