I was wearing sidi Discoveries.

X-rays came back clear, so.....apparently I lost my foot.

no breaks or fractures. Just tweaked the fuck out of my foot, and bruised my knee a bit. I guess maybe its time for some real dirt bike boots, not just dual sport'ers. And maybe I should slow down

I can try to come out for a little while Saturday afternoon.

Slow down! There's plenty of time to slow down when you're dead.

In addition to better boots you might want to get some knee braces too. I've seen it happen plenty of times. Guy gets a better boot and now his foot and ankle are protected but now the force is transferred to the knee.

Sorry about your foot man. Glad nothing is broke.

might be worth some a sports doc assessment, torn or bruised can be worse long term than a break. I know from my ankle, doc said "damn, you should have just broken it, much easier to fix" It still give me trouble and always will.
I hear large amounts of booze help, so at least you partially equipped!

Well, at least some good news....


+1 on the sports doc Gary mentioned....or at least a podiatrist....

With that much bruising I'd expect some ligamentous injury....

Lottsa stuff to f-up in the foot....

The Mayor's motorcycle endeavors are dusting off the bikes in the garage lately... kinda like mine for the last few years.

If your riding a DR650 like its an actual dirtbike,bad things can happen.
Ive scared the crap out of myself doing tricks on my DR that my 530KTM wouldnt even notice.

Really good handling bikes are safe bikes,of course the 530 will do 90+ uphill in the sand so you gotta watch that.

Flexy-Flier ADV boots are just that,a dirtrider would call em ankle breakers.
But they're more comfy.
