Have you ever had some serious injuries that stopped you from riding, and probably other things?
And how did you bear with them?

I injured my wrist on my right hand while riding 6 months ago. I waited for it to heal, but winter started so I couldn't ride. I went snowboarding a few times and injured my other wrist. Snow started to melt, but then I injured my ankle in sports class. Today I went riding for the first time in 6 months, and my right wrist hurt even while just riding on the ground.(6 months after the injury) It sucks because I don't know if it will ever heal completely, or at least enough so that I can ride my bike sad injuries suck, and i have the feeling that they happen constantly, i mean three serious injuries in less than 6 months wtf, and i have the feeling that they happen only to me..

I have broken my left collarbone twice in 14 months. The first time it snapped completely in half and i had a titanium plate put on it. The second time i snapped the titanium plate and cracked my bone. I am currently in recovery for the second time now with a bigger plate screwed on. Recovery time sucks, watch some netflix and get you bike dialed so it will be perfect when you're ready.

Im dealing with the plate and screws, left side as well. Shit happened late Oct. Havent been able to ride since, weather is clearing up, which is nice but this plate shit hurts on the regular. I still have restricted movement as well. I believe I read when you posted on here about the plate breaking ...Thinking about getting one of these while getting back into things, I already know my shoulder isnt going to take the impact to well should I fall. http://evs-sports.com/index.php/moto/support-belts/shoulder-support/sb04-shoulder-brace.html


No idea how you felt after a few months with the plate but for me, its extremely uncomfortable. I just deal with it. My plate is 7-8 inches long with 9 screws.

Separated shoulder (worst the er guy had ever seen) tore all ligaments but one on my collar bone, and (i found out years later) I fractured three vertebrae in that crash.

I cartwheel pretty good in a moto race and when I stopped tumbling I actually thought my shoulder was broke because it went numb. Then I looked at my leg that suddenly had another knee haha. I shuffled my leg and my body straight and the pain didn't set in for a minute or so. They cut all my clothes off and gave me morphine as I laid on the track which made me forget most of what happened.

The worst one for me was the ribs/sternum/internal bleeding thing. I knocked myself out cold for about 30 seconds. And when I came to I had no idea where I was, the EMT kept asking me questions about what day it was and I couldn't hold it together. When they laid me on my back to get on the stretcher it hurt to bad to breath so I blacked out a bunch, they would still not let me sit up haha. I was sedated and woke up in ICU with a chest tube to drain all the blood out of me. The guy in the next room kept coding so there alarms going off every hour because they had to keep bringing him back haha.

I had so much blood in my torso that my abdomen /hip area was solid black for a week.

The worst injury Ive ever had was flying forward on my bike landing a puny dirt jump with loose dirt with low psi in my front tyre. My knee hit the handlebars and my leg bent the wrong way. I hit my head and my ankle hurt for a couple weeks but it wasn't too serious.

Moto is pretty gnarly , my friend died a couple years ago he was riding my other buddy's freestyle course that was recently moved around and hit the back of a freestyle ramp going 110km an hour going over this hill he didn't see the ramp , 450 4 strokes are scary machines , buddies want me to get a dirt bike and start hitting the jumps but I don't know about that I want to but it's been over ten years since riding dirt bikes and I feel to old to go get destroyed on a dirt bike , on another note morphine is amazing it saved my life when i almost broke my neck and gave myself a brain hemorrhage , that along with allot of other drugs , medical science has came a long way

Testimony and apologies





I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

My plate never bothered me till it broke. It was a six screw plate and my doctor put it on the front of my bone instead of the top so it would bother me less. I have an 8 screw plate now.

My left collarbone is plated and I don't even know it is there. You should talk to your orthopedic surgeon if it is that bad. I rode after 6 weeks and was fully recovered by 8.

broke both arms riding DH, went over the bars on a 30 ft stepdown with no helmet. 4 plates, 16 screws, and 58 staples in the arms, and 13 stitches in my face. it took almost a year to get back on the bike. 5 years later, i still have killer arthritis and chronic pain, and my face isn't as pretty as it used to be but i can still ride. I have to smoke a lot of weed to numb the pain and i stay away from DH bikes now. i'll ride BMX until the pain is unbearable, then i'll shave my legs, dress in stretchy clothes, take EPO, and join the pro peloton.
