Last ten miles of dirt today, I loose my ground and tip over. Somehow my foot gets caught and twisted for 180 degrees. And it's get trapped under bike. I was alone but managed to wiggle out and get the bike up. Don't look good now when it got cold. And it hurts like ****. Thank god for cruise control on my pickup. I'll wait till Monday, and then go see a doctor.

Otherwise it was awesome. My first time here and I was overwhelmed by the beauty of it. I'll post some more pictures and videos as soon as I edit them.

Sorry to hear about this, Goyko. That's a big bike to fall on you. Hope it all heals quickly.

Sorry to hear it. That looks suspiciously like my foot did in Mexico. Hopefully yours will turn out better. Good luck. Let us know what the doc says.

The worst part is that I stoped almost completely and when I tried to put my feet on the ground I slipped and tipped over on side. Still not sure how my foot got twisted like that. I start to think that I need to lower my bike a little bit. This is not the first time thing like this happened.

What was the damage on you foot in Mexico?
Displaced fracture of the fibula and permanent nerve damage to toes and ball of foot. Didn't think it was broken at the time, just a really bad sprain. My daughter who's a nurse forced me to go to doctor. Good thing she did. Whatever you do make sure you have it checked out.

Yeah, it hurts even more now. I'm sitting at the ER while I type this, waiting to get it checked
