History of Biker Boot Straps

Modern technology is something that we take for granted. Everything that we need is just a trip the store away. With that in mind why did it take so long for the millions of riders to just accept their pants flapping in the wind for so long while motorcycling? I really can’t answer that question. The only answer that I can give you is that nobody took the time to actually make a product that worked. That is until Biker Boot Straps came along. When I first started on this journey it takes me back to 1987 when I first started riding street bikes. With everything else available for the motorcyclist I always had a problem with my pants flying up while riding. I tried tape, rubber bands and even tucking my pants in my boots but nothing solved my problem.

While on a trip to Wisconsin for the 105th anniversary is when the drive for a solution became stronger than ever. After a long day of riding and shopping there they were on the lowest shelf at the back of the vendors display a set of pant hold downs. I was excited and disappointed all at the same time because I found the product that I longed for but I wasn’t the person that made them. During the installation of the new found product I discovered something else, they didn’t work. The clip was too big and the adjustment was under the boot and you stepped on it when you walked. My dreams of designing the perfect boot strap weren’t dead yet.

Coming home from that trip I couldn’t stop brain storming about that perfect boot strap and what would I call them. On arrival back in Chicago I started my research which led me to other products that didn’t work. The problem with most of the failed products was a bad clip or an adjustable strap that would not stay adjusted while riding. In my research I stapled bent and fiddled to make something that I could test to see if I would even like the feel while riding. The testing was a success when they stayed on there wasn’t a better feeling of confidence or let’s just be honest I felt cool on the highway.

In discovering it would work the next part was designing a good looking product that will hold up to everyday use. The one thing that was a given was that we had to use a custom sized strap like a custom fit baseball cap. We wanted to eliminate the adjustment so it could not get in the way or loosen up. The answer we came up with was using two sizes. The 6” strap fits most men while the 4” strap fits most women. That reasoning was a big part of our companies’ success. After finding the right clip we just needed a name. Since they were made for bikers and boot straps just fit we called our final product “Biker Boot Straps”.

With all that time that passed and all the life experiences I guess I just felt it was time to do something that mattered. After making it through our first year we are proud to say that business is booming and we have a great customer base. We have sent Biker Boot Straps as far as Australia, Sweden, and British Columbia. To have a part of creating a new motorcycle product and fulfilling the biker’s lifestyle is a dream come true.

    Earn up to $3500/month just by taking simple surveys online!

    I tried one of those online survey sites about 4 months ago that
    say all you have to do is spend a couple of minutes filling out
    some surveys and you will be making hundreds a day….. YEAH RIGHT, I didn’t make anything.

    I joined 7 of these stupid websites and I actually tried filling
    out a couple of surveys on each site and they took forever then at
    the end they wanted me to buy things or I couldn’t complete the
    survey.

    These are complete scams so be aware!!! I couldn’t believe they
    were even allowed to sell such bogus products.

    Then about 2 weeks ago I was watching the news and they had some
    vice presidents and marketing managers of some major multi million
    dollar companies talking about a site that they personally work
    with to pay consumers for their opinion, A site that actually just
    wants the “average Joe’s” honest opinion on products and services
    and is willing to pay big money to get them. for more information
