Yo, new to ADVrider camp. Just found it today. Returning to riding after years away. I was born in the late 40s, so there. Have a Honda Shadow 600cc cruiser for getting back into it and practice, practice, practice. I don't intend any very long trips just yet and eventually would like to get a 'scoot with a side car for some serious touring with the dog. Just cruising the streets for now. I used to ride with just western boots but want more protection now. Not riding motocross either. I've looked at Sidi, Icon, and TourMaster on line. Already ruled out MC/Milwaukee storm-trooper 'fashion' stuff. Any opinions on high vs. low (but still covering ankles), and lace-up vs. moto style. Appreciate it.
