    Maybe these Yamahas aren't to bad.

    Was doing a bit of reading after I heard of a couple Polaris Razor fires, one in north Idaho and one in south Idaho recently.

    Sounds like there may have been serious burns when a passenger of in the north Idaho fire couldn't get the shoulder harness released to get out.

    It would make you sicker to watch two women burn up in it like the ranger in Moab did a few years back, just because it tipped over and slid a short distance on its side down hill! Talk about a tragedy!!!
    Happend so fast they couldn’t even get their seat belts undone!
