Well I have only been riding for about a year now so my lst is short and sweet.

Broken radial in right arm.
Concussion ( happen at the same time as the arm)

Worst part of the whole incident was I had been laid off a month prior. Resulting in lots of time for riding but no medical insurance. :)

Zero physical injury worth talking about.
But my mind wanders.
I miss my grandma.
My dogs name is Coco.
I like the smell of race gas.
The nice young men in there clean white coats
took me on a vacation for a while.
Sometimes I think------------- and then I wonder?

Trans Scaphoid Sub Lunate Fracture/Dislocation Rt. Wrist. It's been six months, hardware's out and it still hurts like hell. Haven't ridden yet but it's gettin there. I think maybe I'll turn it down a notch. Don't wanna seem like a puss but, sick leave is hard to come by these days.

Well lets see, for me this is never ending. My latest is a severly sprained ankle. The best part is that it's the same ankle I just had surgery on 7 weeks ago for 3 torn ligaments, bone spurs and to reshape my ankle after I broke it. You know how long 7weeks is to be off your bike? So I rode and now I'm paying for it. C-YA on the track next week! :)

I don't get it! I have the impression that some of you young guys out there think that "battle scars" is macho or something. Just wait til you get older...you will feel all of them.....

I am older I am 45, I feel it every day, it hurts and on cold moist days it hurts worse.

Ya they are battle scars, there also trophies, there good for bench racing and yes it is macho

Ok who has the biggest huevos

Rt. Knee
12.03.01
ACl, MCL, LCL and Meniscus, Patella tendon damaged.
Reconstructive surgery 12.23.01
Took Patella tendon from LEFT knee to repair right.
Was jogging 3.18.02
Riding 5.15.02

Still swells and is painful. Could have been avoided with braces. Would rather have broken any bone in my body. Hurt like a SOB. Hurt worse 6hs after surgery when the doc made me walk on crutches (remider, both had been cut on). If it had to happen O wish I had been doing something cool when it happened rather than pulling into the pit area.

I think I'm gonna throw up now.

I have had no significant injuries in 3 seasons of Jet Ski racing, 3 seasons of MX racing and 3 seasons of road racing.

I did break my ankle in a pickup basketball game at the Y. Now there is a dangerous sport :)
