    Actually the "tree drop" test is used by all manufactures. They have been doing this since 1994.

    Obviously another foot over and she was finished...what saved it from more damage and home severity was the brunt of the impact was a utility trailer and a few saw horses I had made...notice the force of the hit lifted her right up!....luckily the tree didn't hit flush and hit that raised passenger foot rest...

    Hi Dave, sorry about Sandy. It is good to hear that you & yours are safe & sound.....you now have a reason to bring your new beast into the garage ... & get that Luvin feeling again. Send pics & info on the repairs.

    Again glad "Sandy" spared your new ride.

    yeah hit the car instead......the only way to have safely get the tree off the ski without creating anymore damage was to take out the air in the trailer tires,since most of the tree was supported by saw horses that I always had there...lucky

    Glad to hear that your damage was relatively minor. So many are totally wiped out, it's sad.
