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 are the bomb.  Keep the PSI up and they last forever.  Rear has over 17,000 KM’s and still has plenty of tread left and the front has over 14,000 and is in really good shape.

My bike will stay in this exact place until I get back to the USA.  First time we are separated and yes, I will have a difficult time not being able to ride back in BC.  But…at least she has a spot with a window view 😉
