    another broken bone

    yesterday, while riding my new Banshee Scream, which I will try to post pics of, I broke my c bone, again. Although I do have a dainese upper suit, I didn't were it because I had done the jump like millions of times so I didn't think I needed it. I will be riding again sometime around my b-day, feb 18. so the moral is, were your pads, all the time, happy new year and I will post pics of my bike hopefully within the week. cheers,

    Depending on how your c-bone breaks, I-horse, you are right - a pressure suit may not prevent a break. Hitting your shoulder hard enough to flex the bone out may still cause a break, but wearing armor may lessen the blow.
    Good luck with your healing. Collarbone breaks are a b*tch, but at least they do heal relatively quickly.
