As I was at the stoplight this morning on the way to work a dude on a KTM supermoto went past en route to the highway on ramp.
Close behind him was somebody on a Honda Rebel (I think). So what, right?
Well, the supermoto dude throws the old foot out to hit the corner, but he's wearing white Nike running shoes. They were as plain as day and looked utterly ridiculous. I mean, what was he gonna do if he tucked the front a little and had to foot dab—besides break his foot?
He wasn't going fast enough to require weighting the front end with his outstretched, tennis-shoed foot, and the person on the cruiser was hot on his rear wheel anyways.
It was funny—and sort of sad—all at once. The point? Don't wear tennis shoes on your bike. Moreover, don't stick your tennis shoe out when you're going around a corner.
