I agree with that 100%.
My worst crash was 25 mph or less, 5 ribs, spine, clavicle, scapula, spleen, lung.
High speed crashes: sand in helmet, a little road rash, sprained finger...
Never broke a bone at high speed, but I guess it could happen.
But somehow, I don't think going real fast all the time is a good idea...

For some reason the worst crashes are often the slowest, and the most painful are often the least 'dramatic'. Dunno why, but often works out that way. Having said that, huge, high speed crashes can end badly to. Unfortunately it seems to come down to luck, or the lack of it. Wayne Rainey hardly crashed compared to Kevin Shwantz and look how that turned out. Hope your healing up ok and sorry for your unlucky crash!
