spent Valentines day down in the states looking for some riding gear for the G/F
boots and pants were what we were after, sizes have to be special ordered up here
down to Cycle Barn
missed the pants by a size so that didn't work out but looking at boots found a pair of alpinestars supertech... had a regular price of 399.00 on sale for 199.00 a little more boot than she would need, so looked at some others
after trying on the supertech's though she said they were the most comfortable.. the sale was only on this particular boot size... just happened to fit the G/F perfectly
asked if there was any further reduction in price, the girl said she'd talk to the manager...
129.00 Sold yessssssss
best part was at the border... had a stint of honesty and told the border guard we bought a pair of M/C boots... he said just take this slip of paper into the office... grrrrrrr
walked in with our reciept (I was still ahead with the price) Border guard says ...what did you purchase... M/C boots 140.00 with tax... ok thanks guys have a nice day ...
1)There are some nice one's out there ... 2)or he thought I was crazy claiming it and didn't have the heart to charge us duty... 3) or pays to just be honest... 4)or M/C boots don't have duty ??
all in all good valentines day present for the G/F
