3rd gear, front tire deflected off a rock, shoulder first into a dirt/rock bank. I'm going back to the ortho surgeon tomorrow to schedule surgery for next week. I'm REALLY ready to get it stabilized, as the smaller piece of bone keeps moving around...not fun.

That is the way they happen!
I did the scapula also, along with a bunch of other bones plus other stuff.

Long term, you might do better with getting it fixed, what with all the sharp edges and so on.
I did not and its still screwed up 1.5 years later.

When you get older and have a fall like that the spine tends to break also.
That causes long term problems that do not clear up...

ER doc said the only thing keeping the pointy end of the break in, is the thickness of my skin. It has took the surgeons a couple of days to decide exactly how to fix it, as the distal end of the clavicle is thin, and also has a fracture.

It's my understanding most motorcyclists are actually born with a broken collar bone, it's just not diagnosed until later in life. It's like inherently broken when you're born if you have motorcycles in your DNA, least that's what my brother's friend's cousin told him he heard from a guy that read it in a magazine or something.

I just talked with Brian...out of surgery. Doc said SEVERAL fractures and bone fragments not visible on x-rays. No use of left arm for ANYTHING for 3-4 weeks.

I guess that means his bike will be vacant for the next hare-scramble...Hmm...maybe he'll be so doped up he'll not realize I've "borrowed" his bike for a weekend..HA...

I was told by a doc once it only take 4-7 pounds of force to break your collarbone. I broke my right one after 20 plus years of rideing, only broken bone I have ever had.

Was riding with a buddy who landed long on a jump and broke both of his at the same time. Another buddy lowsided on a turn at less than walking speed, basically fell over from going too slow and broke his.

It took about 3 weeks to reattach itself and a few more until I was riding. My right shoulder it about an inch lower then my left because it didnt attach quite right. The doc told me it would be a much stronger bone if you didnt use pins, and it was a simple break.
