This archival blog, covering the years before, during, and after my owning Stompers Boots is a big salute and...

THANK YOU

to all the inside boot crew staff and the outside family of friends who made this journey some of the best years of my life!

Mike and His Bikes

"My Harley friends didn’t care much for the beemers – and visa versa for the BMW guys who were snobbish towards the Harleys.  Always big fun then and now."

—Mike McNamee

Over the years -- my motorcycles, my boots, my leather.  It appears my ultimate destination was to be owning my own boot store!  You youngsters can't appreciate what it was like to nab my first black t-shirt and my first motorcycle in 1962.  Man, how many shades of black are there now? LOL.

[Note: Several of the picts go back some 50+ years.  Recovered negatives in dust covered boxes have taken the toll -- thus you will see some scratches and dust marks on them.]
