Exclamation SXS lawsuits...

Has anyone else seen these ads on TV from the usual "ambulance chasers" about filing a lawsuit against a major mfr. of side by sides "if you or a loved one have rolled, been injured, or had died in an accident or rollover in one of these?" Can you believe this CRAP? Why can't people take responsibility for their own actions anymore? Why not do your research and limit your driving style or choice of vehicle to your reflect your own abilities? It just don't make any sense... It's like someone sueing a duct tape manufacturer because the tape made his gerbil get stuck up in his anal cavity....

I flipped my rhino about 2 yrs. ago

I could be yamaha's star witness in these lawsuits.



This is my shin after 2 surgeries. Why i flipped it over? Acting like a retard on it. Most people probably leave that out after they have an accident.

Because this is America where we have the right to be idiots and sue others for our own stupidity. That commercial pisses me off too whenever I see it... luckily I haven't seen if for at least a month now.

Gnarly scar there 884runner!
