    Riding in sneakers? Are you nuts? I wouldn't ride further than the outhouse at a campground 100 yds. away at 5 mph in running shoes. [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.tw200forum.com/forum/images/smilies/ohmy.gif[/IMG]

    Nobody ever claimed I was smart.

    Death wing bucked me off on some golf ball gravel. Only thing hurt was my pride. And being that only cows saw me do it, pride quickly returned.
    If nobody saw you do it, it didn't happen.

    I literally get hurt to some degree EVERY outing. This time I tumbled into a bush when the TW didn't have enough ass to climb a hill and then got a 3rd degree burn on my leg when I loaded it into my truck. I'm afraid my wife is going to quit letting me go every week! The burn should make a nice scar anyway!

    They do make a good scar. Mine is on my forearm and hurt less than it should have.
    I also sprained a few fingers deflecting a branch so it didn't run me through.
