I never even wore riding boots until last year, I'd go in hiking boots or worse but once I started riding ADV rides I got shamed into it. Its a good thing now every time I hit my foot or shin I think how bad would that have been w/o the boots, there a real confidence builder and I crash a lot. I hear the SIDI boots are the best.

Thanks Tim, I'll check Irv Seaver and the other BMW dealers.

I'm looking for some boots that have more protection than my low end offroad boots and are still reasonable for touring and comfortable. So far these boots are reported to be just that. I have to replace my street boots anyway, could use some waterproof boots, and could use some more ankle protection and comfort than what I currently have in my Oneil Element offroad boot. I'm already looking at $150-300 for street boots with ankle protection anyway, so $375 does not sound too bad if I can use them for both touring on-road and off road.

I like the way you reason, though I've tried it many times with my girlfriend: "I could really use a [insert something expensive here]". It never works.

Those are the exact boots I'm looking at as well. I think I'm pretty good with Sidi's sizing but wouldn't mind putting on a pair as well, just to make sure.

Me too and these and the TCX Infinities are on my consideration list. I've had my Alpinestars SMX boots forever and they're starting to show their age.

Now this is a man's BBQ!!!!


BBQ RULES
We'll be entering the BBQ season in a few months . Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity .

When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:

Routine...

(1) The woman goes and buys the food.... and the beer!.... while he fires up the BBQ.
(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.
(4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman.

Here comes the important part:
(5) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.... duh!

More routine...
(6) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
(7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat.

Important again:
(8) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.

More routine...
(9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.

(10) After eating, the woman brings him another beer and then clears the table and does the dishes.

And most important of all:
(11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.

(12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed 'her night off ' and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women!

When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:

Routine...

(1) The woman goes and buys the food.... and the beer!.... while he fires up the BBQ. Only a man knows a good slice of meat, so I do it.
(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand. The man prepares the meat as only he knows how to do, the woman can simply bring beer after beer
(4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman. Three meters is to much space between me and her. I can't grab her ass, and she can't hand me a beer.

Here comes the important part:
(5) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.... duh! Agreed

More routine...
(6) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery. Agreed
(7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat. The man comments on how nice her daisy dukes look on her

Important again:
(8) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN. Agreed

More routine...
(9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table. Agreed

(10) After eating, the woman brings him another beer and then clears the table and does the dishes. Agreed

I'm sorry, but I have my own rendition of the BBQ.
