I needed some boots. How can you buy off the internet with out knowing the right size? So, I took a ride yesterday from Portland to Atomic-Moto in Bend to size up some boots. This guy Brian is knowledgeable, & a good listener. He put up with my interruptions, trying his best to address my concerns. After all , boots are a big ticket item. I couldn't find the "perfect boot", so I decided on the Gaerne G-Midland. Only time will tell, now. If anyone's in the market for what they sell, I can highly recommend them. Thanks for your patience, Brian.
