I'll pass, but I know a co-worker who keeps making noise about getting an electriic motorcycle that would probably be all over these. 

In fact, I just forwarded it to him and he seemed okay with them except he's not sure there's enough protection there to shift.  He seems to think it takes a lot of force to shift.

I actually test rode a Zero electric motorcycle and it was pretty cool. I would never buy one, but entered a drawing with the hopes of winning it at a particular dealer - I didn't  :-\. Interesting thing about it, though, was there was no shifter....one gear from 0 to 85 mph or so. Kinda like a two wheeled golf cart on steroids.

Be kinda cool to have an electric dual purpose dirt bike. For when another bad hurricane comes around ;D ;D . Hook it up to my wall and let her charge. While ever one else is in line.  Thats if my pannels would be able to handle the extra battery that is.
Some prefer medicine. I prefer my Raider.

I actually see sandles/flip flops and shorts quite often in AZ. I always wear long pants, boots and full gear.
. I have worn shorts before, just not on the hi-way. I know I shouldnt!!!

Hahaha.  Love that they protect the toe for shifting but what if you go down idiot?!?!?!  Let that foot slide along the pavement and let's see how smart these really are.

Considering what my boots looked like when I did go down, I'm right with you.
But skin grafts and extensive rehab are such a small price to pay for having cool and comfy feet!  :o

If you're going to wear sandals, you need to dress the part...

You need to look at those riding boots, I was wearing leather shoes when I had my accident in 05, my right ankle looked like raw hamburger on the outside.  As I said, I will not get on a bike without boots on.

I may have been kidding myself then thinking i was safer . I havent really looked into them . You know a brand that is good and size 12 or 13s too.

Pfft.  Guilty as a mofo  :rolleyes: :nerd:

But in my defense, Texas said I could after taking the Advanced ERC


This is my shield. I bear it before me into battle, but it is not mine alone. It protects my brother on my left. It protects my city. I will never let my brother out of its shadow nor my city out of its shelter. I will die with my shield before me facing the enemy.

  I know I'll take a lot of flak for this but my usual riding attire is shorts, a t-shirt and sneakers. Sunglasses but no helmet.
