Thanks for that. I kept your awesome tip all to myself and won them! :)
We’ve all been told or experienced ourselves just how dangeous it is to ride a motorcycle. If you were in a major accident, would you ride again? What if you couldn’t use your legs?
At 15 years old, Darius Glover heard the doctors tell him, “you’ll never walk again and you’ll never ride again.” Regardless of losing the use of his legs from a motorcycle accident, he rides motocross again. He looked at that doctor and said, “you’re wrong.” If that doc doubted him, wow how wrong he was.
Darius went on to qualify for Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Motocross Championships in Florida- he traveled hundreds of miles and was turned down because of his “disability”.
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
