    So purple says: "My hovercraft is full of eels. Gotta meet this guy someday.

    As to the Forma Adventure boots I too went through the mental
    gymnastics of balancing protection against comfort and off-bike versatility. I could be snide and say at least the blow didn’t break my foot like it broke the TW frame but I can’t honestly say it all happened at once, it was an active week.9903ba7267c7a403a341d40b5a5a4b3f.jpg
    I decided I was still happy with the compromise afforded by the Forma Adventure boots. For example prior to the injury I had spent several hours confidently scampering around the Slickrock Single Track trail in the Formas. MX style boots likely would have made me nervous off the bike when trying to find traction on sloping rock. Yes I got hurt with a boot affording less than optimal crush protection but my old MX boots did not match my adventure riding style.

    P.S. - Prognosis indicates more motorcycling. Four digital X-Rays today indicate no real damage so I must be just a cry-baby.

    Last year I claimed there were few if any road signs on the long graded shortcut between Utah and Nevada. Turns out I was wrong, found this one at least: Oh, and I actually saw another car this time, a rancher's wife off to the big city lights


    Found other interesting signs too, somewhat better maintained: Quote sounds almost as if the writer was referring to TW-ing at Moab


    Amazing what a fellow can stumble upon: Looks like $96 stage fare from Houstin,TX to Austin, NV?
