Just watched this safety video from Louie at Powermodz, where he talked about a safety vest saving his ribs more than a few times. He also wears neck brace for the days he's getting a bit more wild.
Louie mentions the sobering recent news about a snowmobiler that passed away after hitting an unexpected drift on a rail trail in Minnesota. But among the comments on YouTube was the gentlemen who was there with his buddy as he died who chimed in to clarify the story. According to Steve, the coroner said his life could have been saved if he were wearing a vest, as the impact was strong enough to rupture an artery.
Rest in peace Steve. Snowmobiling is fun but it is dangerous! But it can be less dangerous. Thank you to those in our community who advocate improving all of our safety.
But take special note of the first comment from Tom:
