Lessons learned

A friend of mine had a mishap the other day with his wife on the back - they were riding a Yamaha Kodiak. The cause of the mishap was related to a combination of events:


1. 2 people on a 1 person machine.
2. Wrap around rear storage bag that was "over-loaded" with tools, snacks, & water.
3. Attempting to exit a ravine on too steep of an angle that had a unseen rock at the top edge causing the machine to flip over. Wrap around storage bag impeded passenger's dismount resulting in machine rolling over both driver and passenger. Passenger sustained broken arm, driver sustained a lot of aches & pains but nothing broke. Kodiak landed upside down pinned against a tree resulting in bent handle bar and some stressed plastic. Winched Kodiak back upright and it fired right up (it's a Yamaha after all).


Moral of the story: Weights & Measures! Driver very skilled but failed (senior moment) to take into account the excessive weight on the back of his machine.


WHY IS THIS POST IN A RHINO FORUM? His wife says never again so he's in the market for a good used Rhino. I spent a few minutes last night looking for same - had no idea just how rare they are to find. Seems like every state in the union has at least one for sale and their not all very pretty but they all command a high price. He's not in the market for snorkeled units (lets Florida out) or heavy suspension modifications, just a simple basic 660 or 700 that has not been terribly abused. Have trailer - will travel if deal is acceptable. Thanks.
