I don't have much documented, but here is a little love tap from my pedals to my shin, but there must be better scars out there?

no pics, but imagine your entire knee as a scar, and you get the picture. I also have many scars on the legs, but when I was doing aggressive inline, the majority of hits were to the knees. Recent MTB wrecks have only added to it.

My right shoulder is one massive scar because when I fall I always tuck in so that I hit with my right shoulder first and then do a roll.

Yep, my entire left knee is a scar. Same goes for my shins. And for a long time I had a cool series of pinhole scars on my ankle where the chainring went through my Achilles tendon in a nasty crash. No pics though, sorry.

I guess that's not the first thing on our minds when we crash and come up bloody and in pain "Hey! Lemme take a pic of this!".

My left knee used to be a big, ugly mess with scars on top of scars (my husband would say, "But at least you're landing on the non-drive side of your bike!" ). Then this summer I was hit by a car while riding home. You know it's bad when you can see clearly down to your kneecap and even see the tendons holding it in. The ER doc sliced away most of the skin around the knee to get a clean suture. 30 stitches later, most of the gnarly scars are gone but now have one big-ass scar that could compete with Frankenstein's monster in a battle scar showdown. But I kinda miss my old scars..... I enjoyed the look of horror when people heard stories on how I got them. Now most people think the new scar is from a surgery cuz no one can believe it's from being hit by a car.

Oh, I also have a perfectly circular scar on my right knee from having the end of my handlebar hit it. I didn't have it capped and my husband ended up picking skin tissues out of the handlebar. I was too freaked out by it. (Shudder!)

I think everyone should keep a camera handy for photographing there wounds. the best would be a sequence of shots showing the wound happening. I guess you could call that a video. yea lets see your crash videos!

I have a nasty scar on my leg from a aluminum flat pedal about a year ago or so... I'll get pics.. I have no feeling in the area, and the pedal went into my muscle and cut a little chunk out of it. I got 11 stiches (I know kind of weak but hey... it still hurt) and the women that was cleaning it out at the hospital was EXTREMELY HOT!!!!!! I'll get pics of it later and post them.

I recently got a nice pedal tattoo on the back of my left leg. I slipped a pedal and my foot slid forward, the pedal slammed into my leg then drug upwards. I now have a very nice "U" and below it a "H". So, I call it my University of Hawaii Tattoo. Although I didn't go there.

Pics on my home puter.

pedal hit the back of my heal damaging the tendon. Doesn't look so bad, but it hurt for a couple weeks.
