I’m stoked on my new Icon Airmada “Stack” lid and “Justice” gloves. Took ‘em out for a little while last night, so good.

Good news for someone with small feet! I picked up a pair of boots that match my vintage motocross boots everyone asks about! They’re marked 4 1/2 and judging by the comparison to my boots seem to be about a 6.5 or 7. 
If you want ‘em, they can be yours for $75. Update: SOLD! Stacy, a motolady in California, will be very happy with them.

He should really tie his shoelace, I mean come on that’s just obscene. 
Every now and again I have to post a photo for those who enjoy looking at men draped over motorcycles instead of women. ;) Photo from Made in Brazil Magazine (link).

Gear Review: Icon 1000 Elsinore Boots

What’s this? You’re looking at a fully bad ass, fully functional, fully protective and fully sexy pair of motorcycle boots. Quality is making a comeback.

That’s right, they’ve finally been created! No longer will the buckle clad, shit kicking, ass whooping motorcycle boots only exist in the golden years of motorcycling. I don’t know about you, but I think these are some sexy boots. Read on to find out more about my experience wearing them for five months, and all their fancy features!

As requested- more photos of the lovely Quebec located Louna Payette-Brisson and her Triumph Thruxton.

Retro MotoCross Boot Options

For all you guys who have been sending me messages/leaving comments asking about where I got my boots. You know, the vintage motocross boots I am wearing in all those Thruxton photos by Giles Clement. I did some discovery and found some awesome options.

First up are these vintage Hondaline motocross boots. The amazing part? They are nearly identical to the pair I have. Grey stripe up the back with red connector strap and all. But mine say Hondaline nowhere, perhaps a knock off? No idea. 

The thing with these is that from right now, there’s about 21 hours left on the ebay auction. So if you wear a size 9.5 mens US shoe, I’d hop on over and pick ‘em up. They’re only $61 USD right now. Hondaline Vintage MotoCross Boot Ebay Listing

Gear update: Icon Reign Boots
I feel it necessary to update on how the boots are fairing. I’ve had them just over a month, worn them 8 billion times, and taken them “off roading”. Okay but seriously, I’ve probably worn them 70% of the last month, on and off the bike. Plus yesterday they were worn gallumphing through mud on a trip into the woods to shoot some big guns. They did wonderfully.
These are still the most comfortable pair of shoes I own, and one of the most protective. My Puma Desmo boots are nice too, but no where near as comfortable, not as good looking, and way more expensive. 
After reading Sean Smith’s post on Hell for Leather, “His and Hers: Boots made for walking" I have to post a formal disagreement. (He will just looove me for this, I’m sure. …Hi Sean!) He says that unfortunately the boots are not very waterproof (he does mention that he had a pre-production pair) but I’ve found that to just not be true. 
The photo above is actually of my boots AFTER they had been hosed down to get the mud off. I clearly didn’t do that great of a job (and the mud was very thick) but under torrential downpour from a spigot, the feet inside were kept toasty and dry. 
I also have chosen to take them puddle stomping as I tend to do, and besides a rooster tail of water shooting up into my crotch, I was as dry as the Sahara desert.
For $160 bucks I really can’t recommend these boots enough. Stay tuned for an update on how they do in an epic kung-fu battle, as Sean from HFL is in Portland right now and will undoubtedly challenge me to a Hipster-duel.
