I bought motocross boots for riding on my KLR to help prevent a broken ankle. I started to go for a ride and couldn't get my size 16 boot under the shifter. Had to go in hiking boots instead. Maybe I need a heal toe shifter on the KLR? ha Went on an organized ride and dropped the bike crash bar on my ankle, the padding in the hiking boot prevented major damage, but the correct boots seems to me would have prevented any pain there.
