I also broke my left arm this year, also on my dirt bike!
To regain my strength I bought 2 Gripmaster Pros', It has individual sections for each finger to build greater dexterity. It is so painfully easy to compress (even the extra strong one), I would never buy them or anything even similar again.
If I was going to buy another piece of equipment it would be the "Captains of Crush" hand gripper as I have heard many good things about them. They have a large range of different spring tensions, they go up to 365lbs :P

The Captains of Crush grippers from Ironmind are great - I have the Trainer, #1 and #2. Unfortunately, they can become expensive. I also have the GHP (Gillingham High Performance) 3, 4 and 5. As well as the $100 Vulcan adjustable gripper from David Horne's World of Grip (through the Diesel Crew).
Here's a page for everyone to see ratings, etc.:
