Haven't had many concussions, but did get a mild one this season. I slipped on a rail and hit the back of my head on it. My buddies got me out of the way so other people could hit the rail, and I could collect myself. I was seeing double and everything was a massive blur, I got myself down to the lodge and sat there for another 45 mins before my vision to corrected itself. What's funny is that my buddies had to explain the crash to me later because I couldn't remember it. Also, I went and rode for another 6 hours that day.

I agree with a lot of the others if you want to be safe go do something else. The better you get at this sport the more of a risk you are going to take. This sport is all about pushing yourself...so just put on a helmet and cowboy up.
