Severe separated right shoulder and severe stretched hamstring doing a 1-1/2 off a single jump (hit a hole in the face) thought I was going to land on the wheels so I stayed on the bike, the bike landed on me instead. Separated left shoulder twice. Knocked out once just lost memory. Been riding for 40 years and broke first bone last year (collar bone). :D I've quite several times, went fishing for 6 years, and talked about riding the whole time, so I'm back riding. Quitting cigarettes is easier then quitting riding! :) Decided I can ride better now then latter. :D

Shattered left collerbone, dislocated right collerbone, severed toe on left foot, broken right wrist, broken right radius, separated bones left hand, broke two bones in right hand, tore two discs in back, tore all intercostal muscles and broken rib on right+ bruised lung, right knee scoped (needs it again), broken tail bone(OUCH!!),severe cuncussion, countless sprains,30+ years riding. To all of those moms out there who would like to use this post as a reason NOT to let your child (including the one you are married to) buy a motorcycle, about 20% of these injuries happened on motorcycles. The rest were bicycle/skateboard. An adrenaline junkie will get hurt no matter what you do mom. The best thing you can do is buy him/her a good helmet. :) By the way, one collerbone among the bike injuries. :D

Left collar bone in 3 places racing moto.
Track medic kept poking it and saying "Look fellas, a broken collar bone."
Would have punched him if I could lift my hand.
Felt pretty good when the pain stopped. :)

Broke my right collar bone.Now my right shoulder is 1 1/2 shorter than the other.They just let the bone grow beside each other and it looks weird,Thsi happened last September as I was trying to cross a 7 foot wide ditch in 4th.

Still hurts a little if I put my head down to go so sleep in class and I can reach behind with my left arm and touch my hair (been growin it out for a 1 1/2 year) but with my right arm I can barely get it passed my mid back.

Couple of big scars from jumping bicyles.
