Someone may hear “Doc Wong Clinic”, and think of a small group of embarrassed patrons getting treated for their STD with some ancient Asian remedy. However, in this case you’ll actually be going to the clinic to get your STD! That’s right, Doc Wong Northwest is all about Sport-riding Technique Development (or STD for short)!  (snicker)

There’s nothing quite as nerve wracking, frustrating, and ultimately satisfying as completing a big ticket purchase.  Whether that’s the purchase of a house, a car, or even a motorcycle.  In this article I’m going to offer you some tips for getting to that finish line faster and with more money left in your pocket, for getting out and enjoying your new ride!

Next to a helmet, proper motorcycle boots are arguably the second most important piece of protection gear (not counting a back-protector).   If I were new to riding and strapped for cash, I would get an inexpensive helmet that was Snell/DOT approved, a basic textile jacket or used leather jacket (that included a decent back pad or back protector), inexpensive gloves, thick jeans, and spend the majority of my cash on good quality boots.  Seriously, there are many fragile bones and ligaments in our ankles and feet that are in an excellent location to get crushed, ripped, and torn off by even a relatively minor motorcycle crash if you aren’t wearing the proper boots.    In this article I’ll go over the various boots that I’ve used, and show you what I think may just be the perfect motorcycle boot for sport street / trackday riding!

“Why that one and not the other?” I ask.

“The other one is just too flashy and girly.”

“But you are a girl!”

“Yeah but I don’t need to advertise that to everyone!  Plus it’s just too…pink!”

“Ok.  Well that is a nice jacket even if it’s a bit plain.  It looks to be well constructed, has good venting and protective elements.  I think either are a great choice.”

Looking at the jacket again she says “Yeah, I just wish it had a little something to it.”
