I wasn't sure how I was going to get off the bike when I got home and worried more about that then I did enjoying the ride but it was still great to get back on the bike and ride.
I've got a pair of old MX boots I bought 2 sizes larger when my foot was swollen. I would wear 3 pairs of socks in the undamaged foot, or my normal boot. You're welcome to them if they fit.

While bumping the "hardware" in my arm does cause some pain and bruising the screws in my arm have a locking mechanism in the head that prevents them from backing out of the plate. This was done over 2 years ago and i am not sure if this is standard procedure now or was just something for my scenario.

I have screws in 3 different parts of my body and so far none have moved to the best of my knowledge. The only one that hurts is my foot when it physically gets cold like on long winter rides. Makes me think it's more the metal expanding and contracting with the temperature change vs the bone which probably isn't affected dimensionally by temperatures. This whole situation proves that most people are wrong, I don't have a screw loose.

Probably any shop that caters an enduro clientele will sell them. Could be known as KTM shops. Probably any shop with dirt bikes in SE Ohio.
Iron Pony has the small cheap Moose racing one in stock:

I bought one from them years ago and mounted a standard ram mount diamond plate to the back so it can attach quickly and easily to my ram mount.

No snow here but really blowing and raining fairly hard. Nothing seems to be down or amiss.

Snowing here but not sticking thank God. Kinda slick out as it was sleeting when I ran out to get breakfast at 6:30 this morning. Other than that all is well on the western front.

Mine are in the ankle. 3 inside of it,and 13 pins and a plate on the little bone. Little bone broke over 8-10" and the big one broke in 2 places inside the ankle making a point. Basically 2 45 degree breaks one going each direction. Graduated on crutches. Took about 6 months to get out of the cast,another couple in a walking cast,then about 9 months after that for my leg to get back to the same size as the other. The first couple years were the worst with bumps and storm pain. Even then it's just dull aches for me. Anymore and I barely notice unless it's real bad or I want to.

Not that anyone cares, but we havent had any snow yet, just lots of rain and 60+mph wind here on the water. My concern is some VERY mature maple trees in our yard
And i don't have any fasteners in my body

Any chance of them hitting a structure on their way down?
