I'd agree, looks like the post was sharpened and placed at an angle to bend up when you hit it. Unless there is a good excuse for why someone would have a sharpened steel post on their property, I hope they lock the guy up and he gets sued. What's next, land mines? I do feel bad for landowners who have to deal with trespassers, but why not try a few signs and maybe a gate? If someone started with signs, and then 'progressed' to booby traps, I suppose I would feel a little sorry for the landowner (after he/she got thrown in jail), but lots of times where you see traps like this there are no signs, fences or anything, and in those cases I would say throw away the key...

Holy "edit for bad language", was that right on the edge of the trail? Where did this happen, I have rode a few times up there.

Any chance that end is the one that is supposed to go in the ground and it just got turned that way? I'd like to think people aren't that stupid, but I guess I know better too. Just trying to come up with a non-violent reason for the stick.

I thought about that too after I posted. I guess there's some chance that it's just a fence post that got ripped out and was laying on the ground or something, but that picture sure makes me think otherwise. If it was just 'bad luck' then that cat owner should sell his sled and take up bingo... I can't really see from the pics, were there any other fence parts (standing or fallen) around the area?

Wow, Glad to see I am not the only on this has happend to. Same thing happend to my 99 670 Ho. My buddy was riding it, and after jumping a field drive it just stopped moving. Turned out to be a fence post stuck trough the track compleatly, but didnt touch the heat exchanger. Wrecked the front shock, track, hifax, and burnt a flat spot in the belt.
