Yeah I'm looking to have them last 10 years or more, so was actually looking for a boot that could have a new sole put on if need be. Speaking of, do you know of a craftsman in the area that can do it? I have a pair of Merrell water proof slip on boots that are my daily wear boots in winter, love those things! Went to Bend alterations per your recommendation and they fixed the zipper on my tent for free! Also said that someday the sliders would fail and they would be $10 a piece to replace. If they had had the sliders in stock to do it I would have just gotten it over with.
Speaking of lots of miles, I've put 3000 on the KLX since I moved here in late November. Not bad considering it was (and sometimes still is...) winter! Got snowed on yesterday riding in Bend!
