when we were kids that age we always rode by ourselves. We rode 340's and 440's, things happen. Family is in my prayers.

I rode a '73 Colt 340 starting in Kindergarten, roughly 1991. I remember my dad put a piece of wood behind the throttle held on with electrical tape so it would only go 15-20 mph. I came back to the farm yard one day so proud that I got it all the way up to 35 mph, as the wood block had slid toward the end of the handlebar. I remember right before that I saw the tips of the skis in front of me as I hit a snow drift that was about 4 feet tall next to a row of trees and that old sled went what felt like vertical at the time.

Scared the shit out of me to the point where I was pretty careful from then on (for awhile).

Unfortunate end to their story, but things happen.
