This thread is not strictly on-topic, but seeing as I am a lover of all things with two wheels, both human-powered and petrol-powered, I hope you'll forgive me
I recently bought a 125cc scooter because it is is fun to ride and has fantastic fuel economy and a tiny little carbon footprint; I hardly ever drive my car anymore now that I have the scooter! It's bike or scooter everywhere
Anyway, I digress. When I did my CBT (Compulsory Basic Training - required by law in the UK before they will let you loose on the public highway on any kind of motorbike!) they told me that I should not wear steel-toecapped boots while riding a motorbike ... why do you suppose this is? I would have thought that steel toecaps would be just the very thing if you didn't want the expense of buying proper biker boots (and let's face it - I would look like **** riding a scooter in biker boots and full leathers! Lol!).
