A short clip of a crash which should have left me paralyzed.. I'm not joking either. I should be in a wheel chair right now, it just so happened that I landed on branches covering a rut instead of dirt. Was a little too hot on the throttle and missed the slight turn to stay on the trail, went over the bars at best I can figure 35-40mph landing head first onto the ground. Saw a flash on contact and stars for a good 15 seconds which was a first for me.

2013 ITMA State Ride Crash
Julies creek trail, Deadwood Reservoir Idaho. This was my first time back on the Orange hot rod after having to tear into the engine. Boy have I sure missed the power. Got a little hot on the throttle and slide off the trail. My second year in a row, on this ride crashing and then losing my clutch. Finished out the ride without a clutch logging a total of 78 miles for the day, 55-60 of it were without a clutch. We ended up coming across a small fire when we came back in on this trail not too far from the crash.
