well had a rough day at tyco today, after a little bit of tank slap'n i took a swan dive onto the asphalt. i think the culprit was the yellow painted lines in the road, a friend that got my bike after i took off in the ambulance says that there was a skid directly off the line then where the front started slap'n. cough'n blood is a little unnerving, and this break is really uncomfortable... im completely over racing it on the streets, the tracks gonna be my new home. oh well thought i'd join the club and post up, good times, i've had better but thats life.:shrug :cheers

Only one pitt-bull damper place left-$365 is a small price to avoid a ruined $8,000 bike and hospital bills. sliders ,cages ect-design the bike for the way you ride might save you butt someday or make you so brave that you still over drive the eq and have a really bad crash:2cents

well i just went to the specialist today, he says that as of now it should heal up just fine wearing a sling. im kinda worried this thing is gonna be wicked deformed. any one on here break their clavicle? im wondering if you can ever be 100% again. i really like things like boxing and im thinking this injury has seriously fucked me. :/

there's guys on thumpertalk (dirt forum) that say they go back into riding 5 weeks after breaking their clavicle. i don't think you'd be in full health that fast. i had a level 3 shoulder separation (much more serious than a clavicle) and it was a solid 2 mo. of recovery and i was back lifting full weight and all. with the clavicle (just broke that too) they say it's not as necessary either. I do notice my left shoulder kinda sags an inch down and back, i don't like that, cause it shifts where your bones/muscles were used to, and plus looks kinda funny. i'm still searching for opinions as well.

Well Its been about 2 weeks, and i was starting to feel like i had at least half my range of motion back until yesterday. I have no clue what the hell i did but it feels like i got something wrong in my shoulder now. I went from being able to move it all around back to square one. the bone feels real solid and fused but all the soft tissue is doing its own thing, i almost think i pinched something thats causing the shoulder pain... im dying to get some physical activity. im thinking its gonna be a really long time before i can military/bench press again:thumbdown....GOd im dying to ride:banghead

damn man i'm not trying to rub it in, but it'll be 2 weeks this coming sunday and i've already been riding for like 3 days, wheelies hurt a little initially when i bring it up but once i'm up i'm fine. guess i just got lucky with how it broke. it'll be a while till i get back on the 450 though, at least another month, i hit a bump while i was on my RR and i felt a little pain. i can imagine what a 30 foot double would feel like.
