8. If those two boots don't excite you then how about some Streetburners? The Sidi Streetburner ankle boots are a truly original piece of design and allow the rider maximum movement. Their buckle system allows a glove like fit and, although they give you extra freedom, these boots still maintain the protection of their bigger brothers.
9. Bikers often complain that they've got nowhere to put their belongings but we have found the answer.
