Well, I have Alpinestars motocross boots (no clue what they're called, Tech 6 or something). Only used them once or twice, didn't have my dual sport long enough. They're really stiff compared to a roadracing boot, I would have to move my entire leg up to upshift because the thing wouldn't give in the ankle. They would seem too bulky on a sportbike though.

Can you fit a brace inside your current boot? Get a larger boot to accomodate a brace? Fit a brace AROUND your current boot? Get a Brit bike that has the shifter on the other side?

Here's some with an integral ankle brace of sorts:

Sidi Vertebra

I think Sidi has a newer one with an internal 'bootie' with a brace that limits excessive movement. Saw 'em at Euro Cycle Specialties here in SoCal. Not sure that they were Sidi's though, and they were more $ than the Vertebras.

If it's the right leg I wouldn't worry. Just don't use your rear brake for a while (I don't anyway). If this is only a temporary injury you shouldn't really have a problem (of course it's an excellent excuse to get yourself some quality riding boots like the Sidis mentioned, the Alpinestars Supertechs, or the Daytonas).

Combat boots. Preferably jump boots. Lace them tight and you can march on a broken ankle. No bump protection, but loads of support.
