With those passenger pegs for the mp3. Sandy and I were out for a ride today, and coming to a stop I let my left boot drop too low too soon. I hit the peg with a hard blow. If it had not been for the back part of my brace, I would not be surprised if it had broke my leg. Not to even go into what it would have done to the back of my calf. Grooved the plastic brace some. It was a wake up call for the both of us. dumb move of my part.

I actually managed to run over my foot on a victory vision because of doing the same thing. The vision has "tip over" protectors that protrude out and I put my foot down before I came to a complete stop. It would have broken my ankle except the boot provided the support. Another individual ripped his Achilles tendon on his Harley by catching his foot under the rear saddlebag.

A good warning to put out. Thanks.
