Yes, had on good sturdy boots, but 225 pounds of bike that starts out vertical then slams down with all it's weight on your ankle and lower leg just isn't cool. Broke the fibula, cracked the tibia, smooshed all the ligaments and tendons on the top....fun fun fun.

I'll be back in the 930 next spring, mostly because the weather is starting to winterize (snowed today). So outside of the foot, I have a good excuse to abstain driving it.
Ouch! I know from my experience that soft tissue injuries (torn ligaments, etc) are worse that broken bones. Remember to do physical therapy when you are healed. Also, drink lots of milk.
