Hi everybody! Was just wondering if anybody else out there has had the pleasurable experience of breaking their backs. I compressed my T5 vertebrae on a trip to Grand Junction on labor day. It was actually less painful than when I spazzed out my back muscles while lifting my beast onto it's stand late one night! I'm about five weeks into healing, and it's feelin pretty good, gonna try to ride this weekend for the first time (carefully). Doc says 6-8 weeks then It will be about 100% better, but now that I have a crushed vert(that stays crushed forever), I foresee pain in the future. Well I've always had a bad lower back(thanks high school football), then my mid-back spazzed(gracias 250 lb YZ), now I f@!#ed up my upper back(kudos to the hidden gulch that swallowed me up), successfully completing the back pain hat trick. Man Am I gonna hurt when I'm seventy! Luckily I am one tough G. Good luck with those backs!!
