Has anyone here ever broke their Collarbone? I broke mine this past Saturday while riding a ATV. I know that healing times vary from 6 weeks up to 6 months depending on age and physical shape. I'd just lie to get an idea how long I'm gonna be out of the saddle. DAM!....Just when summers about to begin! THIS SUCKS!

noooooo,...not at all. Just the opposite I would think. He was a teenage boy still trying to ride bikes, wrestle and all that. Think about being 14 and how you do not take care of your injuries.
If he took care of it, it would not have been that long. Assuming you take care of it I would not expect any longer than 8 weeks.
You are looking at about 6-8 weeks if you take it easy!! Don't forget to wear that figure-8 thing they gave, as it keeps the ends lined up and heal quicker. Good luck and you will be riding again before you know it!!!
Thanks for the words of encouragement guys. Living in Washington State where nice warm sunny days pretty much only happen in June, July and August makes me really value my riding time. I'll be sure to rest up and hopefully be able to get some riding time in by August.
Yes, mine was broken for me when I was in the 3rd grade. Same as I am today.... defending my rights......(((((BAM))))) broken collar bone. It sticks out on one side.....apparently didn't heal up exactly right..... Seems like it didn't take all that long to heal up but did crap my style for awhile.
