As you may or may not know, Leondude went down at the summit of a steep hill on a ride this morning, he is ok and recovering with a fractured tibula and fibula I understand, so a broken leg  ::) But otherwise ok and the KLR broke an indicator  ::)

The current rain is making some "newbie" terrain very not "newbie freindly"!!!

Get well soon Leon  8)

Ouch eina bliksem! Hang in there with the recovery Leon, Im sorry to hear about this, but glad to hear it was not more serious. A broken leg is pretty bad but its better than a broken neck  :o

Maybe you need to ride faster boet ;D  :pot:

Seriously, would be keen to learn about the circumstances, we can always learn something from these things.

Great minds think a like..Maybe the mods can merge the two.


Howzit MM, Ya maybe the clever mods can fix, thanks for letting me know, if its a decision is it a fracture not a full break or a combination?
