Question shoes?

i need info from the sport bike guys.... i'm a member of Vindicta (V-rod group), a guy i work with just got a hold of a 2001 CBR 929 and wants me to take it out Wednesday night to blow the dust out of the pipes for him (he doesn't know how to ride) any ways, all the gear i have is for my night rod and my main concern is shoes, normally i wear my steel toe boots on the Night Rod,

i'm worried that if i wear the boots i might have problems with shifting, so i'm debating on wearing my "gym" shoes, i need feed back.... thanks ev1

Yup, I have Dr. Martens steeltoe workboots and they shift just fine.
Stick to boots for sure. Over the ankle footwear is a minimum.

If you can manage to pull them off without untying, zipping or whatever. The road can too, easily and that would suck. As for impact resistance, well you can pretty much tell by looking.

If your buddy wants to sell it, tell him to put it on craigslist.
If he wants to sell it here, he needs to join and create a for sale thread himself.

And the boots should be fine. Tennis shoes will be cold tonight anyways. . .
