Nice boots! Did your FlexForce boots shred your bikes finish? Mine took all of the paint off the frame and have worn the plastic down on the lower halves of the side panels. If I could do it over all again I would have bought a plastic gas tank and aftermarket set of plastics for off-road riding. I would have kept the stock barbed-wire stuff for road trips. Steve Yeah they rubbed the frame good, I just got it powder coated so there are no marks to speak of now. This time around I went and got works connection frame guards, I hope they protect it like they're supposed to!
