Yea, I think it's old nerve damage, it's bugged me before, but never to this level.
So figured I should turn around and come home... Better safe than sorry. :-)

Not to be alarmist or anything, but:

Don't fuck around if it's something potentially serious.

Edit: Ignore - I saw the followup posts afterwards, but good info anyway.

Yea, I'm pretty sure it's leftover nerve damage from either breaking my back, multiple shoulder and collar bone injuries...
But I think I'm going to go to Dr if it isn't better tomorrow..

i dont go numb but i do have alot of pains going down from the neck all the way to my fingers...neck gets so bad i lose full range of motion and i cant turn my head quick enough when riding thus i dont ride...usually I ice my neck down for a day and make alleve a food group...after a day of icing..the next day i take a hot tub soak or a long hot shower and more alleve...Once I had a shot of cortisone...it worked for a few months...

My right and left arm go numb all the time. But mine is just a "I can't feel my fingers" numb. Vibration makes it worse and position makes it worse which is why the KLR and VFR both went away. The Uly and V-Strom weren't to bad. Hope it feels better so you can go on those 15 mile rides again soon Rugby!

hey, I did over a hundred miles on Saturday and a lot of that was dirt. (ok, well, probably less than half, but it felt like a lot cause I also had to help pull/push/lift a drz quite a few times. )

I've been old. That's why I realized I should give up rugby.

Tried running out between storms today, got about 200 yards in the sunshine and the sky opened up on me. Turned around, came home. got in the car, went up to Shorty's for a dog.

Drove right past the tag too. Thought about taking a pic of the car there....

Rode right by the tag and you didn't take a pic?? That's proof you are getting old

Nice grab.
Wish I could have gone, but I'm not real comfortable riding with my left arm numb...

:(
