new boots - great supplier!

The last Snowy Ride preparations uncovered my dear old (6-7 years'ish) Aussie made Rossi motorcycle boots starting to split at the seam where the sole meets the boot.
Having been extremely happy with the Rossi's... I also wear their steel-cap work boots as summer riding boots... I wanted a new pair the same.

Searching all the sales offers around time of the Sydney Motorcycle Show found a "generous" discount of 10% off the RRP of about $270-$280 on the 811 Vision boot, or about $240-$250 + shipping. No motorcycle store (even MCAS's specials) would better that price.

Being the online shopping scrooge I am... kept hunting and found an online company called "Everything Australian " that had the exact same boots for........ $183.95 +GST, or $202.35, plus $11.95 shipping!

So for $215, Mrs Santa has got my Chrissie pressy waiting... and I get to keep warm dry toes next winter.

Thanks Mrs Santa!

Re: new boots - great supplier!

Yep Chris, I agree, I've got 2 pairs of the 811 Visions, 1 normal length and 1 shorter pair. Made in Adelaide, give the good Aussie product a run I reckon. They're not flashy, just really comfortable and quick to put on & off with a nice grippy sole (possibly the most important feature for steadying the K12). I've recommended them to some of my mates, even a couple of HD riders.
