So, where's some pics of the mud - haven't had mud here for so long, I've forgotten what it looks like.

Now imagine you were wearing soft touring boots.

Heal well.

Wow yeah like Kaboef said, that would've been nasty in touring boots. My crash was in sneakers but I doubt I would've been any better off in touring boots. MX boots would've lowered the severity significantly but they can't stop everything

Especially Sidi Crossfire boots, which in my opinion are the best boots out there.

Eishh ! Andy sorry to hear , speedy recovery "one" step at a time.  :thumleft:
ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)

Yeah, I rate the SIDI right up there.. it must have been quite a force to break bones through those boots  :o

All the best for the recovery Andy!
They say that drinking alcohol slows the healing process, so be sure to budget in an extra week or two!
