I use this stuff. http://www.amazon.com/Obenaufs-Silicone-Water-Shield-Environmentally/dp/B002UBLSO4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1444294274&sr=8-1&keywords=obenaufs+leather+suede+spray
Can be used on all types of leather/suede and it's not pressurized, so you don't use the whole thing up on one or two pairs of shoes.
CP only seems to call it "Napa" leather. Which is as descriptive as "red" is for wine. I've heard that it's "French calfskin," which is unconfirmed. Some suspect corrected grain. Personally I think it feels like calf-lined top grain. Definitely not full grain though, it's just not thick enough. Compare to 1ks or a Saddleback product to see the weight of full grain.
But you wouldn't want lined, full grain sneakers. That would be too thick IMO.
FZ09 is just not the bike the Street Triple is. Not that it's a bad bike. But there are little problems with it, like the garbage suspensions and choppy power delivery.
With the street triple, you just don't need to change anything.
We'll, unless you want to wheelie. Then you might want to drop a tooth on the rear sprocket.
So the tournament lows, that's what I got. the difference between those and "original" Achilles is the lack of topline padding, right?
These have not been pleasant to break in. But today was the first day they started getting comfortable. I'm seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Glad I sized down and avoided the clown-shoes effect.
Hmmm. On the 9th we leave for Thailand for three weeks. Tomorrow Mrs. Hedonist has to fly to Japan for business until the 8th.
Thinking to hop a Saturday morning flight to Glasgow for a few days. Yay or nay? I reeeeally should get some work done...
