post #4231 of 4779

@BostonHedonist - re-reading my post, it came across as quite preachy. That wasn't the intention - my apologies. I'm actually a big believer in everyone assessing their own risks, and choosing whatever gear you like. IE, we're all big boys and girls and can make up our own minds.

 

A cousin of mine had boots very similar to the Dainese Latitor ones shown above - they were stealthy enough for him to wear with business-casual clothes in his job as an IT Manager. He had race-style boots, but got sick of always having to carry a second pair of shoes everywhere. The soles on the ones he had were reasonably flexible too, which is important if you want to actually walk around in them. I can't remember exactly what his were, but they were that same style.

 

And since this is a thread about bikes, I feel compelled to post a pic of the old rocket ship before we sold her:

 

 

Cheers,

Matt

Pretty cool looking. How many bowls of rice (daily wage) do you think Nike has to pay the manufacturing staff per unit?

You are too kind.

So I was just in L.A. and had to...

 

 

 

AppleMark

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"How much is that Mickey Rourke's bike in the winnnn-doooowww.."

 

 

In case anyone ever wondered what the RSD shop is like...

I didn't even know RSD had a store....

Did you swing by Deus as well?

I knew that would get your attention. It's a store attached to their shop, where all the magic happens. And no, they don't give tours of the shop. =/

 

I drove past Deus when meeting my friend at Venice Beach on my way back to the airport, but didn't have time to pop in.

Alright, nother question for you commuters.

I take a duffle with my gym clothes and lunch into work everyday, it's probably about 3 feet long and a foot wide, and weighs ~12lbs. what would be the safest way of strapping this thing to a bike?

or rather, if that sounds stupid. whats the best option in regards to carrying a bag on a bike?

At the moment i'm not ruling anything out, want to figure out all my options then decide what I feel is best for me.

A back pack seems like the obvious solution.

A cargo net should work too...although if it is one solid bag, you could probably just use a couple bungee cords instead of a whole net (assuming you can tuck the straps/handles in somewhere). I have carried a fairly large pack, completely stuffed full, on the back of my seat using a cargo net and it seemed to work fine.

Backpack would completely ruin my swag though.. (joking, but also serious)

As far as bungee cords go, I can just put the bag on the seat behind me, and strap it up? That would be safe?

yeah as long as it's secure, but in general, it doesn't have to be a moto book bag, there are tons of dope bags out there.
