    Just curious to know if there are any bikers around.

    Love bikes and planning to buy my first Harley as soon as my riders training education in a couple of weeks get done! Like the FatBoy but they say DeLuxe is better for my petit size...have plenty of time to choose and decide.

    Love Harley's way of life.:tongue:

    I've just got a 125cc Honda to get me around town at the moment. When I have the cash though I want to get a Goldwing and do some serious touring, around Europe, then maybe the States.

    I have a 980 cc's BMW Paris-Dakar, and have a girl friend who sometimes allows me to ride her Chopper, so I know a thing or two about machines. FatBoy or DeLuxe (my ass has seen both), you're up to some great cruising stuff there, babe!

    I suggest you get engineer boots, your size, and with 10" shafts. There's no use in being stingy about your equipment, good leather and material will save your ass when you grease on the asphalt ;-)

    For a starter, I'd not suggest to pick anything with heels, be it chunky or not, if you plan to ride, get shoes with good soles and flat heels. Of course, if you plan to ride as backseat bicht, you can roll out the heels.

    :eek: I suggest PROPER BIKE BOOTS to protect your ankles and shins. Most proper boots (Sidi, Dainese, Frank Thomas etc) come with an inbuilt brace system to stop your ankle bending too much and breaking. Never cut corners on your gear, it'll save your life! Leather jacket with armour (I'd probably be in a wheelchair now without it) and armoured trousers, jeans at least, though I have made a couple pairs fashionable with rips now! A full face hemlmet is a given, anyone who wears an open face/chinless helmet is asking to have their jaw lopped off when they take a tumble. Both the Harley's are good bikes, I'd go for the fatboy personally. Though I'm sticking with my beautiful R6 yum yum :rolleyes:

    I've gone biking with 11" engineer boots for all my life, and just sprained an ankle twice, but that's nothing I spill too much tears about, it can happen, and compared to other biking accidents it's really a minor incident. But I think in your case Funkalicious is right, if you're still new to it, try real biker boots. Just take care you don't buy cheap/dingy stuff, it won't serve you well!
