Thanks for the feedback! I think your comments about the short boots for safety are good points. I probably should have mentioned that the purpose of the short boots was for in town messing around, going to work, and "oops, got caught in the rain" type of riding. I think for trips (street/dirt) the full boot would probably be best.
BTD - I saw those today online and they seemed the best of the short ones.
Now, if I can just get my dollars together to get my bike! :biggrin5:
