    What boots do you ride in?

    Thank you. I was just looking at some boots similar to these. They resemble the boots the Highway Patrol wear. I went down a few years ago and shaved down my ankle bone pretty good. I am a little subjective about foot and ankle protection than I used to be. Right now I wear Joe Rockets Big Bang boots and they are comfortable for riding but extremely heavy for hiking.
  2. Just finished Installing a surprise Christmas present! My wife had forgotten she bought me a Cortech 18Liter strap mount tank bag. Earlier tonight she found it in the closet while putting away clothes. Funny thing... I asked for the tank bag last year? I wonder how long it has been stashed away? 🤔 I should probably hunt around for that GoPro 4 I asked for 2 Christmas's ago...

    What boots do you ride in?

    I am looking for a good pair of motorcycle boots that double as hiking boots. Does anyone have advice for either a good hiking boot that has a strong enough shank for riding or a good motorcycle boot that is comfortable to hike in? It would be nice to not have to change boots when we find hiking spots along rides. Any advice or suggestions would be grateful.

    I can relate with the depleted bank account. Just sold off all our Offroad toys due to lack of use and overall expense. I need a better key ring. I have the factory thin metal tag. It gets stuck all the time and is difficult to remove with gloves.

    Nice! It looks really good on your bike! I really like the attention to detail on the seat too. (Nice key chain🤣)

  8. No problem. It is some abstract polygonal art. I like it because it is a free form contemporary background and you see it being used a lot as a texture in print and video. Kind of has an illusion of 3-D mapping or topographical landscapes.

    Same here. Was seriously considering one... unfortunately did not fit into the budget... yet😀
  10. Yes, the size did change to compensate for larger screens. Also, working on the banner for the dark theme. I appreciate the positive feedback!
  11. I've got the cheap property, light traffic, people are decent, and twisty roads in every direction. But the weather ain't perfect... 4 out of 6 is not bad... what is the job market/ economy like?
  12. Sorry. That sucks when you have to stop riding to work. We have been debating leaving SoCal. One concern I have is the length of riding seasons elsewhere... Not that I'm a "fairweather" rider... but I am not fond of 120º temps nor sub40º.. there has got to be a magical place somewhere with perfect weather year round, where people are nice and traffic is light, where property is cheap, where money grows on trees, and every road is twisty... Anyone know of a place that fits that description?
  13. Had to run up to Riverside from Temecula today. The lane splitting was a little soggy and more exciting than usual. I bet it was. Probably a sketchy around the 60 and 215! Seems they did not design that interchange for rain. Just sits on the freeway with nowhere to go. Just deep puddles and confused drivers because they can't see the lanes.
  14. Here in Southern California, it has not cooled down much. Last night was the first rain we have had in a very long time. Still using the A/C at night to help sleep. We went for a ride last weekend to Newcombs Ranch down Angeles Crest Highway and it was actually cooler weather at that elevation. Kind of looked like a time-lapse video of the clouds as they poured over Mount Baldy. Very nice ride. Have a feeling this weather will not last much longer. Some friends in Hawaii were saying they are experiencing some cold water tides, which in the past seems to reflect the Pacific coast getting hit with lots of rain and snow in the higher elevations... I guess time will tell. For now, going to enjoy every day we get to ride until the first snow up at Mountain High... then out come the Snowboards and Skis!
