6/23/04. Ran off the road by a cager. 2003 FZ1 totalled. Broken clavicle. My first and only broken broken bone in 36 years of living.

edit: I broke it in 2 places. Does that add bonus points? :D

A few fingers and toes, mostly from flying sh!^. Fell and broke my leg once. Fell once and had the bike roll over on me and the handlebar poked me in the gut so hard it ruptured my colon and they had to open me up...but mostly been fortunate and have become a believer in the proper equipment.

2/1/94 crashed a brand new 93 ZR1100 on a pre-delivery test ride (improperly prepped by someone else). 7-1/2 hours of reconstructive surgery left me with 2 plates, 13 screws, a lag bolt, and some safety wire holding my left arm together just above the elbow. The lag bolt was removed about a year later and I am having surgery 12/6/04 to remove scar tissue and relocate my ulnar nerve.

I highly recommend not crashing :D

Well, they always say it's the landing that hurts... It was a very, very nasty slapper that pitched me before it stabilized. The docs bolted it back on. After about a year I was able to get full strength and range of motion and ride again.

Hmm, it's been a while but I broke both lower legs, one was a compound and broke through the skin, shattered my right wrist and fractured my pelvis like a wishbone. This all happened when my '88 hurricane smacked into a delta 88. My helmet was a mess but surely saved me from major head trauma and quite possibly death.

LOL OMG... I am so sorry but I was rolling reading this!!! :lol: I never broke anything riding but when I was 7 I stepped down off a porch and sprained my ankle. Was on crutches for a few weeks. I was an accident prone child! I'm actually quite surprised I haven't broken anything yet.
