Don't get killed when driving the Rhino ATV.

I’m currently sitting and enjoying my Ice Blended Mocha at this place called Starbuck! Hahahaa I know..I know, I should be at home already, as both my kids are waiting for me. I do want to, but I need to finish few stuffs first before I can go back home. If you have kids, you do understand how your kids can cause you delay the things you are supposed to finish ASAP, right? I also need to finish couple of notes or better to say, study for my final exam which will start next week. What?? Why not just stay in office to do some revision? I probably will stay in office if it wasn’t because of the D.B problem we are having now..! So, NO…I don’t want to stay in office only to the get my head exploded due to power supply tripped all over and over and over again..

Anyway, I’m writing this post today to warn you about the potential danger of riding the Yamaha Rhino ATV. This $11k cost of vehicle is found to be extremely unsafe for the riders as there are many cases of injuries and deaths reported are due to its unsafe conditions. You can read about the sad cases of those who had an accidents while riding the Yamaha Rhino ATV at Yamaha Rhino Rollover. Now, if you see the Rhino ATV as the pictures above, you can see the there are few unsuitable criterias with the built-in of the vehicle. They are :

*The Yamaha Rhino is narrow which is not good as wider vehicles can be more stable

**The Yamaha Rhino is top-heavy and therefore has a high center of gravity

**The Yamaha Rhino has small tires, and small tires give the vehicle less of a platform for stability

Because of the poor built-in, the Rhino ATV got easily rolled over when operated at a low speed especially when it going around a corner or hitting a bump or stone on uneven terrain. (It can roll over when operated on a flat terrain too) Although there are many injuries cases reported due to the impractical design of this vehicle, Yamaha refused to admit that the vehicle defective design contribute the accidents factor to the riders. Instead, the Rhino drivers and passengers were blamed which they are said to be driving in a dangerous and aggressive manners and causing the accidents themselves. In my opinion, Yamaha shouldn't sell the Rhino ATV to people if it doesn’t measures the safety standard to protect the drivers and passengers while operating the vehicle. How could they sell this vehicle if it could cause somebody injury or even death while driving it?

So, if you have this Yamaha Rhino ATV at home, I suggest that you return it back and demand for your money to be refunded. You better be safe, than letting something bad to happen first only to regret and start filing a lawsuit over Yamaha. But if (*touchwood*) you already have an injury while riding this ATV, it's time for you to a take legal action toward Yamaha. Think about it please….
