Wannabe Blair Morgans that have no idea on how to ride. Was ran into the woods twice last year because of them.
Moose on the trails can be a real eye opener when you come around a corner. ( been there, done that )
Biggest thing i fear is hidden rocks/stumps under fresh snow. Ive hit a concrete block under snow before. Luckily the skidplate took all the damage. Had a buddy hit a buried piece of sheetmetal last winter. Put a huge gash down thru shock tower and running board.
The only time I was really nervous however was when a group of 7 of us were in the middle of the Chequamegon-Nicolet. We knew we had to keep an eye on our gas, but we kept going a little farther hoping to find a town. We got about 80 miles out and couldn't even see a light in the sky that would tell us there was a town near by. There was no traffic on any of the roads we crossed. The map we had was useless because we ended up in Lincoln County not Taylor. Our cell phones.....yeah they were useless too. No reception anywhere. The funny part was that none of us knew the phone number back at the cabin anyway.
We decided to turn around and head back. I was bringing up the rear cause I knew my sled and the other EFI would make it back. I was just waiting to see tail lights go out in front of me. It was a weird feeling.
Once we got back into Taylor County, we ended up taking the roads back home just to save on mileage. Glad to say all the sleds made it back to the cabin. A couple in the group were on fumes, and the smell of burnt slide plastic was strong in the air.
Another rider driving like an idiot, I've had anough close calls with them coming around a corner too fast on my side of the trail or cresting a hill getting air and not being able to stay on their side. Other things like hitting trees is something that I control and is my own fault if I get hurt or wreck my machine.
i am terrified of hitting people on the trail. coming off the top of a hill, coming around a corner, or someone stopped on the side of the trail. also being at the back of the group and the sled dieing, with others in the group not knowing. happend a couple times. at night too.
