Default 4 wheels good, 2 wheels better

Thought I'd just share this.

Quad biking in France earlier this year, tried to take a corner a wee little bit too fast-bike tumbles over-me with broken collar bone







However was at back of group in middle of nowhere, had to jump back on bike whichc had rolled over a couple of times and was back on 4 wheels), then keep riding for another 40mins. Too embarrassedd to tell our guide.

Still great fun, but prefer 2 wheels

Anyone else got any x-rays/grussome pics to share

Hardcore! Extra points for getting back on and continuing to ride.

I broke my back in two places 18 months ago, and my wrist for good measure, in a MTB accident. Highly recommended for acces to quality drugs and 4 months off work! Make sure you've got an understanding partner though...

Only one of the breaks is shown below as it is the xray taken when I was admitted and they didn't think to xray the rest of my back until 6 weeks later!

A chap at Qinetiq that I was dealing with at the time sent me this:



The zip was actually fitted for easy access in case they needed to do surgery. The pacman must have slipped in whilst I was high on painkillers.

Default 3 wheels even better!

Got a few of these at home but no real injuries yet!! Plenty of people have managed to get some though.
