Melbourne – Settling in: These boots are made for ridin’
I arrived to Melbourne to my temporary accommodation in time for the start of the weekend. Which meant that the Spanish consulate was shut, however all the motorbike shops were open 🙂 Since living in Qld we do not have the full range of motorbike gear available to us, this meant one thing – shopping! More to the point… motorbike gear shopping!! Yaaaassss. First things first. Boots were on my list.
My poor RSTs were no longer water proof and after 3 faithful years, 2 stacks, countless day trips and even more kilometres under their souls, it’s time to retire them. They have definitely seem better days. They kind of reflected how I felt. Battered, weathered, cracked, shabby and tired looking. So I made an appointment and I went shopping for the best boots I’ve ever had – the Daytona Lady Pilot Gore-tex boots.
What a difference! What luxury. Again, this was another metaphor for a new beginning for me 🙂 Bring on dry, toasty tootsies!! (They better be since I had to donate a kidney for these boots!).
