    Tank Bags on Plastic Tanks

    Have two both made for ATV's. Fieldline Pro Series-Camo- had to modify with x-tra strap at bottom and cut small horizontal hole to pass strap through Rad. plastic collector. Recently bought QuadGear extreme ATV Tank Cargo Bag. Greta fit and finish product-zippers even have rubber seal. This "saddle" bag fits with "bungie" strap along bottom with plastic hook I took around to rad bracket-front attachment point-back took Bungie and wrapped through hole in rad deflector and back to bag-sweet fit-this one i bought in black and looks better than cammo. bought both off E-Bay. site www.classicaccessories.com

    broken collarbone question

    Racing, to add to yesterdays note; pain of unyielding-unrelenting nature radiating away from area of injury may represent nerve contusion or entrapment-best consult your physician.

    broken collarbone question

    Racing, suggestions from Orthopaedic PA with 24 yrs. experience-clavicle fractures generally take 4 weeks to develope healing calcium/"callous" that can be seen on an x-ray, 8-weeks for healing @ 80%. Still not enough bone to take same stress that caused fx in first place-trully 12 wks for full callous formation then 6-12 months for soft tissue recovery. Pain takes 3-4 weeks to reduce 50-75% (once callous formation starts). Clavicle acts like a "strut" on an airplane wing and is always stressed-sit-stand-rotate trunk-breathe. Also remember the higher the velosity of injury the longer the healing process. Tardy and nonunions are possible! No-one likes to do surgery on clavicle fx's due to the arteries-veins-nerves that clavicle protects-and hardware can break. You need to invest another 4-6 weeks to asses your outcome-good luck.
