Boots, Tires and Resting Place for My Bike


My boots, Alpinestars Toucans need new soles.  I am a short rider for the F8 and often have to really push off my left boot to get the bike up from its stand and it shows.  Still an amazing boot for the price and 100% H20 proof and so comfortable.  My Heidenau K60 Scout tires […]

February 6th 2015 – Day 24 It was chilly out this morning when I packed up.  I think it was about freezing.  I ended up using my heated liner and gloves all day.  I point this out because it’s the first time I have had to use heat for a while and the first time […]
