Wear riding boots! Definatly investing in another pair since I grew out of mine. You can get road rash burns and break your ankle. Unfortunately I got all 3 in my ankle and road rash everywhere. So happy my kx250f survived the fall with only bent forks that we were lucky enough to be able to make it unoticable. Heres a pic of the same day it happend, its been a over a moth and it still freakin hurts.
