I am guessing a broken collarbone has to be the most "popular" dirtbiking injury... so I just wanted to post a little poll to see how true it is. Amazing it only takes something like 12 lbs of pressure to break your collarbone. Red and I are both members of the "club" of course. :debil:

I've only broken 2 bones in 39 years...

Both times it was a collarbone.

Both times it was the same side.

Both times riding dirt bikes.

20 years apart....

High up on my list of "Never want to do that again!"

Oh, right! Like I'm gonna say "No". I might as well throw myself collarbone first down a flight of stairs. :p :laugh:

I streched out my ring finger past my middle finger with a door when I was younger. As far as riding goes, I'm great at crashing but so far I haven't broken any bones.

Most of my broken bones came from an assortment of bicycle racing crashes.

One Collar bone, five ribs, four fingers, right hand broken twice, one concussion, one cervical compression and about 4 square feet of scar tissue. :eek:
Last time I checked there was still bits of my blood and skin clinging to the surface of the Northbrook Velodrome. :scream:

I had to start riding dirtbikes again just to stay healthy :)

1-rib about 2 years before that in a tubing crash at the lake.

Alright! I voted. But I swear, if I break my collarbone this weekend, the monkey will be calling you at the most inopportune times you can imagine...

Yep! Doesn't take much of a crash, either.

Not while riding- arm 2X, collar bone.

While riding-each leg, collar bone, ribs.
My bones are obviously faulty.

Myself, the kid and Dilbert all are on the dirtbike related list.
Collarbone was one of the last bones I had not already broken so I guess it was time due in July:(
The kid has broken 3 arms snowboarding and collarbone MXing. He has also broken fingers riding
Dilbert broke his collarbone and 2 ribs at DW03
