    So now the boots.

    Helmet, and Jacket are done. So times for boots. I'm not looking for anything Mad Max or Rossi just a good durable safe "real" riding boot that won't kill me if I have to walk a mile. Will be on road and not exactly doing any knee dragging just week end long 2 wheel therapy sessions. Any preferences? Anything to look out for? This is what I was concidering. https://www.leatherup.ca/p/Shop-Stre.../11488983.html
    If you can't pick it back up, don't ride it.

    I purchased these boots three years ago and it's been love from first meeting. BTW - at the time I spent 100 dollars for the same boot. The fit well, very comfortable and very tough...

    Revzilla usually has some great closeout deals on boots.

    I've got two sets of boots from Cycle Gear one sets vented (perforated) leather the other set has leather gortex and leather and race in them and street ride as well held up great for short $$. Sizing I a bit off so I'd suggest buy size up and go from there they have no hassle returns.

    Check out Boots :: MotorcycleGear.com . I bought a pair of TCX boots from them on closeout a couple years ago and have been very happy with them.

    TCX Boots are the best. First to have a CE certificate. Every pair of boots imported into the USA is CE certified. Many try to copy TCX.....but always miss the mark. You can't beat 40 years of excellence and experience in making boots.....plus the majority of the line is manufactured in their own plant in Europe.

    They just happen to be having a closeout sale on a cheaper model. Given the cost of the Bike, insurance, helmet, jacket, and pants, I'm up for a deal. Thanks.

    be aware of the mark. try one on and pull/the zips/seams etc at the local big dealership and then buy from a reputable online dealer of said "branded" boots online...... blah..... I've been drinking now.
