ZX14 Raptor at Little Sahara Sandfest

I have some pics and videos from our trip to Oklahoma last week. I will try and post some from my phone. I am stuck in the hospital intensive care unit as my fiance got hurt very badly in a sand rail accident while taking a ride. She had a big surgery so we are still in the icu. So I thought I would kill some time and try to post.
Depending upon the sand conditions the ZX14 raptor ran very well and turned a lot of heads. I never put the wheelie bar and rippers on it while we were there. I was just having fun doing wheelies and beating up on the kids that couldn't figure out what just passed them.

Thanks, she was the one out drag racing with the big yellow can am outlander 1000. It is gonna be a long rehad. She had spinal damage but I won't get into her injuries more than that. She asked a guy with a sand rail for a ride when he said he was going to do a wheelie. He did on the first jump, just brought up the nose and rode a wheelie down the backside of the dune. The second pass wasn't even that much, so apparently on the third pass he was gonna show off and jumped like 70 feet and crashed the back of the sand rail into the sand which made it slap the front down so hard it bottomed out the car and bounced up off the ground again. It destroyed her back amongst other injuries. If I wasn't trying to do patient care on my fiance I would have punched him right in the face for endangering her in such a fashion. Prior to the accident he said he was just gonna do a wheelie down the dune as he stood beside us criticizing the other sand rail owners saying to jump that dune was just too dangerous and then that's exactly what he did.

Sorry I haven't gotten any pics posted yet or any videos. I have had my priorities and my life changed dramatically since the accident. My fiance is recovering and is improving. The doctors say she is a miracle given her injury, she was a miracle to me before she ever got injured. We will have to sell her quad to help pay for the bills and attorney but as long as she continues to improve I don't care. The rehab staff here is some of the best in our state and they are winning my vote and my thanks as she improves daily.
She vows someday she will ride again but i don't know whether she will ever race again. So you guys who got to race beside her out there and see her top fly up at the end of the drag race you might be out of luck of any repeat in the future. Thanks to everyone for you thoughts and prayers. I will eventually post some videos of the races.
