2 broken wrists, 1 with screw. a few broken fingers and 3 ribs. a hole in a lung, an easily adjusted (dislocate, re locate) shoulder. and a pair of well beaten knees, or should I say, a strong pair of asterisks!
nothing major!
How about yourself? :)

Yo Yo;

Only one piece of Titanium in me, got a nice 2 1/2 screw in my right knee. Didn't break it motoing though, skateboarding accident. Of course there are no "skateboarding accidents", more like "skateboarding happenings", LOL. :D Also have the "movable" shoulders, their sweet. Nothing like having your shoulders pop out when you hit the ground, then pop back in after the first or second bounce :) .

Broken fingers (3 on left hand) - hospitable bed tumble age 4!

Broken fingers, 2 left, 1 right, + right scaffoid. XL 600 spill : both arms in cast, try taking a s h i t like that!

Broken scaffoid left - Mountain bike

Broken Scaffoid right & front teeth (ate a rock) Mountain Bike spill.

Broken Radius right arm - split the end of the bone open length-ways. The only titanium in me comes from this....a little washer that didnt come out when the unscrewed the pin. Oh yeah...mountain bike...

Removable shoulder - skiing pirouette (unintentional)

Broken tibia - skiing

Exploded ACL's right knee & Meniscus (cartilidge) right knee, repaired then removed 6 years later
Field hockey & Skiing

Broken Thumbs - both a number of times - Skiing

Cartilidge extraction, left knee - skiing

Broken left ankle - Motorbike

Broken vertebrae (3x in one sitting), multiple ribs - '69 Porsche 911T into a tree. In my possession for exactly 11 days. Renting a Ferrari Testarossa for those 11 days would have been cheaper as I had to pay 400 bucks a month for 3 years to repay the loan.

I think thats about it.

I'm sure there's more to come as I just started this WR thing last August !!

I obviously dont ride hard enough because I dont have any serious battle wounds but I would like to throw my cousin in on this action.

Please look away if your queasy....


He pulled this one off doing 4th down a trail and around the corner was a huge tree laying crossways in the trail. No need to say what happened next.

Part of the skin graft came from his butt. Cool! :)

I broke my femur in half. 1 titanium rod the length of the femur with 1 screw at the hip and 2 above the knee.
I should have stuck to dirt bikes because so far no serious injuries...knock, knock. I broke it trying something new...wake boarding...no I did not hit a pier. I found out water is harder than dirt sometimes.

Advice...stay on land...preferably on 2 wheels...unless of course you are skitching puddles.
