“Should I Wear Boots on a Motorcycle?”
No. You should wear boots on your feet. Wearing them “on” a motorcycle, as shown in this photo, is so awkward and uncomfortable. Sure, your boots will get noticed, but your body bumping along on the ground can really be a pain when the bike is put into motion!
‘nuf said. Don’t be stupid. Remember this: boots are for your feet and to wear on them while operating a motorcycle; sneakers are for the gym; flip-flops are for the trash.
Life is short: wear boots when operating a motorcycle.
