In my crash, I highsided...landed on my head which caused the bottom of my Arai to break my collarbone in two places.
Thats exactly right. The bottom edge of my Shoei broke my collarbone while landing on my head after a trip over the handlebars. It took 6 months to join and then almost a year before it healed. It hurt for another year after that. I remember the doctor saying that "it's like an envelope that you seal, and if you break that seal before it fuses together it will take twice as long to heal".

I think one of those neck braces would work to protect the collarbone. I saw someone on a KTM990 wearing one on the freeway today.
