They crush very nicely in my saddlebags, unlike boots.I always keep a couple small trash bags and tiny bungee cords in my saddlebags incase I get caught ridin' in the rain.
And, if I don't have my rain gear packed in the saddlebags, I also always have a large trash bag to use as an impromptu rain jacket.
They all take up very little space and if ya ever get caught in the rain w/o rain gear, your mighty glad ya have them!!
I use to do that when I was a kid in New England during winter. It would help keep us dry as we played in the wet, heavy snow. However, clothing technology has come a long way since then and now I prefer Gortex lined boots to duct tape and plastic bags. Although I think that any use of duct tape as a fashionable statement is quite bold and provocative.I use walmart plastic bags with duct tape for my rain rides, did not like boots, very clumbsy.
Anybody else tried this??
It creates a few earry looks!! But waterproof shoes!!
Evidently they have never had a plastic bag blow on to their hot exaust, that clean up is one gosh awful job and then it may still look like crap...
I can't stand chrome on my bike, and with the price of a couple plastics bags being totally free (and available virtually anywhere, any time), the money not spent on something like those boot covers could get me many many more miles of happily riding in the rain, even with plain old plastic bags on my feet.
... but for now, I'll stick with my cheap as dirt dry foot protection system. :doh:
