Angry I hit a Quad!!!

     

I was riding in Holister Hills and was on the main road about 25ft behind a teenager on a quad. We were cruising about 15-20mph him on the outside of the lane and me on the inside. The road splits and then reconnects and each way is one way. We are cruising along and coming up on the road coming back together when he decides he is gonna make a u-turn : and go on the other road going back the way we came. He turned right in front of me and I swerved and grabbed the front brake but still slid into him. I layed there for a few minutes dazed and confused but otherwise O.K. He was perfectly fine.

I will post the carnage later mainly fender and headlight are gone and my enduro computer is a crumbly mess.:

Sorry to hear that Blue. That really irritates me to no end when someone just decides to make a u-turn right in fron of people. I hope this kid got an ear full! Did he offer to replace the broken parts?

I think Heckler gave him an ear full. i was to dazed to do much yelling. I do remember him asking Heckler for a ride back to his camp while i was still on the ground:

Gees man! I'm just glad you are OK bro! How dare him ask that Heckler get his bike dirty to haul his dumb butt back to camp! I would have taken him deeper in the woods and dumped him! OK, not really but that would have ticked me off!

Man, sorry to hear about that blue.

I did something very similar once on my KE100. I was racing a banshee and he was out in front, I was still accelerating, and he turned, WHAM slammed into him.

Glad you are ok man. Hope the bike didn't suffer that bad.

Ouch, I had something similar happin about 10 years ago.

We were doing trail maint, and had just finished, there was a kid on top of the trail riding a little yamaha 2 stroke around the trail backwards, we didnt know he was there.


I was the first one around to test out the improvements, the jump was a good 20' long, the kid jumped off the bike, but I took out the cooling fins with my knee, had to get it drained a couple times, man that hurts.

Also punched a 3" hole in my front tire, and bent the rear rim, I flew a good 15' in the air before I landed.

what?! a KE100 vs banshee?! what, was he pulling a truck? LOL

i'm happy to announce i havent *crashed* when meeting someone going the wrong way or someone turning in front of me, but there has been several times where it was an issue.

glad you're ok Blue, at least its mainly cosmetics. it sucks about your computer though... :

Hey, I never said it was a close race.

How do you think he got far enough in front of me to turn in the first place?

Glad the damage isn't too serious blue. You're nicer than me, I would have jumped up and beat the tar out of the kid : Make sure your bike knows it wasn't your fault, or it may never forgive you
