I ride in the hills near Vega, AB. Canada, for those of you who dont know. Great sand hills and tree shooting, but it can get really busy there. on the May long weekend we have over 4300 people around.

this year, one motorbike comes jumping out of the trees, and t-bones another bike. the bike literally broke in half. Now one rider is dead and the other is paralyzed from the neck down for life.

just something to thinnk about.:eek:

That kinda stuff happens in Glamis at least once a month and maybe 2-3 times in one busy holidasy weekend. That's one reason why on holiday weekends I follow some of my friends while they go in there Jeeps. If a Bike Quad or Rail comes over a dune without us knowing, the Jeep stands way more of a chance than we do on our quads...
