It's late, I'm bored. Lets hear about some of your favorite battle marks in your favorite sport.

Mines a series of red dots on the inside of my right leg... I decided to run over it on a demo bike.

Hmm - it seems that my scars healed so the remaining ones are all internal:
Impinged left shoulder, broken wrist, cracked ribs, cracked finger, perforated ear drum.

All in the name of fun of course.  :-)

All of the scars I carry offer a piece of my history on a bike. :D I have no favorites. There are a few I talk about more than others though.

Both of my scars are from Loyce Harpe (formally Carter).  One on the back of my left leg and the other on my left shoulder blade.  The first climb on Rollercoaster gave me both.  Fell off to the right and a tree stopped me from sliding any farther down.  That climb haunts me to this day.

What do you mean no talk about shins. Didn't you see the titanium supported shin?

Mines gotta be the uniform scars on the back of my left leg.  My first set of platform pedals did it.  Thats what made me go clipless.
Pedal fast, Hit hard - pain is temporary, and chicks dig scars!!
