Yikes.



If those boots don't sell to motorcyclists, then Harley could unload them on the KISS army.

It's awfully nice that these boots have oil-resistant soles to prevent you from slipping in the stoplight goo, since most of it is probably coming from the very Harley you're riding. And the very cushy interior for walking allows you to walk around the dealership while you're getting your oil changed, or while you're out shopping with the other flamers. That's so convenient of The Motor Company to take into account the ways these boots will be used. And I guess I'll just not worry about why Harley makes their boots a size too big. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the riders wanting to make their *ahem* feet look bigger...





Would I wear them? Absolutely not. I prefer the Power Ranger look of my Alpinestars, but to each his own.

What amuses me most when I see products like this is seeing the phrase "the Motor Company" juxtaposed with with them. Let's display some intellectual honesty here: Harley Davidson is the MARKETING Company. In this case, apparently targeted marketing aimed at the "alternative" lifestyle segment.

Damnit. I've owned Harleys for 13 years now. First one was a 1969 sporty. Every time the "motor" co. puts out something like this it makes it harder to ride one. It's hard to feel like you're riding a real bike when they send you a friggin clothing catalog every month, but haven't come out with a decent air cleaner for the new sporties two years after they were introduced.

Yup, sort of Village People-retro. Just what I would expect from a "lifestyle" sales organization.

This is just the thing! As long as you are wearing a fullface helmet with dark faceshield.



Sean should model this stuff on one of those rigid choppers he likes so much.

I think the boots and the sleeves look pretty cool, the back is over the top though...

Would I wear them..probably not, but I did have a pair of flamed Converse Allstars that I wore out
