post #3886 of 4526
Keep thinking about the early 80s R65...

but of course now I never even see a single one for sale...and nothing like the one I posted here a while back (which admittedly was a couple hours away, but it looked nice, had a low miles/good price and came with the side cases).

Edit: something like this:


Bars might be a little high for me, and I might want some less blocky turn signals...but there's not much else I would need to change.
Throw on the hard-case saddlebags when needed...should have enough power that I might actually consider making some longer rides on it once or twice a year.

I've been riding to work this week but it's supposed to drop to subzero temperatures this weekend and stay that way for the rest of next week.

It might be time frown.gif

There are others in this thread somewhere. That is the only one I have with it covered in snow though.

Any ideas for simple black leather riding boots? Would something like these offer any kind of protection?

They are steel toe for whatever that's worth.

I assume you're not looking for technical boots. If not, then Gasolina would be your best bet.

Also, RideApart reviewed the Aerostich ones this morning: http://rideapart.com/2013/11/aerostich-combat-touring-boots-review/

I like Chippewa if that's your style. For steel toe, I'm not a big fan, couldn't feel the lever when shifting gear.

This is the year I'm going to make it all the way thru winter!

I think that most years, but it usually turns out I either don't have the gear or don't have the guts. smile.gif I rode to see Thor and that was a mess - pouring rain when I got out, I got home soaked, cold, and had a couple of small slides because the tires couldn't warm up. To really do this properly, I need to go ahead and get a CL450 with knobbies on.

Those Cocorans look good. Seems like they'd be kind of a pain to get on and off though. I want something I can just zip in and out of like a race boot w/o the goofy track only looks (and sole I'm guessing).

Icon Elsinore boots are pretty solid. They offer real protection too.

Gah, too ornate.
