I think everyone feels comfortable with their ability to be successful on features. Many don't like extra bulk.

even so.. body armor still would have not prevented me smashing my bones. Nor would it have prevented me breaking my neck. No matter what you do to protect yourself no one is ever invincible. Not saying protection is never a good idea.. it's just something I think we feel we need less of the better you get at the sport. The one piece I will one day invest in is spine protection.. but of course after I get all the other more important safety features out of the way.. like Avy courses and a beacon/probe (got the shovel.)
Eh, wait'll you get older. Shit just ain't the same.

Get off my lawn.

Amusing for me when a young turk on a forum says they don't need armor because they don't fall or they heal quick or that armor is for the gayperzzz....always chuckle to myself. Just wait kid, just wait.

You are not far off on that last sentiment there either. I sometimes see guys take huge falls, hurt something, and I think to myself, "man, I can feel that in my bones. maybe I should get that spine protector (or whatever). Sure looks like it could come in handy."

Signs you know your old: when you breeze through the new armor page each year looking for new tech. Used to be just boards, bindings, boots....

Thanks guys. How ya'll been?
Thought I could see some writing on the bottom right pic in the X Rays. Didn't think an xray of a tat but some inks are made from metals so it might.

Hitting A51 until the end of the season (this weekend) then going to ride Park Lane and Breck. Sorry to hear about the arm; spring park days are my favorite so I'd be bummed ... not to bum you out or anything. Who knows, might get broke off in the next few days and join you right on the DL.

Just so you know, this isn't just you. From your other post I think I'm taking the same pain meds as you right now and have had the same issues. Really really weird and freaky dreams. Totally vivid shit. They went away after the first week or two so if you need more of the meds it should go better.

You must have a high pain tolerance though, remember seeing your post about thinking you "might" have broken your arm...then it turns out to be in 30 pieces.
