I only have one picture of proof that I was Y&S (Young and Stupid). Here it is. Now remember that sleds didn't have suspension back then.

Discovered the same when i had my 76 5000 cat, and later 440 exciter...tried jumping snow banks over driveway openings in the late 70's....never did tell a neighbor when i landed off target, and took out his custom build mailbox. Boy i'll bet he's still pissed about that one.

Only real bad "crash" that I've ever been in was hitting a 5' tall mound of clay, while blasting through a friend's field wide open, in bad visibility. Hit it square on with my 2001 XC SP. Bud of mine and his dad that were riding with me saw me do it. Said my feet were easily 10-15' in the air and I was doing a completely vertical superman with the sled. The distance from where the sled hit the pile of clay, and where I landed was about 100'. remember having the feeling of weightlessness, staring straight at the Polaris star emblem in my handlebar pad before pushing the sled away from me. Landed on my left knee. Sled landed on it's track and skis. Only had a crack in the bellypan. I hobbled to the sled and rode it to the truck. Got a ride to the er and only had really badly bruised kneecap and leg bones. Spent two weeks on crutches.
