Default Safety PSA

I have a good friend who lives out of state. He was wheeling with his daughter, coming down a hill and caught a tire. Did a double cartwheel endo.

Because of a full cage and wearing 5 points, the only injury is a few bangs on his daughter and he has a broken collar bone.

He thinks his rig is totaled.

If you think you don't need a cage or harness's, please think again.

It's amazing what you can walk away from when you have the proper equipment.

Funny you say that. I rarely use my shoulder belts because I want to stick my head out the window to see.

I've only had the lab belt portion in for one run and I like it, it forces me to wear them. Prior to putting them in I would never wear a seat belt. *Read I'm stupid

The harness style I put in now is uncomfortable not to wear so I actually wear something now.

My bad, it was an assumption. You gotta remember you're talking to an idiot who thinks the people of Oakland county will look at a golf course differently than an offroad park.

I thought a pic would be a good visual reference. A pic of a totaled sxs and the trama caused motivated me to spend a lot of money and time to make mine safer.

Sorry
