I received two packages last night. One contained my new armoured ride pants, and the other, my new armoured ride boots. both paris fit perfectly and provide much better protection than what I was previously riding with.
Now, with the rains gone from the SoCal area, I was able to ride into work today with my new gear. So I kitted up this morning and started my bike to let it warm up a bit (after all it IS still a bit cold here). Got my helmet and gloves on and then I was off in comfort and security…
About halfway to work, I realize I forgot one vital thing: my normal shoes for when I get to work and take my gear off.
So here I sit, in jeans and a sweater, with power-ranger looking armoured boots on. AND I have meetings today, so I can’t just sit in my cube and hope no one notices. Ugh. At least I have this chance to break them in, which is a plus.
I think I’m going to bring a pair of shoes and leave them at work so this doesn’t happen again.
