I've got to show off my new boots. They're Chippewa Rally Boots. Made in the USA, and look and feel like quality heavy duty boots. I've been wanting a pair of these for years. Now, I've got them.
When my bike is wallowing through the twisties like a drunken Hippopotamus, I'll remind myself that I could have spent the money on suspension improvements, but instead, I bought boots. Hey; the bike's getting new wheels and tires; I deserve new boots. Fork and shock upgrades are on the list. I'll get to them as money allows.
