i noticed too that he's on a 690e (what happened to the 950?), dang, a bunch of girlie riders....



+1 on what mike said...get a good pair of mx boots. i have the sidi disco, very comfy but it didn't save my left ankle from getting pinched. so the next day, bought a better design boots. it's stiff and feel akward, but tonight i walked around the block in it, dark enough no one saw me looking stupid... and i will continue breaking them for the next several nights... maybe i'll put on my acerbis pressure suit, knee brace and xd helmet to do a pre-halloween trick and trick.....

good idea, but i don't want to slip in the bathtub and taken to the emergency ward with my boots on.....bwahahaha

here's what i'll do, i'll spray the outside with hot water and put them in the sun. spray some more and leave it in the sun until it's warm. maybe use a hair dryer to speed up the heating process. once the boots are almost too hot to touch, will put them on, then i'll walk around the block several times in broad daylight.....

They make leather softeners but the main ingredient is alcohol. Use 70% rubbing alcohol. You can wrap a saturated rag around the area to soften and/or shove a rag inside. Stick the boots in a plastic bag overnight. Put them on in the morning and they will stretch/soften/dry in the right places.

thanks mt, easy enough for me, but definitely will not work for dunerat, luv2race, cribaby and rob cuz they will not let that alcohol go to waste......

I have a motion pro 24 MM aluminum axle wrench/ tire lever WITH the socket adapter that I no longer need. (It was for the BMW and doesn't fit the Husky) I was going to list in the classifieds but if any of you FF's want it I thought I'd give you first dibs. Asking $25 Shipped.

+1 on tt's method, the hot water softens the leather and heats the plastic, when they cool and dry it re-forms to your foots shapes

The idea is the boot has to be hoot and wet for work

I was thinking about do a ride one of the days next weekend (labor day weekend) but the temps have me a little scared. (it's f-ing hot today) Maybe we should try a Late night ride up in that area? Start at like 10/11:pm ride up the front side up to Big bear for(7:am) breakfast down to Arrowhead jump in the lake? head for home around 10: 11 am?
any interest?
Sito +1 on a labor day weekend for me, it will be my 1st ride since the crash and a great re-hab opp also.

I posted up early but with no resposes.http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10712401&postcount=8580

I'm willing to modify my plan in order to ride that weekend

Let me know

Sat, Sept 5th works best for me.
