Desert boots ideal riding clobber.My name's Bond, moddy bollocks Bond.
He'd look better on a Lambretta dressed like that.
I suppose the boots offer more protection than his gloves or helmet...
not surprised it hasn't reached it's reserve,
Next time I'm thinking of buying some new shoes I'll come here for advice....
I thought erm HONDA had the contract for the Bong movie so that would make the montessa a fraud and so his shoes therefore cannot taken to be a true representation of a bond movie person and so it could all be a photoshop montage and he is actually having tea with the queen.........
SimoI didn't know Honda had the contract, but I know Honda own a large share (or all) of the Montesa name/factory and have since the early 80s. G
I dont think bond would have as much appeal dressed up in a full Hein Gerick textile body suit.....I'm sure he was just about to get balls deep into a fit bird moments before this, but noticed something with his MI5 training, and did a bunk....I think about it all the time - staring out the window in my suit - I could do a running jump out this window, jump on that bike, and tear away down the road.Alas - i'm not bond.The grim reality being the closest I would get to being entwined with such a woman would be attached with a legal prosecution, and being a tall lanky bumbling oik, i would probably lacerate myself to the point of bleed out or break my wrists and ankles jumping from the window....never the less I continue to harbor such thoughts, as i may one day mature into an Adonis; irresistible all women.
I have plenty of shoe advice. In the 70s i had a fine pair of brogues made by Church. The trouble was that you'd get a wear mark across the shoe where you changed gear. Happily i solved this by alternating between my Kawasaki H2C and my Bonneville. A simple but very satisfactory outcome.
Bong movie? Now you're are talking
Gear change marks on your brogues? Poor show old man, that's what hand changes are for.
Thanks Harley. I like that Sir!
I hope you didnt wear brogues with jeans... cant get on with that look at all. Too "history teacher" unless of course they are hunter s thompson style ankle high brogue boots. Then its okay.
Gareth i reckon you ought to go kitten heel.
The only jeans i wore around 1970/71 were Lee Jeans (with a half-inch tun-up. More expensive but superior to Levis) which were ideal with a nice oxblood Dr Martens boot. I often wore Levi cords (needle cords, never jumbo), although wearing them on a motorcycle did wear out the inner thighs very quickly. Oh, and ice blue Levi Sta-Prest were a disaster on a Bonneville.
There is not enough corduroy in the world.I was hoping world cords day (11th november last year) would spark a revival but unfortnately not.
I had to google it first to make sure what it was - don't think I'm brave enough for the Kitten Heel look yet but who knows what "Dirtquakesque" event next year will justify such foolish yet ssshhhexxy behaviour
I think i'll make a steel shoe for my Desert Boot.
