    Who in the Portland area has the best selection of Klim gear? My current kit sucks. Atomic in Bend and Happy Trails in Boise are hours away (but doable). I'd like to find a place more convenient.

    I don't know about "best selection," but Pro Caliber had some last time I was in.

    Motosport Hillsboro, or whatever it's called, has had a decent selection when I've been in there.

    Portland...the newer one on the left side.
    Beaverton MC's has hit and miss stuff.

    BMW Tigard has some of their stuff also.

    None have a big selection.

    CycleBuy down in Coburg has a good selection at shows and online. Not sure if they have a retail store.

    Bob at CycleBuy is good people. Yes they have a small showroom at Coburg. Call before you make the trek to Coburg. Small Flying Creatures have told me Bob bought the KTM Dealership just south of Albany and will be moving that direction. I am not sure of the timeline so best call to avoid being at the wrong place.

    Yes Gary is going to relax a bit more and play with his property. I am guessing we will see more events at his place east of Shedd.

    Nothing but high praise for Brian at Atomic. Give him a call and chat for a while and he will point you in the right direction in Klim gear. When I was ready to order a new Klim jacket I was all set to hit the "process my order" key on the Atomic website when I decided to call Brian just to chat about my choice. After chatting about my riding he pointed me at a different Klim jacket. He pointed me towards the Overland and it's been perfect for my use. Really glad I called, he has also sent me a spare bolt kit for one of my helmets at no cost. He's good people!

    +1 for AtomicMoto. They do have a shop in Bend and quite a bit of stuff in stock. I tried on a couple different Klim pants there.

    Another suggestion to talk to Brian @ Atomic. He really knows their products.
    But good luck finding the store. AMHIK.

    If you ever get to Seattle, goto touratech, where they have lots of stuff there, more than I-90.

    I think I've got it nailed down to the Latitude or Overland. Were you able to get the sizing right over the phone?

    I ended up getting the Latitude jacket and pant at Columbia Motosports in Hood River. Nick and the cute girl got me fitted so I'm good to go. This dealer carries some great brands and are taking on the whole line of Klim. I think their taking on rotopax and Wolfman too. I would have saved hundreds if I had bought this stuff at the beginning.
