This is why tennis shoes are not even safe when you DONT crash.
i went out with my Gf on the back monday and rode around lake tahoe... was passing a minivan that was going about 50 or so, soon as i was just behind the bumper about to move over to pass it throws a stick up from the tire, I was probalby at about 70 mph or so, the stick hit my right foot... hit the seem in the shoe where its 2 layers of leather thick.. and still STUNG like a bastard.... now a few inches of my foot is black and blue. my track boots wouldnt even prevent this from hurting like a bastard. I think for the street i need a thick @$$ boot like an icon one. Heres a pic... 25,000 or more miles of riding and this has never happened before. Only suggestion is a boot thats super thick on the top and sides and to scoot over sooner beofre u get very close.
HMM k pics to follow when i can find the USB cable... i hate when ppl move stuff... Why does cleaning involve moving commonly used stuff i need on a weekly basis... Need to make sure the roomates know if i use it to never move it.
