OK, so a motocross boot is a transfer of ski boot technology. That sounds like a pretty rigid armored boot. Does that mean you give up ankle flexibility in favor of protection? If you plan to get off the bike and hike a bit, this might not be a good compromise.
Private vehicles, guns and home schooling make the collectivists uneasy. They grant to the individual a degree of independence of action which terrifies the champions of the super state. They do not wish you freedom to move around, to protect yourself, to decide what your children should be taught. Such things reduce the power of the state over the citizen.
