Dezperado Crash

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzRqC8kVqNk

This is still tough to see what happened. It's just too far away.

You can see the bike go over, and you can see a kick of sand from the throttle being stuck open as part of the crash. I think the Tire is was spun the bike to the opposite direction. It looks to me like bike and rider tumble a couple of times, and that the bike lands on Dez on the first roll. I watched it slow mo, and frame by frame.

Slow Mo at the end.

Thanks Adam. What I remember, I knew exactly where I was, but was very close to the closed boundary. So I went west torwards the tree line (from the Red Buggy Area) and wet sand. Just before the wet sand I turned right, North. After the turn is where and when it happened. From the video it looks like I was going straight and that's the last I remember. Then it rolls at least twice, and the bike and I come to a stop. The right front tire is flat now and may have been a cause, because of a tree stump or wet sand that may have flipped me.

I found tracks in the area coming over a roller. with tracks turning right and straight ahead was the first landing spot of the crash.

I'm still going with a right turn, didn't see the whoop, and that whoop tipped it over.

I think the tire went flat in the crash, as it was rolling over.

The GoPro always looks like crap when you zoom it in really at all. It was too blurry for me to really be able to tell even frame by frame and watching it.

Yeah, a right turn and all hell broke loose. A wheel apparently sliced off the quick mount and goggles from my helmet. Brand new helmet from my last wreck. That allowed sand in my face. Tire tracks all over my body, right, front wheel has a good size dent and tire is flat. Proteper bars were rotated in the clamps, but appear straight. ODI and ASV are good. Thumb throttle shaft is bent and sticks, holding open unless manually released. The plastic was in the process of being sand cut but shows some repairable damage. It will be a while before I get some air in the tire, and check the frame and alignment.

I would say that the quad took the accident better then my body did. And another helmet will be on the way.

I hit a 6x6 at 60mph... never seen it coming. it was a few feet to the side of the path, i had to really look for it... i just knew it wont a "ditch" there.


Anyway, im glad you seem to be doing good dez... hope you heal quickly.

The right rear tire had a piece of Velcro in it that my buddy Daniel saw. We thought it was weird but didn't put it together till Sunday and Johnny grabbed the helmet and sure as shit a piece for the goggles was missing.

Good example of a helmet saving a life. With the throttle stuck and the tire going that would not have felt good on the side of the head for sure.

The Raptor was ready for a lunch break or something, and was like, GET THE F OFF ME. is that thing union or something... lol
