First of all thanks for all the replies on the tire issue. I was out ridding with a few buddies of mine last Saturday. We go to a place that is mostly sand hills and alot of trails. I happened to come across a trail up a hill that looked like it had not been traveled in a while. Well I soon found out why. This thing looked like it shouldn't have been a problem. Kinda steep....about 35' high....sand trail...with surrounding trees. I locked her into FWD and off I went. Made it most of the way to the top....then all of a sudden she reared up and started to turn over backwards..... as she was starting to flip I pushed her to my right. Next thing I know is that I am standing on my feet watching her fall through a small tree on my right.....then she rolled 4 times before she came to a rest....on her side at the bottom of the hill. She was still running so I shut her off. One of my buddies helped me put her back on her tires.I think that must have been my free pass,becouse I for one never got hurt,and the only thing that happened to the Grizz was a bent handle bar. I gained alot of respect for her that day. After I fixed the handle bar I rode for another couple of hours. Oh yea....if your wondering why she flipped...there was a tree root at the top of the hill which you could not see. Once she hit that it was all over. I will probably give it a little more thought next time before I try to attempt something like that. Thanks for listening guys and please be carefull.
