[QUOTE=betitolara;20080111][COLOR=White]***You can see in the photos that Ellen's bike was NOT carrying the hard cases
Very likely, since she just 'dropped' her bike on its side while coming to a complete stop, the hard cases would have actually protected her ankle
You are absolutely right Alberto, It's the only time I didn't have my cases on because it easier for riding on the dirt. It was my bad habit while stopping causes the problem. My stopping has caused some many problems and it's time to sort it out. I MEAN IT too. From now on every time I stop, I watch out for the ground and concentrate on my bike before doing anything else.
Very lucky I can pretty much walk around now. In town of Durango last night, had a good look around, such a beautiful place. I wonder why people say Mexico is not safe?
