Rhino rollovers and doors

I've started seeing more sites like this and this. While I'm firmly in the camp of people being responsible for their own actions, I do understand that an obvious reaction to a rollover on a quad is sticking your leg out. Not a good idea on these machines obviously, and even if you don't do it yourself, how can you be certain about keeping any passengers safe. So it is a very good thing that Yamaha now offers doors on all new Rhinos and FREE retrofitting for all previous year owners as we reported in the announcement of the Yamaha Rhino 700.

I think Yamaha should be commended for taking these steps to address the issue and creating a lot of helpful information including a Guide to Genuine Yamaha Doors/Handholds and Rhino Occupant Protection and an updated owners manual at this web page.
