Looks like most you guys wear some kind of boots for the street. do you carry another pair of shoes with you? I ask cause i do not want to be a squid and just wear tennis shoes while riding but i an not going to work in riding boots. Whats a good boot for the street that i could wear all day? thanks

Brock, the FT stuff is nice, but very thick. You can prob get it for under $300. I have the one pc (strike I think?) and have no complaints. Haven't crash tested it yet though. AGV makes some nice stuff in the 300-500 range as well.

As far as shoes/boots, I wouldn't wear anything without ankle protection. Both for impact and abrasion. Think about what would happen if you lowsided and your leg was under the bike. Eeeew! Just carry a backpack with a spare pair of shoes if you're worried about fashion.
