Just got my new 426 in december. I came off a 2000 yz250 with a broke collar bone. I was getting used to the thumper and the front wheel washed out in a turn and I broke my collar bone again in the same place. I love the new 426 but having bad luck. My hole family hates that i ride and it seems to make me have bad luck. I am 29 now and i still love to ride. I know getting hurt is part off it but everyone says grow up. To make things worse the bosses at work is giving me dirty looks. I try not to mention anything about riding at work. Boys I dred trying to cover this up. Sorry to dump all this crap on everyone but I know riders understand my riding sickness see ya
Sorry you broke your collar bone again. If you enjoy riding, then don't let anyone make you stop. Do what makes you happy. I've been out of work for 6 weeks this time due to missing a shift launching over a double and crashing into the face of the jump. Crushed two knuckles, broke two fingers and my wrist, plus was knocked out for 5 minutes and had a concussion.
So what should we do? Sit on the couch? Hide indoors for the rest of our lives so that we can grow old....and then what?
I'll be back riding soon. I'm an older guy...a good ten years older than you.
Tell your family some of us will never 'grow up'.
