    I need a photographer so I can get a better profile pic of in-action riding. The one I use now shows my bad side.

    Went to the powerlines to explore a new section. Great weather!

    Starting to look more like my old avatar....

    Right now dabbing a foot down hurts but I'll get back to the action shots once my knee is up to it.

    I hope you don't mind a compliment - You're posts always make me think, "Wow that Trail Woman can ride!!!" Followed immediately by, "Whoa that Trail Woman is a smoking hot babe..."

    Thanks
    I'm really happy to be in Canada since I can ride year round. I don't think I could handle riding in the summer heat in some parts of the US. Especially with riding gear on.

    My knee was starting to feel better that day but I had a unpredictable bounce to the side that caused me to put my foot down and it set me back. It's been aching since so I really have to take it easy now. I might be out of riding for another week unless it's super tame riding. Which is not easy to do. lol

    I would strongly recommend wearing riding boots. Hiking boots and work boots just do not cut it.
    I attended a "FRED" (Friday Rider Education while Drinking) talk at the Loose Screw in Kamloops this weekend and the topic of footwear came up.
    Hell, I get shit from my more aggressive riding buddies for wearing the Forma Adventure boots.

    Here is some easy to say but hard to do unsolicited advice: Try to not re-injure yourself again while enjoying the remainder of the riding season. Those soft tissue injuries take long enough to heal even when pampered. Re-injured them and they can become lifelong annoyances.

    Looks like a lot of fun there. . But take it easy on that leg. I know all too well the difficulties of recovering from leg injuries (three times I been told they were going to possibly amputate my left leg below knee and three times I dodged that bullet). Today almost 7 years later the legs still weaker but I function at about 80% of what I used too.

    Off road I sometimes feel good and push it a bit harder than I should and then I’m back to maybe 50% for weeks later. It’s just not worth it.

    I haven't rode the TW in a few days now...feeling a lot better but not enough to risk bringing it back.

    I'm only a few years into my 40s with sciatica and an impinged shoulder so I'm very aware of life long annoyances. Both require regular exercise and stretches without which and I'd be in pain. Most the times I still feel like a teenager.

    Boots would not have helped at all in this case where it was my knee taking too much weight/force. The only way protective gear may have helped is if I wore all of it and went down on my side with the bike instead of planting a foot to jump on the side ways bike. But then my hip or shoulder would be taking it...so it seems like no easy solution. For wearing shorts and tank top I got off lucky. The only damage sustained was my knee, handguard and plastic over the muffler. It was however a good reminder to ride how I'm dressed and coincidentally I have been looking into boots.
