I thought I posted this topic a while back, but I guess not as I can't find it. *Anyway, last month, on the fourth of July, we were in front of my building waiting for the big firework show to start up the street. *There were thousands of people back in my building complex, and I was between my building trying to see if I could get the fork lift to reach onto the roof. *It couldn't, so I was gonna put it up, but decided to do a little sideways wheelie action for the crowd. *I found out a while back that if I cut a corner hard enough, I can get this thing over on 2 wheels for a bit, and have successfully completed this maneuver over a hundred times. So I did it successfully a couple times, and should have called it a night, but, instead I decided to go for the finale, and all be dammed if I didn't flip the thing. *I broke a couple 10k straps trying to hoist it up with my truck, then decided to try my cherry picker and a bunch of wood. *This idea worked, I filled it back up with oil, and it has ran fine ever since, just scratched up my new paint job on the right side, but no big deal. *I had about 20 of my friends over, so if I was gonna flip the thing in 100 times of doing it, of course it would be in front of a large group of people. *I managed to escape without *a scratch, i've done it enough to know to keep my legs in, and grab the bars of the side that will be facing up when it's on it's side, and bend my knees up to the seat ans simply wait for the thing to stop moving before I try to get out.

So anyway, just felt like sharin..
