Many injuries are caused by poor interior design. I TRY to always think about the consequences of design.Some things cannot be avoided but .................

Knees been a known issue for RZRs for a while.  I would venture after enough law suits they will rethink that design.

True but why should it need lawsuits to design better in the first place? Ya, I know,it's marketing and looking cool is better than safer in that world. Gotta sell enough of them to cover the settlements.

My worst fear.
If I am not haulin ass around one, I am always crossing through someone elses blind turn or fast straight line. It is always a little unnerving to run fast on any trails.

OUCH!!!!! is right

Don't know much about the common sense but a good jumping off point is to quit arguing with yourself.

My wife wanted to drive the car last trip out, til she realized that idiots are coming in any and all directions at same time.  I told her I was only idiot, she had nothing to worry about!! ;D
They is deffinatly a certain amount of blind faith.  Mixed with some common sense.  Best time for the trails for me is night, granted easy to get turned around but the lights are easy to spot.
