Dodging the Roadkill: Boots

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I seem to be able to find inspiration for my posts in the most unlikely places sometimes. 

Today as I was taking off my boots from an afternoon ride, I looked at them and thought, “these things have supported me for a lot of miles.  Oh the stories they could tell.”

While I DID buy a new pair of boots last year, I just keep putting on the old ones because they just feel better and as superstitious as I am, I don’t make many changes in my riding style.  

They’ve been with me since the beginning.  We’ve been together a long time. I couldn’t possibly throw them out.
