    Good to share this with loved ones and friends.

    I’ve always been a no tuck guy, and yet still catch myself inserting thumbs and have to tell myself that’s how you get hurt bad. So I untuck almost immediately.

    One good lesson will un-train that habit. That is kind of a natural thing to do when you go from a ATV handlebar to a UTV steering wheel. The manual steer Rhino teaches a brutal lesson, but the EPS in my Wolverine is a steering dream comparatively speaking.

    Great info! I work for a school bus contractor. Our local fair has a school bus demo derby. I participated for many years, and have seen more than my share of other drivers with broken thumbs and wrists due to collisions to the front wheels especially when turned the opposite direction. I try to remember but I know I donít follow that every time. Thanks for sharing!

    Fell into that bad habit on my Rhino years ago, was in Dif Lock mode and had it swing back to center and broke my thumb. Never do that again!!!

    Those hurt like hell too! Our farm tractors had those, I've had some wrist twisters and arm slappers over the years.

    My dad taught me this as a kid learning to drive tractors. Some of our old Farmalls didn't have power steering & if a wheel caught a rut it was goodbye thumb.

    I have this bad habit also. Fortunately nothing broken so far. I’ll keep my thumbs free of the steering wheel from now on.
    Thanks for posting!
