Default Not bad...

Not a bad looking shoe. Nice that it offers some features specific to motorcyclists, while not looking like "moon boots".

No matter, not one cent of mine will ever go to support or promote stunting of street bikes. Not even their shoes will go on my feet. I would have all articles and threads on stunting banned if I weren't dedicated to free speech. I have enough on my conscience without adding that "sport" to it.

Seriously, are you trolling? I don't have a problem with stunting, as long as it's done in a controlled environment and not on the open roads. To me, stunting is a progression of the old-school trials riding.

No I'm not trolling. Stunters DON'T stay off the highways and you know it. And it bears absolultely no relation to trials. Because of these guys we face arrest in many States for a mere accidental wheelie.

True enough. When I was a skater kid, kids were getting jacked up from skating in public places. There were no skate parks. Now there are many skate parks where kids can ride safely and not be a nuisance.

Dr Pulley, you aren't suggesting that the cities are going to build "stunting parks" for stunters? LOL! "Let's set aside 10 sq miles of city land for stunters." That'd go over well.

Accidental wheelies? No such thing. At least, there shouldn't be. Not on the street, anyway.

Stunting parks sounds like a great idea to me. Eventually there'll be a few of them. They actually have one in France where guys stunt with MV Augustas (saw that on Super Bikes!).

And any yahoo who wheelies or stunts in traffic should get his bike confiscated.
