    Never broke a bone but I'm not taking any chances. I'm buying as much gear as is made. I swear, I'm gonna look like Iron Man when I'm on my bike! It's been 25 years so I'm not taking any chances. :nod:

    yes I broke my left collar bone as the result of a 100kph lawn dart of a drz400. the pitty was I had the holeshot on the locals class but was lucky enough not to get run over. The only time I needed someone else to drive me home.

    I broke my collarbone while riding. It was the first bone that i have broke. I was riding with my friends and I went off the trail and ran right into this big old rock, it throw me over the handal bars and I landed right on my shoulder. I thought i was alright till i felt my bone sticking out. It was not fun. :bang:
