Title: whoopsy i had an oopsy!
Post by: Firecoast on January 30, 2011, 09:02:16 pm
So yesterday on the way to oasis I politely decided to have an impromptu flying lesson. Fell badly on my foot. Can't post pics from bb but waiting for x-rays. Doc says this amount of swelling and the bruising indicates a broken something something. Will keep you posted, but for now I'm happy cos I've been given drugs.

Ek is vroeer die oggend op die selfde pad deur, en om die een draai, net voor mens regs draai Algeria toe, het een of ander d@@s 'n ry rugbybal grootte klippe regoor die pad gepak.
Ek moes "stop" en het toe sommer maar die klippe uit die pad gegooi.

First, sorry about your off. Hope you heal quick.
I have the EVS Vision knee braces and they fit with well with my MX boots. 1 pair R2000.
Title: Re: whoopsy i had an oopsy!
Post by: Firecoast on February 01, 2011, 09:14:27 am
thanks hun.

well, if i wear my mx boots i can't wear my knee guards or my pants.... so less protected in a way.... usually just wear jeans with my mx boots, so if i had fallen with them i might have been ok with my foot, but other parts might have gotten hurt.

will look into something when i am up in joburg.

kinda feel a bit cheated to be honest. hahahahahaha... first time i break anything and it's my toe. i wanted a cast dammit!!!!! dakota already had my sticker kit and spray paint ready for pimping it. tee hee

So what did the doc say, how long before you can go riding again?
Title: Re: whoopsy i had an oopsy!
Post by: Firecoast on February 01, 2011, 10:05:18 am
Firecoast, you need to sort out your ATGATT. You were lucky this time, but the more you ride, the faster and more technical will be the routes you take. Jeans are crap, and so are those brothel-creeper shoes you were wearing. It is entirely possible to have a combination of good rip/abrasion proof pants, knee guards and proper boots that all work together.

Here endeth the sermon.   :deal:

i don't ride in jeans...

i ride in as much ATGATT as my bank balance can afford. i feel naked and very much unprotected when i ride in less.... so i try to be as safe and protected as much as possible.

ja het vir seker twee ure langs die pad gesit en wonder wat om te doen. het gese hulle moet my maar los in clanwilliam en toe almal se hulle gaan saam toe se ek nee, strap maar die voet.... ek gan beslis nie die party pooper wees nie.

het maar klein fiets gery oasis toe en was maar skrikkerig vir my voet uitsit.

sondag was 'n stryd om voet in boot te kry, maar hy moes... so huis toe gery... maar ja, asof my confidence wat ek opgebou het met een val in sy moer is....
