V-Strom in the Iron Butt Rally

Just caught a report of a V-Strom (wee) in the IBR:
Jim Winterer reported that he avoided a DNF only because he wears Rocky Eliminator boots. Jim, a trials rider, encountered high winds, dense fog, and patches of ice while riding up and down Mount Washington in New Hampshire. On the way down, at an estimated speed of 3 mph, he was literally blown over by the wind. His foot was pinned under his Suzuki DL650 and he could not get it free. He was pinned right in the middle of the road in heavy fog, "trapped like a rat." He considered for a moment whether he was going to have to hack his foot off with his Swiss Army knife. Fortunately, he was able to reach the laces on his boot, untie them, and wriggle his foot loose. He's banged up a bit but back on the road.
