You should be wearing them because they're safer, not because you can't wear trainers for your CBT :rolleyes:

You heard of Google or local motorbike shops?

Come on pal, initiative lol.

You wish you were wearing boots if you fall off and grind your ankle bone.

Or just break your foot.

Ankles get hurt very easily because of the funny bit that sticks out. You lose a strip of skin and it hurts like hell for a couple of weeks. They get sprained as well without proper support, and wet feet are not nice to have either. Good boots are almost as important as a good helmet.

At this time of year boots are really cheap if you look for your local dealer's end of season sale. Last year I bought a pair of Gore-Tex Oxtars at end of season and because they still carry the Oxtar brand (it's changed to TCX) for 80.00. The cheapest price I could find on the net for the same boot was 179.00.

BTW - I stripped the skin off an ankle on a twist and go (it was a 500 though) at zero speed when a dog ran out in heavy rain. I'd left the boots off because I was only riding about 500 yards for petrol. It completely ruined a holiday because of the pain and because I couldn't walk properly. Wear boots even on a 'ped.

You won't wear those again if you fall off and hurt your feet.

If you can ride again that is.

The show is 15 to get in, you will save more than that money wise in the discount you will get at the show.
