A tale of two Sidis

I was in the market for waterproof motorcycle boots after almost drowning on the return leg of my trip in September. It took almost a week for my boots to dry out, and even then they were still damp when I wore them for the first time. As usual, I turned to NewEnough for motorcycle […]
