I admire a guy who will protect his bike from damage and rather see the car take the hit...... sorry about the ankle though  :biggrin: :thumleft:

 :biggrin: I wish I can say it was voluntary, but I share the sentiment.

Chopperpilot those are nice boots, I have Formas and is happy with the comfort but it has got the same 'issue' than the ones you just bought. I prefer the ones with the lip in front of the toes to help with gear changes. I was just too lazy to always 'dress up', but I think this unfortunate incident from Kykdaar made me safety conscious once again!

Have you heard back from insurance on the Jazz mate, shame man.....this is a bummer!

Still going through the insurance process, but I have a good broker and a good insurance company so I do not foresee any issues.

Ouch, hope that ankle is not broken.

Only got back yesterday. I'm ignoring that broken bike as much as I can, but I guess the weekend is creeping up on me, then it's back to fault finding.

Had the x-ray and sonar today

X-ray shows nothing broken.

Sonar revealed haematoma (bleeding) and a partial tear of the anterior talofibular ligament with some isolated fibres still intact.

Some other ligaments ( calcaneofibular and deltoid) have thickened as a result of the sprain.

Extensive subcutaneous oedema (code for swelling).

GP to confirm, but it seems I will heal up on my own although I will have to wear the moonboot for a
number of weeks still.

Hopefully I can get back on the bike soon :ricky:

I must be one very lucky guy. Hope it lasts.
Been biking for a very long time (I think close to 40 years) always just rode with tackies,plakkies and the last few years Bova safety boots. Had numerous falls and mishaps but no injuries(broken bones) to feet and ankles.
Reading about this mishap just make me realise again bad luck is just waiting around the next corner maybe, no matter what  :xxbah:
As time washes by, our footprints are all for naught

Still swollen 3 weeks later - can you believe that shit? Physio starts next week.

Ja, I also lead a charmed life up to now. Putting on riding gear is a real PITA for me, but I am slowly coming around to reality - especially with the bones getting softer with age.
