Went down.

Well it happened to me guys.. I was riding out in Waller County yesterday around noon and went over some very loose, rocky concrete that made my rear tire slid out from under me. It is amazing how slowly things developed and as I sit here I know I could of done several things differently that could of resulted in a different outcome. I always ride with full gear on and so my left ankle was the only thing injured. It was ever so slightly fractured and I was told it could of been worse if I didn't have my Dainese riding boots on. Over all guys I'm extremely happy I'm alright but man my bike could use some work.. Anyone know how or who I could sent my VFR too to have the fairing repaired?

Glad you're mostly OK and in good spirits.

Just wondering which boots you had and how the accident went down.... Basically I'm wondering why your ankle is even injured if you had riding boots on. I've seen people take some naaaasty tumbles and never an injured ankle with proper riding boots.

Hopefully this info can help others.

They are the Dainese SSC Charlie second skin boots.. The issue here was the fact I never kicked the bike away from me and held it till the end. The bike fell on the ankle and as my body tried to roll it was pinned under the bike. The Dr had to cut to boot off at the ER due to swelling but he stated that the fact the boots are so tightly rapped around the foot and ankle area it didnt allow for much twisting or movement which helped in the long run.

I've never been down before and I now understand how important it is to release the bike ad let it go ahead of you.. My fault for try to save her...

No I was totally alone. I went out for a quick run since I was scheduled to attend my annual sales meeting in CA this weekend. I knew I would miss the bike to I said "Heck lets go for a quick run" Needless to say I never made my flight this morning and all my co-workers are having tons of fun in Southern California with out me.

It truly is amazing how the body works. I felt no pain soon after the accident, and was even able to ride it home. I calmly parked it in the garage went inside got the keys to the truck and drove my self to the ER. My wife works at the new Methodist Hospital on I10 and I decided to pay here a visit.. lol

Couldn't agree more.. What drives me nuts is my tires were just purchased a month ago. I went with the Pilot Road 3 front and rear...

Gotcha... so it was more the twisting of everything, rather than an actual direct hit to the ankle. Good to know the boots did their job the best they could! Heal up quick!
