Thanks, Willie G...

When one rides a motorcycle, it's important to wear
gear that is functional and practical.
I never ride in shorts or tank tops.
I wear my leather jacket and chaps
on long trips or for highway riding.
I always ride wearing a helmet,
I wear boots that are made specifically
for motorcycle riding...boots that
have the proper sole for contact with pavement
and offer more ankle and foot protection.

They're called "Rider's Boots",
as opposed to "After Riding Boots",
which are lighter weight and do not offer
the same level of riding protection.
(Ok...End of Lesson in Motorcycle Boots 101.)

The first photograph was my very first pair of Riders Boots.
These are the boots I've been wearing lately.
A little "fancier", but still military in appearance.
Sturdy and strong, but certainly not very "girly"...
...until yesterday.
Handsome and I went to our local Harley dealership
and my eyes settled these beauties.
And then I saw a tag on 'em that made me gasp...
"Rider's Boots"!!!
Finally, Willie G. and the gang at Harley have
created a boot that not only have that safe rider's sole,
but will make the boys take a second look
when a female rider wears them!
Because, let's face it girlfriends...
Even grandmas like to look smokin' sexy every now and then!
Thanks, Willie G.!

Those are some sexy boots for sure! There is no law about us older women not being sexy. I think we're much sexier than younger girls any day!

Lisa Leggett said...

Wowee Donna, meow! Quite schmexy if I do say so myself!

It's funny too, I just wrote a blog about safe riding gear and my new boots a couple of days ago! Different kind of "hog" though, heehee, you'll have to come check it out when you have a moment.

I adore Paulette's suprise! I can't think of any one sweeter :o)
Have a great day!

I told my daughter about the boots. She said they would be cool if she was only going to be a passenger, but she didn't think that she would be comfortable riding by herself. They are getting ready to go for a trip on the bikes, but she isn't sure if she is riding her bike or just going to be a passenger. I love reading your post today. Have a wonderful day. Your Missouri Friend.

Donna S. said...

Very hot but this grandma just can't do heels anymore.

The Paper Princess said...

Those are awesome Donna - who'd have thought that "grandma" would be sporting the hottest "biker babe boots" in town!

I think they need to feature you in a new ad campaign called "the changing face of Harley"! :-)


Cat said...

Hi! Nice to meet you thru Paulette!
She has told me about you as well!

You have an adorable blog.

And yes, very classy biker boots! Mine look much like your first picture but narrower with a more point to the toe. I don't think I could handle heels... they'd make me over 6 feet tall to start!

Happy riding! Summer is on the way!

Smiles, Cat
