Who knows. You're still here and still have your foot though, so life is good in the scheme of things. A local rider around me lost his foot last year in an accident with a car. I was just reading something about this the other day, though I can't remember where. Basically, in motocross, as the boot technology has increased, so have the knee injuries. In response to the knee injuries, better knee braces have been developed. With better boots and knee braces, femur injuries have risen. Not that I'm trying to make a case against wearing gear, just something interesting to think about.
