    Been looking at these for awhile and wondering if they would be good or shit, used to just wear steel blue work boots for riding, then moved to hiking boots, last ones were HiTech, good boot, wore them everywhere, actually still have them but wanted ankle stability, anyway the Sharks were on special so I took a punt, had them for a few weeks now, had to move my shifter lever up a notch on the spline and relearn the feel but now I'm used to them I like them, can relax the feet and legs and the boots take the weight, can wear them all day without pain, the jeans hide most of them, good boot I reckon.HD Forums Australia - IMG_20190814_174502.jpg

    They look solid Hilly.

    I'm still sporting some FXRG things from HD that I got second hand five years back. Solid, waterproof and comfortable to walk in. Good combo. 

    HD's latest caught my eye but would want to see them in the flesh. Glad they have a good Vibram sole on them:

    Lie you Hilly just replaced my old hiking boots with a Rjays boot . So much harder to walk in and being shorter boot my jeans end up above the boot! Not loving my purchase yet

    Yep but lack the "feeling" of the other boots

    Ha Ha guess its for older bikes as well with rt hand gear change, or you could sit on the tank and change gears perhaps
