Lets see if this gets a response.........

They are too busy making "evil profits" selling motorbikes than to spend time dealing with the "working class" proletariat.  Eat cake now and leave the upper crust alone.

Back on the subject........ I love my leathers, but in the summer heat, they roast your gonads. I work in an environment that allows shorts & polo type shirts. It looks funny riding a bike  with shorts on, but 70 mpg vs 20 in my Saturn,, no contest. I ride the bike !

These boots:

Add any preferable pants

And you have good, breathable-but-still-good-for-chilly-weather, riding gear.  At least, that's what I wear.

The bonus is that if you switch out your helmet for a winter cap with foldable earmuffs, and add some halycon goggles, and a brown duster, you look kind of like a certain, 3-day-stay, travelling person.

Interesting info, but this thread isn't about 'what do you wear'. It was a question (third time asked) about adding a new section to the forum which, for some reason, none of the admin seems to want to answer.


I must retreat to my place of Zen and meditate on this.

Nobody is going to paint theirself into a corner on this one. Can't blame them. There are countless brands of boots from chippewa and milwaukee (my personal faves) to HD to xelement to trusty ol' work boots that do great for riding. Hi-top sneakers offer very similar, if not equivalent, protection for ankles. Then consider jackets: bomber, classic, varsity, etc., etc. The forum is somewhat limited to fixed, or few, products and services for the RE bikes. Apparel is oceans wide and deeper.

My wife and I have both bought new jackets and boots online recently and the reviews offered on the host sites were absolutely perfect descriptions of the products, shipping and cust. service.

Not trying to be the devil's advocate, but I like the support on the forum to be more focused on keeping my classic and me riding.........
