Itchy Legs from Offroad Socks/Boots?

Okay, I know this is odd. But, I'm going to ask anyway.

This past Saturday I rode the SheetIron 300 wearing (among other things) a pair of Fox motocross socks and a pair of Tech4S offroad boots...

Thanks...

Thanks for all the replies. I sure wish I could spend $700 for a pair of mini-binoculars and go with the famous Leicas, but the budget just doesn't allow it and I can't find a way to write them off...

What's the best pair of compact binoculars?

I'm thinking it would be nice to have a pair of compact binoculars for moto trips. Anyone have a pair they adore (or hate)? By "compact" I mean roughly the size of the palm of an average guy's hand,...

A great read/watch, as always.

LB your ride reports never disappoint.
In fact, they just keep getting better.
Thanks for taking us all on the adventure with you--makes the time in between moto trips that much more bearable...

How many times did you crash when you first had a bicycle?

Hi there,

I won't give you technical advice about braking skills or ABS--I'll leave that to the more experienced riders among us (I've been riding for 3.5 years).

I will go out on a limb here,...

So Subscribed.

Watching the movies (yes, all three of them) was super meditative.
Loved the music choices, too.

If you are female and looking for offroad boots, you KNOW what a pain it can be to find the right ones. I tried a ton of the "high end" offroad boots, but had a heckuva time finding ones that fit me....
