Didn't happen to me. but my friend had a low speed spill on his 250 this afternoon. Shoe lace got loose after riding about 1/2 hr and got stuck in the chain...thank goodness he was going 10-15mph and was wearing all the protective gear... just a mangled ankle.

Thought i'd share.

PS. please make sure your shoe laces are on tight.

Avoid laces if possible, if not take the time to tuck them in.

A more common problem with riders with laces is that the laces get caught up on something and when they try to stop they can't get their feet down. Fortunately this usually only causes embarassement and not scars.

Hope you friend gets well soon.

Flip flops have no laces....


Really though, I've got MC specific boots from teknic, and my regular boots have very short laces. If you laces are long you gotta tuck them in, it'll save you a lot of pain and embarassment.

Thats what they make riding boots for!! :roll:
Riders in CA don't even know what a riding boot is let alone a jacket.

This is the tennis shoes/shorts/T-shirt riding captial!

Most of those riders are of course younger and have a big "S" on their chest or feel that they can not afford the gear although they have the latest performance upgrade on their bike.

yup, I was in a mood last night, and something about the rolling eyes was getting to me last night, that and I got yelled at for giving advice on meeting at a gas station but ken suggested something before it and nothing seemed to happen there...maybe it's because he helped her out but I'm not partial to being separated from a group that has done the same thing
