I'm about to be a new rider (used bike under a cover out back, BCSC booked for Feb. 28th) and I'm in the process of getting geared up. I've checked out jackets, helmets, gloves, pants, all great.
My question is footwear... what do you guys use? What I've seen in shops looks like it's either racing footwear or classic leather motorcycle boots, and nothing in between.
The classic leather look more like they're good for cruisers. How are they on sport bikes, with the different footpeg positions? Is flexibility an issue? I have some Cat steel toe boots, but I imagine that steel toes aren't great for riding. Is this true?
I'll probably be doing both city and highway riding. Any advice would be appreciated. TIA for any thoughts.
