Part of the Sport of off road M. C. riding is the injuries. I was wondering if I was about normal or not? I had 7 broken bones that I know of. I never broke an arm or leg but had both knees badly injured & operated on. Who holds the record for the most broken bones?

Collar bones seem to be most prevalent.

Left fibula just below the knee. Chipped bone in right knee . Two ribs. Seven or eight toes. Probably left ankle. I was too "broke" to go to the doctor.

I wondered if I was( normal ) or above average . I didnt start riding til I was 30 yrs. old. So you could say I took a CRASH course in off road riding. All my buddys were way better .

Evil Kenevil would be a good start.

It seems strange to me if you brake a bone playing baseball thats normal. But if you brake a bone riding a dirt bike your crazy! I have done both sports. Dirt bikes are way more fun. In fact more fun than any other crazy things Ive done
