I am Booted Harleydude (aka "BHD"). Welcome to my personal website and my blog.
I am just your average guy-next-door who was married to the love-of-his-life and lived our marriage vows until my husband's untimely death in January 2021.
I enjoy boots, leather, and serving my community as a volunteer. I live in the Maryland 'burbs north and west of of Washington, D.C., USA.
I have ridden motorcycles since 1978. That explains the large motorcycle boot collection and variety of functional motorcycle gear that I wear when riding my Harley-Davidson Softail Slim motorcycle, and share information about.
Boots and leather are an avocation, but aren't all who I am. While I am now retired from full-time work, I continue to serve as a volunteer community leader, and pull on my work boots to help out elderly family, friends, and neighbors.
I am a cowboy at heart. I have ridden horses since I was a kid and iron horses since college. I owned and rode horses in amateur rodeos and around the hills of Southeastern Oklahoma in the past. That explains the large cowboy boot collection. I wore dress boots with dress clothes to work, and nowadays only wear them on dress-up occasions.
I wear boots as my choice of daily footwear when I go out. I have an extensive list of boot reviews on my boot wiki knowledgebase.
