Cool! That extra height would make flatfooting my 1100GS a real possibility. Guys, how about setting up a link to a good place to buy 'em?

I have worn a pair of the M-Star (size 42) boots for several months, and I think they are great. I ride a 2002 BMW R1150Gs, probably one of the tallest street bikes around. After spending $1400 on adjustable shocks to get the bike about 1.5" lower, I still found that I was tiptoeing, better because now most of the balls of my feet were touching. I saw an ad for the M-Stars, bought a pair and the first time I got on the bike, I could actually "flatfoot" the monster. This does wonders for my confidence.At age 58, I just didn't have the leverage and power to stop a tipover. Now I can comfortably get both feet down on the ground. The boots are comfortable, waterproof and are easy to get on and off. For anyone who needs an extra 1 1/2 to 2" of "leg" the M- Stars are just the ticket.

Aww, I was sure with you guys doing a story about chick's boots you wouldn't be able to pass up the opportunity to grab a few more subscriber by placing those boots on a scantily clad lass. And what do we get instead? Just some boots and a bad skirt. At least the pose is suggestive enough to give the imagination something to work with.



Ah, it's been a long week.



(Now off to read about the damn boots. )

Real nice boots. I'd like to get a pair for a friend of mine as an Xmas gift.

Any idea where they can be purchased?

The only thing missing from this is the admission from the diminutive Johnny B that he is the actual author of the article. No? Hmm... maybe he should try the boots anyway?



Nyah, nyah!

Hell, I would've settled for a picture of the chick who wrote the review!

Default Search for the Blue Poof

Carolyn actually has her own blog and mailing list so finding her isn't much of a challenge. I actually kind of respect that they didn't let this one devolve into a cheap excuse to show scantily clad women. Would have been hard to share the article with my wife. And she could use these boots.



Of course, there's nothing wrong with the occasional "babe shot". Just the whole right place and time thing. As I recall, a certain author wrote about having Nicky H. for a tool boy so she can't object to such suggestions.

Found the website for the importer. They sell direct or they have a lising for authorized dealers. Hope this helps.
