Well there is sober third thought and all the more incentive to get used to riding in my MX boots, really not taking to them just yet but will keep at it.

Good thoughts flowing that way for a speedy recovery

Gee, this sucks

I had an injury alot like you have back in 2010. If the first dr had put me back together right, no problem. But he didn't, 2011 all was about 4 surgeries. Workers comp spent $300,000 from the knee down on my left leg. Now I am medically retired, added a sidecar, and all is good. I hope your recovery is swift, and you can get back to doing what you enjoy.

Craig,
The BMW Owners of NS (includes VSTROM users) is sending you healing kharma .
Heal well and fast. I have no doubt you will be in the saddle before the next Bluenose.
Get them to look at that middle finger too. Looks like it took a hit too. LOL.
Seriously, take care. :)

Thanks, Amedee!

The middle finger was because the BMW Raodside assistance I was promised did NOT include a large Starbucks Latte!

Bummer C-Stain, hoping you have a quick and painless recovery.

Question though, was this a crushing break, or twisting break etc. Did you foot get caught under the bike/foot peg or what? Looks like somebody took a baseball bat to it, trying to figure out how a low side does that much damage.

It's more of a twisting break and I think I tried to "dab" it when I was going over. It happened so fast, I can't say for sure. But if I had to lay money down, I'd do it on the dab.

Well, 3 days post surgery and I gots a new covering. Lots of pain, coupled with some numbness and tingling from the swelling in my foot.

I appreciate all the well wishes! If FredGreen show up here again maybe he can post pics of the tire marks to get an idea of what happened. There are some in my camera, but those are somewhere with my bike.

I predict

I predict you will have a collection of these boots. I had all of these not including about 10 or so hard casts. I got bored and used some duct tape and made a couple of custom boots. I had alot of free time.

pics of tire tracks as requested, it appears to be an overcorrection, then lowside. I would think the foot went down instinctively, got caught, then twisted and was crushed from above by the weight of the bike and the dude riding it. Craig is still lying where he landed in the first pic, all I did was pick the bike up and put the sidestand down, so the angle it is pointed is exactly where it was pointed after the dismount.



here you can see the tracks of the beemer clearly on the right side of the pic

Busting out of the hospital today and heading home! Was told by the surgeon that I needed to master stairs on crutches and after I went up and down at supersonic KLR speed - they gave me a handful of dilaudid and said, "Get the fuck outta here!"

Waiting for Mrs and the Stain-mobile, but should be free and clear in a couple of hours!

Ouch! You have my sympathies! When I broke my tib/fib/ankle, no weight bearing for me for 12 weeks. Hopefully, you will be PWB long before that! Heal up quickly.

Also, you probably already know about these things, but I found a fleece toe cover to be really nice to keep the piggies warm, and this Dry Pro cast cover made showering possible:

Ewwww, Craig, so sorry to hear of your misadventure. So glad you had your buddies along to help and take documentary photos to share with the world. That reminds me I need to stop riding in touring boots and get something taller and with more protection.

I hope you heal fast. I spent 3 months in a cast and a few years hobbling after a car accident. Not a fun time. I didn't have to lie in the mud for three hours waiting for the ambulance though. Arggg.

Take care and I hope we see you in August.
