Thats quite a collection of broken bits mate.

Did you manage to ride out with all that broken hardware or was it ambulance time.

I was riding solo at the time. No phone service in the area. Rode 8 to 10 miles of trails to get out then 35 miles pavement to get home. It was brutal.

You get the badass of the week award. Always makes me think twice about riding solo

Yes, hard core.
I did about the same but had a few more bones broken, and was NOT riding out.
One day in the hospital is amazing, I was in over a week because of a spleen problem, and just going home was brutal.

That's exactly why I'm considering a Spot. I'm afraid of dumping it in the mountains solo with no cell coverage (near PNW).

I was wearing full offroad gear including chest protector and full armor. I was riding up around Sugarloaf off HWY 87 between lower and upper Sycamore. I wish I had a cool story but I wasn't riding anything technical,... just lost the front wheel and went down like a ton of bricks.

Left turn low side? How fast?

Sounds like you hit pretty hard on the one side, you didn't have heavy chunk of metal attached to your hip at the time did you?

Good luck with the recovery. Stay ahead of the pain with those little pills.

I was on my 530.

Low side on the left side only going about 15-20 mph. The front tire blew through the soft sand at the top of a tall berm and I just went down hard.
