So Thursday I was riding. I was hauling ass down a hill and I try to hop UP some stairs. Long story short, I have a broken Collar bone. The Doc said I got about 6 weeks. I want to ride ASAP. I was figuring with a little badassness, I could pull a Mat Hoffman and be back on the saddle in 3.
Anyone else ever done this? Ideas?

It has been healing rather quickly though. No swelling, just soreness

Yeah it would be badass to do it but don't. I had a back problem for 2 months I think I pulled something, and I would think it felt better and do a bunny hop and would hurt like a fucking bitch, finally I had to wait like 2 weeks before I was fully healed and could ride.

I did that with a tore ligament in my ankle. I tore it again even worse and couldn't ride for 6 months, I fucked it up bad.

I hate the thought of breaking that particular bone, guessing that must hurt pretty bad.

Not sure you should fuck around with your recovery tho, give it at least 4 weeks and take it easy for a bit.

Happy healing bro.

Don't do it.

If you ignore it and ride anyway, you could cause more damage, be out longer.

Just listen to the doctor.

I ignored mine on my shoulder years ago, been plagued with issues since, cracking, soreness, even easier dislocation. DON'T INGORE THEM.
