I went down when I hit a patch of gravel and my leg got smashed between the Versys and the asphalt. The foot-stay snapped in half, shift lever bent, and the cowling was a little scratched. I picked it up and walked it home, thinking my ankle was just sprained. I fixed the Versys and was actually out riding it again, and working (I'm a nurse, so I work on my feet for 12 hours at a time).
Well, the pain in my leg kept getting worse, so I figured I'd visit the ER downstairs one day after my shift was over. They took an X-ray, and when it developed, I realized it was more than just a sprained ankle.
So, I'm off the Versys for now, and on crutches until the orthopedic doc says I can resume normal activity.
