Who has the most battle wounds , plates , screws ,scars, broke bones ,and so on?
2 broken wrists, 1 with screw. a few broken fingers and 3 ribs. a hole in a lung, an easily adjusted (dislocate, re locate) shoulder. and a pair of well beaten knees, or should I say, a strong pair of asterisks!
How about yourself?
I've been lucky just a broken wrist. but a lot of sore ribs , ankles , knees ,and so on. oh yea I've been riding 32 years got my first bike when I was 7 yrs old. a honda QA50 and I still have it.

Only one piece of Titanium in me, got a nice 2 1/2 screw in my right knee. Didn't break it motoing though, skateboarding accident. Of course there are no "skateboarding accidents", more like "skateboarding happenings", LOL. Also have the "movable" shoulders, their sweet. Nothing like having your shoulders pop out when you hit the ground, then pop back in after the first or second bounce .
2 broken scaphoids in both wrists - neither healed right and both arthritic,
ACL's damaged -both knees,
cartilage shot and not repairable - both knees,
extreme arthritus left knee and right getting worse.
smashed right shoulder - arthritic
Front teeth shattered from a KICKSTARTER (don't ask!! )
herniated disk in lower spine
scarring from circumcision...oops wrong forum !!
Broken fingers (3 on left hand) - hospitable bed tumble age 4!
Broken fingers, 2 left, 1 right, + right scaffoid. XL 600 spill : both arms in cast, try taking a s h i t like that!
Broken scaffoid left - Mountain bike
Broken Scaffoid right & front teeth (ate a rock) Mountain Bike spill.
Broken Radius right arm - split the end of the bone open length-ways. The only titanium in me comes from this....a little washer that didnt come out when the unscrewed the pin. Oh yeah...mountain bike...
Removable shoulder - skiing pirouette (unintentional)
Broken tibia - skiing
Exploded ACL's right knee & Meniscus (cartilidge) right knee, repaired then removed 6 years later
Field hockey & Skiing
Broken Thumbs - both a number of times - Skiing
Cartilidge extraction, left knee - skiing
Broken left ankle - Motorbike
Broken vertebrae (3x in one sitting), multiple ribs - '69 Porsche 911T into a tree. In my possession for exactly 11 days. Renting a Ferrari Testarossa for those 11 days would have been cheaper as I had to pay 400 bucks a month for 3 years to repay the loan.
I think thats about it.
I'm sure there's more to come as I just started this WR thing last August !!

I obviously dont ride hard enough because I dont have any serious battle wounds but I would like to throw my cousin in on this action.
Please look away if your queasy....
He pulled this one off doing 4th down a trail and around the corner was a huge tree laying crossways in the trail. No need to say what happened next.
Part of the skin graft came from his butt. Cool!
Still want to go riding this weekend!
Blo*dy Hell.....I'm on the wrong forum here! it's like an episode of Emergency!
I obviously ride like a wuss , cos all I ever do is bruise myself, mind you I did try, took out 5yds of dry stone wall with my head, split my helmet open, and walked away, no injuries....somebody likes me I think! LOL
Missle...M8, I think you need to go to a quiet corner, and have a LONG talk with yourself ,ROFL
you read like a medical book! You're not known as Steve Austin are you?

Did 3 weeks of who am I who are you? concusion,(I love Shoei helmets!) both broken ankles(same time) 3 concusions not including the 1st mentioned. Broke off branch with my left eye, exploded right hamstring,
3-crushed disc resulting in 2 surgeries in neck, still got the scars of road rash, still have scar across lower back from when an old Maico 450 used me for traction(jerk!) I was 14yrs old. Kinda cool knobby print though! and numerous cuts, sprains and bruises. Who know's what the future will bring...Hey wait a minute! how do we know you don't work for a medical insurance company!!... All that stuff I mentioned... Was really my buddy I have allway's been a medical marvel of health
I just have to ask. There has to be a great story here somewhere!!
I broke my femur in half. 1 titanium rod the length of the femur with 1 screw at the hip and 2 above the knee.
I should have stuck to dirt bikes because so far no serious injuries...knock, knock. I broke it trying something new...wake boarding...no I did not hit a pier. I found out water is harder than dirt sometimes.
Advice...stay on land...preferably on 2 wheels...unless of course you are skitching puddles.
Dislocated shoulder, two fractured ribs, fractured lt humerus, fractured lt femur, a couple concusions, and an avulsed extensor pollisis brevis tendon (Gamekeeper's thumb) as well as a variety of scars over both legs and back..... all various accidents from mountain biking!
