Second post, same dude. I liked the review, but I have to recommend some improved editing. If you want to be a professional magazine, you need to sound like one.
See, e.g., "Maura Thompson, of the Motor Clothes division of Harley-Davidson was nice enough to offer Jen and I some gear to wear for the trip, and of course, we accepted graciously;" "It fits good and has plenty of padding and comfort."
Yikes! Do you want to hire me? I'll edit for money and even test ride the bikes for free!
Motor clothes? Road gear? give me a break. Made in China, over priced, more like poser gear. I understand that "motor clothes" account for 25% of H-D's sales. I guess it's great if your a stockholder. I would'nt be caught dead in any of it. Great marketing though. Each to thier own I guess. I think I'll go for a ride now. Adios
I rode across the Korean peninsula recently during a typhoon. It was early morning, I was hung over, and it was a horrible ride: rain, fog, mountain passes, nasty curves with gravel and mud wash, a rising sun in my eyes, very cold, etc.
To keep my boots and pant cuffs dry, I ended up using plastic grocery bags with rubber straps and duct tape around my calves. It worked wonders.
So though the ride was horrible, wet feet would have made it impossible.
These boot covers are the first, and so far only, Harley-Davidson product I've seen that are of any use. I will order myself a pair.
There used to be a gang of lesbian bikers in the Hollywood area. They all sported butch haircuts, T-shirts, chains, etc. and rode black stock DOHC Honda CB750Fs. I never remember seeing them with ciggies. However I wouldn't have the guts to call them poseurs to their faces. I'd rather face a gang of Hell's Angels.
Well, facing Hell's Angels might not be that bad these days. They seem to be largely old decrepit burned-out guys who have taken so many drugs for so long that they can't even ride any more.
Be interested to hear more about riding in Korea. I served over there a long time ago and one of the dreams I have is to see the place again, this time on a motorcycle. It would definitely have to be in the spring or summer, though. Their winters are like the northeastern US or Canada.
