Hmmmm? Kinda looks that way to me. And I am grateful for the response from Down Under that gives this forum a global feel and keeps me from being as big a parochial puddin head as I moight be otherwise. There are a lot of 'pant cuff' stories that end in tip-over fail and other amusements. Bell bottom jeans were famous for sliding over kick starters, bitd. And recently, an instructor on a GW in a BRC tipped over when coming to a demo stop because his pant cuff hung up on his footpeg and wouldn't let his foot come to the ground. And there is one story of a rider tucking his pant cuff into a subsequently well buckled boot while his foot was on the peg so tightly that he fell over because his leg wouldn't straighten enough to make the save. But, I am really fackin old and used to get around a lot. So, such posts dredge up a lot of memories of the odd fun and frollics of bikin'. And we could move on to 'bootlace' stories when we get bored silly enough to need to do that?
