Don't think the truth has been collected, just saw something very very high level, but can't remember the source, said more kids are put in hospital for sports injuries than any other reason.

The most dangerous things I have ever tossed a leg over were in order of dangerousness:

1. A Honda 250cc 3 wheel ATV while intoxicated.

2. An underage woman while intoxicated.

3. A unbroken American saddle-bred horse, while intoxicated.

(dont judge me to harshly, I know some of you do sheep while sober, you freaking perverts)

You, or her? Or both? VIEW IMAGE


People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's easier to harass rich old ladies than bikers.

My buddy wrecked on John's Peak a few months ago. Following a 4-wheeler, got dusted out and ran off the road, 10 ft drop into a boulder. He blew out his femer in his right leg and broke 3 toes in his left foot. He lost about 4 inches of bone, and the hospital was nice enough to call me about it. I drove to the site and found peices of bones and brought it to the hospital before work.
It puzzled together good, but was infected. So they removed bone from his hip to cover for it. Overall it was pretty sick. I heard him yell and thought he just tipped the bike and couldn't get it up because he's stupid like that. Once I got up there, the bike was totalled the there was blood everywhere and his whole leg was blown open and all puddy flesh.

Here is a good picture of a recent injury.  Its Brian Deegan from the Winter X games.  Fractured femur and two fractured wrists.
