Yup,

Entry too fast, muddy water all over the visor, take the wrong line BANG!  :confused2: I do think the Dakar is TOTALLY to blame. It doesn't give you the true sensation of the speed you're travelling at. (Well, this is what I told the wife when I got home and she read me he riot act.  :evil5:) One's gotta practice this stuff.

Thanks for the pics Mark,

Lawrence
p.s. Mark, get in touch if you got your new number.

Hey Wes,

Those boots look like bad news.  looking at the ankle part of the boot there appears to be little support. Reason i am saying this is because i have broken my ankle from boots looking like that. Ankle support from boots are a must. Just a observation. Could be the photo maybe too that is giving me the wrong impression.

they're sturdier than they look, and have held up pretty well in a few falls already.
you're probably right though, but i just don't have the dosh at the moment for MX boots  :(
