    I’ll take that as a compliment Mr Hoots.

    I don’t think the brake will be the problem mate. I’m more concerned about my arch on the footpeg. The arch is your midfoot where I’ve done the damage. I might have to fab an aluminium inner sole.

    The left rear brake lever I have always wanted for rear steering. Whether my brain could work with it is another thing.

    Funny you should say that as I have had orthodics made for both feet, the right one is shaped to fill the now large arch in my foot , this is to support the metatarsal...without them, especially the right for I can not stand or walk for extended periods..
    It is solid plastic with a covered upper and some padding...have had them for years and they really to a great job in supporting your foot.

    Al, I put a Clake on my Beta 300RR late last year and I bloody love it. It's just like a mountain bike, index fingers cover and easily control both front and rear brakes. It only took a couple of rides to get my head around it, and I also have no problem swapping back to non-Clake bikes.

    I wasn’t going to go the Safari tank route. I just couldn’t pass this up.

    I want to get some perforated graphics if anyone has a lead.

    The Clake really is a good idea - even without the foot prob, plenty of times when it would be good to keep the feet on the pegs and use your left hand to brake - from memory, B1 has a few nice vid reviews in his crosstraining channels

    Re' foot - unless the surgeon has advised that standing will be an issue going forward, would not preempt that - I've broken two metatarsals in my left foot and no probs - that said, all fractures are not equal

    i wont be standing on it mate. No weight bearing till the pins come out in 4 weeks.

    The left brake idea wasnt because of my foot. I just like the idea of handbraking the rear.

    Yeah, I reckon it might be something I could get used to.
