Exclamation be safe i broke my back

i was rideing down a trail going about 60 and felt sum muddy ruts pulling me around so i grab the front brake slowly and start to shift down, well a rut pulled me right while my left foot was off the peg (on small shifter) and front brakes barly engaged and i slid off to the left on the quad cause my foot was off the peg so as i fell i was still on the bars and i turned myself into a tree

i had a helmet but thats it for safety gear
if i were to have had a chest protector i would of walked away,but i broke it from my back snaping forward.
i was rushed to U of M hospital and had 3 broke verta bree (t9 to t11)
so they did surgey and put rods in and i have a 12 inch cut in my back

i have a 3 month recovery but full recovery
sooo any way PLEASE BUY AND WHERE A CHEST PROTECTOR,they may be 150 bucks but its better than a 200k hospital surgery 50k stay for a week and a 3k ambulance ride and a 3 month of no move ment of my back

dont be cheap and get one
