$327 + $49 shipping for the same boots I bought at my local retailer for $400, where I was able to try them on and they had a full selection of sizes.

I don't have a bucket list, I have a post-bucket list. So far it includes
1) Coroner's report is to read "Death by misadventure."
2) Dixieland jazz band at my funeral.

Not sure, but even if 18% possible textile tax...I'm still ahead of the curve by several hundred dollars.

Huh. I was *told* they were Goretex -- I wonder if I was lied to. Where are you located that the price is $669?

I just took a look at mine, and don't see any label that tells me if they are "Rain" or Goretex. Does anyone know how to tell which is which?

Well sunny beaches. I was sold "Gore-Tex" but got boots that don't have this label.

Bi-Focal Reader Sunglasses

So sad to say, but I need 2.50 magnifier readers these day. Reading a GPS had become almost impossible. The cheap bifocal reader sunglasses solved the problem on a trip from Texas to Ushuaia. Here is a pair that looks similar to what I used: http://www.readingglassesshopper.com/sporty-driving-reading-sunglasses.html

With the success I had with the cheap ones, I decided to spring for a $150 pair of Maui Jim's with readers. The Maui Jims don't work for looking at an LCD screen because the polarization cancels out the image. Lesson learned, and I am back to the cheap unpolarized sunglass readers.

Kudos to the Gaerne Balanced Oil Boot. Totally waterproof. Comfortable and great for all-day and for walking. Reasonably good protection, although not for mx.

Best piece of equipment I've ever bought? I'd say it's a fiveway tie between my leather pants, leather jacket, gloves, boots, and helmet. They saved my ass (literally) when I decided to try out body surfing down the highway at 80mph a couple of weeks ago. All of these pieces were damaged enough that I would have been in trouble without them. I managed to walk away with nothing more than some aches and pains... and a bruised ego.

Wear your gear!

Totally Unrelated... Sort Of

After two rounds of spine fractures within 8 months (unforgiving guardrail at Grattan Raceway was the worst of them), I was not a happy camper. This really has been great. Then rehabbed a torn achilles on it in '08. Over 12,300,000 meters and rowing daily. The best. Concept 2 Model D.



This too. Loki liner. The best $25 riding product... hat, balaclava or throat gaiter. Thin in the helmet area so no fit issues.

Motoport Pants

I love my Motoport MeshKevlar Overpants: http://motoport.worldsecuresystems.c...sh_Kevlar_Pant

I am a commuter that won't comprimise on ATGATT, so when I found Motoport and their overpants I was elated. Unlike cheap overpants, they are durable, and still very easy to put on and take off even with tall boots on. Plus, they are custom tailored. What more could you want?

The quality of the pants make my PowerTrip jacket look like garbage.
