Glad you're mostly ok.  As for the rain suit repairs, maybe try Tenacious Tape?  I haven't used it yet, but Patagonia likes it for their repairs program, so it probably doesn't suck.

As with the other posters, I'm glad that you're in one piece, and that there doesn't appear to be any serious damage apart from the rain suit (and pride).

Shame about having to take an unscheduled break with all that fine wine and dining...

Thanks all for your good wishes ( @Bfd70 , @Chris , @Giles , @Graeme and @Aetas ). Ankle still swollen and tender but I think it is improving so I plan to ride on tomorrow.

I won’t be able to try out the Tenacious Tape and Gorilla Tape solutions as they aren’t available here. I’ll need to order them so it’ll be some time before I can report on results.

I’ve been using my 8” White’s Farmer Rancher boots on the bike but the gusseted tongue won’t let my swollen foot inside. Luckily I brought another pair of boots (IH/Viberg hikers which I bought off @Appfaff ) on this trip and which takes my fat foot in without flinching. It looks funny though once they are laced up. I’ll get a pic tomorrow.

Cheers from the land of Malbec!
The journey is the objective.

We can ship you some of that tape with your next order if you like....

Your most generous offer is accepted! Thanks guys. Got the double indigo shirt already stacked and waiting on the madras work style...so I’ll be in Spain early June, and I’ll request you send that package there through the proper channel.

Here is a pic of Viberg/IH hikers handling uneven feet, no sweat, but looking odd.

Right boot has an extra inch at the top part of the lacing.

Is it wrong that I'm liking the new Rocket 3?

that would be a cone knuckle motor (a cone shovel/evo bottom end with a knucklehead top end, i believe s&s makes them) in a drop seat panhead frame

Late reply, but I can attest to Gorilla Tape's quality...

When I was doing a 30day field training event in the Army, I blew the crotch out of my uniform pants during a 20km movement drill.

When I got a chance I took the pants off, flipped them inside out, and tapped the tear from the inside.

*Uniforms are ripstop, so the tears were minimally frayed.

The repair was so good that I forgot about it totally...

When i got back home and washed my uniforms, i noticed the tape after removing the pants from the dryer, and it was still intact... Those pants lasted for another few months and MANY wash & dry cycles before I cycled them out of rotation, but they could have definitely lasted longer.
